This text continues to provide the most comprehensive look at nursing theory with the work of 39 theorists discussed. . A Major Concepts & Definitions box is included in each theorist chapter, outlining and summarizing the theory's most significant ideas and clarifying content-specific vocabulary. . Each theorist chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography outlining numerous primary and secondary sources of information ideal for research projects. . Critical Thinking Activities at the end of each theorist chapter ask students to process the theory presented and to apply it to personal and hypothetical practice situations. .
