Education:Biological science teacher Assistant Director of School of Nursing

Her early nursing experiences included clinical roles: practice roles as a staff nurse in medical-surgical and pediatric settings, OR, assistant director of nursing in a general hospital; nursing education as a teacher of biological sciences in a nursing program and as an assistant director of a school of nursing. She served as a nurse consultant with the Indiana State Board of Health from 1949-1957, and later with the Office of Education for the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. 5Theoretical Sources & InfluencesEugenia K. Spaulding-great friend & teacher only
Cites no particular nursing leader as a direct influence on her work.
Does cite many other nurses works in terms of their contributions to nursing:Abdullah, Henderson, Johnson, King, Levine, Nightingale, Orlando, Peplau, Riehl, Rogers, Roy, Travelbee, and Weidenbach, et alCites numerous other authors from other disciplines:Chester Barnard, Rene Dubos, Robert Katz, Ernest Nagel, Hans Selye, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, et al
Between 1949 and 1959, she began to develop ideas regarding the uniqueness of nursing in an effort to clarify the subject matter of nursing in general. She questioned the domain and boundaries of nursing as a field of practice and a field of knowledge. Her theory of nursing evolved over the course of four decades as ideas were developed and refined in an attempt to help formalize a framework by which to organize nursing knowledge. The experiences of her personal nursing career, her studies in the areas of formal logic and metaphysics, and her abilities to reflect as well as her collaborations with students, practitioners, researchers, educators, administrators and scholars challenged her and aided in the development of a general theory of nursing.

1949-1959Began to develop ideas regarding the uniqueness of nursing
In effort to formalize a framework by which to organize nursing knowledge, she asked the following questions
1949-1959: While Orem was working as a nurse consultant with Indiana State Board of Health (traveling around observing and talking to nurses), she recognized the ability of nurses to do nursing, but inability to talk about nursing. These questions were derived from the need to understand the subject matter of nursing in general9OriginsWhat is nursing?How was it different from other disciplines? How was it similar?What is the domain and what are the boundaries of nursing as a field of practice and a field of knowledge?What condition exists when judgments are made that people need nursing?
(Answer: The inabilities of people to care for themselves at times when they need assistance because of their state of personal health)
10Ideas evolved from:
Unique experiences of her personal nursing career
Observations in practice
Study of formal logic and metaphysics
Use of resources from many fields
Abilities in methods of reflect and questioning
Collaborations with students, practitioners,researchers, educators, administrators and scholars
