Nursing models and theories provide a foundation for evidence-based practice and help guide research. By providing an organized, standardized way of thinking about nursing practice, these models and theories can be used to develop interventions, evaluate outcomes, and assess effectiveness in the clinical setting. They also provide a framework for educating healthcare professionals on how to care for patients in an efficient and compassionate manner. Furthermore, nursing models can be used to identify gaps in existing knowledge that could be addressed through further research or new studies. Finally, they provide guidance when developing patient care plans by highlighting important elements of the process that should not be overlooked or forgotten.
