Question description

The assigned readings from the articles this week discuss methods of concept analysis that are useful in nursing. Select a concept you will analyze in this course. Your concept needs to interest you, possibly associated with your current or future work or something that intrigues or even bothers you. Try to avoid selecting a concept that is too broad or too narrow [see the unit overview for a discussion of broad or narrow concepts]. Explain the following:

Name of the concept of interest

Why you selected it

What you hope to discover or learn from the concept analysis

What the concept means to you currently [prior to any literature review]

Why the concept is of interest to the nursing profession
