Introduction: Identify the theorist and rationale for the selection.
Describe the theorist (short biography and major influences on the theorist).
Indicate the category under which the theorist falls (can use McEwen & Wills classification or other source).
Incorporate assumptions underlying the theory (including how metaparadigm concepts are defined).
Include major concepts of the theory.
Include major propositions of the theory.
Provide examples from the literature of how the theory has been used.
Describe how the theory will be integrated into practice at your institution (or how it will be used as a foundation, framework, etc.). This is an action plan.
Give concrete examples of how theory would be integrated (e.g., assessment guide) and what patient outcomes could be measured as a result of implementing the theory.
Conclusion: Contrast present practice with what would take place if the theory were guiding the practice.

Have one member of the CLC post the Grand Theorist Report in the Module 8 Discussion Forum.
You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin, unless otherwise directed by your instructor. If so directed, refer to the Student Success Center for directions. Only Word documents can be submitted to Turnitin.
my chosen theory ; Grand Nursing Theorist Report
The purpose of this paper is to explain the elements of a theory and how to apply it to nursing practice. The theorist chosen was Dorothea E. Orem and her self-care deficit nursing theory. This theorist was selected because her theory provides an exceptional organizational tool to guide nursing practice and evaluate care. It is said that “Orem’s theory is composed of three interrelated theories: the theory of self-care, the self-care deficit theory, and the theory of nursing systems” (Gonzalo, 2011).
use rubric please
Identification of theorist is present with rich details that support claims. Accurately presents the major influences behind the development of the theory. 10%
Thoughtfully analyzes and evaluates major concepts and propositions of the theory. Demonstrates a deep understanding of theories and models. Explores the assumptions underlying the theory including how metaparadigm concepts are defined. 20%
15% Application of theory with a hypothesis of how practice will change as a result is comprehensively presented, and claims are supported with detailed evidence that is reinforced from research. Provides multiple concrete examples of how theory will change practice (ex. assessment guide, staffing plan, patient outcome measurement, interventions)
15% Plan clearly and thoroughly explains how the theory will be integrated, used as a foundation and framework, in the practice/administration of the institution. Provides clear details and thoroughly supports rationale. Addresses multiple aspects involved (training, process changes, etc.).
