# Applying Theory to a Practice

Details:

Refer to “Identify Practice Problem Grading Criteria.”

Write a paper of 2,000?2,500 words. You will develop the paper in three parts.

In Part 1, you will identify a practice problem from a review of the literature, then write an introduction to the paper.

The introduction should state the purpose of paper, which includes applying theory to practice situations, identifying the practice problem and stating the rationale for the selection—i.e. why is this an important problem, as well as defining the practice problem and supporting it with the literature review.

Applying Theory to a Practice Problem: Part 2: Application of Middle-Range Theory to Problem

Due Date: Jan 07, 2015 23:59:59

Details:

In Part 2, you will apply a middle-range theory to the problem described in the introduction.

Describe the theory, starting with a short bio of the theorist along with the major influences that the theorist has contributed.

Describe the concepts and propositions of the theory. Provide an example from the literature as to how the theory has been applied.

Apply the theory to your practice problem, demonstrating the links to the elements of the problem and theory. In addition, make sure to describe how practice would change by incorporating the theory. It should be clear to reader that this is an appropriate theory for the problem.

Benchmark Assignment: Applying Theory to a Practice Problem: Part 3: Application of Borrowed Theory to Problem and Conclusion

Due Date: Jan 21, 2015 23:59:59 Max Points: 150

Details:

Revise Parts 1 and 2 of your paper, based on the feedback provided by the “Identify Practice Problem Grading Rubric” and “Apply Middle-Range Nursing Theory Grading Criteria.”

In Part 3, you will apply a borrowed theory to the problem described in the introduction.

Describe the theory, starting with a short bio of the theorist along with the major influences that the theorist has contributed.

Describe the concepts and propositions of the theory. Provide an example from the literature as to how the theory has been applied.

Apply the theory to your practice problem, demonstrating the links to the elements of the problem and theory. In addition, make sure to describe how practice would change by incorporating the theory. It should be clear to the reader that this is an appropriate theory for the problem.

Write a conclusion. The conclusion should summarize key points of the paper. Identify the usefulness of applying theory to practice, including both nursing and borrowed theory, and identify problems with the application of the two theories presented in Parts 2 and 3.
