Your Concept Synthesis Paper is due this week. By the due date assigned, submit your scholarly paper, in which you have identified, described, researched and applied the concepts that underlie your personal philosophy for professional nursing practice.
Collate the work that you have done so far from Weeks 1–3, and submit your paper in the prescribed format to the Submissions Area.
Your paper should include:
- -Nursing Autobiography: (1 page) discussion of your background in nursing. My information: (4 years working in a rehab center with elderly population, 1 year working as a nurse in a jail, 1 year working as a nurse manager in a nursing home facility and 1 year working in a cardio-thoracic unit in a hospital)
- -The Four Metaparadigms: Identification, discussion, and documentation from the literature of your perspective on the four metaparadigms of patient, nurse, health, and environment.
- -Two Practice-Specific Concepts: Identification, discussion, and documentation from the literature of your perspective on at least two concepts specific to your own practice.
- -List of Propositions: A numbered list of at least five propositions or assumption statements that clearly connect the concepts described.
Your paper should integrate these discrete elements and reflect your personal nursing philosophy.
