For example, if you choose Rodgers’ model, you could take the following into account for the

structure of the essay:
– Identify and name the concept of interest. E.g. Compassion
– Provide a definition of the concept: use both dictionary definitions and definitions from nursing

literature.
– Identify and discuss surrogate terms and relevant uses of the concept ( the main focus must be on

the use of the concept in nursing)
– Identify and discuss the literature you used and explain your search strategy.
– Identify and discuss the attributes of the concept.
– Identify and discus antecedents and consequences of the concept. E.g. if you discuss antecedent

of the concept of compassion, you should discuss what needs to occur before compassion is

developed.
– Identify and discuss concepts that are related to your concept and discuss how these impact on

your chosen concept.
– Identify and discuss a model case of the concept – try not to use too much of your word count on

this section as you may run the risk of writing an anecdotal case study otherwise

Your essay should also make close links between your concept and nursing theory and nursing

guidelines/policies.
