Overview

A classic in the field of nursing theory! This renowned textbook guides the reader through in-depth descriptions and analyses of 31 specific nursing theories - many reviewed and validated by the theorists themselves - in a logical, consistent chapter organization that makes information easy to follow. Its comprehensive and thorough approach, objective critiques, and clear writing style make it ideal for the study of theory at all levels of nursing. Twelve new chapters and updated material throughout this edition provide a wealth of information on the most current and cutting-edge ideas in nursing theory today.
  • Each theorist chapter presents that individual's work in a logical, consistent framework, making the information easy to follow.
  • A Major Concepts & Definitions box in each theorist chapter outlines and summarizes the theory's most significant ideas, while also clarifying content-specific vocabulary.
  • Each theorist chapter is written by one or more scholars specializing in that particular theorist's work, often individuals who have worked closely with the theorist.
  • Whenever possible, chapters have been reviewed and edited by the theorists themselves for currency and accuracy.
  • An extensive bibliography at the end of each theorist chapter outlines numerous primary and secondary sources of information for further research.
  • Critical Thinking Activities at the end of each theorist chapter challenge students to apply the theory to personal and hypothetical practice situations.
  • Beginning chapters on the history and philosophy of science, logical reasoning, and theory development process present a strong foundation for the study of nursing theory.
  • A new Nursing Model chapter has been added on Anne Boykin and Savina O. Schoenhofer: Nursing as Caring: A Model for Transforming Practice.
  • A new Nursing Theory chapter covers Gladys L. Husted and James H. Husted: Symphonological Bioethical Theory.
  • Three new Nursing Philosophies are included: Katie Eriksson: Theory of Caritative Caring; Kari Martinsen: Philosophy of Caring; and Marilyn Anne Ray: Theory of Bureaucratic Caring.
  • Seven new chapters on Middle Range Nursing Theories cover: Phil Barker: The Tidal Model of Mental Health Recovery; Cheryl Tatano Beck: Postpartum Depression Theory; Georgene Gaskill Eakes, Mary Lermann Burke, and Margaret A. Hainsworth: Theory of Chronic Sorrow; Pamela G. Reed: Self-Transcendence Theory; Cornelia M. Ruland and Shirley M. Moore: Peaceful End of Life Theory; Kristen M. Swanson: Theory of Caring; and Carolyn L. Wiener and Marylin J. Dodd: Theory of Illness Trajectory.
  • Each theorist chapter contains a brief summary that condenses the comprehensive discussion of the theorist's work.
  • A case study at the end of each theorist chapter puts the theory into a larger perspective, demonstrating a way in which the information can be applied to practice.
  • Eleven theorists have been combined into a single new chapter - Nursing Theorists of Historical Significance - that better reflects the ways in which the individuals' ideas are used today.
  • A number of chapters, including several of the new chapters, feature international theorists and/or international chapter authors to provide a more diverse, global perspective of nursing.
  • Dates of the theorists' birth (and death, if applicable) have been added to the chapter openers to provide a historical context for their work.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: "This is a thorough and comprehensive analysis of 31 nursing theories and the work of 39 nursing theorists. "
Purpose: "According to the editors, it "is a tribute to nursing theorists." "
Audience: Nursing students at all levels would be able to glean knowledge from this book. The editors state that baccalaureate students "may be most interested in the concepts, definitions, and theoretical assertions." Graduate students would be interested in the "acceptance by the nursing community, the theoretical sources for theory development, and the use of empirical data." Master's and doctoral students would also benefit from the extensive bibliographies.
Features: Introductory chapters begin with the history and philosophy of science, logical reasoning, and the theory development process, as well as the discussion of nine nursing theorists of historical significance. In the rest of the book, the theorists are separated into four sections: philosophies, nursing models, nursing theories, and middle-range theories. Each of these chapters ends with a case study, critical thinking exercises, and an extensive bibliography including primary and secondary sources for further study. There are also several new chapters featuring international theorists. A companion resource is available, which includes ways to apply the theories in real-life nursing practice.
Assessment: "This is one of the most complete and comprehensive books on nursing theory and nurse theorists. Each chapter follows the same format, making it very easy to compare the theories and theorists. The credentials, background, and picture of each theorist begin each chapter and make the theorist come alive to the reader. Birth and, if applicable, death dates are also listed to help the reader put the theorist in a historical context. Other helpful features are diagrams of complex theories. This would be a valuable reference for any student and any nurse who wants to learn more about nursing theory. "
From the Publisher
This book serves as a model or a paridigm: it represents the notion of theory to students, and provides an induction into what, for the nursing literature, counts as theoretical discourse.

Nursing Philosophy

Mary Ellen Wurzbach
This book identifies major theoretical thinkers innursing, reviews their ideas, lists their publications, discusses whathas been written about them, and the major sources they used for theirworks. It also includes chapters about the analysis of nursingtheories, terminology used in theory development, the history andphilosophy of science, logical reasoning, theory development processes,and the evolution of nursing theory development. The purpose, asindicated by the authors, is to be a tribute to nurse theorists. Thebook is written for nurses and nursing students, both graduate andundergraduate. The authors are very credible authorities on thesubject of nursing theory. The book contains tables that explainportions of the theories. In addition, diagrammatic models of thetheories and pictures of the theorists are provided in each chapter. The references are both historical and current, since many of thetheorists did their beginning work in the 1960s. The appearance of thebook is excellent. Unique features of the book are the bibliographiesof the theorists' work, their sources, and other writers who havewritten about the theorists. This book is very useful for teachingboth graduate and undergraduate nursing students. The current updateddescription of the theorists' backgrounds and theoretical sources,including a discussion of each theory, is very helpful for theorysurvey courses. It makes the theorists come alive for students. Theextensive bibliographies of each theorist's writings, sources, andcritiques of their work are very comprehensive. As a systematicoverview of nursing theorists, this book has few rivals. The reviewerwould definitely recommend purchase by nurses interested innursingtheory, graduate and undergraduate students, and nursing referencelibraries.
