Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


The author in this article presents a midrange theory evaluation framework as an update to nursing publications over the past 50 decades on theory evaluation criteria and incorporates recent philosophical perspectives on scientific theory and knowledge development. The intent also is to encourage a theorizing style that advances understanding and explanations of nursing phenomena for nursing practice as well as for the pure joy of knowing why something happens.
