First, have you checked the Theory page of our Nursing subject guide? It was designed to help you with this assignment.
Nursing students are often asked to research a nursing theoretical framework. Sometimes it helps to know what theoretical frameworks are out there. The University of San Diego's Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science maintains a list of nursing theories and nursing models here: http://www.sandiego.edu/nursing/research/nursing_theory_research.php/.
Once you know the theory or model you are interested in, it helps to keyword search by the name of the theory and/or the person who came up with it. For example, you could go into the CINAHL database and search "jean watson" OR "caring theory".
Here is some information about how to keyword search: http://subjectguides.esc.edu/researchskillstutorial/conceptchart and http://subjectguides.esc.edu/researchskillstutorial/boolean.
