Purpose

This assignment provides the opportunity for the student to complete an analysis of a concept found in the nurse practitioner role supported by a nursing theory using an identified process. The assignment fosters analytical thinking related to the selected concept as well as an application within the profession.

Activity Learning Outcomes

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

CO 1: Demonstrate logical and creative thinking in the analysis and application of a theory to nursing practice. (PO 2, 5)

CO 4: Analyze theories from nursing and relevant fields with respect to the components, the relationship among the components, and the application to advanced nursing practice. (PO 1)

Students are expected to submit assignments by the time they are due. Assignments submitted after the due date and time will receive a deduction of 10% of the total points possible for that assignment for each day the assignment is late. Assignments will be accepted, with penalty as described, up to a maximum of three days late, after which point a zero will be recorded for the assignment.

When the assignment is placed in dropbox, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin. You may submit the assignment one additional time before the due date to lower the Turnitin score. If you choose to resubmit, the second submission will be considered final and subject to grading. Once the due date for the assignment passes, you may not resubmit to lower a Turnitin score.

Description of the Assignment

This assignment presents a modified method for conducting a concept analysis of one concept that is important and useful to the nurse practitioner role.  The concept for this assignment must be supported by a published nursing theory. The selected concept is identified and then the elements of the analysis process are applied in order to synthesize knowledge for application as demonstrated through the creation of a model case. Theoretical applications of the concept are also discussed. Non-nursing theories may not be used. Scholarly literature is incorporated throughout the analysis. 

Only the elements identified in this assignment should be used for this concept analysis.

Possible Concepts: The following concepts are not required; students may select one of these concepts or find another concept. Each selected concept must be associated with a nursing theory; the use of non-nursing theories is not allowed. If you have any questions regarding your concept or the nursing theory, please consult with your faculty member for assistance. Please note: the concepts of caring or cultural humility are not permitted for this assignment.

 2. Defining attributes:

A minimum of three (3) attributes are required.
Support from nursing literature is required.
Explanation:  An attribute identifies characteristics of a concept.  For this question, the characteristics of the selected nursing concept are identified and discussed.

Antecedent and Consequence
1 antecedent of the selected nursing concept.
1 consequence of the selected nursing concept.
Support from nursing literature is required.
Explanation:  An antecedent is an identifiable occurrence that happens before an event. An antecedent precedes a selected nursing concept. A consequence follows or is the result of an event.  The selected consequence follows or is the result of the selected nursing concept.

  4. Model Case

1 Model Case is created by the student and discussed substantively by demonstrating within the case each of the following areas:
Definition
All identified attributes
Theoretical Applications of the Concept
Explain how the concept applies to the selected nursing theory.
Support from nursing literature is required.
Reflection
Reflect on how the concept analysis findings apply to your advanced nursing practice, specifically as an NP.
Self-reflection may be written in first-person.
