Further, the brief discussion of models of man led me to question the merits of different models of man from a uniquely nursing perspective. Additionally, the authorfound only one study in her cursory literature review which dealt with the interactive domains of environments and nursing actions. Could it be that the domain of environment is ill conceptualized so that the limitation is a perceived but not a real one?
