The development of theory in nursing is an important aspect of the discipline as it helps to provide a framework for nursing practice, research, and education. Nursing theory is a set of concepts, definitions, relationships, and assumptions or propositions that are derived from nursing models or from other disciplines and applied to nursing. The purpose of nursing theory is to describe, explain, and predict the phenomena of nursing.
There are many different nursing theories that have been developed over the years, and each one offers a unique perspective on the practice of nursing. Some nursing theories focus on specific aspects of nursing practice, such as nursing assessment, nursing intervention, or nursing education. Others focus on broader concepts, such as the nature of nursing, the role of the nurse, or the relationship between the nurse and the patient.
The development of nursing theory is an ongoing process, and new theories are constantly being developed and tested to improve nursing practice. The use of nursing theory in practice can help to guide decision-making, improve patient outcomes, and enhance the professional development of nurses. It is important for nurses to be familiar with various nursing theories and to understand how they can be applied in practice.
The paper should 100% follow the rubric because the professor is a hard grader. you should use the latest APA style. The citations should be in text and in reference page, and they should not be old than 10 years. Moreover, the references should be able to direct the professor to the paper used. You can only use scholarly articles and nursing journals. The paper is about making an approach of the the phenomena I described in the previous paper and choose 1 or more of the theory perspectives that I use in order to prevent the phenomena in order to draw my own nursing theory . Must provide a brief rational for the choice of theory. I have to create a visual concept mapping to describe my theory. I have to use my theory as a guide to develop 3 testable research questions and 3 corresponding hypotheses. I will upload previous paper in additional files GUIDELINE FOR THE THEORY DEVELOPMENT PAPER Purpose: The intent of this assignment is to help students to evaluate theory development in nursing. Guidelines: Each student will develop a theoretical model that can be used to guide research on your topic from your Review of Theoretical Perspectives paper. 1. From the major theoretical approaches that you described above, choose one theoretical orientation, or theory, that you would like to apply to your study. You may use an existing middle-range theory, you may derive a theory from a grand theory, or you may synthesize one or more theories to create a new middle-range theory. Provide a brief rationale for your choice of theory. 2. Describe the parent theory. Identify the key constructs and relational statements. Include a diagram of the parent theory. 3. Describe your proposed theoretical model. a. Identify and explain the key concepts in your model and provide conceptual definitions. b. Identify and explain the relationships between your concepts. 4. Include a visual model (diagram) of your theory. 5. Using your theory as a guide, develop three testable research questions and three corresponding hypotheses. 6. Write clearly and succinctly. Present your ideas logically. Use transitions. Include an introduction and summary. Adhere to APA style (6th edition), cover sheet, headers, pagination, references, etc. Use APA format and label each section using the evaluation outline below. Use headings below to identify sections of your paper. The rubric below will be used to evaluate your paper. Length should be approximately 6 pages, excluding references. Any papers submitted longer than 6 pages (excluding references and cover sheet) will not be read. The rubric below will be used to evaluate your paper.
