Summary

This ideal introduction to theory explains what theory is, how theory is used in professional nursing and encourages students to develop reasoning skills and incorporate abstract ideas into practice. The Second Edition introduces more research concepts throughout and an increased international perspective of nursing theory. Case studies are incorporated to demonstrate how theory relates to the practice of nursing and how theory and reasoning are interrelated.
