ANALYZE THEORIES FROM NURSING AND RELEVANT FIELDS WITH RESPECT TO THEIR COMPONENTS

Viewpoints on Theory

What relationship(s) do you find between middle-range nursing theories and evidence-based practice? Provide one example that uses a specific middle-range theory to support your views.

 

In this thread we will cover the relationship between middle-range theory and evidence-based practice. Middle-range theories are less abstract or more focused in their scope than grand range theories. They provide the nurse with a limited view of nursing compared to the grand theories. Many middle-range theories can be applied directly to practice.

In this thread you will respond to and discuss: What relationship(s) do you find between middle-range nursing theories and evidence-based practice? Provide one example that uses a specific middle-range theory to support your views.

The course outcomes that will be used to guide the learning process are:

• Analyze theories from nursing and relevant fields with respect to their components, relationships among the components, logic if the propositions, comprehensiveness, and utility to advanced nursing. (PO #1)

• Examine instances where theory is used to guide the development of new knowledge and implementation of evidence-based practice. (PO #6)
