As an integral part of the healthcare team, nursing has evolved tremendously. In Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies a picture was painted of what the future of nursing looks like. From my own opinion I do feel that a reform or evolution in nursing education is required to create competent nurses of the future. Current nursing school programs are academic heavy with an emphasis on skills. While growing competency in clinical skills is necessary, there is much more to the future of nursing than being highly skilled. It is time to distinguish not just skills, but characteristics of a successful nurse of the future. This is a nurse who will be well rounded with the tools and resources to help guide healthcare and the patient experience
Summary/Analysis: This amended bill, AB-2024 Cortical access hospitals: employment, would call for a federally certified CAH (Critical Access Hospital) to employ licensees and charge for professional services rendered by those licensees until 2024. In that period of time, the Medical Board of California (MBC) will provide a report to the California Legislature on the impact of authorizing CAHs (Critical Access Hospital) to employ physicians and the CAH (Critical Access Hospital) shall not interfere with, control, or otherwise direct the professional judgment of a physician and surgeon.
The concept of “professionalism in healthcare careers” in my own words mean living up to the standards, and the values that are set forth by the faculty that you are working for. This means making sure the community looks good as well. The concept of “professionalism” extends from not only doing your job, but going above and beyond that for your patients or coworkers. Making sure that you are aware of the repercussions of each of your actions, and how they affect not only you but the people around you. For example, nurse have an oath that must uphold but their patient care extends from not only a nurse but to a line for support for their patients.
These APPE sites expose students to innovative healthcare delivery systems and treatment protocols. The majority of the sites are located in various areas of California, representing various segments of the general society, including medically underserved areas. Throughout the APPE curriculum, students will be exposed to diverse patient populations. Students will be expected to deliver evidence-based care to patients of diverse cultural, economic, geographic, and/or disease state-related backgrounds. Most APPE rotations will have a focus on interprofessional interaction and practice.

A partial hospitalization program is one of the treatment options that people have for substance abuse. Partial hospitalization is a type of outpatient treatment. A person who is completing a partial hospitalization program will spend several hours at a treatment center every week, but he or she will be allowed to reside at home.
Professionalism is the skill set that society expects from a professional. For a nurse, professionalism is not merely knowing how to take someone’s temperature or how to administer medication. It goes beyond that and consists, not only of job competence, but also includes personal and ethical dimensions. Professionalism requires job knowledge, accountability, advocacy, communication, and ethical decision making.
The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) allows nurses with a Multistate Licensure to practice physically, telephonically or electronically in their home state and other original NLC states (Original NLC,2018). With the Multistate Licensure Compact nurses are able to provide care to patients in other NLC states without having to obtain additional licenses (ENLC Implementation, 2018).
Ethical issues can impact the health care system in a variety of ways. The APN is expected to provide excellent regardless of the work environment. One issue that continues to influence the entire nursing profession is staffing inadequacies. “Without sufficient staffing it is difficult to meet ethical standards of professional practice responsibilities, including protecting the rights of individual patients and families, alleviation of suffering, and preserving their integrity”(Ulrich et al., 2010, p. 1).
I tried to justify my interprofessional capability level by using the self-assessment tool of Interprofessional capability, including four domains: Collaborative Working, Reflection, Cultural Awareness & Ethical Practice and Organisational Competence. I have scored myself high on organisational competence. But I achieved lower scores on the other aspects due to lack of practice experiences. Related to my previous nursing practice as an adult student nurse in the hospital I have enhanced my interprofessional capability through practice combined with the theory of interprofessional studies. Now I explore more on collaborative working, reflection and cultural awareness and ethical practice throughout my previous relevant experience of nursing
Providing care for hospitalized patients can be both stressful and demanding. Nurses often find themselves overwhelmed with the number of tasks they are expected to complete. Due to the large amount of patient care tasks, many nurses forget to implement orders or educate patients on important prophylactic treatments. All hospitalized patients are at an increased risk of developing a venous thromboembolism, no matter the reason for their hospitalization (The American Heart Association, 2017). Venous thromboembolisms pose great risks and are a substantial source of morbidity and mortality to hospitalized patients. Although most venous thromboembolisms are considered preventable, the use of prophylactic treatment is underused in hospitals (National
Nursing has come a long way from being the hand maidens of the physician to having control over nursing knowledge and practice. It now has two essential ingredients of accountability and autonomy. There is more demand from the nurses now than in the past when all they were expected to do was just to provide comfort and care. They were just meant to assist the physician during treatment, assist in the patients personal hygiene administer medication that is prescribed by the physician and dress wounds. These were just things that any woman could do. Nursing demands much more now as they are educators, client advocate, and managers. More so it is a requisite for any field of endeavour to attain professional status, it is actually an attribute of a profession.
