Introduction: Nursing Theory: Application to Nursing Practice (04:32)


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.

Theory (10:52)

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.

Evaluation (03:05)

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.
