Concept Analysis

Order Description

Description of the Assignment
This assignment presents a modified method for conducting a concept analysis of ONE concept found in a nursing theory. The source of the concept for this assignment must be a published nursing theory. The selected concept is identified and then the elements of the analysis process are applied in order to synthesize knowledge for application within the model and alternative cases. Non-nursing theories may NOT be used. The paper concludes with a synthesis of the students new knowledge about the concept. The scholarly literature is incorporated throughout the analysis.
Only the elements identified in this assignment should be used for this concept analysis.
