Abstract "Providing an essential overview of nursing theory in a single, straightforward text, Theoretical Basis for Nursing, 6th Edition, equips students with the knowledge and understanding to apply nursing theory to practice and improve as nurses. Unlike some nursing theory texts, this AJN Award-winning resource goes beyond demonstrating the application of theory to teach students-regardless of their level of experience in theory-to think critically and analyze, evaluate, and apply theories with confidence. This updated 6th Edition remains the most concise and contemporary nursing theory text available, reflecting the growing professional emphasis on clinical judgment, evidence-based practice, situation-specific theories, and their relationship to theory in nursing. Extensively researched, easy to read, and rich with engaging learning features, this acclaimed text provides nursing students and practicing nurses alike with an approachable guide to being a better nurse"-- Provided by publisher.
