BASIC PROCESSES IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NURSING THEORIES
CLASSIFICATION OF NURSING THEORIES
This adaptation affects a person's health, psychosocial well-being, and self functioning.
Erikson’s theory guides nursing evaluation of a patients developmental stage in order to apply appropriate, patient specific interventions to the plan of care.
The nurse providing a patient with inpatient care and carefully explaining how each intervention will affect the patients outcome is important to each patient to improve the psychosocial functioning.
Has been the basis for several nursing research studies and for the development of practice guidelines including promoting self-competence in teens and promoting successful aging in the elderly (McEwan & Wills, 2014).
Erikson's psychosocial development theory guide nursing interventions and practice
In order to apply an intervention in a nurse-patient encounter, a nurse must evaluate the patient's want to learn.
Most patients are eager to learn how to care for their illness or situation after their hospital stay.

Synthesis of nursing theory - Ann Mitchell Photography
Successful communication has three major components: a sender, a receiver, and a message (Özkan, Okumuş, Buldukoğlu & Watson, 2013). In nursing practice, we frequently have a great deal of information to send to others in a short period of time. To do this effectively, we need to know that there are factors which could influence how our message is interpreted. We must consider the setting in which the communication occurs, the past experiences and personal perceptions of both the sender and receiver, the timing of the message. Breakdown in communication can cause negative outcomes. We all know how important it is to give a thorough patient report to the oncoming nurse at shift change. In situations where this does not occur and important information is not conveyed, treatments, medications, may be missed.
