This is a final project for a theory class. Please follow the directions explicitly. Follow the grading criteria and make sure that all aspects of this project are done completely.

This project is huge and a vital part of my final grade. All references need to be peer reviewed journal articles of less than 5 years old unless referencing the actual theory documented by the original writer.

The theory MUST be made relevant to an emergency room nurse.

The project: Assignment 2: Nursing Theory Analysis Paper

Overview/Description: The purpose of this assignment is to describe, evaluate and discuss application of a nursing grand or mid-range theory. This assignment also provides the learner an opportunity to connect theory and research to nursing phenomena. Learners will develop an minimum 8 page paper (excluding the title page and references) using APA style to address the elements listed below.

Theory/Author Name and Background:
1. Select a Grand or Mid-Range Theory that is appropriate to your practice setting (emergency room nursing).
2. Describe the theorist’s background in detail and discuss how their experiences have impacted the theory development.
3. Examine crucial references for the original and/or current work of the theorist and other authors writing about the selected theory.
4. Identify the phenomenon of concern or problems addressed by the theory.

Theory Description:
1. Explain whether the theory uses deductive, inductive or retroductive reasoning. Provide evidence to support your conclusion.
2. Describe the major concepts of the theory. How are they defined? (theoretically and/or operationally) Is the author consistent in the use of the concepts and other terms in the theory?
3. Interpret how the concepts are defined. Implicitly or explicitly?
4. Examine the relationships (propositions) among the major concepts.

Evaluation:
1. Identify explicit and implicit assumptions (values/beliefs) underlying the theory. On what assumptions does the theory build?
2. Examine the theories description of the four metaparadigm concepts of nursing. How are they explained in the theory?
3. Discuss the clarity of the theory. Did it have lucidness and consistency?

Application:
1. Examine how the theory would guide nursing actions.
2. Describe specifically how you can use this theory in your area of nursing (Practice, Education, Informatics or Administration).

APA Style/Format:
1. Free of grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors.
2. Citations and references are written in correct APA Style with references being less than 5 years old unless citing original theory by original author.
