Imagining Nursing Practice: The Neuman Systems Model in 2050
Nursing Science Quarterly
The NSM is one of several instantly recognized and widely used conceptual models of nursing. As is true of all conceptual models of any discipline, the function of the NSM is to provide a broad perspective of phenomena, an umbrella for the more specific activities undertaken by members of the discipline. The NSM represents a way of viewing phenomena within the world of healthcare from the perspectives of clients and caregivers. Four long-standing members of the Board of Trustees of Neuman Systems Model International are honored to have the opportunity to share thoughts about the use of the NSM in mid-21st century nursing practice.
