Nursing theorists and their work by Ann Marriner-Tomey( Book )

This resource in the field of nursing theory provides an in-depth look at 49 theorists of historical, international, and significant importance. Each chapter features a presentation of a key nursing philosophy or theory. Case studies and critical thinking activities help bridge the gap between theory and application. A case study at the end of each theorist chapter puts the theory into a larger perspective, explaining how the information can be applied to practice. A Major Concepts & Definitions box in each theorist chapter outlines and summarizes the theory's most significant ideas and clarifies content specific vocabulary. Each theorist chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography outlining numerous primary and secondary sources of information ideal for research projects. Critical Thinking Activities at the end of each theorist chapter assist in the processing of the theory presented and the application of it to personal and hypothetical practice situations. Introductory chapters a strong foundation in the history and philosophy of science, logical reasoning, and the theory development process. Diagrams for theories help in the visualization and better understanding of inherently abstract concepts. Each theorist chapter is written by a scholar specializing in that particular theorist's work, often an individual who has worked closely with the theorist. Most chapters have been reviewed and edited by the theorist for currency and accuracy, further validating the accounts set forth in the text. Theorist birth (and if applicable, death) dates help to place each individual into a time context

New nurse transitions: a qualitative study of perceived difficulties by Daphne Michelle Carter Brewington( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The transition from student to registered nurse has proven difficult for new graduate nurses. While organizations have implemented structures and processes to support new nurse transition into practice, new nurse turnover continues. The retention of new nurses is important to sustaining a stable workforce, as they are utilized to fill vacancy gaps in acute care settings. In addition, the retention of new nurses is important to patient safety and quality of care. Current research suggests that turnover rates among new nurses have decreased in some organizations, namely those that have implemented residency programs. Questions remain as to whether the decrease in turnover rates is due to the implementation of these innovative programs or a response to the current economic environment. Both qualitative and quantitative studies identify factors that contribute to the difficulties of the transition. These studies have focused primarily on developmental factors such as competence, confidence and support. This qualitative study utilized van Manen's (1990) phenomenological approach to gain meaningful insight into and understanding of the difficulties new nurses face as they transition from the role of student to practicing nurse. This study is unique in that it provides a comprehensive perspective to fully examine the difficulty of the transition for new nurses. Four major themes emerged from this study's findings: transitioning into the role of professional nurse, applying knowledge to practice, navigating the organization, and building relationships. Nurse executives and leaders as well as nurse educators in academia may find these results useful to further develop and implement innovative strategies that address new nurse transitions from a broader perspective and with a more comprehensive lens

Appraisal of uncertainty while waiting for a kidney transplant by Janet B Pelletier( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This study tested a middle range nursing theory to better understand the experience of uncertainty in deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates with a goal of identifying ways to improve the care of persons by nurses as they await kidney transplant. From Mishel's Reconceptualized Uncertainty in Illness Theory a middle range theory was developed that proposes that deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates show growth through uncertainty as Mishel describes, waiting time for a transplant is related to the level of uncertainty, and growth through uncertainty is related to both waiting time and level of uncertainty in deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates. A descriptive survey research design was used to address two research questions: Do deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates experience growth through uncertainty as Mishel's Reconceptualized Uncertainty in Illness Theory proposes? What are the relationships among waiting time, level of uncertainty, and growth through uncertainty for deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates? The study sample was adults who: volunteered to participate, were English speaking and were actively waiting for a deceased-donor kidney transplant. A convenience sample of 134 deceased-donor kidney transplant candidates was recruited through dialysis clinics, an electronic message posted on a National Kidney Foundation message board, and a mailing to deceased- donor transplant candidates registered with a transplant center. A strength of the study was the sample size and the sub-sample of 103 African American persons. Mishel's Uncertainty in Illness Scale-Community version was used to measure uncertainty and the Growth through Uncertainty Scale quantified growth through uncertainty. The relationships among waiting time, level of uncertainty and growth through uncertainty were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficients. The independent-groups t-test was used to compare those waiting above and below the national median time to transplant. Of the proposed relationships, a significant positive relationship between waiting time and growth through uncertainty was found. The findings provide further description of the uncertainty experienced by transplant candidates who are waiting for a deceased-donor kidney. The present study also supports the concept of growth through uncertainty when sustained uncertainty is present, contributing to the development of Mishel's Reconceptualized Uncertainty in Illness Theory
