Theoretical content can be difficult to understand. Our recently published Nursing Theories: A Framework for Professional Practice, Second Edition by Kathleen Masters approaches theory in language that's familiar to students and practicing nurses while focusing on how to apply nursing practice in the context of the nursing process.
Completely updated and revised, it includes a new chapter that explains many of the non-nursing theories that have been foundational in the development of nursing theory.
What else makes this text special?
- Illustrations in each chapter demonstrate how theory relates to the nursing process
- Includes three additional theories: Transitions Theory (Meleis), Uncertainty in Illness (Mischel), and Postpartum Depression Theory (Beck)
- Examples of each theory in research or practice from current literature
