In this assignment, you will explore and apply borrowed theory to solve the specific problem nursing burnout, 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 of nursing burnout.
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 the application of both the borrowed theory and the middle-range theory can be integrated to create the most appropriate solution to the identified problem.
