NUR 502 Grand Canyon Week 4 Discussion 2

Select one of the grand or middle-range nursing theories. How does the theory demonstrate evidence of the utilization of social, behavioral, or bioscience theories?

 

 

NUR 502 Grand Canyon Week 5 Discussion 1

All nursing theories are developed in space and time, and are not value free. Select one nursing theorist and explain the factors that influenced development of the theory (history, scientific paradigm, and personal experiences–mentoring, education, practice, other). Provide reference(s) for your response.

 

NUR 502 Grand Canyon Week 5 Discussion 2

NUR 502 Grand Canyon Week 6 Discussion 2

Choose one of the middle-range theories. What impact would this theory most likely have on your individual practice? Give specific examples.

 

 

NUR 502 Grand Canyon Week 7 Discussion 1

The influence of consequential ethics as an ethical framework (the greatest good for the greatest number) opposes the ethical principle of deontology (i.e., the rightness of an act itself determines what is right). Both of these impact the nursing profession. Modern social exchange theories are based on the principle of utility. Read the assumptions of social exchange theory and consider how these would affect the nurse-patient relationship, compared to how these impact the nurse within the health care environment. To what extent are all theories ethical? Is social exchange theory compatible with the values of the nursing profession?
