Critique of Nursing Theories 

Students will apply the following guidelines to the critiques of nursing theory:

  1. Introduction
  2. Select      a grand or broad theory and a mid-range theory of nursing practice.
  3. Use      the “Guide for the Description of Theory” and “Guide for      the Critical Reflection of Theory” (Chinn & Kramer, 2018, Chapter      8) to critique the theories selected.
  4. Compare      and contrast the broad and mid-range theory.
  5. Using      the broad theory as a framework, describe a client situation and expected      outcomes.
  6. Outline      the process of advanced practice as articulated within the theory      selected.
  7. Using      the mid-range theory, describe how an advanced practice nurse would      facilitate the outcomes identified in the broad theory. (A diagram of      theories as they are applied to the client may be included).
  8. Conclusion
