Instructions for completing Critique: Conceptual Nursing Framework:

The following is a template for you to use as you complete the assignment.

Of the conceptual frameworks listed in Table 1, your group should select 3 to explore further. (ROY’S ADAPTATION MODEL,  WATSON’S THEORY OF HUMAN CARING, OREM’S SELF CARE MODEL) You may use your Alligood text and/or other available eBooks on nursing theorists (found on The Library Guide for NUR 18200). These texts have reference lists that are helpful as well, if you’d like to dig deeper in understanding a particular conceptual framework. Several nurse theorists even have their own websites!

The 3 conceptual frameworks your group chooses is your choice. Each is like a “lens,” offering a certain way of viewing nursing phenomena. Chances are you already view nursing (and the world, in general) according to one of the three nursing paradigms but just didn’t have a name for it…until now!

Complete Table 2 (Selected Conceptual Frameworks: Basic Assumptions and Concepts Defined), providing a brief summary of basic assumptions and how concepts are defined for each of the 3 conceptual frameworks. From these 3 conceptual frameworks, select 1 conceptual framework from Table 2 and complete Table 3 (Selected Conceptual Framework: Conceptual Framework Evaluation Criteria Applied). The 5 criteria in Table 3 are to be used to evaluate and critique your selected conceptual framework. The criteria are also presented in Week 3: Presentations, “Theory Evaluation Criteria.” Explain your answers to the questions posed in the critique, providing rationales and examples (i.e., provide more than “yes” or “no” in your responses).

Provide a reference list of the resources you used to complete this assignment.
