Connection Between Theory and Practice
Our Course Objectives (CO) for this week and corresponding MSN Program Objective (PO) are:
Analyze theories from nursing and relevant fields with respect to their components, relationships among the components, logic of 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).
Grand theories are more abstract or general in nature and middle-range theories that are more specific in nature. What relationship(s) do you find between grand nursing theories and clinical practice? Provide one example that uses a specific grand theory to support your views.
I look forward to reading your examples!
For this week’s discussion, please answer this question:
