Graduate nursing students and advanced practice nurses need a broad foundation in order to understand and apply theory in practice. The recently published Philosophies and Theories for Advanced Nursing Practice, Third Edition by Janie B. Butts and Karen L. Rich gives students a thorough understanding of theory structure, how to evaluate theories, and how to put theories into practice on the job. Appropriate for both introductory and advanced degrees of knowledge, it also covers a wide variety of interdisciplinary theories due to the growing emphasis on collaborative, interdisciplinary care.
New to the Third Edition:
