The book Nursing Theorists and Their Work is written by Martha Raile Alligood. This text presents the works of nursing theorists from around the world, including works by international theorists that have been translated into English. Nursing Theorists and their work has also been translated into numerous languages for nursing educators and students in other parts of the world, as well as for practicing nurses.
Nurses and students at all stages of their education are interested in learning about nursing theory and the use of nursing theory works from around the world. Those just beginning their nursing education, such as associate and bachelor’s degree students, will be interested in concepts, definitions, and theoretical claims. Graduate students, at the master’s and doctoral levels, will be more interested in logical form, acceptance by the nursing community, theoretical sources for theory development, and the use of empirical data. Extensive references and bibliographies are particularly helpful for graduate students to locate primary and secondary sources that augment the theorist’s specific websites.
