Discussion Question #8 Original Due Saturday at 2359

 This assignment is worth 1 Points

After reviewing our three nursing theorists presented this week in chapters 29, 30, and 31. Let’s reflect upon the events that are taking place in healthcare today (Covid-19 Pandemic). Which theorist would you select to construct a framework for care of your staff and patients? Please explain why with examples.

***Think about some of the concepts involved. Examples include fear, isolation, family separation, being pregnant and exposed to the virus, psychological issues, guilt, impacted care standards.

Please remember to post your original response, followed by two separate responses to your colleagues on separate days. Remember your citations and follow the course grading rubric. I am thanking everyone in advance for their outstanding work as alwa

Nursing Theory Grading Rubric Discussions and Reading Reflections.docx

Discussions and Reading Reflections:

· Participation in online discussion is an expectation of students enrolled. Giving this is an online class, discussions allow for class participation and interactions. A discussion week is Sunday to Saturday (11:59 pm EST).

· On specific weeks, there are questions or topics to be discussed. You are to post your initial post and respond to all professors posted questions. Initial posts must be made no later than Wednesdays at 11:59 pm. You will also be required to respond to at least two of your peers during the week. Failure to do so will cause a point’s deduction. You must also post at least four days per week. All posts cannot be posted on the same day.

· The initial post will be regarding the week and will be at least 250 words. Provide appropriate references and utilize APA style. Peer posts will be at least 150 words, otherwise will be counted as 0, all subsequent post must be in APA format and properly referenced. There will be 8 discussion posts worth 1 point each. To obtain full credit students must follow the above requirements. Each discussion will be allocated to a specific Master’s Essential.

· Besides the weeks that a discussion question is not posted, the student will be mandated to post a reading reflection paragraph (5-6 sentences, with reference material) regarding the assigned chapters of that week. These posts will be counted towards participation grade.

· In addition, on weeks 15 and 16, each student is to write a small reflection paragraph and post it objectives reflection” in answering what you have learned from this class, where the objectives you had for the class met and how do you anticipate the use of research.

· The reflection posts are your personal viewpoints regarding your reading assignments. No responses are required to your classmates’ posts. This applies to reflection assignments only.

For Lecture – Middle Range Theorists

· Week 14

As we progress through the latter part of our course and exploration of additional nursing theorists. I do not know if anyone has noticed that the concepts have a closer correlation with the issues that are applicable to current practice.

Think about the duties that you are currently performing, advanced technology, and relevant concepts that we currently encounter. This week as we progress though our Middle Range Theories, we are going to look at the Barrett’s Theory of Power as Knowing Participation in Change, Smith’s Theory of Unitary Caring, and Swanson’s Theory of Caring. What comes to mind when we think of these theoretical viewpoints in nursing?

Section VI: Middle Range Theories

Chapter 29 – Barrett’s Theory of Power as Knowing Participation in Change

In brief this theory proposes, is the capacity to participate knowingly in the nature of change characterizing the continuous mutual process of people and their world. The observable, measurable dimensions of power are awareness, choices, freedom to act intentionally, and involvement in creating change (Barrett, 1983).

How does one engage in transformation? What does it involve?

Major assumptions of Barrett’s Theory of Power as Knowing Participation in Change include:

(1) power is a phenomenon that exists in the universe; (2) human beings are born with power; (3) no one can give power to another, and no one can take power away; and (4) human beings have free will and can knowingly participate in creating change (Smith & Parker, 2015).

Chapter 30 – Marlaine Smith’s Theory of Unitary Caring

Unitary Caring Science offers a personal-professional path of authenticity, bringing universals of Love, Energy, Spirit, Infinity of Purpose, and Meaning back into nurse’s lives and their life’s work. Unitary Caring Science serves as a continuing, evolving message to the next generation of nurse scholars.

How can we apply this concept to the practice environment of todays nursing?

An analysis of the caring literature revealed that caring was a multidimensional concept that assumed multiple meanings depending on the framework within which it was situated or the lens from which it was viewed (Smith & Parker, 2015).

Chapter 31 – Kristen Swanson’s Theory of Caring

Swanson’s caring theory outlines five caring processes: knowing, being with, doing for, enabling, and maintaining belief. Nurse educators can utilize these caring processes to teach nursing students by cultivating meaningful, healing relationships.

Spending time with your patients, what will you gather from them as a nursing professional? What collaborative initiatives come to mind?

Smith and Parker (2015) states, when a provider takes the time to know, be with, do for, enable, and maintain belief in the other, the recipient feels a
