Hi,

Excellent questions!

RESPONSE:

1. Describe what a nursing conceptual model is and what it means to you.

According to Fawcett and Gigliotti (2001), the conceptual models of nursing inform thinking and give meaning and direction to nursing research. (http://nsq.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/14/4/339). Like concepts, theories may be classified by their levels of abstraction along a continuum from grand theories to practice theories. The grand theories guide research (as compared to mid-range theories are more applicable to practice)

For example, Fawcett and Giglioyyi (2001) argue that the Neuman systems model is A GRAND THEORY used to exemplify the following five steps, which provide specific direction for conceptual modelbased research: (a) Develop a comprehensive understanding of the substantive content and research rules of the conceptual model, (b) review existing research guided by the conceptual model, (c) construct a conceptual-theoretical empirical structure, (d) clearly communicate the conceptual-theoretical-empirical structure, and (e) conclude the report with an evaluation of the empirical adequacy of the middle-range theory and the credibility of the conceptual model (http://nsq.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/14/4/339).

In other words the grand theory (Newman systems model) guides research which then leads to formulating a mid-ranged theory, which is less abstract and fewer concepts, operatationalizable and testable and therefore applicable to nursing practice (http://www.sandiego.edu/ACADEMICS/nursing/theory/midrange/mckenna.htm).

2. What are the steps you would use in analyzing a conceptual model to determine if it is a model you would choose to apply in the clinical setting?

(a) Is the theory too abstract to operationalize concepts?

For example, McKenna (1997) argues that the …

This solution describes a nursing conceptual model, the steps to use in analyzing a conceptual model to determine if it is a model that can apply to the clinical setting, as well as which classifications of nursing theory that are most easily applicable and testable in the clinical setting and why.
