1. Compare and contrast a nursing theory, conceptual framework, and model. How might these three ways of thinking abstractly fit together?
2. How is a road map like a framework or model?
3. You are having coffee with a fellow student or colleague who thinks that theory, frameworks, and models are a waste of time and have nothing to do with practical nursing care. How might you argue that they can help you in daily nursing practice?
4. Can you imagine different situations or contexts in which one model may fit better and another in which you might adapt another model? Explain.
