Hallmark Features:

 

An emphasis on the use of nursing theory in clinical practice.

  • Applies theoretical content to every day practice making the text more interactive and practical for students.

Chapter on interdisciplinary practice.

  • Introduces interdisciplinary (collaborative practice) models. Broadens the coverage of notable nursing theorists.
  • Demonstrates to students how nursing theory is related to widely used collaborative practice models.

Published examples of theory strategies.

  • Real examples help students visualize how theoretical strategies are developed and implemented.

Strengths and weaknesses are identified for each model/theory.

  • Teaches students how to critically analyze nursing theories.

The application of abstract models and theories to nursing practice situations.

  • Clarifies complex content that is often difficult to conceptualize.

International contingent of theorists.

  • Reflects the diverse global aspects of nursing practice.

New to this Edition

Includes information on twenty-nine theories. 

  • Works included in this text were chosen with the assistance nursing faculty who responded to a survey conducted by Pearson Health Science. 
  • This resulted in the incorporation of nine theories not previously included: those of Joyce Travelbee, Kathy Barnard, Nola Pender, Patricia Benner, Ramona Mercer, Merle H. Mishel, Juliet Corbin and Anselm Strauss, Kathy Kolcaba, and Afaf Meleis.

Reorganized with full and summary chapters.

  • Full chapters continue to offer a biography of the theorist(s), a summary of the theory, discussion of the theory and four concepts of nursing metaparadigm, application of the theory to nursing practice (previously primarily within the nursing process, but in this edition expanded to application as appropriate to the theory), and a critique and discussion of the strengths and limitations of the theory and thought-provoking questions about the theory.
  • Each summary chapter includes more than one theory with a brief biography of each theorist, an overview of each theory, and highlights of research and practice-based publications about each theory.
  • Both types of chapters have references. Where there is a significant body of literature-whether research, practice, or theoretical in nature-about the work discussed in the chapter, an annotated bibliography of selected publications is provided.
