    The only thing I can think of that would be this would be related to the Metaparadigm of Nursing.

    A concept is a word or phrase that summarizes a phenomenon, such as an idea, an observation, or an experience. Each concept is a tool that provides a mental image that facilitates communication about and understanding of the phenomenon. A concept is not a real thing but rather is a way to articulate a more or less abstract phenomenon.

    A proposition is a statement about a concept or a statement of the relation between 2 or more concepts.
    • A nonrelational proposition that states the meaning of a concept is called a constitutive definition.
    • A nonrelational proposition that states how a concept is observed or measured is called an operational definition.


    A relational proposition asserts the relation, or linkage, between 2 or more concepts. In other words, it is a relational statement that asserts that there is a connection (e.g., x is related to y).

    Not sure if that's what you were looking for, but that's the only thing I could think of when I saw your post asking what a conceptual non-relational proposition is.

    Here is an example:

    The four concepts of nursing are human beings, environment, health, and nursing. The non relational propositions are definitions of the four concepts, and the relational propositions link the concepts together, using the definitions. Specifically, the first relational proposition links human beings and health; stating that nursing is concerned with principles and laws that govern health. Health is defined as human processes of living and dying. The second relational proposition links human beings and environment as nursing is concerned with human health experiences within the context of the environment. The third links nursing and health; stating that nursing is concerned with nursing actions that are beneficial to human beings and the final relational proposition links human beings, health, and environment together as nursing is concerned with health, recognizing that human beings are in a continuous relationship with environments (Fawcett, 2005).
