Week 4: Nursing Theories and Middle-Range Theories
1717 unread replies.3535 replies.
Considering the nursing theory you discussed last week (or a new one if you desire) describe how you would apply that nursing theory as a basis for nursing actions
related to your practice change idea(that you developed in a problem statement and PICOT in weeks 1 and 2.
Specifically relate theoretical concepts to the elements of your problem statement — how does the theory guide your ideas about the problem, etiology, population,
intervention and outcomes?
An example would be to explain how Roy’s adaptation model describes the victim of lateral violence in the work place. How does the model recommend assessing a
victim’s adaptation range and what modes of assessment (physiologic, self-concept, role and interdependence) would the nurse use to determine how positive coping
can take place?

Explicate a selected borrowed theory that you already know or one that you read about in this week’s lecture, readings or other materials. Provide an example of how this
theoretical perspective has been used to frame nursing knowledge, care or leadership in any health care setting.
List the concepts that constitute the theory and
Describe the relevance of those concepts to your advancing nursing knowledge and practice.
In other words, you would not describe Maslow’s theory as it relates to an entry-level, new graduate nursing assessment, but you could consider how an advanced
practice nurse, working on his or her doctoral degree would use that theory to improve patient outcomes, quality and safety, access or cost.
Similarly you could talk about how using Albert Bandura’s Self Efficacy concept facilitates more effective intervention in smoking cessation initiatives.

Week 6: Evidence Supporting the Clinical Question and Suggested Interventions
1313 unread replies.3232 replies.
Consider your inquiry and formulation of the clinical question thus far.
Explicate at least two pieces of evidence (current literature less than 5 years old) that support the idea that the problem you’re naming exists and is significant. For
example, here is a 2013 American Heart Association article on predicting and preventing early readmission: http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/126/4/501.full
Be sure to also note what the evidence says about the etiology or causative factors (what’s going on that influences this problem)? For example, in the article above,
early readmission rates are influenced (caused by) situations such as psycho social and economic factors that limit adherence as well as physiologic factors such as
elevated filling pressures.
Finally, point to the evidence that suggests an intervention that works to address the causes of the problem and to improve what we’re now seeing in clinical practice on
this topic. The AHA article named above suggests that interventions such as comprehensive discharge planning, including patient and caregiver education, guidance
regarding sodium and fluid restriction, collaboration with visiting nurses, and planned follow-up, may reduce early readmission rates by as much as 25%.
In other words, for your problem, grounded in the literature, what is the problem/etiology and what two pieces of current literature provides evidence supporting those?
Then what evidence supports the intervention idea to improve this problem situation?

Discuss the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in leading interprofessional collaboration and partnership for promoting safe clinical practice within healthcare systems.
Consider your reading this week from Chapters 6 and 10 in Zaccagnini, M. E. & White, K.W. (2014); and in light of that reading, discuss ways that you currently work in or
have developed interprofessional collaboration.
What more can you do relative to interprofessional collaboration as you move through your DNP education? Give specific examples of your current actions and future
plans and tell why those actions are likely to improve outcomes? Be specific.

Week 7: Emerging Roles for the DNP-Prepared Nurse
2727 unread replies.3838 replies.
What emerging DNP roles do you imagine yourself in upon completion of your degree? What skills and/or competencies do you think will be most beneficial to you as
you take on those advanced roles? Consider your readings in Zaccagnini, Chapters 8 and 9 as you formulate your discussion post. Compare your role in performing
traditional advanced practice actions to what is possible in emerging roles when you have completed your DNP degree.
