Discussion Activity: Nightingale, Henderson, King, and Peplau provide us with theories that were well ahead of their times. These theories hold relevance to nursing today. Conceptual frameworks define nursing practice and continue to inform theorists today who have expanded on their theories. Because theorists have been so influential to nursing practice, it is imperative that we look closely at the relevance of their ideas to nursing practice today. Consider as you reflect on the readings how these theories inform you as you develop your role as a nursing leader.
Select either Nightingale and Henderson or King and Peplau theories.
Compare and contrast two primary elements of each selected pair of theorists.
Provide examples for your selected pair related to your practice.
Discuss how your selected pair links nursing theory and spiritual care when planning interventions and suggesting resources for patient care.
