The context of a university hospital and international trends in the development of a professional nursing discipline require theoretical guidance for the ongoing improvement of the practice of nursing. The decision to apply Roy's conceptual model of adaptation clarifies the need for a complementary nursing practice model that brings this macro theory closer to the assistance reality. It is also necessary to make the vocation of service, knowledge and leadership of nursing visible whenever the human adaptive process is a priority.CONCLUSION

It represents a consensus on the essentials of the nursing practice, which seek to support the adaptive process in order to have more comprehensive welfare and consequent improvement of the patient.
