Dorothea Orem main focus was on Self-care. She focused on patients’ actions to meet their own needs (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p.41). Orem described self-care as behavior directed by individuals to themselves or their environments to regulate factors that affect their own development and functioning in the interest of life, health, or well-being (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p. 41). To care for oneself the patient is influenced by ten internal and external factors called basic conditioning which includes: age, gender, developmental state, health state, sociocultural orientation, healthcare system factors such as medical diagnostics and treatment modalities, family system factors, patterns of living, environmental factors, and resources availability and adequacy (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p. 41). This practice is directed toward helping people meet their own and their dependent others’ therapeutic self-care demands (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p. 42).

I use this theory in my current nursing practice. Prison nursing is a lot different from hospital nursing. When in the hospital you see an older gentleman and are instantly reminded of your own father, grandfather, or male-figure in your life. You may think that you get to do everything you can to help him get better and are able to wait on him hand and foot, of course in a professional, nurturing, healing way. However, in prison, that older gentleman is a violent, destructive man who is actually just trying to manipulate you into getting what they want because everything available in a hospital is not available in a prison. Narcotics is a big one! In a hospital you probably have administered more Dilaudid and Morphine than you have Tylenol. In prison, those narcotic medications are not even on site to use. Now also in prison, this older gentleman may have been incarcerated since the 60’s and has not had contact with people from the outside since he was incarcerated and can use illness and sickness to feel the touch of another person which is 100% unacceptable and is actually terms for termination if done inappropriately. To explain this better, in the hospital your patient may request a cool towel for their head and just want to hold your hand for a minute. You as the nurse care for the patient and do just that. In prison, you can provide the cool towel but you cannot place it on them nor hold their hand for minute. You must maintain your nursing professional but encourage them to care for themselves as well. I use the theory of self-care to help heal the patient themselves both physically and emotionally while preventing them from manipulating me and while also helping them help-themselves in order to return to their cell.

Madeleine Leininger’s Theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality focuses on the discovery of human care diversities and universalities and ways to provide culturally congruent care to people (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p.47). Leininger’s theory basically goes on to explain that nurses should care for their patients based of the patients culture. Every nurse uses this practice including myself because the patients culture and views plays a big role in the way they manage their health. Leininger’s practice is directed toward improving and providing culturally congruent care to people (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p. 48).

I also have to use this model in my nursing practice along with other nurses in hospital settings. I preciously mentioned, the patients culture makes up their health care practices. The nurse knows their own culture and subculture and particular variabilities, strengths, and assets but the nurse must also be open to learning and knowing about other cultures to provide adequate care that does not disrespect the patient or family (Kearney-Nunnery 2020 p. 49).
