Answer each question fully. Be sure to review discussion board rubric to avoid points deductions. Please be sure to cite 2 sources in your initial post and use APA style.
1. Find one nursing theory that you relate to in your current practice.
I’ve gone back and forth between Hildegard E. Peplau’s Interpersonal Relations Theory and Joyce Teavelbee’s Human-to-Human Relationship Model. Theory of Interpersonal Relationships. My current practice is traveling to various regions for COVID-19 response to care for the growing number of individuals who’s been affected by this illness. Both theories apply. However, I’ve decided to go with Peplau’s Interpersonal Relations Theory. During my travels providing care for individuals affected by COVID-19, I’ve cared for many individuals with different cultures, race, beliefs, past experiences, values, expectations, preconceived ideas, etc.
Describe the theory briefly and how it relates it to this practice. It can be a grand theory, middle range theory etc.
2. Find a theory (any) that you feel will be useful to you in the future as an advanced practice nurse and then talk about how you might use this theory. For example, I frequently counsel overweight teenagers in my practice about increasing the amount that they exercise and I often use the transtheorectical model of change to gage where they are in the process of change (ie. precontemplation, maintanence, action etc.)
