Abstract

ABSTRACT: The Theory of Nursing for the Whole Person (TNWP) is a wholistic theory that focuses on the integration of body, mind, spirit, individual, family, and community. A qualitative descriptive research study explored Oral Roberts University graduates' perceptions of their use of the TNWP in practice. Analysis revealed six major themes. Respondents felt that the TNWP was a necessary tool to truly care for patients.
