Application of Nursing Theory to Practice (graded) You are a professional nurse caring for Mr. R, a 58-year-old patient who recently underwent surgery for colon cancer resulting in a temporary colostomy. Select one of the assigned or unassigned nursing theories from our textbook and address the following: Basic content and terminology of the theory or model you select, and How you would provide professional nursing care for Mr. R. using that theory. Be sure to use terminology from the selected nursing theory to explain your interventions. As stated in Lesson 7 “Theories allow nurses to see relationships among parts of a situation and to guide solutions to issues that arise in a given situation allowing the nurse to provide holistic nursing care for the patient and families rather than task driven care.” There are more than just the four theories that we read about this week. According to Orem’s self-care deficit theory, the purpose of nursing is to help people meet their self-care needs (Hood, 2013, p. 137).
