SANTOS RUIZ, S.; LOPEZ PARRA, M.; VAREZ PELAEZ, S. y ABRIL SABATER, D.. Does professional scope change the nursing conceptualization?: Comparative study between medicine and surgical nurses. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2009, n.17. ISSN 1695-6141.
The nursing profession has an image stereotyped by society; the vision of the paradigm of the categorization dominating their training. That is the reason why it is interesting to know what the nurses think about their own discipline through the study of the elements of the nursing methaparadigm while comparing whether or not the specialty of the area modifies our perspective. Objective: To analyze and compare the nurse perspective on the elements of the metaparadigm among surgical nurses and medical nurses. Method: Comparative, observational, cross-sectional study. Using a questionnaire of our own elaboration between April - May, 2006. Results: 40 nurses of the surgical area and 61 of the medical area. Age 38±9 in surgery, 34,5±9 in medicine. Years of work experience: 16±11 and 12±8. Henderson Model guided their training. For the most part, they identify themselves with nursing definitions based on Henderson, health based on Erickson, environment based on Roy and Henderson and person founded on Travelbee. Conclusions: The nursing areas studied do not modify the perspective on the elements of the methaparadigm.
