Nursing Theory : 

Nursing Theory “A creative and rigorous structuring of ideas that project a tentative, purposeful, and systematic view of phenomenon.” (Chinn & Kramer, 1995) “Learning a new discipline is guided by theories, use of language, identification of concepts, definition of relationships, structured ideas, and facilitation of disciplined inquiry, practice and communication, as well as predicting outcomes of practice.. “ (VanSell & Kalofissudis, 2003)


Professional PARADIGM CONSRUCTION sets of beliefs and practice shared by communities of professionals regulate inquiry, education & practice within disciplines contributes towards disciplinary knowledge construction requires assessment of personal, spiritual, cultural, social, intellectual and emotional concepts weaver k. & olson j.k. (2006) Journal of Advanced Nursing53(4), 459–469

Paradigms : 

Paradigms Personal Basic Education Philosophy in Life Culture, values and Mores Professional Goals Desire to Learn Personal Life and support system Emotional Maturity Resilience Environment Change in professional roles Availability of mentors Professional rewards Technology Work environment Organizational culture Opportunities

Current State of Nursing : 

Current State of Nursing Chaos and Complex environment Rapid changes in technological innovation Globalization of the healthcare industry Lack of training in adaptation to change Revolutionary changes in medical care Sky rocketing cost of medical care Sicker patients Pay for performance Nursing Shortage(educators, clinicians and leaders) Shifting Paradigms

Slide 8: 

“Thomas Kuhn defines a paradigm as a constellation of achievement, values and techniques, shared by a discipline to define legitimate problems & solutions.” (Kuhn, 1970) Paradigm shift is the result of a revolutionary break from the usual practice and way of thinking to a new vision of reality, a new, bigger perspective of the world. Dynamic World

Nursing Paradigm Shift : 

Nursing Paradigm Shift Mechanical paradigm The world is made up of building blocks & man’s illness is influenced only by the biological problem; medical model; nurses “DO” Holistic Paradigm Nurses focus on helping patients achieve balance and harmony within the mind, body & soul; pt. Centered Ecological Paradigm The world is embedded in the cyclical pattern of nature; science allowed simulation, modelling & thinking from quantity to quality (VanSell, 1995)

` : 

` Holistic Paradigm Views the entire individual in his or her physical, social, esthetic and moral realms instead of just certain aspect of human behavior or physiology. “Harmony, balance, synergy, yin and yang comes to mind.”

Slide 11: 

Deep Ecology Paradigm interdependence of all phenomena individuals and societies are embedded in the cyclical process of nature changes that nursing is going through is brought about by chaos & complexities requiring integrative thinking-being intuitive, be able to synthesize, holistic and non linear (Van Sell, 2002)

Slide 12: 

The only difference between revolution and evolution is the time it takes to make sustainable change. The over time waves of change

Star’s Paradigm Shifts : 

Star’s Paradigm Shifts

Professionalism :

Nurse leaders are responsible for creating research of discovery. They have the responsibility to test new knowledge; disseminate reliable and valid information to the public.

Nurse leaders have the responsibility to maintain competencies in personnel management and to continuously educate oneself to obtain the necessary competencies to perform the job.

Slide 19: 

Personal Motivating Factors Desire to enhance leadership repertoire To develop administrative skill sets (financial management/dev. of healthcare programs) To better understand & integrate clinical expertise & administrative skills to impact pt outcomes

Slide 20: 

Professional Goals 1. To serve in a leadership/executive level at a major healthcare organization; 2. To impact change that results in sustained quality improvement w/; 3. To influence pt outcomes by ensuring best practices based on evidence through research, policy making and collaboration. 4. To make a difference in healthcare by leading effectively through others

To extend the success of organizational and community projects to third world countries.

Slide 22: 

Why DNP… 1. Visionary program that prepares nurse leaders to be effective in today’s dynamic & chaotic healthcare milieu Jobes & Steinbinder (1996): “The new executive leadership roles require astute financial skills as well as expert executive administrative skills”

Slide 23: 

Why DNP… 2. New connection between ordinary events and theory 3. Continually & critically analyzing and questioning the efficiency of the status quo 4. Constantly asking, “What if?” Effective Leadership does not allow a fragmented view of health care delivery. (E. Hoffman)

Slide 24: 

Why DNP… 5. Well rounded approach to education Biostatistics, epidemiology, research critiques, literature review, strength of evidence Identification of vulnerable populations & specific needs of population Formative & summative evaluation of programs Cognates with other colleges in the University research clinical Identity devt & transformation leadership Teaching is a major Component of each competency

Slide 25: 

Why DNP… Leadership development through theory, mentorship, & clinical residency Clinical residency/mentor experiences (Dartmouth Hitchcock Med. Center & MD Anderson) Karlene Kerfoot (1998): “Management can be taught—leadership must be experienced to be learned…”

Slide 26:

Theory of Constant Adaptation to Complex Systems : 

Theory of Constant Adaptation to Complex Systems “Chaos & loss of certainty provide and opportunity to let go of things that are inherently changing & passing.” (O’Grady & Malloch, 2003) Nursing leaders can create theories that allows them to hypothesize, test, evaluate and disseminate new knowledge and concepts. This theory will focus on organizational change using nursing theories and maintain organizational sustainability and stability. Work in progress

Slide 30: 

“Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the change to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative or creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic and power in it.” Goethe
