Discuss how a specific middle-range nursing theory has been or could be applied by nurse leaders or nurse managers to effectively deal with an administrative issue (i.e., staffing, use of supplies, staff performance issues). Include an example from the literature or your own experience to illustrate your points.
In the second thread for this week we will be discussing how we can use theory to address administrative issues in the workplace. Use of theory by a knowledgeable nurse in an administrative position will increase professional power in influencing others. In addition, theory increases professional autonomy in structuring practice.
