NURS 7442 - Theory for Advanced Practice Nurses

This course is part of the core foundation of courses for all master’s nursing curricula. This course provides an understanding of the role of theory in shaping research and practice in health and nursing. The basic elements of theory, theory development, and critique are discussed. Theories as they relate to health and human functioning of individual, family, and group client systems across the life span are explored. Examples of grand, middle-range, and practice level theory from nursing and related disciplines are examined. In addition, developmental, structural, functional, and interactional theories and related research data are analyzed and critiqued. These theories from nursing and related disciplines are used as a guide for therapeutic nursing interventions.
