As a group, select two nursing theorists with different views about theory; for example, Johnson and Orem or Watson and Rogers. You may select any two theorists of your choice. Then answer the questions below in the discussion area. Select one member of the group to post the discussion assignment; include all group member names at the top of the post.
1. Provide an overview of each theorist’s theory.
2. Compare areas of similarity and areas of greatest difference between the theorists.
3. Compare the impact that each theorist/theory has had on nursing.
4. If someone in your group was injured or sick, which of the two theorists would your group choose to care for you and why?
5. Identify two questions that your group would ask each of the theorists (a total of four questions), if you were able to meet them (avoid questions that elicit simple, yes or no answers).
