New Title: Middle Range Theory for Nursing
Middle Range Theory for Nursing
Mary Jane Smith and Patricia R. Liehr
This third edition of a two-time AJN Book of the Year Award winner contains two new theories, including self-reliance theory and transitions theory. It revises and updates all other content and provides ladders of abstraction for each theory to guide students in their appropriate use. This highly accessible book integrates nursing theory with well-defined practice areas, and identifies purpose and basic concepts, foundational literature, relationships among concepts, and use in practice.
