A Discussion on Meta-paradigms of the Nursing Domain
Over the lastthree decades, there has been emergence of new meta-paradigms in thenursing field. The meta-paradigms that have been emerging comprisecaring science and conscious dying. This essay will explain the twometa-paradigms and their essence in the health of the nursing field.
Caring science isa principal used in healing to show how the nurses are supposed toimprove their practice with the aim of improving the servicesrendered to the patients (Plummer& Molzahn, 2009).With the introduction ofthe caring science, the nurses have been striving towards upholdingmoral values, being educative and highly professional in theirpractices. The improved performance has been due to the respect ofhuman dignity.
Conscious dying relies on creating awareness on the mortalcompassionate ontology of human beings about life. The theoryprimarily creates sentience amongst the nurses on the reality oflosing life and the whole life cycle that affects the peoplepsychologically as the life returns to its place (Rosa,Estes & Watson, 2017). The ideas concerning thedeath of people and creating awareness about death have led to thedevelopment of conscious dying theory.
The combinationof the two approaches has resulted in an appearance of a newmeta-paradigm in the nursing field. The standard has helped inimproving the practices in the nursing field. The new paradigm ismade purposely to create awareness amongst the nurses on the way theyshould relate with the patients and the families of the patients(Rosa, 2014). The new model will also inspire the nurses to have thepersonal growth and development in their career as well as coming upwith better ways of handling the patients. In conclusion, the theoryof caring science and conscious dying has significantly improved thepractices by the nurses and the patients have been able to obtainquality services.
