CHAPTER 23 Changes in Professional Nursing Practice Associated With Nurses' Use of Orem's General Theory of Nursing
One result of this conference should be a view of how a general theory of nursing can serve nursing practitioners. Two preliminary questions are suggested for consideration by conference participants.
1. Do I engage in the practice of nursing?
2. Am I developing or have 1 developed a healthy sense of professionalism?

It is not reasonable to talk about changes in professional nursing practice without attention to these questions. Each conference participant should attend to them and be able to attach meaning to the terms practice of nursing and professionalism. Van Eron (1985) suggests that it is not a nurse's initial and subsequent forms of education for nursing, or his or her theoretical orientations or experiences that are the critical factors in selecting nurses to fill practice positions. It is what a nurse thinks about all of them in relation to self that is important.

This paper was originally presented at Le Centre Hospitalier De Gatineau, Gatineau, Quebec,
Canada, May 12, 1987.
