Orlando Theory Critique
Ida Jean Orlando 1926-
Theory of the Nursing Process Discipline
Orlandos theory was developed in the late 1950s from observations she recorded between a nurse and patient. Despite her efforts she was only able to categorize the records as good or bad nursing. It then dawned on her that both the formulations for good and bad nursing were contained in the records. From these observations she formulated the deliberative nursing process. The role of the nurse is to find out and meet the patients immediate need for help. The patients presenting behaviour may be a plea for help however the help needed may not be what it appears to be. Therefore nurses need to use their perception thoughts about the perception or the feeling engendered from their thoughts to explore with patients the meaning of their behaviour. This process helps the nurse find out the nature of the distress and what help the patient needs. Orlandos theory remains one the of the most effective practice theories available.
