Overview

Nursing Theory: Utilization & Application, 5th Edition covers the development of nursing theory; the application of different nursing theories, models and philosophies; and the expansion of these practices with a look toward the future. This text provides the opportunity for students who have learned the background of nursing theory using the companion title, Nursing Theorists and Their Work, to apply what they have learned to actual nursing practice through various patient scenarios.



• Real-life case history examples
included in application chapters promotes evidence-based practice and further demonstrates how a theory is used in practical situations.
Consistent case history featuring the patient Debbie in every chapter and the nursing plan that follows help you apply philosophies, theories and models presented in the text.
Critical thinking exercises provide a more application-based approach rather than just contemplation of theories presented.
Chapters written by contributors who utilize the work offer a unique approach to using theory in practice.
Nursing metaparadigm discussion illustrates the four center concepts with which the discipline is concerned to help you see the scope of concern for the profession.
Logical organization presents content in three distinct parts.
Glossary offers quick access to key terms throughout the text.



• NEW! Nursing Care sections
demonstrate how theories apply to certain situations and particular types of nurses.
NEW! QSEN competencies throughout the book relate nursing theories to today’s important focus on patient safety and quality improvement.
NEW! Nursing theory timeline helps you place different nursing theories and theorists in history, illustrating the progression of the content.
NEW! Fresh design helps you visually identify the text’s relationship with its Nursing Theorists companion.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book demonstrates the use of theory for patient-focused nursing and serves as a companion to Nursing Theorists and Their Work, 7th edition, Alligood and Tomey (Elsevier, 2010). Through case applications from actual nursing practice, it illustrates ways that nursing students and practicing nurses can apply theory and critical thinking.
Purpose: The purpose is to demonstrate how nursing philosophies, theories, and models guide nursing's critical thinking and decision-making.
Audience: The audience includes nursing faculty and students at all levels of education from undergraduate to masters to doctor of nursing practice (DNP). It also could be used for in-service education for nursing staff development.
Features: The book is divided into three parts, Conceptualization, Application, and Expansion. Part 1 is the history and background of theory and professional nursing practice. An extensive bibliography of research literature of theory-based nursing practice applications is included. The 16 chapters in part 2 identify the major nursing theories and models, showing how each guides nursing thought and action. Case examples and critical thinking exercises demonstrate application. Part 3 presents areas for more theory-based research with tables that show gaps in theoretical application.
Assessment: This is a very comprehensive book on theory and application. The various patient scenarios help guide readers in ways they can use nursing philosophies, nursing theories, and nursing models in everyday practice. It is, as the editor states, useful for nurses and students at every educational level.
