This is really a noble organization. People who work there helping those who need help deserve to be respected by everyone. They are not scared to go to the countries of the third world, where there are a lot of diseases, which can bring the fatal result to everyone.
Metaparadigms refer to the person, environment, health and nursing contexts in nursing (Walker & Avant, 2011). These metaparadigms are defined by tenets which vary across different nursing theorists.
