Science of Unitary Human Beings

a conceptual model and theory of nursing proposed by Martha Rogers in 1970. Its four basic concepts focus on the nature and direction of "unitary human development": (1) human and environmental energy fields, (2) complete and continuous openness of the energy fields, (3) human energy fields perceived as single waves that give identity to a field, and (4) "pandimensionality," a nonlinear domain without spatial or temporal attributes. See also Rogers, Martha E.

Science of Unitary Human Beings

A conceptual model of nursing developed by Martha Rogers. The human being and the environment are conceived of as being unitary, patterned, open, and pandimensional energy fields. The goal of nursing is to promote human betterment wherever people are.
