Nursing Theory and Research

A collection of nursing theory from around the world.

The Nursing Theory Page is a collaborative effort by an international group interested in developing a collection of resources about nursing theories throughout the world. The project began on 21 May 96 and will always be a work in progress.

The Nursing Theory Page simply links pages built and maintained by others who have knowledge about a theory.

If you would like to contribute, but haven't yet built a web page, that barrier can be overcome. Let's talk about your ideas Please send us a note.


Can't find the theory you're looking for?

Unfortunately, we haven't yet found or created an Internet presence for some theorists. We have had mail from nurses looking for websites for Dorothy Johnson and Marilyn Friedman's Family Nursing Model. Pages for Joyce Travelbee and Joyce Fitzpatrick are under construction. If you are knowledgeable about a theory and would like to create and maintain a page, please contact us to discuss your ideas.

If you know of a website that we should link, please let us know.
