Health Models and Theories in Nursing Practice

Discuss the health belief model, transtheoretical model of behavioral change, social cognitive theory, family systems theory, and family assessment and intervention model.

Search the library for literature. Locate one article related to each selected theory or model. Use only scholarly sources as defined for the NP program: a US-based peer-reviewed journal for clinicians published in the past five years or the latest clinical practice guideline. Prepare an annotated entry for each source. Summarize the article. Describe how the article relates to the chosen theory or model. Reflect on how the article could (or could not) be relevant to future Nurse Practitioner practice.
