Creating a Concept Map
Provides an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the conceptual components of a theory. Building on this week’s Discussion, you will build a concept map to express the linkages and interrelationships of the concepts in the middle range theory you have selected.
Explore the various concept maps presented in Chapter 7 of The Practice of Nursing Research, as well as the Cooper and Veo articles.
Using the information presented in the Learning Resources as a guide, consider the linkages and interrelationships of the conceptual concepts for the theory you identified for this week’s Discussion. What relational statements could be articulated?
Create a concept map demonstrating the linkages and interrelationships of the theoretical concepts. Include a clear problem and purpose statement.
Express relational statements linking the concepts, literally and diagrammatically. You may use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or another software application of your choice; however, if you use a product that is not part of the Microsoft Office Suite, you must be able to save it as a PDF or RTF file.
IMPORTANT: Include references from the literature to support your work.
You need heading, you do not need a running head, you should not have a one-sentence paragraph. Similarity index is fine.
