The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate how middle-range theory can help you in your everyday environment as a nurse. In the previous assignment (Part 1), you identified a clinical practice problem that you are aware of in professional nursing practice. In this assignment, you will explore and apply a middle-range theory to solve the specific problem that you identified in Part 1.
Consider the problem that you described in the Part 1 assignment and the instructor feedback you received on your written response.
Write a paper (1,000-1,500 words) that describes how a middle-range theory can be applied to the identified problem. The paper should include the following:
Summary of the problem.
A description of a middle-range theory that could be applied to the problem. Include a rationale describing why this middle-range theory is appropriate to your identified problem.
A brief discussion of the middle-range theory’s origins.
A discussion of how the middle-range theory has been previously applied.
A discussion of the application of the middle-range theory to the identified problem. How would your practice change by incorporating this theory?
