Models of Practice
What is a model?
A model demonstrates the researcher\’s interpretation of how concepts are related to one another and are developed based on qualitative research. Models often are precursors to theory development.
Three of the most prominent nursing models categorized as focusing on goals and functions include Florence Nightingale’s environmental model of nursing, Dorothy Johnson’s behavioral system model, and Nola J. Pender’s health promotion model.
In this assignment, you will locate a model of practice that you could apply to nursing. It does not need to be a nursing model. Models of practice can be found in leadership, business, education, and technology. You will explain why you have chosen the model and apply the model to your advanced practice role in the template provided.
