Week 7: Nursing Theory Applied to Evidence Based Practice
This week we are focusing on the application of nursing theories to evidence-based practice. In NR 500, you explored an area of interest related to your selected specialty track. You then identified an issue/concern related to that area of interest. For this discussion: select a nursing theory or model that can be used as a framework to support the resolution of your identified issue/concern.
In your initial response, address the following:
· How the selected nursing theory or model is relevant to your specialty track
· A brief description of the issue/concern
· How the selected nursing theory or model can be used to guide the resolution of the issue/concern
Include an example from the literature or your own experience to illustrate your points. Remember to include at least one outside scholarly source.
