Address the following for your initial discussion post using the readings from McEwen and Wills (2014) chapter 19: application of theory in nursing research:

Conduct a search in the library for a peer-reviewed journal article that combines nursing theory and research. (I’m looking for a research study that employs a nursing theory rather than an editorial-style article.)
Discuss how the nursing theory was integrated into the article, as well as the benefits of nursing theory in nursing research. (Please include the article in your first discussion post.)
Discuss the relationship between nursing theory and research.
Make sure to include personal and professional experiences in your discussion.
Responses must address all aspects of the question, show critical thinking and analysis, and include peer-reviewed journal evidence to back up the student’s position.

Please include citations and references in APA format to back up your thoughts and opinions.
This topic is worth 40 points. Please go over the rubric again to ensure that your response meets the requirements.
