Revised and updated for its Sixth Edition, Theoretical Nursing provides a comprehensive developmental and historical review of nursing theory. This text offers a contemporary analysis of the evolution of nursing and represents the degree to which many scholars view the focus and mission of nursing as a discipline through the development of its theoretical base. Chapters provide readers with different frameworks that shape the nature, the scope, and the mission of nursing care. The book presents practical perspectives that help the scholar to develop analytic skills and integrate knowledge into a coherent whole. This edition of the text incorporates the ‘journey’ of nursing theory and how practicing nurses use it to improve their practice. Currency updates and content reorganization are also implemented in this edition to allow for ease of access to content. In addition, journal articles and case studies are available on thePoint to allow students to apply content and apply it to a practice setting.
