Margaret Newman
Health as Expanding Consciousness


Volume: 6
Other Titles in:
Nursing Theory

February 1993 | 64 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Margaret Newman is one of the pre-eminent nursing theorists whose qualitative theories and methods have expanded the scientific base for the field. Her theory defines health as the unfolding or expanding of consciousness and nursing as an integrative force that focuses on the wholeness of the person.

This volume offers a clear guide to applying theory to practice with individual, family and community health. Marchione's work reflects several years of experimentation and application of Newman's theory.
