San Jose State University School of Nursing The Omaha System User Module for the Nursing Centers Without Walls: Primary Health Care on the Move (Division of Nursing, United States Department of Health and Human Services, #lD10NU30061) by Jayne Cohen DNSc, RNC, Program Director; Marian Yoder EdD, RN, Clinical Coordinator; Henrietta Hamilton, BSN, RN; and Julie Cheitlin Cherry, MS, RN. The Omaha System terms, codes, and definitions are not held under copyright. All rights reserved. Conceptual Framework The Omaha System was developed through the efforts of many health professionals over a fifteen year period. The System has gained acceptance as a documentation tool for community health providers. Creators of the Omaha System acknowledge the problem solving process as the basis for its model. The Omaha System provides a link between the nursing process and the real world of practicing nursing in the community. Through this module, you will become familier with the Omaha System and how to apply it to your practice in community-based care settings. It is hoped you will find this learning experience fun and informative. Using the Omaha System for documentation is an efficient and time saving tool. The Omaha System Model Objective: To diagram a model depicting the Omaha System with its three main components and six steps of the nursing process. To portray the interactive nature of the nurse-client relationship, nursing process, and clinical judgment, a circular model is used (see page seven of the Omaha book). The broken lines between all parts of the model allow flow in any direction, permit overlapping of activities, and maintain an open system. The model reflects the complex, ever changing environment in which health care is delivered to clients in the community. The three components of the Omaha System Model that depict the family nursing process are; the individual or family, the nursing activities, and the nurse/client relationship. Placed at the center of the model is the individual. family. or community. The client is the focus of the process, and therefore, is placed at the core of the model. The second layer contains the nursing activities. These activities are nursing actions that affect the client's or family's state of health or wellness. The outer layer of the model represents the relationship of the practitioner and client. A caring relationship is vital to the success of the nursing process using the Omaha System. Activity #1: List the three components of the Omaha System Model depicting the problem solving process.
