Learning Theories & Principles and Quality Health Care

The advanced practice nurse (APN) can apply a range of learning theories and principles to give patients high-quality care. Behaviorism, cognitivism, social learning theory, cognitive behavioral theory, self-efficacy theory, and constructivism are a few of the most practical theories.

Behaviorism is a learning theory that focuses on the observable behavior of learners. This theory is useful to the APN because it can help identify specific behaviors that need to be changed to improve health outcomes (Merriam, 2018). For example, if a behaviorist approach is used to identify a patient’s smoking behavior, the APN can change that behavior to improve the patient’s health (Merriam, 2018). Cognitivism is a learning theory that focuses on the mental processes of learners. This theory is useful to the APN because it can help to understand how patients learn and remember information. This understanding can then be used to design educational materials and interventions that are more likely to succeed (Merriam, 2018). For example, suppose a cognitivist approach is used to understand how patients learn about a new medication. In that case, the APN can design an educational intervention more likely to teach patients about the medication successfully.

According to the social learning theory, people pick up new skills by watching and copying the actions of others. Given that APNs frequently work one-on-one with clients, this notion is very pertinent to them. The APN can employ social learning theory to help clients learn new skills and model desired behaviors for them (Merriam, 2018). The cognitive behavioral theory posits that people’s thoughts and beliefs influence their behavior. This theory is useful for the APN in providing health care because it can help the APN understand how clients’ thoughts and beliefs may impact their health behaviors. Self-efficacy theory posits that people’s beliefs about their ability to perform a task or behavior influence their performance (Merriam, 2018). This theory is useful for the APN in providing health care because it can help the APN to understand how to motivate and enc
