The only text to feature examples of 30 key concept analyses supporting nursing research and practice

This DNP and PhD doctoral-level nursing text delivers analyses of 30 core concepts that define nursing theory, research, education, and professional practice. Grounded in the concept analysis framework developed by Walker and Avant, the book clearly demonstrates how concepts are used to build theory, support research, and improve education and professional practice. Designed to facilitate practical applications of concept analysis methodology, all chapters provide an explicit description of each concept and a consistent framework for its analysis. Additionally, a diagrammatic representation of characteristics across concepts allows readers to make comparisons and ultimately to build on the text’s knowledge base.

Expert authors from clinical and research disciplines focus on the core of nursing-- the nurse-patient relationship--grouping concepts into the categories of patient/client-focused concepts, career-focused concepts, and organizational/systems-focused concepts. Within these groups the book addresses such contemporary themes as hope, postpartum depression, resilience, self-care, cultural competence, and many others. With its expansive descriptions and analyses of key nursing concepts within a consistent framework, the book will help nurse scholars to develop a sophisticated analytic ability and provide graduate nursing students with a foundation for developing a DNP capstone or PhD research project. Key Features:

  • Offers in-depth description and analyses of 30 core concepts relevant to nursing and related disciplines

  • Provides a consistent analytic framework throughout

  • Demonstrates a highly practical application of concept analysis methodology
