Both terms are powerful terms and these terms explain the mental processes nurses use to make certain that they are doing their most excellent thinking and decision making for their patient’s better outcomes. Nursing practice requires both critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Critical thinking is the process of deliberate higher level thinking to define a patient’s problem, examine the evidence-based practice in caring for the patient’s, and make options in the delivery of optimal care. Critical thinking involves the demarcation of statements of fact, judgment, and opinion. The progression of critical thinking requires the nurse to think imaginatively, use reflection, and engage in logical thinking (Alfaro-LeFevre, 2013).

Upon using this technique will help the nursing students to prioritize, reason and link the patient symptoms for effective nursing management. It is as a learning strategy developed in the nursing in 1970’s
Nurses got to ensure that patients have the required knowledge and skills before discharge (Collins, 2014). Wagner et al. (1996) had argued that, for chronic conditions patient’s they learned to empower self management by gain knowledge and skill from nurses whom had done the plans for discharge. Lorig et al. (2009) had agreed that, the concept of empowering patient in self management is crucial.
The competent of nurses in clinical setting can be perform encounters their knowing and also requires doing. Evidence of being clinically competent includes of encountering, knowing, performing, maturing and improving (Lejonqvist et al., 2011), the authors explain that encountering, maturing, knowing and performing is referring to clinical competence growth whereas improving is refer to how clinical competence was refined. Thus, it is argued that clinical competence of an individual is shows on the process of an individual informal learning in practice. To integrate of the findings, the authors (ibid, 2011) highlighted two categories of clinical competence which is ontological and contextual clinical competence for implication in nursing education. Ontological clinical competence should be obtained during the education, whereas contextual clinical competence reached after experiencing their practice.
Nursing process provides a framework for clinical decision-making, which helps to guide care and promote critical thinking. Improvements patients participation in care by promoting patient autonomy and individualized care. ADPIE is an acronym that is used to help nurses remember the steps in order: Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. In the assessment phase, nurses collect subjective and objective data about the patient in a systematic way through observations, interview questions, and physical examinations. Data is collected, organized, verified, and recorded.
The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge. Considering doing so, it helps nurses to understand their purpose and role in nursing in the healthcare setting. Henderson believes that the unique function of the nurse is to help the person sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (to a peaceful death) that he would do unaided if he had the strength, will or knowledge. In doing so will help him gain independence as quickly as possible (Burggraf, 2012). The Scope or Level of theory The scope or level of theory used by Henderson was a grand theory.
Maville and Huerta (2013) state that Fawcett’s metaparadigm is often used to define and delineate the scope of nursing. Masters stated the purpose of one’s personal philosophy is to define how he or she finds truth. As a result each individual philosophy purported will be unique. This paper will seek to define, describe and explain my thoughts, feelings and belief regarding the four concepts of nursing metaparadigm and their interrelationship as well as their influence on my current nursing practice. Masters (2017) states that our philosophy is derived from a process of lifelong learning which allows us to find the truth.
Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015). As the assessment begins for Mrs. Adams there are many things that need to be addressed.
Through CPD that professionals development undergo a process of educational activities to maintain and improve nurses competency towards a career goal (Pool 2015). Throughout my own experience in my working life, what I learnt in the theories I applied in the practical. We demonstrated understanding of the concept of CPD as a process of lifelong learning and a platform for nursing to gain new knowledge throughout our working life. I believe that CPD activities have been a pathway among nurse to develop critical thinking and become reflective in our practice due to the new knowledge that improved our self-confidence. In some organisations, for example, in the Ministry of Health, the staff are awarded credit points to meet the department’s key performance indicators (KPI) that can be translated into recognition and salary advancement (Bloom,
Nursing students work as caregivers in clinical areas early in their education. So, EI is required to help them to control their emotions; as inability to control emotions can lead to increase anxiety, stress and negatively affect the quality of care.  Emotion is fundamental to nursing and midwifery practice consequently, EI is considered as an important skill for nurses. It can affect the quality of their work including clinical decision-making, critical thinking, implementation of nursing
Lewis, Stephens, and Ciak (2016) confirmed that the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) initiative was developed to determine competencies for nursing students based upon Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommendations with the main goal of QSEN is to establish a cultural change toward quality and safety. According to QSEN (2014), addresses the challenge of preparing future nurses with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) are essential components of improving the quality and safety of the healthcare systems. Furthermore, the QSEN six competencies for nursing that targets the KSA to guarantee future graduates to develop competencies in patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement,
Then, in another scholarly article, “The Role of The Pediatric Nurse in Promoting Pediatric Right to Consent,” gives specific characteristics that nurses should look for in children to determine how capable they are. Which consist of, “competence, voluntariness, disclosure, recommendation, understanding, decision and authorization” (292). It also proposes that nurses should be able to judge the child’s education level and use it to teach them about their health at a quantity that is appropriate. Which will allows the kid to have more of a say in the circumstances than if the nurse were to talk to him or her at a higher
Therefore, nurses need to led innovations so they can develop models to prove how to access care and improve quality of care. Also, manage nursing clinics. All possible education acquired with basic competency to meet the demands of an aging and diverse society, with an emphasizes on clinical training done in a healthcare facility to go across the life span. Nurse need to expand their scope of practice, with full extent of their knowledge and licensure work with physicians to provide cost effectiveness and the shortage of primary care. Also, with embracing technology by learning the newest medical techniques, this includes schools using a stimulation lab and online courses.
As a result, a comprehensive investigation into the influence of the nurse 's individual level of sedation management knowledge needs to be uncovered to promote recommended practices. Research Question Appraisal Why are patients over sedated? Are there tools in place to help monitor a patient 's tolerance and response to sedation?

Nursing educator competency 6 as of ‘Pursue Continuous Quality Improvement in the Nurse Educator Role’ reveals certain qualities development and implementation, to enhance nursing education and practice. The educator involved in identifying the needs and activities changes for improvement through further educational practices which propels the nurses to engage in lifelong learning (www.nln.org, nd). Effectiveness of educator role demands the recognition and support from the nurses, nursing faculties and other nursing leaders for participating in research and thereby, the elements of evidence-based practice established. This continuous process of learning occurs in the educator by integrating self-actualization, and fostering knowledge of previous experience into the innovation with help of mentors and supports of faculty colleagues (www.nln.org, nd). My practicum in the clinical teaching for new grads on orientation and clinical nurses for
