Transcript of Nola J. Pender

Nola J. Pender, PhD, RN, FAAN
Overview of Theory

• Nola J Pender’s theory’s purpose is to aid nurses in helping their patients identify health risk factors as well as beneficial practices in order to help the patients actively determine which behaviors will result in achieving optimum health.

• The Health Promotion Model is based on eight assessment nursing beliefs, all of which can be determined as points of potential nursing intervention.

• The key nursing concepts include a consideration of:
o Person
o Environment
o Nursing
o Health
o Illnesses

• The components of Dr. Pender’s Health Promotion Model focuses on three areas:
o Individual patient’s characteristics and experiences
o Behavior-specific cognition and affect
o Behavioral outcomes

Contributions to Nursing & Healthcare
Dr. Pender’s contributions to nursing and health care include:

• The development of the Health Promotion Model as this tool is utilized in a variety of settings to help patients throughout their life span improve their health by considering and altering risk factors, individual behavioral choices, and their environment.

• Educating nursing students at the baccalaureate, masters, and PhD levels, which has promoted higher education for nursing lending credence not only to nursing science but advancement of nursing professionalism.

• Research studies which have validated the importance of the patient taking an active role in achieving an individualized optimum health status.

Contributions to Nursing & Healthcare cont.
• Affiliations with research societies and task forces which promote not only disease prevention

• Nola J Pender, PhD, RN, FAAN is a Professor Emerita at the University of Michigan School of Nursing and is the developer of the Health Promotion Model

• Dr. Pender currently serves as a Distinguished Professor at Loyola University School of Nursing in Chicago

• Nola J Pender has served as a nursing educator for over forty years.

• Dr. Pender has educated nursing students at the baccalaureate, masters, and PhD levels and has mentored postdoctoral fellows.

• Dr. Pender has won numerous awards and has been affiliated with a multitude of research societies during her nursing and educational career.

• I have been a cardiovascular intensive care unit nurse for eight years. My patient practice is primarily focused around caring for patients with both cardiac and lung disease, some of which can be directly linked to life choices including lack of preventative care, poor dietary and exercise practices, and the use of substances which have contributed to their cardiovascular and pulmonary disease processes.

• I am very interested in researching Nola J Pender’s Health Promotion Model practices as her theory can be applied to my practice in aiding and educating my patients regarding their disease process, preventative care, and can assist them in restoring and improving their health following their cardiac or pulmonary surgical interventions.

• I can directly link Nola J. Pender’s theory to my practice in several ways:

o Through continuing to pursue an advanced understanding of the Health Promotion Model and applying it to the methods I use to educate my patients regarding their behavioral choices, environment and risk factors I can help them not only understand how these factors contributed to their cardiac and pulmonary disease processes but also help them achieve optimum restoration and improvement of health following their surgical intervention and during their recovery and rehabilitation phases.

o Through applying the Health Promotion Model to my own personal healthcare practices, I can hopefully not only influence my patients, families, and even my own family, but can actually demonstrate and describe how it has impacted my health and promoted my personal best possible health.

o Through familiarizing other practitioners in my field including my co-workers with the Health Promotion Model and its benefits which would ultimately impact a great number of patients and their families.
