I need help in writing my concept analysis theory paper. This week I’m working every day and need help. I’m taking course NR501 at Chamberlain College of Nursing. The paper should be 8-10 pages long with at least 6 scholarly sources from 5 years or less. The pages do not include the title and reference pages. The paper needs to be in APA format. The concept analysis I have chosen is self-care by Dorthea Orem’s Theory. I have attached the guidelines and rubric for this assignment.

Description of the Assignment
This assignment presents a modified method for conducting a concept analysis of ONE concept found in a
nursing theory. The source of the concept for this assignment must be a published nursing theory. The
selected concept is identified and then the elements of the analysis process are applied in order to
synthesize knowledge for application within the model and alternative cases. Non-nursing theories may
NOT be used. The paper concludes with a synthesis of the student’s new knowledge about the concept. The
scholarly literature is incorporated throughout the analysis.
Only the elements identified in this assignment should be used for this concept analysis.
