Provide an overview of each nurse theorist/and or nursing theory that you have chosen.
Be sure to discuss the basic philosophical and structural components of the theory, the classification of the theory, the purpose and intention of the theory, and whether the theory is based upon other theories or approaches (from other nursing scholars or from other disciplines). Identify what areas of nursing the theory has the most impact, nursing practice, nursing research, nursing education, or nursing administration. Also discuss the development of the theory/theoretical approach based upon the sociopolitical and cultural influences of the time and environment of its development, upon the roles in nursing that the theorist held, and the values and beliefs of the theorist.
Be sure to use appropriate APA citation and when responding to your peers, begin with addressing them personally and end your response posting with your name.
Guidelines for Weekly Discussion Postings/ Discussion Participation: The online discussions will provide opportunities to explore different topics, share what you are learning with your classmates, and gain clarity about the course content. Your discussion responses should demonstrate critical thinking skills and your responses should be thoughtful and promote respectful discourse with the other students in the class. The rules of common courtesy are to be followed (e.g., one voice speaks at a time, polite debate occurs, and all opinions are honored). In order for an online discussion assignment to be considered complete, the student must effectively and adequately cover the assigned topic, reference the course text and other sources with appropriate APA citations, meet the 400 word minimum, the responses to classmates must be developed in a manner that furthers the conversation and learning, the spelling, grammar, and writing must be appropriate, and the online discussion assignment must be submitted on time. Interactions should be thorough, thoughtful and facilitate the learning community’s growth. Discussions will be reviewed on a weekly basis. Contribution toward the course grade total will be based on the pattern of demonstrating these characteristics. Please remember, initial posts should be submitted by deadline.
