Nursing Theory : Utilization and Application - 2nd edition

Nursing Theory : Utilization and Application (ISBN10: 0323011942; ISBN13: 9780323011945)
ISBN13: 978-0323011945
ISBN10: 0323011942

Summary: The purpose of Nursing Theory: Utilization and Application 2/e is to demonstrate theory based nursing practice, showing how nursing theory guides critical thinking for decision making in professional nursing practice. The text is presented in three parts:

Part One has four chapters, and covers such content areas as the history of professional nursing; areas of theory-based practice reported in tables and referenced in the nursing literature; three nurs
ing philosophies, seven nursing models, and six theories presented in the context of the structure of nursing knowledge; and the ethical obligations of nursing and the moral imperatives in nursing philosophies, models and theories. Part Two has been expanded to include applications of theory-guided nursing practice written by clinical experts in three sections: philosophies of nursing, nursing models, and middle-range theories of nursing. Part Three contains two chapters that speak to expansion in two different ways. One chapter highlights nursing practice areas for expansion of theory-based practice, and the final chapter of the text issues a challenge based on nursing values and the
essential nature of theory-based nursing.


Features
  • Presents an application focus as the central concept of this text, whereby the authors describe each particular theory and then apply it to real situations encountered by nurses today
  • Designed to be used as a companion text to the Marriner Tomey/Alligood: Nursing Theorists and Their Work , presenting the application aspect of the core theory knowledge presented in the Marriner Tomey text
  • Case history focus presents the same case study (Debbie) in most chapters, and applies each particular theory to this same patient, allowing comparison of the various nursing care approaches presented in the text
  • Incorporates the critical thinking process in all of the Application chapters through the use of case studies, critical thinking tables, and the end-of-chapter exercises, fostering student's personal application of the theories presented
  • Presents a consistent chapter format throughout most of the text, providing a comprehensive base of theory knowledge to promote student learning
  • Links philosophies, models, and theories to provide sound knowledge for practice and explain the evolution of nursing theory

What's New
  • A New ethics chapter in Part I titled Philosophies, Models, and Theories: Moral Obligations will discuss how moral imperatives for patient care emerged and how the imperatives are used within the philosophies, models, and theories presented in the text.
  • The addition of three nursing philosophies in Part II, Nightingale, Watson, and Benner , provides students with an historical perspective of earlier works that have preceded theories which guide practice. This content will also tie in with the same philosophies in the Marriner Tomey/Alligood text, Nursing Theorists and Their Work, 5e.
  • The addition of six theories in Part II, Orlando, Modeling and Role-Modeling, Mercer, Leininger, Parse, and Newman , can be used in application to nursing practice. These theories will tie in with the same theories included in the Marriner Tomey/Alligood, Nursing Theorists and Their Work, 5e.
