NUR 502 Week 3 Discussion Question 2:
Read the AACN documents for essentials of baccalaureate versus master’s education and identify the competencies that reflect use of theory and knowledge. Compare and contrast the competencies for baccalaureate and master’s level.
NUR-502 Week 4 Discussion Question 1:
Explain in your own words the difference between the three paradigms: human needs, interactive and unitary process. Which of these best fits your philosophy of nursing?
NUR 502 Week 4 Discussion Question 2:
Select one of the grand or middle nursing theories. How does the theory demonstrate evidence of the utilization of social, behavioral or bioscience theories.
NUR-502 Week 5 Discussion Question 1:
All nursing theories are developed in space and time, and are not value free. Select one nursing theorist and explain the factors that influenced development of the theory (history, scientific, paradigm, and personal experiences-mentoring, education, practice, other).
NUR 502 Week 5 Discussion Question 2:
Select three theories and compare the definition of person/human being. Comment regarding which definition best fits with your own thinking.
NUR-502 Week 6 Discussion Question 1:
Choose one of the middle-range theories. How could you use this theory to direct care in a nursing unit if you were the manager? Share your results.
NUR 502 Week 6 Discussion Question 2:
Choose one of the middle-range theories. What impact would this theory most likely have on your individual practice? Give specific examples.
NUR 502 Week 7 Discussion Question 1:
The influence of consequential ethics as an ethical framework (the greatest good for the greatest number) opposes the ethical principle of deontology (i.e., the rightness of an act itself determines what is right). Both of these impact the nursing profession. Modern social exchange theories are based on the principle of utility. Read the assumptions of social exchange theory and consider how these would affect the nurse-patient relationship, compared to how these impact the nurse within the health care environment. To what extent are all theories ethical? Is social exchange theory compatible with the values of the nursing profession?
