Address the following for your first discussion post using the readings from McEwen and Wills (2014) chapter 19: application of theory in nursing research:
Conduct a library search for a peer-reviewed journal article that combines theory and research in nursing. (I’m looking for a research study that uses a nursing theory rather than an editorial.)
Discuss how nursing theory was integrated into the paper as well as the benefits of nursing theory in nursing research. (Please include the article as an attachment to your initial discussion post.)
In nursing, discuss the link between theory and research.
Make sure to include personal and professional experiences in your conversation.
