The Nursing Practice has evolved significantly over the years. I remember learning about Florence Nightingale during my first semester of nursing school. I thought it was amazing that a woman in the late 1830’s was called, by God, into service and had the ability to make such a huge impact on the profession and nursing as we know it to this day. According to Dynamics in Nursing, “at the time, British hospitals for soldiers did not employ female nurses, she was assigned to be the chief nurse of the hospital in Turkey” (Whitney, S.). Something as simple as handwashing and keeping sanitary conditions, hugely impacted care and outcomes of soldiers. Technology has impacted nursing. Paper charts made it very difficult for healthcare teams to get on the same level because only one person could view the chart at a time. It would take longer for doctors to see labs. Medications that were not compatible were not easily flagged on a computer screen. IV poles could not monitor the flow of medication administration. Medicine will continue to evolve and in 10 years from now we will have unimaginable advances in healthcare.

 In the article, “Using a conceptual model in nursing research-mitigating fatigue in cancer patients” it talks about how these two terms may be used interchangeably, however, a nursing theory will use part of a specific theory to use as the basis of the study. It includes statements where recommendations are made and it shows how the theory is proved or relevant, more so than a conceptual model would. A conceptual model would be considered more so of the organization for the framework of the actual research.  

The nursing theory I would like to summarize is the Self-care theory by Dorothea E. Orem. This theory speaks of helping a patient preserve their autonomy when this becomes difficult after having a sickness or being affected by other life changing events. This is meant to help a patient continue having a good quality of life, stability and function on their own. I believe a good example would be with a patient that lost a limb. This patient would most likely want to initially depend on others to help with tasks because they are either scared or simply unfamiliar with what it would entail to live with, say, just one arm. Providing assistance and teaching these patients how to do these tasks one handed, how to get dressed, do self-care such as brushing their teeth or taking a shower, little things that will help them commence their independence are all effective.

Assessment Description

This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.

This assignment is to be completed in a group, which will be assigned by your instructor. The presentation will be submitted and graded as a group assignment.

Nursing theories are tested and systematic ways to implement nursing practice. Select a nursing theory and its conceptual model. Prepare a 10‐15 slide PowerPoint in which you describe the nursing theory and its conceptual model and demonstrate its application in nursing practice. Include the following:

  1. Present an overview of the nursing theory. Provide evidence that demonstrates support for the model’s efficacy in nursing practice. Explain how the theory proves the conceptual model.
  2. Explain how the nursing theory incorporates the four metaparadigm concepts.
  3. Provide three evidence‐based examples that demonstrate how the nursing theory supports nursing practice. Provide support and rationale for each.

You are required to cite a minimum of three sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be appropriate for the assignment and relevant to nursing practice.
