Designated a Doody's Core Title!


Middle Range Theory for Nursing is a textbook designed for theory and research courses in master's and doctoral programs. As described in the 2d edition of the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research, middle range theory "is a basic, usable structure of ideas, less abstract than grand theory and more abstract than empirical generalizations or micro-range theoryÖ. Middle-range theories are developed and grown at the intersection of practice and research to provide guidance for everyday practice and scholarly research rooted in the discipline of nursing."

In this revised and updated second edition, the authors will revise the eight theories that were examined in the first edition with published research and practice updates along with any changes in the basic concepts and models. Seven new theories will be added. Each theory is presented by the theorist in a consistent format: purpose of the theory; basic concepts; relationships among the concepts, the model; use of the theory in nursing research and/or practice; conclusions; references.



    Theories new to the second edition

  • Symptom Management (Dodd et al.)
  • Caring (Swanson)
  • Embodied Language (Liehr et al.)
  • Cultural Self-reliance (Lowe)
  • Caregiver Stress (Tsai)
