A model demonstrates the theoristâ€™s interpretation of how concepts are related to one another and are developed. Models are frequently illustrated with a graphical representation. Theoretical statements, the characteristics of the model, are used as precursors to more specific theory development. Nursing may utilize theoretical models from a variety of other disciplines such as from sociology, business, organizational leadership, biomedicine, or education.
