Application of Theory

Nursing theory influences diverse facets of nursing profession by presenting nurses with applicable straightforward concepts and a step-wise roadmap for promotion and implementation of nursing interventions developed through reflection, clinical inquiry, and critical and innovative thinking for resolving nursing issues (Patel et al., 2015). Nursing theory is applicable in many nursing areas including nursing education, nursing research and development, nursing informatics, and nursing administration and management/ leadership for enhancement of patient care quality, health promotion, and improvement of total health outcomes (Patel et al., 2015). This paper provides an overview of the Patient-Centered Nursing (PCN) framework, explains how it addresses the four concepts within nursing meta-paradigm (person, health, nursing, environment), how it qualifies as a nursing profession theoretical framework and its use in nursing profession, and its applicability in the future Family Nursing Practice (FNP).

An Overview of the PCN Framework

The PCN model was developed by McCormack and McCance in 2006, and was refined in 2010 to improve its applicability to nursing practice. In PCN model, a patient’s health needs, values, preferences, and desired patient outcomes are the driving forces to every clinical decision as well as quality measurement. Patients become involved in their care through patient-provider interaction, and thus the providers do not only care for the patient from a clinical view but also from mental, spiritual, emotional, and socio-economic perspectives (McCormack & McCance, 2016)…….Please click the icon below to purchase full solution at $10
