Powers and Knapp (2006, p. 121) define paradigm as patterns or systems of beliefs (or worldviews) about science and knowledge within and across disciplines, whereas McKean (2005) defines paradigm as a model or pattern. From these two definitions you could conclude that a paradigm is a pattern of beliefs that can be represented in model form; however, though the terms paradigm, model, and pattern work well together, they are not synonyms and should not be treated as such, because of the potential for confusion.

Nightingale (1859/1992) also operated on selected assumptions, including the benefit of fresh air, light, and beef-tea to patient recovery. However, assumptions are not always evident; they may be embedded within concepts, variables, and propositions and go unrecognized. Unrecognized assumptions may be problematic if they influence the proposition unexpectedly.

It would be almost impossible to empirically explore the impact of feelings, perceptions, emotions, faith, experiences, and intuition on health and wellness; however, many nursing phenomena involve these, or similar, qualitative concepts.

While this study is not empirically based, it might begin to provide insight to an important patient safety issue, especially since most, if not all, patient records are becoming electronically based.
