Instructions: Using the same Nursing Theory as Module 3, complete an evaluation of the theory you select as it applies to contemporary nursing. Use the following questions as subheadings; use narrative writing, and follow APA writing guidelines, including acknowledgement of sources. For each question determine if this was a strength or weakness of the theory. You must have a title page and a reference page. The evaluation outline is adapted from the Synthesized Method for Theory Evaluation, McEwen & Wills (2014), p.108. Do not answer with “yes” or “no” responses.
Support your responses with a minimum of 3 (three) references. You may use the course textbook as one of your references, as applicable.
you must check your assignment within one hour after submission. If the assignment is blank or incorrect you must email your coach within that one hour or you will receive a zero on the assignment.

I was disappointed in the overall grades for the assignments this week. Several of you did not use APA to format your papers nor use the example provided at the beginning of the course. The students that did use those resources received high grades because they were able to meet the criteria of the assignment.
For week 4, make sure you use APA for your papers. Address the strengths and weaknesses of each question. The example provided demonstrates how the paper should be set up with headings.
Read the comments on your papers. If you did not format your paper at all I only wrote on the paper not in APA.
Make sure the references you are using are peer reviewed and within 5 years unless it is a classic. The most common peer reviewed resources are books and journals. Websites are not peer reviewed, especially websites. Slideshare is not a peer reviewed source. Stay with books and journals for your references.
