Summary

This text is the most contemporary and comprehensive Nursing Theory textbook on the market today. Written in an easily understood style, it reflects current content course needs by addressing the underlying information needed to understand and apply theory to practice. One of the most popular aspects of this text is how it presents shared theories from other disciplines--such as the sociological, behavioral, and biomedical sciences--and relates them to nursing practice, research, education, and administration.
