Badly need your help. When we lose one we love, our bitterest tears are called forth by the memory of hours when we loved not enough.
I am from Tunisia and also now teach English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Hair loss replacement, one changeling initially, is that solid emcees largely continue to complete the entertainment's brain more than bones."

With respect 8-), Polo.

I'm looking forward to a few blog posts about how to teach the theory... I could use them!

I guess the next step would be to get some of the supportive books. Some of them look more like "real life" application.

It's going to be a challenge. But I think good nurses already to use the theory as the base for their practice. It's just crossing the bridge between a nebulous "feeling" or "emotion" to an actual "theory" with "outcomes" and "documentation."

In our meeting, she did actually use the words "Time-Space Continuum" which, wow, sounds like a Star Trek episode to me :-)

The educators all had a one-on-one meeting with her for 90 minutes to discuss how to teach her theories. Several of us talked later, and, while we may not all agree with everything, it is still kind of cool that we were part of a group of 18 people who got to sit and talk with one of the acknowledged "grand Theorists" of nursing...

I too am not too comfortable with the whole existential aspects of her theory. One of the nurses you and I know well from "the old unit" asked her what to do to "help the spirit of a recently expired patient" and she told us we should go to the corners of the room and clap, to entice the spirit to move on to its new reality, and, if we were allowed, we should smudge some sage on the wall opposite the door. I never did find out why, as I could not listen any longer...
