    We are pleased to announce another 4-star review from Doody’s Review Service!

    Nursing Theories: A Framework for Professional Practice
    Kathleen Masters, RN, DNS, University of Southern Mississippi, College of Nursing, Mississippi

    ISBN-13: 9781449626013  |  Product With Access Code  |  480 pages  |    © 2012

    The review, written by Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN of University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, states: This book is written at a level to which undergraduate students and practicing nurses with little background in theory can easily relate. As each theorist is discussed, the author takes the reader through the nursing process which shows how that theory, conceptual model, or philosophy can be used in practice. It is a very practical way to bring theory and practice together, making this book unique.

    Nursing Theories: A Framework for Professional Practice examines the work of select nurse theorists and popular nursing theories, teaching students both to understand and apply theories in nursing practice. Broken into five comprehensive sections, the text opens with a general overview of nursing theory and application before providing a more in-depth analysis of the major and middle range theories of nursing.

    Examples from the literature and case studies illustrate how to apply theory to practice, including:

    • Environmental Model
    • Theory of Transpersonal Caring
    • Behavioral System Model
    • Roy Adaptation Model
    • Theory of Interpersonal Relations
    • Theory of Human Becoming
    • Nursing Process Theory
    • Self-Transcendence Theory

    Fully Integrated with Dynamic Technology Solutions!
