Abstract

Healing and transcendence are concepts of considerable interest to nurses who engage in holistic nursing practice. The two concepts are often used within the context of adaptation to describe the processes experienced by individuals who experience suffering and distress from various life events. Despite their intuitive significance to the human experience, the similarities and differences between the two concepts remains unclear. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a Roy adaptation model-guided comparison of the two concepts that addresses their shared and distinct characteristics.
