A model is a summarized representation of facts. Health-related models show values, perceptions and various understandings of health care. This study investigated the nursing advocacy models and the nurses’ protective role. In this review article, related literature and documents were searched in PubMed, Science Direct, Proquest, Google Scholar, Magiran, Iran Medex, and Scientific Information Database, using the general search engine Google. The search was performed by keywords “advocacy” and “nursing advocacy model”. In this stage, 89 sources including books, articles and dissertations on the subject of nursing advocacy written between 1991 and 2014 were collected. In the next stage, 43 sources were chosen for the review article. Finally, 8 models that were more consistent with the topic and objectives of the study were extracted. Considering the findings of this study and the benefits of nursing advocacy, we propose to design a model in order to promote the advocacy role of nurses in Iran. In this model, legal constraints, social factors and values, organizational culture, position of the nurse in the health care system and political‌ and economic considerations should be taken into account.
