Nursing Theorists and Their Work, a classic in the field of nursing theory, provides a comprehensive resource on 49 theorists of historical, international, and significant importance. Each chapter contains the key nursing philosophy and theory written in a clear style with consistent presentation. Case studies and critical thinking activities provide the necessary resources to bridge the gap between theory and application. . A case study at the end of each theorist chapter puts the theory into a larger perspective, demonstrating a way in which the information can be applied to practice. . This text continues to provide the most comprehensive look at nursing theory with the work of 39 theorists discussed. . A Major Concepts & Definitions box is included in each theorist chapter, outlining and summarizing the theory's most significant ideas and clarifying content-specific vocabulary. . Each theorist chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography outlining numerous primary and secondary sources of information ideal for research projects. . Critical Thinking Activities at the end of each theorist chapter ask students to process the theory presented and to apply it to personal and hypothetical practice situations. . The beginning chapters on the history and philosophy of science, logical reasoning, and theory development process present a strong foundation. . Diagrams are provided for most theories to help students visualize-and thereby better understand-inherently abstract concepts. . Chapter on Afaf Meleis provides information on a theorist who has shaped theoretical development of nursing and her theory: "Transition Theory" . Points for further study at the end of each chapter direct students to assets available for additional information. . Need to know information is highlighted in bulleted-summary boxes interspersed throughout the chapters to review key concepts. . Personal touches in the form of quotes from the theorist will be added to make each complex theory more memorable. . Unit introduction will include information to help the students understand the type of "work" that will be studied.
