Practically everyone associated with business and management would agree that employees are one of the most important assets of an organization. Due to its importance, many motivation and leadership theories have evolved over the years.
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.
gs: firstly, at the primary level its main objective is to demonstrate and foster the development and refinement of a body of knowledge describing the paradigms which exist within the many fields of research and secondly, at the practice level or applicatory level, to present an
Grand theories integrates other theories that replicate and provide significant insights for nursing practice and are not tailored for experimental test (Blais et al., 2006). Grand nursing theories comprise of theoretical structures defining
As Basavanthappa (2007) asserts, theory without practice is unimaginative, and practice devoid of theory is visionless. In essence, theory is paramount to effective nursing practice and research. According to McEwen and Wills (2014), grand nursing
