Topic 1: Grand Nursing Theory
Select one of the grand nursing theorists listed within the Unit 6 overview which is of interest to you and evaluate the information available about the model and the theorist to address the following questions:
1. What in the background of the theorist as a nursing scholar might have prompted her to develop the theory?
2. What are the central values and beliefs set forth by the theorist?
3. Which of the four metaparadigm concepts are included in the model?
4. Discuss the adequacy of the model. Did you think it was useful and in what area would you be more apt to use this model or theory in? Administration, education or practice?
Topic 2: The Future of Nursing
1. In response to the IOM report (The Future of Nursing Campaign for Action (2011). IOM Recommendations. Retrieved from http://thefutureofnursing.org/recommendations) explain how nursing theory can support the recommendations for the future of nursing.
Topic 1: Middle Range Theories
Select one of the Middle Range Nursing theories from Unit 7 overview and create a model case scenario, in which you will apply all or one of the following from the theory: concept, metaparadigm, and/or usefulness. Provide the background of the theorist and any concepts that developed from applying the theory to the model case scenario. Explain how you could apply this same theory into your advanced nursing role? After examining your model case scenario, what do you consider to be the strong or weak points to this theory?
Topic 2: Research and Practice
Explain why we need to continue to examine and promote the use of middle range theories in research and practice.
Topic 1: Ethical Dilemma
Think about an ethical dilemma you recently faced in your practice. Select a nursing theory that could have guided you in making a decision about the care of this patient. Explain whether the theory emphasizes the patient?s rights, goals and autonomy. Does it provide clear guidance for ethical decision-making in nursing? Does the theory emphasize ethical codes for practice? (Present your information according to HIPPA requirements)
Topic 2: Global Perspective

Select a theory or model that might be valuable in your advanced nursing role or that interests you. Explain your response to the following questions:
1. What are your personal values and beliefs about nursing, health, environment, and patient care delivery?
2. What are the underlying assumptions, values, and beliefs of the particular theory or model that you have chosen?
3. Is this theory or model congruent with your own values and beliefs about nursing, nursing care, nursing environment, and health.
Topic 2: Global
Select a global
view [paternalistic, feminist, modernism, postmodernism] and explain how this identifies to your overall outlook of life.
Topic 1: Reflection
Review the course outcomes at the beginning of the course (also listed in the course Syllabus) and assess how you have met each outcome. Include in your Discussion how assignments and readings have contributed to your development as a nurse in an advanced role. Remember to share some of your thoughts related to specific websites you found of value in your discussion.
Topic 2: Assimilation
communities of nursing scholars are sharing nursing theoretical works and contributing to the development of nursing knowledge. Evaluate the impact upon theory development for nursing now and in the future. How would you address staying current to healthcare issues in order to address future changes?
