Creating a Concept Map 8110
This Assignment, due by Day 7 of Week 5, provides an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the conceptual components of a theory. Building on this weeks Discussion, you will build a concept map to express the linkages and interrelationships of the concepts in the middle range theory you have selected. To prepare: 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 weeks Discussion. What relational statements could be articulated? By Day 7 of Week 5 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. Include references from the literature to support your work. additional resource Panniers, T. L., Feuerbach, R. D., & Soeken, K. L. (2003).
