Why should the nursing profession care about this issue or concern? What does the nursing literature have to say about this issue or concern including its frequency of occurrence?

Week 1 discussion
Importance of Theory
in Nursing
For many students enrolled in NR501, this is an initial
course for nursing theory. So, lets
have a debate!!! Is nursing theory
important to the nursing profession? If
you believe that it is important, explain why it is useful. If you do not believe that it is useful,
explain why nursing theory is not necessary to the profession? Be sure to provide an example that
demonstrates your opinion and a scholarly reference (not using the required
textbook or lesson) which supports your opinion.

Week 2 discussion
Significance of
Nursing Concepts within the Profession
This discussion considers the metaparadigm of nursing and
the four concepts of the nursing professionperson, environment, health and
nursing profession. Select a practice
area of the nursing profession (i.e. education, executive, informatics,
healthcare policy, and advanced clinical practice) and apply EACH of the four
concepts to the selected area. Be sure
to apply EACH of the four concepts and include an example that demonstrates the
application to the practice area. Dont
forget to support your initial posting with scholarly references.

Week 3 discussion
Steps of Concept
Analysis
At the end of Week 4 your concept analysis is due. This discussion provides an opportunity to
start this assignment.
Select a nursing concept (be sure to use a nursing theory)
and then provide a response to each one of the steps included in a concept
analysis regarding your selected concept.
This information does not have to be comprehensive but provides a
foundation to the upcoming assignment.
Be sure to include a scholarly reference.

Week 4 discussion
Connection Between
Theory and Advanced Clinical Practice
While the focus of this course is nursing theory, some
nurses say that theory has no role in clinical practice. What are your thoughts? Does nursing theory
have a role in clinical practice? How would you use nursing theory to improve
or evaluate the quality of clinical practice?
Be sure to include an example that demonstrates your thoughts. Dont forget to include a scholarly
reference!

Week 5 discussion
Borrowed
(non-nursing) Theories Applied to the Nursing Profession
While the focus of this course is nursing theory, frequently
the use of non-nursing or borrowed theories occurs. Select a nursing practice area (i.e.
education, executive, advance clinical practice, informatics, and health care
policy); then identify a non-nursing (borrowed) theory; and apply it to the
area you have selected. Be sure to
provide an example of how the non-nursing theory can be used to enhance the
selected practice area. Dont forget to
include scholarly reference(s) to support your information.

Week 6 discussion
Impact of Nursing
Theory Upon Healthcare Organization
Discuss how a specific middle-range nursing theory has been
or could be applied by nurse leaders or nurse managers to effectively deal with
an administrative issue (i.e., staffing, use of supplies, staff performance
issues). Include an example from the literature or your own experience to
illustrate your points.

Week 7 discussion
Nursing Theory
Applied to Research
In NR 500, you developed a PICOT question. Select a nursing theory that you find useful
in nursing practice. Discuss each of the
following selected elements of the PICOT format by applying your selected
nursing theory to the element. Be sure
to include a scholarly reference.
Population/ Patient Problem:
Consider how your selected nursing theory may guide you in selecting the
population and/or patient problem
Intervention: Does
your selected nursing theory identify a possible intervention? If not, how is your selected intervention
consist with your selected nursing theory?
Outcome: How would
the outcome of your PICOT study contribute to your selected nursing
theory? Would it add new information? Would it confirm some part of the
theory?

Week 8 discussion
Course Reflection and
Future Application
Throughout the discussions occurring within NR501, a common
element has been application of theory.
In this our last discussion regarding theory, it is time to focus on you
and your capstone experience (yes, it is never too early consider this major
project!). While it is too early to
identify your project, lets consider on your future practice area as this is
the setting your project will occur in.
Based upon your self-reflection and use of nursing theory
within the discussions and assignments, select ONE nursing theory that you prefer
and answer the following questions:
1. Why do you prefer the nursing theory you selected?
2. How can this theory be used in your current practice area
(education, executive, advanced clinical practice, informatics, or healthcare
policy)?
3. How can this theory be used in your future practice area
(education, executive advanced clinical practice, informatics or healthcare
policy)?
