Description of the Assignment

This assignment presents a modified method for conducting a
concept analysis of ONE concept found in a nursing theory. The source of the concept for this assignment
must be 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 within the model and alternative cases. Non-nursing theories may NOT be used. The
paper concludes with a synthesis of the students new knowledge about the
concept. The scholarly literature is incorporated throughout the analysis.

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

Criteria for Content

1. Introduction
The
introduction substantively presents all following 4 (four) elements:

Identifies
the role of concept analysis within theory development,
Identifies
the selected nursing concept,
Identifies
the nursing theory from which the selected concept was obtained, and
Names the
sections of the paper.

2.
Definition/Explanation of the selected nursing concept
This section includes:

Defines/explains the concept using scholarly literature (a dictionary
maybe used for this section ONLY, and additional scholarly nursing references
are required), and

Information
about the concept as discussed by the theorist from the selected nursing theory
is substantively presented.

A substantive discussion of this section with support from
nursing literature is required.

3. Literature
review
This section requires:

A
substantive discussion of at least 6 (six) scholarly nursing literature sources
on the selected concept.
Themes,
ideas, and/or facts about the concept found in the reviewed sources are
presented in an organized fashion.

Support from nursing literature is required.

Please
Note: Primary research articles about the selected nursing concept are the most
useful resource for the literature review.

4. Defining
attributes
For this section:

A minimum of
THREE (3) attributes are required.

A
substantive discussion of this section with support from nursing literature is
required.

Explanation: An attribute identifies characteristics of a
concept. For this situation, the
characteristics of the selected nursing concept are identified and discussed.

5. Antecedent
and Consequence
This section requires the identification of:

1 antecedent
of the selected nursing concept, and
1
consequence of the selected nursing concept.

A substantive discussion of the element with support from
nursing literature is required.

Explanation: An
antecedent is an identifiable occurrence that precedes an event. In this situation, an antecedent precedes a
selected nursing concept.

A consequence follows or is the result of an event. In this situation a consequence follows or is
the result of the selected nursing concept.

6. Empirical
Referents
This section requires the identification of:

2 (two)
empirical referents of the selected nursing concept.

A substantive discussion of the element with support from
nursing literature is required.

Explanation: An
empirical referent is an objective ways to measure or determine the presence of
the selected nursing concept.

7. Model Cases
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,

Antecedent,

Consequence,
and

Empirical
referent or Measurement

Information from selected nursing theory is applied to the
created model case.

A substantive discussion of the element with support from
nursing literature is required.

Explanation: A model
case is an example of the hypothetical individual who demonstrates all of the
attributes, antecedents, consequences, and referents noted previously in this
assignment.

8. Alternative
Cases
This section requires:

The
identification of 2 (two) alternative cases correctly created and
presented. The two required alternative
cases are:
Borderline
(absence of one or two of previously identified attributes of the selected
nursing concept.
Contrary
(demonstrates the complete opposite of selected nursing concept)

Applies information from selected nursing theory.

Explanation: Alternative cases represent the opposite of
the model case.

For this assignment, two alternative cases are
required. These are:

Borderline
case which is a created case where one or two of the previously identified
attributes are missing.
Contrary
case which is a created case that demonstrate the complete opposite of the
selected nursing concept.

9. Conclusion
This section requires:

Summarization of key information regarding:
o Selected nursing
concept,
o Selected nursing
theory, and
o Application of
concept analysis findings to advanced nursing practice.

The
concluding statements include self-reflection on the new knowledge gained from
