Disc 1
Application of Borrowed Theories to Advanced Nursing Practice (graded)
Explicate a selected borrowed theory, and provide an example of how this theoretical perspective has been implemented in evidence-based practice.
Thread 1
Welcome to our fifth week of class! It is hard to believe that our class is already more than halfway complete. As you have learned in previous lessons, theory development is an essential component of scholarship for the advancement of nursing knowledge. Many theories used by nurses are unique to nursing. This week, we will explore the usefulness of theories borrowed from other disciplines.
I am excited to open our first discussion for week five on Application of Borrowed Theories to Advanced Nursing Practice.
Explicate a selected borrowed theory, and provide an example of how this theoretical perspective has been implemented in evidence-based practice.
Please pay particular attention to your course outcomes from your syllabus:
CO4: Articulate how phenomena of interest found in nursing literature contribute to evidence-based practice. (PO 5)
CO7: Analyze the implementation of selected theoretical perspectives into evidence-based practice. (PO 5)
CO9: Synthesize the role of nursing theory and literary conceptual frameworks in guiding nursing research. (PO 5)
As you reflect on the lesson and your readings, I’m eager to hear from each of you regarding which borrowed theories from other disciplines you see evident in your practice. Don’t forget to cite the sources you use to demonstrate support for your position. I look forward to reading your posts!
Disc 2
Evidence-based Practice (graded)
Discuss how evidence-based practice promotes quality, safety, and improved outcomes in healthcare.
Our second discussion for week five is on evidence-based practice. In this discussion, we will explore ways in which evidence-based practice builds upon the product of theory development.
Discuss how evidence-based practice promotes quality, safety, and improved outcomes in healthcare.
As you examine this topic, please review the program and course outcome(s) addressed in this discussion:

ยท What are some differences you might expect between theory-based versus non-theory-based research?
I am looking forward to your discussion.
