Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

The most comprehensive of its kind, this classic resource in the field of nursing theory provides an in-depth look at 49 theorists of historical, international, and significant importance. Each chapter features a clear, consistent presentation of a key nursing philosophy or theory. Case studies and critical thinking activities help bridge the gap between theory and application.


    • A case study at the end of each theorist chapter puts the theory into a larger perspective, helping you understand how the information can be applied to practice.

    • A Major Concepts & Definitions box in each theorist chapter outlines and summarizes the theory's most significant ideas and clarifies content-specific vocabulary.

    • Each theorist chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography outlining numerous primary and secondary sources of information ideal for research projects.

    • Critical Thinking Activities at the end of each theorist chapter challenge you to process the theory presented and apply it to personal and hypothetical practice situations.

    • Introductory chapters provide you with a strong foundation in the history and philosophy of science, logical reasoning, and the theory development process.

    • Diagrams for theories help you visualize and better understand inherently abstract concepts.

    • Each theorist chapter is written by a scholar specializing in that particular theorist's work - often an individual who has worked closely with the theorist.

    • Most chapters have been reviewed and edited by the theorist for currency and accuracy, further validating the accounts set forth in the text.

    • Theorist birth (and if applicable, death) dates help you place each individual into a time context.

      • A new chapter introduces the theorist Afaf Meleis and covers her Transition Theory that has helped shape the theoretical development of nursing.

      • Points for further study at the end of each chapter direct you to assets available for additional information.

      • Need to know information is highlighted in at-a-glance summary boxes throughout to help you quickly review key concepts.

      • Personal quotes from the theorists help you gain insight and make each complex theory more memorable.

      • Updated references include only published works to ensure accuracy and credibility.

      Review:
      This text is now in its 7th edition and referred to as a classic comprehensive nursing theory text. This text introduces the reader to nursing theory and presents the essential nature of theory to nursing knowledge. It is important to remember that professional nursing is patient focused and the professional nurse is able to articulate and describe the theoretical perspective of her or his practice. That is, professional nurses are able to say: this is who I am, this is what I do, and this is how I do it.
