Evaluate the application of models of practice to the advanced nurse roles.

This Assignment targets this course outcome:

MN502-3: Evaluate the application of models of practice to the advanced nurse roles.

What is the difference between a model and a theory?

A model demonstrates the researcher’s interpretation of how concepts are related to one another and is developed based on qualitative research. A theory is a hypothesis tested and measured to explain, predict, describe, and prescribe relationships between concepts and is developed through quantitative research.

In short, the difference between a model and a theory is the amount of proof that exists in demonstrating the outcomes they predict.

What do models and theories have in common?

Both models and theories show relationships between concepts. Models often are precursors to theory development.
