#### Applying Theory to a Practice Problem

Order Description

This paper needs to be written in 3 parts. Must use APA 6th edition. An abstract is not required. The teacher did not specify how many references are needed so just add as many as you use. Each part of the paper must be labeled as Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. They need to be separated because I need to turn them in separately.

In Part 1, you will identify a practice problem from a review of a peer-reviewed journal then write an introduction to the paper. The introduction should state the purpose of the paper, which includes applying theory to practice situations, identifying the practice problem and stating the rationale for the selectionâ€”i.e. why is this an important problem, as well as defining the practice problem and supporting it with the literature review.

In Part 2, you will apply a middle-range theory to the problem described in the introduction 1. Describe the theory, starting with a short bio of the theorist along with the major influences that the theorist has contributed 2. Describe the concepts and propositions of the theory. Provide an example from the literature as to how the theory has been applied 3. Apply the theory to your practice problem, demonstrating the links to the elements of the problem and theory. In addition, make sure to describe how practice would change by incorporating the theory. It should be clear to reader that this is an appropriate theory for the problem.

In Part 3, you will apply a borrowed theory to the problem described in the introduction 1. Describe the theory, starting with a short bio of the theorist along with the major influences that the theorist has contributed 2. Describe the concepts and propositions of the theory. Provide an example from the literature as to how the theory has been applied 3. Apply the theory to your practice problem, demonstrating the links to the elements of the problem and theory. In addition, make sure to describe how practice would change by incorporating the theory. It should be clear to the reader that this is an appropriate theory for the problem 4. Write a conclusion. The conclusion should summarize key points of the paper. Identify the usefulness of applying theory to practice, including both nursing and borrowed theory, and identify problems with the application of the two theories presented in Parts 2 and 3.
