Abstract

Objective: To know the tendencies of the publications about nursing theories, theoretical models and related concepts in a scientific journal of nursing.


Methods: An integrative review was performed on the website of the journal Acta Paulista de Enfermagem, via SCIELO, from 2005 to 2014. The sample included 21 studies that addressed the application, analysis, construction, validation or reflection on concepts, theoretical models and nursing theories.


Results: Of the publications, 42.8% came from the Northeast region and 76.2% contemplated the qualitative approach. The studies worked with theories (76.2%), with analysis, construction and validation of theoretical models (14.3%), and concept elaboration (9.5%). 2005 and 2011 represented the years with the largest publications, however a decrease has occurred in the last three years.


Conclusion: The trends highlighted the importance of the development and application of the theoretical and philosophical bases of nursing, since it is necessary to strengthen the link between theoretical and practical research.
