It can be considered as an option for certain cases but other more effective measures should be considered to tackle the problem regarding the aggressive behaviours of prison inmates. The patient (the prisoner) should have a say in whether or not he/she wants to take the medication or choose to participate in other rehabilitation methods such as counselling.

The mental health status of a patient is very important when you are dealing with drug abuse and suicidality. Knowing if there is co-morbidity in the diagnosis will help determine the best treatment plan for the patient. However, not all hospitals are required to run mental health screening on their patients.

APN Role and Leadership Competencies Julliet A. Thomas Grantham University Abstract There are many different aspects of Advance Practice Nursing (APN) make that make the nursing profession unique and valuable. The competencies that comprise each advanced practice nursing discipline are vital in creating a solid foundation for clinical nursing. They prepare you to conquer challenges in the clinical setting and cultivate innovation to establish processes for clinical practice. Advance Practice Nursing is recognized as 4 nursing roles: Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), the Certified Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and the Nurse Practitioner (NP). While the main focus of APNs is clinical practice and direct patient care,
According to Lampe (2013) a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a graduate prepared advanced practice nurse that provides expert clinical care in a specialty population and practice in a variety of settings. Generally speaking their practice is specialized in a clinical area that can be identified in terms of: population, setting, disease or medical subspecialty, type of care, or type of problem. The main difference between a CNS and NP is that the CNS practices in a specialty population, and the NP can treat a larger population. Rules and regulations vary for CNS depending on the state in which they choose to practice. Rights for prescribing medications to patient range from independent prescribing authority to no prescribing authority.
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.

The clinical nurse leader covers a broad spectrum of responsibilities, and is intended to facilitate cohesiveness of patient care between various departments. However, there tends to be some misunderstanding of the role amongst the general public. On one hand, the clinical nurse leader may be viewed as an authoritative position, serving in a supervisor role. In contrast, others view the clinical nurse leader role as that of a floor nurse, who possesses a higher level of education and skill set, able to “apply system-level thinking” (Baernholdt and Cottingham 2011). Rankin (2015) compares the role of the clinical nurse leader in the nursing profession to that of an attending physician with resident physicians.
1. The metaparadigm of nursing illustrates the collective worldview of the shared concepts of the discipline, which are: the person, environment, health and nursing (1). The nursing metaparadigm is the framework for many nursing theories, values, and theoretical models, which help guide an advanced practice nurse in selecting appropriate interventions established by their chosen conceptual model. A conceptual model or advanced practice nursing theory provides an advanced practice nurse a logical structural model to follow, which is aligned with the discipline’s expectations. Advanced education prepares advanced practice nurses to employ a superior degree of clinical, research based and theoretical knowledge (2).
