assignments, she realized the assignment was based on the specifics of what procedures the patient was having performed and it overlooked seeing the patient as a whole (Artinian, West, & Conger, 2011) Madeleine Leininger is known for the Cultural Care Diversity and University theory. This theory is about nursing care of people considering their cultural heritage and ways of life. This model makes the nurse address every aspect of the patient's cultural beliefs and honor them when providing care to these patients. Using this model could help in understanding the different cultures when faced with patients who may not have the same beliefs as your own ("Madeleine Leininger", 2016). I think the first theorist applies to me the most. I like to address the patient as a whole when considering how to meet their needs. I try not to stereotype when getting a report from another nurse. I like to draw from my own experiences. I try to make my patients comfortable in knowing that I take all of their needs related to health care serious. Without meeting some of their basis needs, trust may be hard to achieve. References: Barbara M Artinian, R., Katharine S. West, M., & Margaret Conger, E. (2011).
