Uniquely organized to help readers find and select the best frameworks for their needs

This resource illuminates the daunting task of understanding and applying philosophies, models, theories, and taxonomies in nursing practice and research at the masters or doctoral level. Distinguished by a unique organizational structure, the text is divided into two broad areas of practice/focus; individuals and families (Part II) and communities, populations, and systems (Part III). The frameworks in each area are organized conceptually into 17 chapters, many of which are interdisciplinary, thus not commonly found in nursing theory texts. This unique organizational structure enables readers to acquire both a broad overview of frameworks useful in nursing practice and research, and to focus on frameworks relevant to specific practice areas and concepts of interest.

Frameworks for Advanced Nursing Practice and Research also provides foundational knowledge to enhance the nurse’s understanding and appreciation of frameworks used in practice and research (Part 1). Application is woven throughout the text and culminates with chapters devoted to the application of frameworks for nurse educators, clinicians, leaders, and researchers. Learner-focused features of the text include application boxes highlighting published studies that have employed selected frameworks, thereby bringing theoretical content into practice. Each chapter also includes objectives, key terms, and a bulleted summary to enhance the learning experience.

Key Features:

  • Describes a broad spectrum of philosophies, models, theories, and taxonomies underpinning graduate-level nursing roles
  • Uniquely organized by conceptual areas, thereby integrating nursing and non-nursing frameworks
  • Facilitates easy comparison of frameworks within each conceptual area
  • Delivers strategies for using theory and discusses integration of theory, research, and practice
  • Includes application boxes highlighting published studies, objectives, key terms, and bulleted chapter summary.
