Overview

Continuing development and testing of propositions and formulations from nursing theory are critical for the continued evolution of nursing science. In this text, the editors and contributors highlight significant work in middle range theory development using King's Conceptual System and Theory of Goal Attainment.

Explored in the three sections of this volume are:

  • An overview of the foundations on which middle range theories are built from within King's Conceptual System, including a chapter by Dr. King
  • Presentation of a variety of middle range theories applied to individuals, groups and families, and organizations--from children to the elderly
  • Examination of post-middle range theory development and challenges for further nursing research and education

Each chapter has a consistent format and includes a wide-range of perspectives and geographical locations, allowing readers to compare knowledge-building efforts across international lines.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book presents the "state of the science" based on King's work, providing an overview of how select middle range theories applied to individuals, groups and families, and organizations are built on King's work. Chapters represent a wide range of perspectives and geographic locations.
Purpose: The purpose is to highlight significant work that extends King's conceptual system and her theory of goal attainment. It focuses mainly on middle range theories, but other seminal works are included.
Audience: The audience includes students at the master's and doctoral level as well as practicing nurses who want to test or develop theory in their practice.
Features: The 18 chapters are divided into three parts. Part I discusses the foundations of King's work and how theories build on that work; part II presents several middle range theories derived from King's work; and part III looks at post-middle range theory development.
Assessment: This book looks at theory development in a unique way. Any scholar who has used or has been interested in King's Theory of Goal Attainment would benefit from reading how numerous middle-range theories were based on King's conceptual system. It provides a fresh look at the development and testing of nursing knowledge and includes new middle-range theories from refereed publications as well as master's theses and doctoral dissertations. It is a very interesting but rigorous read.
