Remember when you first learned about theories in school? There was the Big Bang Theory, the Theory of Evolution, Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation (law is a theory that is so universally accepted that it is considered an absolute), Archimedes’ Buoyancy Principle, and the Three Laws of Thermodynamics. You can probably describe them even if you don’t have them memorized.
You also probably remember Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development, Erikson’s Eight Stages of Psychosocial Development, and Pavlov’s Theory of Learning. There are many more that you have been exposed to in your education.
What makes them theories? How do you identify a theory? As a practicing nurse, can you identify the concepts and propositions of the theories of Orem, Watson, Roy, Henderson, Peplau, Leininger, Rogers, and Nightingale? What makes them theories and what makes them nursing theories? As a scholar within a profession, your decisions and practice are based upon the theories of the profession. Research using quantitative measures is used to test theories.
Qualitative research is used to create theory. The practice of nursing is based upon well-documented and supported theories with evidence well-established in peer-reviewed literature. A nursing scholar with an advanced degree must be intimately familiar with nursing theory, how to evaluate it, and how to use it.
