    1. Provide a succinct overview of the model you have selected and discuss how the selected model addresses the four concepts within the nursing metaparadigm (person, health, nursing, environment).

    3. Describe how the chosen model can be applied in the future APN role (education, executive, family nurse practitioner, healthcare policy, or nursing informatics).


Application of Theory

Nursing theories influence nursing practice in many ways. These theories are implemented within the nursing practice to provide solutions to nursing concerns and are often used in educational and research settings, direct patient-care situations, and administration and management of healthcare services (Ross, Tod, & Clarke, 2015). This paper seeks to evaluate Person-Centered-Nursing (PCN) theory in regards to how it addresses the nursing concepts within metaparadigm, how it qualifies to be a theoretical framework and its use in the nursing profession as well as its applicability the future APN practice role.

Overview of the PCN Model and It Addresses the Concepts of Nursing

The PCN framework is of a complex nature and has various meanings which all take into cognizance provision of best and quality patient care (Radwin, Castonguay, Keenan, & Hermann, 2016). PCN framework was developed by McCormack and McCance in 2006, and was later revised in 2010 to deliver more presentations to nursing practice across complex and diverse healthcare delivery systems (McCormack & McCance, 2016).
