  Development of nursing theory, practice, and process. Nursing theory includes the utilization of the principles of therapeutic communication with individuals as consumers of health care; the collaborative role of the nurse as an active member of the health team; the complex physiological principles from homeostasis through resolution in relation to human needs, developmental phases, and the client/nurse relationship; and the interrelationship among physical, safety, and interactional needs. Nursing practice includes the performance with dexterity of basic psychomotor skills and health promotion and maintenance as components of therapeutic nursing care in a variety of settings. Nursing process includes the collection of a broader scope of data and the analysis of multiple types of data for the purpose of arriving at a nursing diagnosis in order to plan, implement, and evaluate nursing care.
