Dorothea stated that patients could recover more quickly and holistically if only they were allowed to conduct their daily living activities on themselves to best their abilities. The theory can be applied is solving problems that may arise in the nursing care units both patiently focused problems as well as administrative issues in meeting their needs as well as identifying possible ways of solving and coping with their problems (Orem, 2003).
When a patient is unable to conduct their self-, care needs a self-care deficient result. In the hospital, setting it is the job of the nurse to determine the resulting deficits and ways of supporting and solving the deficits. This can be achieved by total compensation, partial compensation as well as educative and supportive assistance. Dorothea described self-care requisites that are necessary for good health of the patient. These include food, water, elimination, air, activity and rest, social interaction, and hazard prevention necessary to ensure good health of an individual. The scenario chosen involves problems in the nursing leadership, in a nursing unit. The manager of the unit ought to recognize the associated problems and develop ways of solving them (Castle, Engberg, & Men, 2007).
A nursing unit is experiencing rapid turnover its nursing staff including nurse managers. A new manager from an outside source is appointed to lead the nursing unit. Similar to the role that is played by a nurse in the care of patients ensuring that patients need to take care of their activities of daily living to improve on their health, the leadership management in the nursing unit needs to recognize the deficits in their system to solve their problem.
A major issue in the nursing unit is a rapid turnover of the staff including the manager due to leadership and organization issues that affect them. As a result, a new nurse manager is introduced in to the organization and is required to take care of the

The purpose of this paper is to choose a middle range theory that may be applied to the predicament of high blood pressure. This paper will describe the theory, its application in research, its application to research, and an alternative theory that may guide practice in an identical situation. The situation of the scenario involved patients who had an increase in average systolic blood pressure and an increase in diastolic blood pressure and were seeking ways to deal with the high blood pressure problem.
According to the paper the paper will briefly explain the main components of the model and discuss its application in the nursing practice. Ultimately, the paper will analyze the McGill nursing model and the challenges experienced in applying the model in the delivery of nursing care. The McGill nursing model is a health promotion model based on the idea of nursing as a significant field in the provision of health care.
Nursing professionals use nursing theories, whether grounded, middle range or practice level theories, as a way to bring efficacy in their practice.

After a prolonged period of hypoxia, the patient was successfully reintubated and the air passage was secured. But after several hours, the baby developed tonic clonic seizures and was medicated. A neurologist was consulted and stat CT was done. The physicians attending to baby AB told the parents that it was possible the baby developed a hypoxic injury.
Rounding has been proven by several studies as improving all of these issues (DeCoteau, 2009). Many hospitals have initiated hourly rounding only to find it stop within a short time after it was initiated. Since this is a best practice according to the literature, this paper will review the best practice, apply middle range theory to the problem and select a borrowed theory to try to keep the new practice in place.
Nurse leaders use nursing theories as a guide in solving their issues. Notably, grand nursing theories offer a structure that nurse leaders employ to adopt interventions (McEwen & Wills, 2014). One of the grand theories that
The researcher states that by portraying the application of the theory by the nurse leaders, it offers an alleyway for the nurses to commence caring in an analytical manner in their practice and change in the way they interact with patients. This can assist in reducing compassion fatigue, which results in many nurses resigning from acute care where they are needed most.
