Models of nursing (MON) are care plans and frameworks that help focus the nursing care given to each individual patient to provide consistent and a high standard of nursing (Aggleton & Chalmers, 2000). The nursing process (NP) is the way nurses deliver care to each patient, based and supported by nursing theories and philosophies. The NP involves collecting and analysing information about each patient to understand the potential health problems developing for the condition being treated (Kozier et al, 2008). The NP is divided into four stages; assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. MON and the NP work together by making a framework or care plan of nursing care to achieve goals and a desired outcome for each patient (Orpet & Welsh, 2011). This is done by monitoring, reassessing and understanding each patient and the health problems that can occur, so each member of the nursing team can be working towards the same goals and outcomes (Aggleton & Chalmers, 2000). Most of the MONs’ originate from the Roper, Logan & Tierney (RLT) model, developed in 1980, which was based on Henderson’s activities of daily living (ADL). The RLT model was created to assess each patient’s dependence or independence of each ADL, which are things they do in everyday life. The activities are assessed on admission and the reassessed each day of hospitalisation, so the patient progress can be reviewed and changes can be made to the nursing care. In recent years there has been the development of the veterinary nurse models (The Ability and Myerscough models), based on the RLT model. The NP provides a systematic way of nursing and the approach to care depends on the nurse providing it (Aggleton & Chalmers, 2000). The development of frameworks and MON allows the nurse to be able to...
