Overview

This classic work on the construction of nursing theory reflects the tremendous growth in nursing theory in the past 15 years. As in its first edition, the book provides conceptual tools for understanding the world of nursing in theoretical terms. It grapples with the question: Why is nursing concerned with theroy? The purpose of the book is to understand how conceptualizations and theoretical statements are developed and refined in nursing. Coverage includes basic terminology in theoretical thinking, principles of conceptual analysis, presentation of conceptual domains in nursing, and a systematic framework for theoretical analysis. Graduate students will find this a core resource.
