This learning activity supports the following Course Outcome that will be evaluated in the course learning assessment (CLA): Apply a model of practice to advanced nursing roles.
In the assignment for Unit 4, you will locate a theoretical model from a different discipline (other than nursing) that you could apply to nursing. You will explain why you have chosen the theoretical model and then apply the characteristics of it to your advanced practice role. Theoretical models can be found in many other disciplines such as leadership, business, education, or technology.
This learning activity will expand your understanding of how nursing uses conceptual models / theories from nursing and other disciplines in practice. Each theoretical model has unique characteristics that allow the nurse to impact systems, improve the delivery of care, and enhance the health and wellbeing of people needing care. During the learning activity, you will explore the characteristics of a variety of theoretical models and consider how they can be used in nursing.
