You are required to submit a scholarly paper in which you will identify, describe, research, and apply the concepts that underlie your personal philosophy for professional nursing practice.
This will help you identify your own values and beliefs about the established metaparadigms and metatheories of the discipline. It will also help you identify and articulate concepts relevant to your specific practice.
Your paper should follow a format that includes:
�Nursing Autobiography: A brief (1 page) discussion of your background in nursing.
�The Four Metaparadigms: Identification, discussion, and documentation from the literature of your perspective on the basic four metaparadigms/concepts of patient, nurse, health, and environment.
�Two Practice-Specific Concepts: Identification, discussion, and documentation from the literature of your perspective on at least two
�List of Propositions: A numbered list of at least five propositions or assumption statements that clearly connect the concepts described.
