The purpose of this paper is to elaborate the ethos of humanbecoming with the core knowings of living quality. This requires describing in more detail the tenets of dignity-reverence, awe, betrayal, and shame-and specifying the tenets further with the newknowings arising from the humanbecoming hermeneutic sciencing of Lives of Others. The author introduces the newly conceptualized paradoxes, revering-betraying and aweing-shaming.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the influence of applying Orem's self-care framework practice methodology on the content and comprehensiveness of a case study about a woman who denied having self-care deficits. The discussion begins with presentation of the case as it might have been found in a classroom or health professions journal and contrasts this with application of Orem's self-care framework practice methodology to illustrate how much more comprehensive the content of the case study is and how well it highlights the role of the primary care nurse practitioner in complex geriatric care...

The authors of this article integrate two historically parallel yet disparate fields of nursing, caring science theory and nursing quantum leadership science. Through a nursing, discipline-specific unitary paradigm lens, intersecting principles of caring science and quantum leadership science are uncovered. The result is a model for unitary, discipline-specific, nursing healthcare leadership: Quantum Caring Healthcare Leadership. Ontological congruence is uncovered among the philosophical-ethical-theoretical principles of caring science and the unifying disciplinary structural concepts from quantum leadership...

In reflecting on the personal experience of moving beyond life as a nurse academician, the author explored the phenomenon of living with ambiguity in the teaching-learning endeavor. From the stories of new graduates of baccalaureate nursing programs, comfort-discomfort, sureness-unsureness, and confirming-not confirming arose as paradoxical rhythms of the experience of living with ambiguity. Acknowledging the challenge of creating sacred space in the contemporary nursing curriculum for living with ambiguity and not knowing, the author provided insights into the importance of creating a safe, sacred space with trusted faculty mentors to allow students to begin a journey where discovery and inquiry are valued in their process of becoming competent professional nurses on a never-ending journey of coming to know...

This column focuses on the transformative nature of human-animal relationships. In the context of nursing, these relationships are clearly therapeutic for veterans recovering from trauma. The time is right to begin to explore the science behind such unique healing relationships and the potential connection to nursing science.

Access to essential health-promoting nursing care is increasingly facilitated through the expanding scope and capabilities provided through the utilization of telehealth technologies. Telehealth technologies facilitate the nursing process with clients at a distance in multiple ways, such as video conferencing, video conferencing with peripheral diagnostic tools, and store and forward modalities. Nursing care needs to remain the focus of care, but technology is a useful ancillary tool to help clients achieve health outcomes...

To examine if the application of Orem's self-care model could improve self-care knowledge, attitudes, practices, and respiratory conditions of trauma patients with chest tubes, a quasi-experimental study was conducted. The participants were assigned to two groups-namely, Orem's model and routine care. Although the patients' self-care knowledge, attitudes, and practices were improved in both groups over the course of 3 days since the initial assessments, there was a greater degree of improvement in the experimental group than that in the control group...

Telehealth utilizes technology that connects nurses and persons receiving healthcare services. Rather than focusing on telehealth as a financial burden or a disruptive technology, telehealth nursing should be considered an opportunity to operationalize and transform the art of care, especially when it is guided by nursing theory.

Evidence synthesis is the concern of this column. Both quantitative and qualitative evidence synthesis are considered using the Cochrane and Joanna Briggs Institute protocols as a means of explanation. Finally, issues related to qualitative synthesis are entertained.

Engaging in early and ongoing self-reflection during interpretive phenomenological research is critical for ensuring trustworthiness or rigor. However, the lack of guidelines and clarity about the role of self-reflection in this methodology creates both theoretical and procedural confusion. The purpose of this article is to describe key philosophical underpinnings, characteristics, and hallmarks of the process of self-reflection in interpretive phenomenological investigation and to provide a list of guidelines that facilitate this process...

Trauma, unfortunately, is an all too common part of today's world. The construct posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been the dominant paradigm to guide researchers and clinicians in the United States and around the world in their efforts to understand and help persons who have experienced trauma. However, PTSD as a diagnosis and this theoretical construct has some problems and limitations, particularly when considered from a global perspective. The author explores the less widely studied construct of posttraumatic growth (PTG) as a phenomenon that avoids some of the problems of PTSD and asks the question: Does it represent a paradigm shift or a paradox? The author seeks to consider this issue from a global perspective and discusses Syrian refugees as a case study...

Human-animal relationships have been documented for centuries. Animals are used for many purposes, such as enhancing human health, wellness, and companionship, to name a few. The human-animal relationship is different for every person and requires a holistic perspective. Nurses are interested in relationships that are caring, natural, and therapeutic. Research supports the profound and multifaceted health benefits of the human-animal bond. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the relationship between the human-animal connection and nursing science...

Although well positioned to work with families of young children, nurses do not yet have a theory that guides practice and research by relating infant sleep to child and family development. The authors of this paper describe a proposed theory that combines Bronfenbrenner's bioecological theory of human development with the Barnard model of parent-child interaction to inform nursing practice and research related to infant sleep and optimizing child and family development. The theory focuses on sustainability of change in family processes and infant sleep, with a goal of optimizing family wellness as the proximal environment for child development...

A paradox is an idea stated as an unexpected contradictory term, showing apparent opposing thoughts. Mattering-not mattering is a paradox that may surface as persons experience feeling that they are significant and feeling concern from others in light of not feeling significant or concern from others as they are living quality. A case study of homelessness will be used to illustrate the ethical paradox from the humanbecoming ethos of understanding with implications for nurse practice.

There has been much written about the importance of care that is centered on persons and their loved ones. Patient-centered care has been central to nursing practice and unique nursing knowledge. This central focus provides an opportunity for nurses to develop policies that may affect practice so that practice is consistent with a distinctive knowledge base. The purpose of this paper is to discuss patient-centered care and nursing theory.

The author in this article explores the humanbecoming dignity tenet of shame. Shame is examined through an extensive literature review, through storytelling, and through surveying humanbecoming inquiries of sadness, feeling fear, feeling overwhelmed, and feeling disrespected.

The purpose of this descriptive study was to co-create oral histories of Midwestern farm widows. Rural widows constitute a vulnerable population due to issues of bereavement and depression compounded by emotional and geographical isolation. A farm widow is often forced to maintain viability of the farm for the family's livelihood. Oral history interviews with nine Midwest farm widows were conducted and analyzed. Three overarching themes emerged: competence, industriousness, and inner strength. Women shared stories of overcoming insurmountable obstacles...
