3 Faye Abdellah “Nursing research and theorist” “First woman to become a surgeon general as a nurse” “Influenced nursing theory aimed towards the patient” “Graduated with a Doctoral degree from Columbia University” “Theory revolved around the idea that nurses should make decisions competently and focus primarily on the patient. Abdellah theorized 21 problems to help influence this idea” (Nursing Theories: Changing the World…. One Step at a Time(Faye G. Abdellah), 2009) Image retrieved from the American Nurses Association website at

9 Application of Theory related to Rehabilitation Nursing Physiological- PAIN, HYGIENE, SAFETY, ELIMINATION, HEALING 1 Psychological-TRAUMA, EMOTIONS, COGNITIVE FUNCTION 1 Sociological- Environmental Factors, Family Dynamics 1

10 How the 21 Problems Theory Influences Future uses in Practice and Potential Limitations of these Concepts: Future Uses in Practice: Framework relates to all fields and specialties of nursing, this was a theory based off of research so further innovations in research could help clarify or breakdown topics into specialty practice standards. For ex: how can hygiene and activity better be applied to a newborn rather than remaining generalized. Potential Limitations include: research funding, standards of care, healthcare laws and regulations, and the later effects of a nursing shortage can affect the number of nursing educators and researchers in the future.

11 Conclusion The 21 Problems theorized by Faye Abdellah directly relate to nursing care in all specialties. It focuses on patient care overall and can be utilized in nursing to provide an outline that encompasses all aspects of psychological, physiological, and sociological needs. The theory also ensures that the nurse taking care of the patient practices competent care and makes precise nursing judgements.
