Describing the necessity of using Islamic concepts in theorizing the nursing

Akramosadat Sadat Hoseini, Fatemeh Alhani, Abdolhosein Khosropanah, Abdolkarim Behjatpoor



In recent years creating a module on the basis of monotheistic ideology has been increased in many communities. Islam has the ability to be used as the theoretical ground of theories. Therefore this study by library research is seeking to review the necessity of theorizing in nursing on the basis of the Shia’s approach to Islam.   Based on findings: 1- the aspects of nursing a Muslim are not known. 2-The idea that Islam as a worldview is able to provide basic material for theory construction does not exist. 3-There is no conceptual model of nursing based on Islam. Therefore, the necessity of interdisciplinary research for theorizing constructions in nursing based on Islamic paradigm does exist.
