concepts of Garner's theory follow guidelines that can be determined from experiments. Thirdly, Garner's theory addresses the issue of the cognitive abilities of individuals while the Science of Unitary Human Beings addresses the general health of individuals. Lastly, Rogers' theory has most of its application in the nursing practice while the theory of multiple intelligence is mainly applied to nursing education. The Science of Unitary Human Beings has been applied extensively in works of research. The research that is based on this theory enhances the understanding of the mutual relationship that exists between human and environmental field. The non-invasive modalities that were proposed by Rogers have made sure that patients receive the best medical services in their health problems. These modalities are the use of humor, guided imagery, therapeutic touch, consistent in-service education, meditation, music, and the use of color (McEwen & Willis, 2017). Through the implementation of these modalities, patients can coordinate better with their environment. Therefore, a patient's movement towards better health has been eased significantly. It is for this reason that Rogers' theory is more focused with psychotherapy support and pain management towards patient's rehabilitation. On the other hand, the Multiple Intelligence Theory focuses more on nursing education. Conclusion The use of nursing theories has played a significant role in the delivery of quality healthcare services to patients in the nursing practice. There are however some similarities as well as differences between theories. The two theories explored examined different aspect but had similarities where concepts are concerned. Rogers' theory is specifically of great significance in the way a patient and his or her environment are taken as one before treatment is done. The main
focus of nursing, according to this theory, is to promote the well-being and health of all individuals. Non-nursing theories have also been widely used effectively to ensure that quality healthcare services are provided to both patients and their families (Reed & Shearer, 2017). Garner's theory of multiple intelligences breaks down intelligences in eight different categories because it recognizes that people have different ways of learning and thinking. The different nursing theories that exist gives nurses some level of flexibility as it relates to patient care. Therefore, nurses should ensure that during their studies they explore the different theories, and see how applicable they are to their patient' care as each care is unique. This will ensure that at the end of the day patients are given what works best for them. References Alligood, M. R. (2017). Nursing Theorists and Their Work-E-Book. Elsevier Health Sciences.
