Grand Canyon NUR502 Week 4 Discussion DQ1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015
DQ 1
Explain, in your own words, the difference between the three paradigms: human needs, interactive, and unitary process. Which of these best fits your philosophy of nursing?
DQ 2
Select one of the grand or middle-range nursing theories. How does the theory demonstrate evidence of the utilization of social, behavioral, or bioscience theories?
Grand Canyon NUR502 Week 5 Discussion DQ1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015
DQ 1
All nursing theories are developed in space and time, and are not value free. Select one nursing theorist and explain the factors that influenced development of the theory (history, scientific paradigm, and personal experiences–mentoring, education, practice, other). Provide reference(s) for your response.
DQ 2
Select three theories and compare the definition of person/human being. Comment regarding which definition best fits with your own thinking.

Grand Canyon NUR502 Week 6 Discussion DQ1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015
DQ 1
Choose one of the middle-range theories. How could you use this theory to direct care in a nursing unit if you were the manager? Share your results
DQ 2
Choose one of the middle-range theories. What impact would this theory most likely have on your individual practice? Give specific examples.
Grand Canyon NUR502 Week 7 Discussion DQ1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015
DQ 1
The influence of consequential ethics as an ethical framework (the greatest good for the greatest number) opposes the ethical principle of deontology (i.e., the rightness of an act itself determines what is right). Both of these impact the nursing profession. Modern social exchange theories are based on the principle of utility. Read the assumptions of social exchange theory and consider how these would affect the nurse-patient relationship, compared to how these impact the nurse within the health care environment. To what extent are all theories ethical? Is social exchange theory compatible with the values of the nursing profession?
DQ 2
Which among the learning theories provided you with new information? How would you apply this in your practice?

week 4

This is a CLC assignment.
The purpose of this assignment is to have a clear understanding of the elements of a theory and to apply a theory to practice. The CLC group must use a grand theory or a high-level mid-range theory.
The group will create a report for a practice committee at a health care institution. The objective is to convince your peers of the value of using a specific theory to guide practice and evaluate care.
Since the text does not provide adequate information on any one theory for the purpose of this assignment, further research through nursing theory websites (general and specific), as well as theory texts specific to individual theories, will be required.
Begin the assignment by identifying a theorist and providing the rationale for the group’s selection.
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the GCU APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Refer to the directions in the Student Success Center. Only Word documents can be submitted to Turnitin.

1. A brief summary of the problem.
2. A description of a middle-range theory that could be applied to the problem. Is this middle-range theory appropriate to your identified problem?
3. A brief discussion of the middle-range theory’s origins.
4. A discussion of how the middle-range theory has been previously applied.

week 8

It is important to understand how borrowed theory can help you in your everyday environment as a nurse. In the previous assignment, you identified a practical problem that emerged from the evidence in the extant literature or professional practice, and you explored how middle-range theory could be applied to solve the problem. In this assignment, you will explore and apply borrowed theory to solve the specific problem that you identified previously, and you will synthesize the applications of the middle-range theory and the borrowed theory into the most appropriate solution to the problem.
DIRECTIONS:
Consider the problem that you described in the previous assignments and the instructor feedback about those assignments.
Write a paper (1,750 to 2,000 words) that describes how borrowed theory can be applied to the identified problem. The paper should include the following:
1. A brief summary of the problem including the potential middle-range theory that could be applied.
2. A description of a borrowed theory that could be applied to the problem. Is this borrowed theory appropriate to your identified problem?
3. A brief history of the borrowed theory’s origins.
4. A discussion of how the borrowed theory has been previously applied.
5. A discussion of the application of the borrowed theory to the identified problem. How would your practice change by incorporating this theory?
6. A discussion of how application of both the borrowed theory and the middle-range theory can be integrated to create the most appropriate solution to the identified problem.
