Education: Nursing Theories and Nursing Practice

[slideshare id=11433893&doc=nursing-theories-and-nursing-practice-3haxap-120205155447-phpapp01&type=d]

Psychiatric Advanced Practice Nurses are trained in nursing theory that informs our practice.  This text book (inits entirety) offers the perspective that nursing theory is eventually connected with nursing practice. Great resource for those mid-career Psychiatric CNSs and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners who want to compare clinical and practical knowledge with how it was originally predicted by the nurses who wrote theoretically about what we do to guide our thought and actions as nurses.
