Using the readings from McEwen and Wills (2014) chapter 19: application of theory in nursing research, address the following for your initial discussion post:

Complete a library search for a peer-reviewed journal article that integrates nursing theory and research.
Present the article and discuss the nursing theory used, as well as the benefits of nursing theory in nursing research.
Discuss the relationship between theory and research in nursing.
Be sure to supplement your discussion with personal and professional experiences.

Responses need to address all components of the question, demonstrate critical thinking and analysis, and include peer reviewed journal evidence to support the student’s position.
