Critique of Nursing Theories and PowerPoint Presentation. Students will apply the following guidelines to the critiques of nursing theory:
Select a grand or broad theory and a mid-range theory of nursing practice.
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.
Using the broad theory as a framework, describe a client situation and expected outcomes.
Outline the process of advanced practice as articulated within the theory selected.
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).
The body of the paper should not exceed 8 pages. Grading is according to the Grading Rubric for Written Assignments found in the first content section of the course in D2L. The paper is submitted to the Assignment box of the course in D2L.
Students will prepare a presentation of the nursing critique using PowerPoint. The presentation should be no longer than 20-25 minutes in length or 20 slides (excluding the title and reference slides).
Use Correct APA Format. Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
