(Answered) NR501NP Week 3: Concept Analysis -Assignment


NR501NP Theoretical Basis for Advanced Nursing Practice


This assignment presents a modified method for conducting a concept analysis of one concept that is important and useful to the nurse practitioner’s role.  The concept for this assignment must be supported by a published nursing theory. The selected concept is identified, and then the elements of the analysis process are applied in order to synthesize knowledge for application, as demonstrated through the creation of a model case. Theoretical applications of the concept are also discussed. Non-nursing theories may not be used. Scholarly literature is incorporated throughout the analysis.

Only the elements identified in this assignment should be used for this concept analysis.

Possible Concepts: The following concepts are not required; students may select one of these concepts or find another concept. Each selected concept must be associated with a nursing theory; the use of non-nursing theories is not allowed. If you have any questions regarding your concept or the nursing theory, please consult with your faculty member for assistance. Please note: the concepts of caring, burnout, or cultural humility are not permitted for this assignment.

Definition/Explanation of the selected nursing concept:

Although compassion is a challenging concept to quantity, measure, or describe, Babaei and Taleghani (2019) suggest that it is an immeasurable and critical element between patients and therapists. Compassion comes as a strong bond of connection and sensitivity toward the suffering of others; nursing literature provides that it is a vital skill for both patients and care providers. Through compassion, we have the desire to ease the pain and suffering of others and be empathetic regarding their plight.

Compassion is manifested in pity, kindness, care, empathy, and sympathy. At times, compassion and empathy are used interchangeably, whereas the latter is the ability to understand other people’s feelings. While compassion invokes a desire to take action on emotions, empathy does not involve action; rather ends in emotions (Babaei & Taleghani, 2019).…….please click the icon below to purchase full answer at $15
