As an instructor one must also be able to combine their clinical abilities with the following teaching skills: designing curricula; developing courses/ programs of study; teaching/ guiding learners; evaluating learning; documenting the outcomes of education process; facilitate learning, advocate the development of professionalization of future nurses, and design appropriate learning experiences ("NLN," 2002).

The Roles and Ways of Knowing for a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Through the practice of scholarship, theories, models and conceptual frameworks the Advanced Practice Nurse integrates clinical knowledge into evidence based practice. Healthcare reform has created a need for the advanced educated nurse at the Bachelor through Doctorate degree level. The nurse practitioner has become the norm in healthcare settings and is found in every specialty along the lifespan. Educational and clinical requirements defined by the APN Consensus Statement sets the standard for entry into clinical practice. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Position Statement on Defining Scholarship for the Discipline of Nursing (1999), the APN/DNP’s role of scholarship serves to benefit nursing research, teaching, education, and the practice of nursing itself.

Please see the “Nursing Theorists’ Grading Criteria” document, located on the Materials page of the student Web site. Name: Crystal Kent, RN Theorist Selected: Sister Callista Roy Description of Theory: Adaptation refers to “the process and outcome whereby thinking and feeling persons as individuals or in groups, use conscious awareness and choice to create human and environmental integration” (Jones & Bartlett, 2010). The adaptation level represents life processes and are described by Roy in three levels: integrated, compensatory, and compromised life processes. Roy’s Adaptation Model uses coping processes, both innate (genetically acquired) and acquired (learned or developed) to adapt in a manner that achieves optimal health and well being.

Name: kisha Theorist Selected: Dorothea Orem Description of Theory: According to Somchit, (1989), Orem’s theory, “Focuses on self-care needs of the patient and is a deliberate action of the nurse who views patients in terms of their self-care capacity. Orem has specified the relationship of her concepts into a set of theories that are interrelated in nursing: theory of self-care deficit, theory of self- care, and theory of nursing systems. With Orem’s theory the focus of nursing is the individual, more specifically the individual’s self-care requisites.

APNs can facilitate the ability to practice both the art and science of nursing and reduce the chasm between theory and practice by using nursing theory as a foundation. According to Chism, nursing theory is made up of ideas brought together by associated expressions that characterize, clarify, and foretell phenomenon that are in accordance with nursing viewpoints (Chism, 2013). Nursing theory helps to identify what should shape the foundation of practice by clearly describing nursing. It is essential the APN use nursing theory in evidence-based practice, to provide better patient care, improve communication between nurses, and as a guide for nursing research and education. In addition, because the main champion of nursing, caring, cannot be quantified, it is crucial to have a theory to examine and spell out what the APN does.
