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,
You must be able to fully understand your own values and beliefs to be able to understand others. This is so important as a nurse because you will deal with a lot of clients who either disagree with your decisions or you will disagree with the choices they make regarding their care. Another important concept in my opinion is Human Relationships: Interpersonal skills and group dynamics. A big part of this subject is communication, communication in my opinion is one of the most important forms of client care because it includes so many different forms including client communication, communication with family, communication with co-workers and when you are doing public health teaching. Through the many forms you can understand more thoroughly the patient’s needs.
Nursing research is defined as the systematic, rigorous, critical investigation that aims to answer questions about nursing phenomena (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014). These two terms are similar but have very different guidelines. Research applies a qualitative or quantitative
The application of theoretic knowledge has to be well structured during nursing care. According to the self-care deficit theory of nursing, attaining the individual therapeutic self-care demand and maintaining the patient self-care agencies are the required result. (Smith 2012). 3.1 Assumption and assertion of the theory The assumption relating to this theory were devised in the early 1970s. Orem in 2001, highlight five fundamental nursing law (Smith 2012) and these include; 1.
Thus, critical thinking is something that is self-regulatory and purposeful judgment, a reflective, reasoning an interactive method for making judgment regarding what to do or believe in. from nursing perspective, critical thinking is the cognitive engine which drives the critical judgment and knowledge development in nursing (Meunier, 2003). The experimental model for reflective decision making is mainly grounded and matched from holistic clinical contexts and holistic patient centered care where it is delivered. This needs nurses to apply wide range of practical, observational, emotional and interpersonal skills, that is not restricted to scientific research and theory whereas applicable to patient care. Such holistic observation of reflective decision making is often supported from multiple intelligence theory (Gardner, 1987), that mainly identified spatial-visual, linguistic, logical-mathematical, intrapersonal and interpersonal forms, bodily-kinesthetic and musical-auditory intelligence forms completing wide range of skills.
ABSRACT Clinical practice guideline having much importance to improve the patient care outcomes and safety from complications.

Nursing, perhaps more than any other health care profession, claims caring as fundamental to its practice. Professional vigilance is the essence of caring in nursing. This article uses historical and theoretical bases to define professional vigilance and discuss its components. Two types of nursing diagnoses, central and surveillance, are proposed. Central diagnoses indicate the need for the nurse to plan and implement interventions for the achievement of outcomes.
Therefore, I considered that it is necessary to clarify the appropriate way of nursing records in order to use them effectively. Our ultimate goal is to clarify the current situation of nurses' electronic health records from the three perspectives of nursing practice, education, and research in order to develop an application model of nursing records more effectively. This application model is intended not just to show the recorded content for improving the content of nursing records but to visualize the appropriate way of nursing records in order to use them for the practice, education, and research of nursing. As the first step, this research aimed to examine how to put nursing records in electronic health recording system for clarifying problems through the analysis of the appropriate way of recording nursing process. In this presentation I am going to talk about the content of inputted information and the tasks for its use about nursing diagnosis and plans through the assessment of nursing
In the construction of this essay the writer will read and research the appropriate literature, exemplifying how they understand certain barriers that effect nursing research. Burns and Grove (2010) defined nursing research as being concerned with knowledge that directly and indirectly influences clinical nursing practice. Research is vital in nursing for a number of reasons. According to Maguire (2014) nurses need to be able to account for their actions and show credibility for their performance. They need to show what they do is ethical and is of use in their profession.
Nursing practice mostly is based on nursing theories which makes the nursing discipline a profession. The nursing theories have differentiates focus of nursing from other profession. Nursing theories provide direction and guidance for structuring professional nursing practice, education and research. Besides, nursing theories serve to guide on assessment, intervention and evaluation of nursing care in order to provide effective decision making and implementation quality of nursing care. Hence, I would like to implement Dorothea Orem’s self-care theory in my clinical area of practice.
