For undergraduate and graduate students, practicing nurses, and nurse researchers, educators, and administrators who are interested in the development and dissemination of nursing knowledge and its use in guiding their activities, nurses Fawcett and Desanto-Madeya outline the conceptual models and theories of nursing. They describe the components of nursing knowledge, including the metaparadigm, philosophies, conceptual models, theories, empirical indicators, and their relationship; strategies used to implement models and theories in real-world nursing; specific models and their analysis and evaluation, such as the behavioral system model, the conservation model, the science of unitary beings model, and the adaptation model; and nursing theories and their analysis and evaluation, including the theory of health as expanding consciousness, the theory of the deliberative nursing process, the theory of interpersonal relations, and the theory of human caring. The CD contains information about audio, video, and Internet resources, a searchable bibliography, and searchable lists of applications in practice and research.
