As an example, when a nurse wants to understand how to better work with patients, there are many theories that provide a model of how this work can be done. As an example, Brant, Beck and Miaskowski (2010) evaluated the Theory of Symptom Management (TSM) and provided insight on why this evaluation was important. The authors state that understanding more about the interventions that are used in TSM provide a better way for nurses to develop other interventions. In this case, understanding a few ways that symptoms of some diseases are managed, can bring about other ways of managing these diseases.
Another reason that theories are important to understand is because it can lead nurses to the discovery of other diseases and how to handle them. As an example, Boggatz and Dassen (2011) provide information on a conceptual model for understanding why older people use nursing care. Their study is important because it showed what to look for when working with older people. They point out that seeking care is a self-care process in some respects, so it becomes more important to understand older people’s motivation for seeking care. This information can also provide reasons that older people do not seek treatment.

Nursing Theory. Nursing theories comprise concepts, relationships, definitions, and assumptions or propositions obtained from nursing models, and outline a purposive methodical view of observable facts by designing precise interrelationships among concepts for reasons of illustrating, explaining, foretelling and prescribing (Parker, 2005).
Having a structure of knowing and theoretical infrastructure in place is a great assistance in conducting operations quickly and efficiently in the emergency department. Introduction Since the latter half of the previous century, nursing theories have been developed to provide methods of thinking which provide direction in constructive diagnosis and solving problems in working with patients.
Furthermore, as the writer states, as a result of working in such a complex field, it is readily noted that there is no solitary theory that best explains nursing; rather, there are a litany of theories that all help to sufficiently provide a sense of diversity and nuance to this field.
It is widely believed that the term AI was first coined by John McCarthy at the Dartmouth Conference in 1955 in the famous paper entitled A Proposal for the Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence by John McCarthy, M. L. Minsky, N. Rochester, and C.E.
Through application of suitable theory for any given case, the outcome for the patient is far better when theory has been applied to the functions and premises of nursing.
