Borrowed theories used in nursing are the theories from social sciences such as feminist theory, and critical social theory etc. Theories from behavioral sciences are psychodynamic, cognitive behavior, humanistic, and social psychology etc. Benner’s model of nursing theory is about skill acquisition in nursing could be used by advance practice nurses in order to develop leadership skills and professionalism efficiently. It has been providing guidance for career development and continuing education in nursing. Jean Watson’s caring theory is well organized, logical in nature, and uses patient as focus of practice. The concepts of caring and holistic approach can be generalized to the advance nursing practice to provide high quality and safe patient care. The theory explains carative factors in a simpler way so that it is understandable and easy to follow. This theory is effective in relationship to graduate education as the theory introduces the concepts which are vital to comprehend science of human caring (Norman, Rossillo, & Skelton, 2016). It is so important to learn theories at both the graduate and undergraduate levels because this is where nurses begin building foundations as nursing professionals. Stronger foundation of theories will enhance advance nursing practice by guiding APNs to deliver, and evaluate evidence based care to improve patient outcome (Power, 2016). Therefore, we can concluded that all nursing theories are not same, there are several kinds of theories which are useful and guiding to APN practice. References Covell, C. L., & Sidani, S. (2013).

You did a nice job describing some specific nursing theories and relating them to APN for us. You are correct that all nursing theories are not the same as some focus on the nurse while others are more patient or environmentally focused. Thanks, Dr. Romeo Show Less Melissa Heath reply to Meera Sharma 3/12/2017 10:06:57 PM RE: Discussion Part Two Hi Meera, I also believe Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring provides a holistic framework comprised on ten carative factors and is imperative

to APRN practice. These are the fundamentals of the transpersonal caring relationship fostered through caring moments. The ten carative factors address: 1) Formation of a humanistic-altruistic system of values 2) Installation of faith-hope 3) Cultivation of sensitivity to one’s self and others 4) Development of a helping-trust relationship 5) Promotion and
