Child development theories, educational theories, ethical theories all provide information that support communication and patient care. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and Lewin’s theory of planned change reinforce a relationship between nursing and other disciplines. Non-nursing and nursing theories can work together to inform and guide nursing practice, education, and research.

Choose a theory from one of the following disciplines of behavioral, leadership, business, education, and or technology. Describe the theory and assess its value to professional nursing practice.
