an 8 year old girl has a history of asthma. She is well known to our hospital due to frequent
visits for asthma exacerbation. Multiple teachings had been done with mom, the patient and
family members. One time, while the little girl was admitted to the hospital, the mother
stated “my daughter is doing fine, look how playful she is” meanwhile the patient was
wheezing, tachypenic and using accessory muscles to breathe. The doctor told the mother
that it is essential not to assume her daughter is okay just because she is playful, and that she
must look for the signs of respiratory distress and know when she needs her treatments.
Unfortunately, the patient’s next visit for asthma exacerbation lead to cardiac arrest upon
arrival to the ER. Fortunately, the child was resuscitated, but she now has a tracheotomy, gtube, neurologically she is unable to track, talk, walk or sit up on her own. A perfectly
healthy child has now become a total care. Mother had to learn how to care for her daughter
in ways she never imagined such as G-tube feeds and medications, tracheotomy care and
changes, changing diapers on her 8 year old and more.
The chronic sorrow theory isn’t just about experiencing a death but also an ongoing sorrow
such as having a disabled child, which is why I think this story would be perfect.

COURSE ASSIGNMENTS:
All assignments, including the written paper assignment, are due on the date specified in the course schedule and must be
submitted via the course website’s ‘Assignments’ link. Late assignments will not be accepted without PRIOR approval of the
faculty member. A grade penalty may result from late submission, even with prior approval (e.g., 10 percent reduction in
grade for each day late).
Biosketch (5%)
A biosketch posting is required for the following three aims: (a) provide an introduction to your class community, and (b)
share any nursing theory you have used in your nursing practice or have been used as a practice philosophy in your agency.
Learning Quizzes (25%)
There are five learning quizzes in this course comprised of 5 points each. The learning quizzes are multiple choice. These are
open book/open unit quizzes intended to support your learning in the course.
University Center for Excellence in Writing (UCEW) Consult (10%)
The UCEW supports and promotes writing for all members of the FAU community. Consultants help students at any point in
the writing process (i.e., brainstorming, drafting, revising) and with papers for courses and much more. The focus is to
provide writing aid rather than an editing service.
This assignment entails a two-fold purpose: (a) Active engagement by the learner with UCEW services for writing your paper
from start to finish, and (b) Basic knowledge of all of the UCEW resources.
In this assignment, you are required to schedule an online or face-to-face appointment with a UCEW consultant for review of
the Theory Application Individual Paper and review the content of the UCEW webpage (Link is located under the Scholar-toBe Button in the course).
Points are earned with completion of the online 10 point quiz that measures your understanding of UCEW resources, APA
style, and providing a paragraph about what you gained in the meeting with the UCEW consultant in the Discussion area.
Theory Application Individual Paper (35%)
The theory application individual paper involves using theory to guide nursing actions in a clinical scenario. First, the paper
involves determining the phenomena with its concepts. Secondly, the paper provides in-depth analysis of the theory and its
concepts. Finally, the paper will allow the learner to apply the theoretical concepts to a nursing situation in a clinical
environment. In addition, this paper supports your personal and professional development as a scholar in the nursing
discipline.
The purpose of this assignment is to:
1. Identify and apply theoretical principles from a middle range nursing theory to the concepts of a phenomenon or
situation in one’s clinical practice
2. Conduct a comprehensive library database search using appropriate controlled vocabulary and limiters and expanders to
locate scholarly references related to the theory and phenomenon; and
3. Critically analyze and apply the theoretical principles to a nursing situation in a clinical environment.
4. Engage in writing to learn as a means to strengthen the written presentation of concepts and ideas essential to nursing
scholarship.
Begin by identifying an area of specialty interest. From this interest recall an observation from your practice experience and
write a short summary or scenario describing the nursing phenomenon or situation. Specify the concepts of the phenomena.
Select one middle range theory that pertains to or explains the phenomenon identified. Next, specify the concepts of the
theory that pertain to the phenomena.
Search a selected bibliographic database in the library to locate references pertaining to the concepts of the phenomena and
theory and retrieve the most appropriate articles to reference in the discussion of the nursing situation. The body of the
paper demonstrates a refined understanding of the nursing situation in light of the information from the journal articles and the
theory. Primary sources are to be accessed.
The assignment concludes with a discussion of the concept, phenomenon, theory, and how it applies to his or her practice. The
paper content should be nearly 5-7 pages (excluding the title page, reference page, and appendix) and prepared in APA style
(levels of headings, double spaced, in-text citation, and references).
Criteria
Introduction (Do not put this heading in your paper)
Short paragraph to introduce the topic with demographic characteristics, prevalence
and/or incidence of the patient-centered phenomenon. (1 point)
Specify a thesis statement (2 points)
End this paragraph with an aim/purpose statement.(1 point)
Body (Develop a different heading)
Patient-centered phenomenon as a nursing situation is clearly described (1.5 pages)
One middle range theory is identified with rationale for why this theory pertains to the
phenomena of interest
Concepts of the theory that apply to the phenomenon are explained
Concepts are applied related to the phenomena of interest with a short rationale/reason
(Insert relevant level of heading(s) appropriate to paper organization)
The concepts from the theory and the phenomena are used to retrieve relevant articles
(Minimum of 8 theory, theory-related research, and other data sources published within
the last 5 years with exception for seminal theory articles). Content from articles are
related to the topic. Content from article(s) are applied to the practice situation within
the context of the selected theory
Nursing interventions and/or actions are identified and discussed
Conclusion (Develop a different heading)
Summarizes purpose of paper, implications for practice, and specific recommendations
for research (and health policy as appropriate)

Mid Range Theory Nursing Situation Group Presentation (25%)
The purpose of this assignment is to apply mid-range theory to a nursing situation. The approach entails use of a Functional
Analysis and a brief Theory Critique (see Peterson & Bredow, 2017, pp. 40-42). A nursing situation is a shared and lived
experience in which caring between the nurse and the nursed enhances personhood. The nursing situation can expand from the
patient to include the family, community, and the world. It can specify the philosophy of the health care agency and its
environment.
As a group specify a nursing situation. Next, select a mid-range theory and specify its application to the situation. The middle
range theory must be different from what any of the group members selected for the assigned individual paper.
Finally, identify the recommendations for practice, research, and health care policy (This can include specifying changes to
the agency’s mission and vision statement).
Students can self-select to a group. Up to 5 students will comprise a group (smaller groups may occur depending upon course
enrollment). You can access your group under Groups. Groups will be given access to group communication, virtual
collaboration, file sharing, blog, and wiki features.
