NR501 Week 1 Discussion
Importance of Theory in Nursing (graded)
Class, you may begin posting in this TD on October 23, 2016 for credit.
The outcome for week 1 is as follows:
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)
It is essential to understand why the nursing profession has a theoretical framework. The existence of a theoretical framework is one attribute that makes nursing a
profession. Nursing theory is designed to define and construct the framework for nursing practice. Nursing theory may be used to provide structure and organization
when collecting data and explaining nursing practice (McEwen & Willis, 2014). Nursing theory is also used to advance nursing practice.
As you read through the assigned chapters, carefully examine the theory that best fits your nursing practice. When reviewing the theories that best fits your nursing
practice, consider how your personal values that you hold are reflected in the nursing theories.
Reflect on the following questions.
Why is nursing theory important to the nursing profession?
What theoretical concepts do you believe are most significant to your nursing practice?
Identify the nursing theory that has been implemented in your current clinical setting.

For many students enrolled in NR 501, this is an initial course for nursing theory. So, let’s 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.
NR501 Week 2 Discussion
Significance of Nursing Paradigms within the Profession (graded)
This week you will be discussing the Metaparadigm concepts and how each of these impacts your practice. Metaparadigms that are included for the profession of
nursing includes; health, person, environment, and nursing. The structure of the Metaparadigm provides a meaningful and logical way to clarify one’s beliefs concerning
each of the components. This allows you to see how these beliefs come together as a whole and shape your professional nursing practice. For the first question this
week, you will demonstrate an understanding of the term metaparadigm. The traditional metaparadigms are person, health, environment, and nursing, by your discussion
may expand to more non-traditional metaparadigms including: social system; role; interpersonal relations; caring; and cultural context. There are many clinical issues in
which the connection to one component will be more pronounced, but the other three will still have some role. Think of the Metaparadigm as a structure to demonstrate
the holistic nature of nursing.
As you begin, take a moment and reflect on the following course/program outcome:
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)
This lesson presents the four paradigms of the nursing profession—person, environment, health and nursing profession. Select an area of the nursing profession (i.e.
education, executive, and informatics, healthcare policy, advanced clinical practice) and apply EACH of the paradigms to the selected area. Be sure to apply EACH of the
paradigms and include an example that demonstrates the application to the practice area. Don’t forget to support your initial posting with scholarly references.

Steps of Concept Analysis (graded)
As you begin, take a moment and reflect on the following course/program outcome:
Demonstrate logical and creative thinking in the analysis and application of a theory to nursing practice. (PO #4)
In order to begin this discussion, it is important to first reflect on the steps involved in concept analysis. Wills & McEwen (2014) include a table identifying the steps of
concept analysis (derived from Walker & Avant, 2005). The steps include the following: “1) select a Concept; 2) determine the aims or purpose of the analysis; 3) identify
all the uses of the concept possible; 4) determine the defining attributes 5. Identify model case; 6) Identify borderline, related, contrary, and illegitimate cases; 7) Identify
antecedents and consequences; and 8) Define empirical referents.” (p. 58). See Box 3-1. See you in the threaded discussions.
In your response to this question, I want you refer back to the steps of concept analysis that are explored in the chapter. Identify a concept and show how you would
apply the concepts in your current practice. Take this response as far as you can go in terms of a basic concept analysis. Please make an attempt to reflect a clear and
diligent attempt of applying the steps. I look forward to seeing you in the threaded discussions.

Dr. Kari Luoma
At the end of Week 4 your concept analysis is due. This threaded 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.
NR501 Week 4 Discussion
Connection Between Theory and Advanced Clinical Practice (graded)
As you begin this week, please reflect on the following relevant course/program outcomes:
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)
As you prepare your response, there are some items for you to consider. You will select a grand nursing theory. When you do so, you need to be prepared not only to
identify a grand theory that will guide you in sharing what characteristics your selected theory has that substantiate the fact that it is a grand theory. Please provide
specific examples. Once you have accomplished this, you will then share a specific example that includes your chosen grand theory and how it can or cannot be readily
applied in clinical practice. I look forward to the threaded discussion.
Dr. Kari Luoma
Some nurses say that theory has no role in advance clinical practice. How would you use nursing theory to improve advanced clinical practice? Be sure to include an
example that demonstrates your thoughts. Don’t forget to include a scholarly reference!
NR501 Week 5 Discussion
Borrowed (non-nursing) Theories Applied to the Nursing Profession (graded)
Week 5 Threaded Discussion 2 course outcome is as follows:
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)
This week’s question focuses on the debate concerning the use of or avoidance of borrowed theories in nursing education, research, as well as other practice areas.
Thinking of theories from non-nursing disciplines may become a dynamic discussion concerning whether nursing is a unique profession and whether it demonstrates all
of the characteristics of a profession.
In the initial development and application of nursing theories, many nurses tried to apply non-nursing theories to the profession with varying degrees of success.
Especially in the areas of leadership/administration and education, non-nursing theories are frequently used. For example, adult learning theory is frequently applied to
nursing education. In this threaded discussion, select a non-nursing theory and apply it to the profession. Don’t forget to include an example of its application.
Please answer the following:
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. Don’t forget to include scholarly reference(s) to support your
information.

Below are a few examples of items you may want to discuss.
You may want to initiate the discussion by identifying a specific situation (i.e. early discharge of a patient before sufficient education about ostomy care has been
completed) and ask for interventions (based from a specific theory) that could have been beneficial in preventing the identified situation.
Expand discussion of theory and management away from institutionalized healthcare to community settings including Third World countries.
Expand discussion by applying a middle range nursing theory to this situation.
Course Outcome 2. Propose strategies for use of relevant theories that nurse leaders can employ in selected healthcare or educational organizations considering legal
and ethical principles. (PO #2, 6)
Course Outcome 3. Communicate the analysis of and proposed strategies for the use of a theory in nursing practice. (PO #3)
See you in the threaded discussions.
Please answer the following question:
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.
NR501 Week 7 Discussion
Nursing Theory Applied to Research or Education (graded)
This week, we will discuss the extent a nursing theory drive or provide a framework for your undergraduate education. We will discuss which theory was used and you
will provide a brief description of the theory and explain the effectiveness of the theory in relation to your undergraduate education. The majority of the state boards of
nursing require an organizing framework be identified for undergraduate nursing programs. Also, the national accrediting agencies of the National League for Nursing
(NLN) and American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) have noted in their accreditation standards the need for an organizing framework.
There is a complementary relationship between theory and research. Research conducted with either philosophical theory to clarify, modify, and/or extend a nursing
theory. This week, we will look at research studies that does not describe or name a theory or conceptual framework. We will discuss what consequences, if any, is there
from the absence of a guiding framework or theory?
This week’s course outcomes are directly related to this week’s discussions:
2). Propose strategies for use of relevant theories that nurse leaders can employ in selected healthcare or educational organizations considering legal and ethical
principles. (PO #2, 6)
5). Recommend strategies for the use of theory as the basis for actions of advanced nursing practice in leadership and education. (PO #5)
Please answer the following question:
The content for this week focused on applying nursing theory to research and education. Select one area (either research or education), select a nursing theory and then
apply the selected nursing theory to the area. For example, how could theory be used to select a research topic? How nursing theory would be used within the classroom
or clinical setting? Be sure to provide an example that demonstrates the application to either research or education. Don’t forget to include a scholarly reference.
NR501 Week 8 Discussion
Course Reflection and Future Application (graded)
In this last week of class, we ask you to reflect on all you have learned these past weeks. Describe how you as an advanced nurse will interpret and apply theory in your
practical environment (i.e., leadership or education) compared to when you first started this course. When did the paradigm shift in your thinking occur? Describe your
shift in thinking with details and examples.
Describe your relevant actions, thoughts, and feelings, as well as the situation’s specific circumstances and features. Relate how you did or would – in a similar situation
in the future – apply what you have learned in this course. We can meet the course objectives by reflecting on the theories that nurse leaders can employ in your own
work environment.
This week, we will discuss all you have learned in these past weeks. Relate how you did or would – in a similar situation in the future – apply what you have learned in

The course outcomes for this week are directly related to this week’s discussions:
2) Propose strategies for use of relevant theories that nurse leaders can employ in selected healthcare or educational organizations, considering legal and ethical
principles. (PO #2, 6)
Throughout the discussions occurring within NR 501, 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, let’s 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 he
