Explicate a selected nursing theory or conceptual model from

you would apply the theory/conceptual model to your advanced nursing practice.
Identify whether your chosen theory or model falls within the totality or
simultaneity paradigm and explain why that view may be preferred in your
practice understandings. Finally, explicate in four single statements, how that
theory or model has guided and further developed your understanding of each
metaparadigm concept. In other words, how does the theory direct your
understanding of (a) person, (b) health, (c) environment and (d) nursing?

Conduct a literature search in one or more of the nursing
databases on the potential topic or problem of interest to you for your

nursing theory or model was used as a framework for the research study or DNP
project. What insights has reading this article provided you in considering and

1 and 2?
Hint: If searching the Proquest Dissertations and Theses
database, use the search words: DNP (as author) and Nursing Theory (contained
