Applying nursing theory ( middle range) and adding a Borrowed theory to it

Applying nursing theory ( middle range) and adding a Borrowed theory to it


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.


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:

A brief summary of the problem including the potential middle-range theory that could be applied.
A description of a borrowed theory that could be applied to the problem. Is this borrowed theory appropriate to your identified problem?
A brief history of the borrowed theory\’s origins.
A discussion of how the borrowed theory has been previously applied.
A discussion of the application of the borrowed theory to the identified problem. How would your practice change by incorporating this theory?
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.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Assignment 2: Middle Range or Interdisciplinary Theory Evaluation

As discussed this week, middle range theories are widely used as a framework for investigating nursing practice issues. Moreover, ideas from other scientific disciplines, such as sociology and environmental science, are applicable to nursing practice. In the next weeks, you will investigate the use of interdisciplinary ideas in nursing.

This Assignment requires you to analyze and apply two middle-range or transdisciplinary theories to a clinical practice issue. You will also develop a hypothesis for an evidence-based practice project to tackle a clinical issue, based on each theory.
