This modern classic presents authoritative, up-to-date descriptions and analyses of 28 nursing theories in a clear, succinct format. With the addition of two new international theorists, it now provides a comprehensive presentation of 33 nursing theorists and their work. Extensive, updated bibliographies at the end of each chapter, split into primary and secondary sources, direct the reader to excellent resources for further study. Each chapter guides the reader through an expert overview of a specific theory-some reviewed and validated by the theorists themselves-in a logical chapter organization that makes information easy to follow. Its comprehensive and thorough approach, objective critiques, clear writing style, and consistent organization combine to make this new edition of Nursing Theorists and Their Work ideal for theory instruction at both the BSN level and the graduate level..
