Author Biography

Marilyn E. Parker and Marlaine C. Smith introduce you to the theories and theorists who laid the foundations for contemporary nursing practice. Step by step, they show you how to study, analyze, and evaluate a theory and then apply it in practice. From Florence Nightingale's belief in the natural or inherent healing ability of human beings to Kathryn Kolcaba's theory of comfort, you'll explore the past, present, and future of nursing.
