I’m studying for my Nursing class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Attached is an example of a previous essay
Using assigned readings and your professional experience as a starting point, answer the following:
1. Consider the signs and symptoms you personally associate with an abstract concept in your daily professional practice(nursing) (e.g., grief, anxiety, fear, pain, etc). How do you know if these are “true” indicators of what the patient is actually experiencing? Provide a supporting rationale.
2. Discuss the role of empirical assessment in confirmation and validation of empiric knowledge in relationship to the abstract concept you identified in #1.
3. Identify and discuss a tool that could be used to empirically assess the abstract concept. In your discussion, state which theory the tool was derived from.
