The healthcare field is one that is continually in high demand to exceed the healthcare needs of all patients, which in turn requires the nursing profession to continue to go above and beyond to make refine and improve nursing practice. The needs and standards of care must be met, so to do so, we must place an emphasis on expanding our knowledge base within the clinical setting. In the past, the foundational knowledge of nursing relied on other disciplines, and according to Meleis (2012c), “when it continues to be dependent on other disciplines and paradigms for its sources of ideas, a scholarly discipline cannot have its needed autonomy to pursue ideas that are fundamental to the discipline or a sense of accountability” (p.111). Silva (1999) states, “ (I) predict that theory in general and nursing theory in particular will be more essential for nursing's prominence in the 21st century than in the 20th century.” To continue to move forward in the future, the discipline will demand a more collaborative approach throughout different interdisciplinary teams. Discussing the clear theoretical bases of nursing, Randell (1992) concurs that a distinctive body of knowledge must be in place before the nursing discipline can study new phenomenon in collaboration with other disciplines.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
