Explicate a selected nursing theory or conceptual model from this week’s lesson and assigned readings and explain how you already do or how you would apply the theory/conceptual model to your advanced nursing practice. Identify whether your chosen theory or model falls within the totality or simultaneity paradigm and explain why that view may be preferred in your practice understandings. Finally, explicate in four single statements, how that theory or model has guided and further developed your understanding of each metaparadigm concept. In other words, how does the theory direct your understanding of (a) person, (b) health, (c) environment and (d) nursing?
