Theory, practice, and research comprise the triad of nursing. Watch a vignette where a patient complains of pain in her right leg. The nurse realized she suffered from deep vein thrombosis by comparing the temperature of both legs.
Nursing theory examines interrelated concepts, definitions, relationships and assumptions. Interventions must be realistic and acceptable to the patient for a successful outcome. The nurse and her student decide to provide pain management, address concerns about a changes of lifestyle, and emphasize the importance of taking medication and periodic laboratory testing.
Nurses must evaluate interactions to provide effective care. Watch a role-play where the patient understands her change of lifestyle and participates in her treatment regiment. Incorporate nursing theory into your practice and apply a nursing lens.

Nursing theory is the foundation of knowledge for the direction and delivery of nursing care and is used to describe, explain, predict, and develop a plan of nursing care. This program presents the learner with important concepts about how nursing theory is applied to the care of patients. It distinguishes between "grand theories" and mid-range theories, teaches how to implement an expanded nursing assessment, and details how to perform appropriate nursing interventions and evaluations.
