What are the differences between the 4 Levels of Nursing Theory

  1. 0
    Okay, so I'm supposed to read this PDF file for a class as an intro to nursing theory. And I'm not really getting past the arcane jargon here.

    So for instance, it lists 4 levels of nursing theory:

    1) Metatheory
    2) Grand Nursing Theory
    3) Middle-Range Theory
    4) Practice Theory

    The written definitions here look like gobbledygook
    Can someone explain the differences between these 4 levels, in layman's terms?

    (Btw, Wikipedia is down due to the SOPA protests)

    tell you what, you give us the definitions they gave you and we'll help you make sense of them. might also help you with more jargon down the road... there's a lot of jargon in any profession, and nursing is not different from, oh, architecture in that regard.
