Overview/Description:
The purpose of this assignment is to describe, evaluate and discuss application of a nursing grand or

3. Examine crucial references for the original and/or current work of the theorist and other authors

writing about the selected theory.
4. Identify the phenomenon of concern or problems addressed by the theory

Theory Description
1. Explain whether the theory uses deductive, inductive or retroductive reasoning. Provide evidence to

support your conclusion.
2. Describe the major concepts of the theory. How are they defined? (theoretically and/or

operationally) Is the author consistent in the use of the concepts and other terms in the theory?
3. Interpret how the concepts are defined. Implicitly or explicitly?
4. Examine the relationships (propositions) among the major concepts.
Evaluation
