    if you have a copy of taber's cyclopedic medical dictionary you will find a section in the appendix of conceptual models and theories of nursing. a breakdown of callista roy's adaptation model is included.

    I am so confused by it too. As a first year nursing student who is overwhelmed by info overload, I find it very frustrating that all of our clinical paperwork must be filled out according to the Roy Model yet NO ONE has explained it very well. In fact I am beginning to wonder if any of my instructors understand it.

    I did find the article Daytonite linked while doing my own research - it is helpful but I still can't grasp how it all applies to our Nursing Process Worksheet and four mode assessment sheet that must be filled out for clinicals.

    thanks for listening to my rant

    it pretty much follows the 5 traditional steps of the nursing process. if you follow them in doing your nursing process worksheets, you are pretty much following roy. i answer nursing care plan questions on allnurses using this concept all the time. look at my responses on this thread: http://allnurses.com/general-nursing...ns-286986.html - help with care plans. once you fill out this clinical paperwork of yours a few times you will understand it better and it will make more sense.

    I need help terribly, I thought I was the only individual who has trouble with Roy. Any extra learning aids and advice are so welcome.
