Easy to read without diluting the complexity of the content, Theoretical Basis for Nursing, 4th Edition is the most contemporary and concise nursing theory textbook on the market.

This acclaimed book focuses on the application of theory, as well as the study, analysis, and critique of theories.

With this approach, authors Melanie McEwen and Evelyn M.

Wills inspire students to appreciate nursing theory and its ability to transform their practice, while helping them build skills they will use in developing, analyzing, and evaluating theory in their future careers. The book covers “shared” theories (from other disciplines in the sociologic, behavioral, and biomedical sciences); organizes grand theories based on human needs, the interactive process, and the unitary process; and demonstrates applications of theory in nursing practice, nursing research, nursing administration and management, and nursing education. This Fourth Edition strengthens its focus on the connection between theory and practice.

This edition also includes a new chapter on evidence-based practice and additional learning activities online.
