Used extensively in nursing education, Betty Neuman's systems model reflects nursing's interest in holism and in the influence of environment on health. This volume opens with a brief biography of Betty Neuman and continues with a succinct discussion of her theory that outlines its origins, assumptions, and the major concepts of the meta-paradigm of nursing. It continues with a presentation of the propositions of the conceptual model, examples for application to practice and research, classic works, critiques and research, and a glossary of important terms. Ideally suited as a supplementary text, Betty Neuman is essential reading for the undergraduate nursing student as well as the more advanced student or nurse interested in a quick review.
