Theory, Research, and Practice.

PART ONE: Discuss each point below for full credit with sources cited and referenced to support the responses! Explain the relationship/connection between theory, research, and practice in nursing (How are they related and dependent on the other?) Why are research and theory important to the profession of nursing – be specific (Why can’t we just rely on medical research? Why does nursing need its own research and theories?) Discuss one recent practice change in your facility and how it affects patient care. Use ProQuest to locate two recent research articles that support this change. Or perhaps you will find that the research does NOT support this change. Cite your sources and discuss this. PART TWO: Read the case study in the coursework and apply Nightingale’s theory by answering the questions. Please be sure to fully answer all four questions in the coursework and label them with Level 2 headings as instructed above. All FOUR questions in the case study must be labeled separately and answered for full credit with sources cited and referenced to support the responses Case study: The Community Health Nurse knocked softly before entering Isabel’s bedroom. On this home visit Isabel was holding her 3-week-old baby girl, Pearl, while 2-year-old Jerry was sitting on the floor playing with a cat. In one corner, a full litter box sat on the floor next to the changing table. The nurse noted two half- empty 4-oz formula bottles on the changing table, an empty box of baby wipes, and three soiled cloth diapers. Looking into Pearl’s sleeping face, Isabel said “She’s finally fell asleep…I am so tired…Jerry stop teasing Freckles (the cat) and come over here and hold Pearl while I get something to drink…do you want something to drink?” The nurse quickly scanned the room, seeing an unmade bed with a bassinet wedged against the wall. Jerry’s bed, also unmade, was in the corner opposite the litter box. The small bedroom was stifling hot, the ceiling fan was not on, and the windows were closed. A table in the middle of the room had plates with partially eaten sandwiches and half-finished cans of soda. Based on this case study, how would the nurse practicing from Nightingale’s theory begin her home visit? What would be the priority for the nurse in this situation? How might Nightingale’s understanding of sanitation and environment guide the nurse in her home visit? How could the nurse develop a relationship with Isabel and return as a welcomed visitor in Isabel’s “home”? Nightingale started writing her theory over 200 years ago, why do you feel this theory is still important to nursing? How has the theory adapted or stayed relevant for over two centuries? Provide special examples and support your response with references. The paper should include at least 3 outside references and the textbook. The paper should be in APA format with an APA title page, introduction, level subheadings, conclusion, and reference page.
