The purpose of this assignment is to have a clear understanding of the elements of a theory and to apply Virgina Henderson’s The Nursing Needs Theory to practice. The group will create a report for a practice committee at a health care institution. The objective is to convince your peers of the value of using a specific The Nursing Needs Theory to guide practice and evaluate care.
Since the text does not provide adequate information on any one theory for the purpose of this assignment, further research through nursing theory websites (general and specific), as well as theory texts specific to individual theories, will be required.
Begin the assignment by identifying a theorist and providing the rationale for the group\’s selection.
Select one of the grand or middle-range nursing theories.
How does the theory demonstrate evidence of the utilization of social, behavioral, or bioscience theories?
