NURS 8114 Applying Interdisciplinary Theories to Nursing Practice DQ

NURS 8114 Applying Interdisciplinary Theories to Nursing Practice DQ

Using the same practice issue from the Week 2 Discussion and an interdisciplinary theory you will be
assigned, you will research your assigned theory for applications in addressing your practice issue.
Although your focus is exploring one theory in depth, as you engage with colleagues, consider other
theories that also apply to your practice issue. Learning from colleagues is particularly important and
encouraged with this Discussion.

To prepare:
 Your Instructor will assign you an interdisciplinary theory from among the following:
o Health Belief
o Health Promotion
o Change
o Disease Causation
o Transformational Leadership in Nursing and in Health Care
o Patient-focused Care/Patient-centered Care
o Problem-based Learning
o Simulation (Jeffries/NLN)
o Cultural Competence/Diversity
 Review the Learning Resources, with particular attention to information on your assigned
theory.
 In addition, search the Walden Library for at least two scholarly articles published within the
previous 5 years on your assigned theory. Identify examples and insight for applying this theory
to your practice issue.
 Consider how to explain your assigned theory and its applications to nursing practice and the
specific issue you are addressing.
Note: Your initial post is due by Day 3. Contact your Instructor if you have not received your assigned
theory on Day 1.
With these thoughts in mind …
By Day 3 of Week 3

Post a brief description of your assigned theory and your practice issue. Then, explain how you would
apply your assigned theory to your practice issue and explain your reasoning. Be specific and provide
examples. Cite your sources in your post.
Read a selection of your colleagues’ posts.
By Day 6 of Week 3
Respond to at least two colleagues on 2 different days. Choose colleagues who were assigned different
theories than your own. Respond to their posts in one or more of the following ways:
 Critique their application of theory to their practice issue and either explain why you support
their thinking or recommend a different theory to consider, which may be the theory you were
assigned. Explain your thinking.
 Drawing on their explanation of their assigned theory, describe how this theory applies to your
practice issue and explain your reasoning.
 Compare and contrast their assigned theory with your own for application to practice issues.
Support your reasoning.
Note: For this Discussion, you are required to complete your initial post before you will be able to view
and respond to your colleagues’ postings. Begin by clicking on the "Post to Discussion Question" link and

Week 3 Discussion

Modules 1–2 Assignment: Written Philosophy of Nursing Practice

You began this Assignment in Module 1 and will continue developing your philosophy of nursing practice
in Module 2. This week, consider specific middle range nursing theories that align with or can stretch
your thinking about nursing practice. Keep in mind your Assignment is due by Day 7 of Week 3.

To prepare:
 Reflect on the current draft of your philosophy of nursing practice and how, or in what ways,
your philosophy is grounded in science.
 Pay particular attention to the middle range theories you explore in the Week 2 Discussion and
how these theories relate to the practice issue you identify.
 Consider how to integrate applications of nursing middle range theories (from the Week 2
Discussion or others) into your philosophy statement to strengthen or deepen how nursing
science informs or guides your philosophy of nursing practice.
The Assignment (3–5 pages)
Continue to develop your written philosophy of nursing practice by identifying at least two middle range
nursing theories that apply to your nursing practice and explaining how each theory supports your
philosophy. Include at least two scholarly resources for this element of your philosophy.
Reminder: The College of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction,
summary, and references. The Sample Paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an
example of those required elements (available
at https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/templates/general#s-lg-box-20293632). All
papers submitted must use this formatting.
There is no submission due this week.
Submit your philosophy of nursing practice by Day 7 of Week 3.

What’s Coming Up in Week 3?

Next week you will take a broader look at applications of theory to nursing practice. You will also
complete your written philosophy of nursing practice, which is due by Day 7. Plan your time accordingly.
Week 3 Discussion: Assigned Theories
For the Discussion next week, your Instructor will assign to you one of nine interdisciplinary theories for
investigating applications to nursing practice. In responding to your colleagues’ posts, you are

encouraged to choose colleagues who are assigned a different theory from yours. Refer to the
Discussion “to prepare” section for the list of featured theories.

Note to the Course Instructor (click to expand/reduce)

Note to the Course Instructor: In preparation for the Week 3 Discussion, please assign each student one
interdisciplinary theory from among the following:
 Health Belief
 Health Promotion
 Change
 Disease Causation
 Transformational Leadership in Nursing and in Health Care
 Patient-focused Care/Patient-centered Care
 Problem-based Learning
 Simulation (Jeffries/NLN)
 Cultural Competence/Diversity
The required Learning Resources in Week 3 provide a basic explanation of each theory. Students are also
directed to search the Walden Library for at least two current scholarly articles that provide examples
and insight for applying their assigned theory to a practice issue. Please make the theory assignments on
or before Day 1 of Week 3, to ensure students have adequate time to prepare and post their initial
response by Day 3.
Next Week

To go to the next week:
Week 3
Week 3: Other Theories That Support Nursing Practice
The value of interdisciplinary learning is the beauty of drawing on knowledge and strategies from
multiple fields. Imagine how ill prepared a nurse would be who only studied human systems. Patients
are naturally more than a collection of systems. They have personalities and perspectives that are
shaped by experiences, culture, and other factors that impact health and wellness. To know how to help

the patient, understanding of these other factors, such as how cultural norms may influence disease
prevention or the success of a treatment regimen, is crucial.
In the same way, the nursing middle range theories you examined in Week 2 are not the only theories
that apply to and can guide nursing practice. Theories from other sciences, such as psychology and
sociology, as well as from other fields, such as business, also have potential to support nursing practice.
This week you will explore a range of interdisciplinary theories through your Discussion with colleagues.
You will also complete your module Assignment by considering how interdisciplinary theories may
contribute to creating a philosophy of nursing practice that can be a beacon on your DNP journey.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
 Analyze interdisciplinary theories for applications to nursing practice
 Compare applications of interdisciplinary theories to nursing practice
 Explain philosophy of nursing practice
 Analyze factors that influence philosophy of nursing practice
 Recommend strategies for social change advocacy for the role of the DNP
 Analyze middle range nursing theories in relation to philosophies of nursing practice
 Analyze interdisciplinary theories in relation to philosophies of nursing practice
