Situation Specific Theories: Development, Utilization, and Evaluation in Nursing
«<p>“Nursing students at all levels of nursing education, clinicians, nurse educators, and researchers are the intended audience. … The book is unique in that it offers a breath of fresh air in new nursing theory development. Its attention to the human experience is especially salient and appreciated as some nursing theories seem to depart from lived experience. I look forward to reading future editions of this important and groundbreaking work in nursing theory development.” (Martha Scheckel, Doody's Book Reviews, July 9, 2021)</p>»

Throughout nursing history, nursing theories have evolved within the contexts of changing and emerging theoretical needs of nursing discipline. Subsequently, several different types of nursing theories have been proposed, developed, and used in nursing education, research, and practice. Situation specific theories could be easily adopted and used in nursing practice and research due to their foci on specific populations or particular fields. Since situation specific theories were firstly proposed in 1990s, they became a major part of nursing theories in the past two decades, making this book appeals to all levels of nursing students.
