Write a minimum of three sentences as an introduction here. Don’t forget to cite properly. The last sentence in this paragraph should read as follows. The purpose of this paper is to describe the purpose of applying nursing theory to patient care, explain the meaning of nursing theory as it relates to current practice and how it can be applied prior to planning and the provision of care, and identify a theory that best reflects my personal view of the essence of nursing.
Purpose of Applying Nursing Theory
Write in this section what literature says about applying nursing theory to patient care. Use proper citations. Don’t forget to have a minimum of three sentences per paragraph.
Subsection Heading (this is if you have more than one purpose listed above and you want to break them down).
The subheading above would be used if there are several sections within the topic labeled in a first level heading. This is a Level 2 heading, and it is flush left and bolded, and the initial word and each word of four or more letters is capitalized.
Subsection Heading (only needed if you have more than one purpose listed)
APA dictates that you should avoid having only one subsection heading and subsection within a section. In other words, use at least two subheadings under a main heading, or do not use any at all. Headings are used in order, so a paper must use Level 1 before using Level 2. Do not adjust spacing to change where on the page a heading falls, even if it would be the last line on a page.
The Meaning of Nursing Theory
Explain the meaning of nursing theory as it relates to current practice here using three or more sentences and proper citations.
Nursing Theory Applied Prior to Planning and the Provision of Care
Explain how nursing theory can be applied prior to planning and the provision of care. Make sure you have at least three sentences and proper citations.
Name of Your Nursing Theory of Choice Here
Remember that nursing theories are only capitalized in the title above. You do not capitalize them in the paragraph. Here is an example. Jean Watson’s theory of caring consists of …… Then explain how and why it best reflects your personal view of the essence of nursing.
Write three – five sentences succinctly summarizing the high points of each section and tie them together with a closing statement. Do not introduce anything new here.
