I am able to provide a brief summary of Chapter 4 from Polit and Beck’s (2018) Essentials of Nursing Research. The authors in this chapter discuss the role of theory and research for nursing. The authors describe different theories such as grand theories and middle-range theory, while also explaining how they can be used in nursing. Authors also discuss the theory-development process and give examples that show how different nursing theories were developed through time. The authors also address the role of theory within research.
