5. Expert
Beginner with no experience
Taught general rules to help perform tasks
Ex: "Tell me what I need to do and I will do it"
No longer relies on principles, rules, or guidelines to connect situations and determine actions
Much more background of experience
Has intuitive grasp of clinical experiences
Performance is now fluid, flexible, and highly proficient
Significance of Theory
This theory changed the professions understanding of what it means to be an expert
Each step builds on the previous one as abstract principles are refined and expanded by experience and the learner gains clinical expertise
It recognized that nursing was poorly served by the paradigm that called for all the nursing theory to be developed by researchers and scholars, but rather introduced the revolutionary notion that the practice itself could and should inform theory
