This week you will turn in a draft of your Personal Philosophy and Theoretical Concepts paper. Your paper should contain the following sections:
Nursing Autobiography: A brief (1 page) discussion of your background in nursing. This does not include future goals.( Medical dctor in cuba came to houston tx and started my carrer to become a family nurse practitioner)
Describe what the literature says about the basic four metaparadigms/concepts of patient, nurse, health, and environment. Do not relate the metaparadigms to the theory you have chosen.
Briefly describe the theory you have chosen.
Two Practice-Specific Concepts: in separate subsections discuss each of your two concepts:What is the definition of the concept (outside of the theory)?How does your theorist define your concept?How does this concept apply to your clinical setting? Give an example of how nurses in your area provide care that correlates with the theorist’s definition of the concept.
The paper is to be thoroughly researched and well documented, with relevant material from the nursing theorists presented incorporated into the paper. Use the current edition of the APA Manual throughout the paper. Sources should focus on references from nursing theory but may also include conceptual and theoretical material from other professional domains. Writing should be succinct and well organized, as it is impossible for the facilitator to evaluate form and content separately.
Your Personal Philosophy and Theoretical Concepts 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. Sources 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.
