Levine Conservation Model

  1. 0
    Hi,

    I am doing a Nursing Theory presentation on Levine's Conservation Model and I am having trouble locating an actual pictorial model depicting her assumptions/concepts. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Paula

    I am also working on a presentation of Levine's model. If someone sends you a pictorial will you send it to me also?

    levine's theory sources is quite very limited. If anybody can provide information on levine's theory and its application, I would appreciate it very much, much very much if it is soon enough.

    Hey Y'all

    Ol' country fellow here that kinda likes to philosophise. Have a BA in LiberalArts from long ago era, but was one of those ADN grads who were taught to be "technical nurses". In fact, that suited me then and still suits me now. So never gave a "philosophy" of Nursing much thought. Recently used the analogy (in an email) "like expecting a WalMart sales clerk to take Economics 101".

    But got interested in this thread (and a similar one about 'presentation' of a particular 'caring theory' and would pass on a couple of websites:

    www,valdosta.edu/nursing/history_theory

    www.sandiego.edu/nursing/theory

    My contribution is that 'caring' is built into our DNA. Unescapable. When paleotologists dig the bones of our ancestors they use words like "hominoid" to describe them. Until they find the healed bones and permanent orthopedic injuries in those bones that indicate that one individual was 'nursed' back to health and/or 'nurtured' through life by others. Then they say "human".

    I care therefore I am.
