Summary

Nursing theory is a major part of all nursing courses and nurses are encouraged to use theories in practice, but it is not always easy for the student to make a real connection between the two. Drawing on many years' experience of teaching and research, Hugh McKenna addresses the theory needs of both students and qualified staff. He demystifies the confusing terminology associated with nursing theory and shows how all nurses can build theory from practice through reflection and analysis.Nursing Theories and Modelsoffers step-by-step guidelines on how to analyze concepts, how to generate and select theory and how to apply and test theory in practice. It puts forward realistic strategies for bridging the theory-practice gap.
