What is her Science of Unitary Human Beings?
Petiprin (2016), reveals the following regarding, Martha E. Rogers’ Theory of Unitary Human Beings views nursing as both a science and an art. The uniqueness of nursing, like any other science, is in the phenomenon central to its focus. The purpose of nurses is to promote health and well-being for all persons wherever they are. The development of Rogers’ abstract system was strongly influenced by an early grounding in arts, as well as a background in science and interest in space. The science of unitary human beings began as a synthesis of ideas and facts (para. 1).
