Introduction Nursing is a profession. Besides caring patients, it also requires management and leadership skills to raise its professional standard. We have been introduced the idea of nursing leadership and management in this course. We were also assessed by doing group interview and presentation on the themes related to nursing leadership and management. The purpose of this reflective journal is to reflect the lessons we learnt during our preparation of the presentation.
Introduction: This assignment will explore the Roper, Logan and Tierney model used in first clinical placement and will explain how it helped to guide nurses to focus on the fundamentals of patient care. Patient dignity is upheld by using this model following the principles outlined in the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives as will be discussed. An outline of the philosophical claims of the nursing model that guides practice on the unit for first clinical placement. : Firstly, the assignment needs to define what is a nursing model. A nursing model is a model made up of metaparadigm concepts involving the person, environment, health and nursing.
Evaluation can take many forms and helps promote quality in education practice (Hughes and Quinn, 2013); it enables nurse educators to ascertain whether their teaching is having a positive impact on patients learning and how (if anything) the steps nurses need to do to improve their evidence-based practice teachings (Ramsden, 2003). As a result, monitoring and evaluating can provide information concerning; the need for modifying the programs, process of implementation and overall program outcomes. This can help support the relevance of the educational pilot program for; empowerment, responsibilities of a nurse educator, leadership, and future research. The consistent use of the assessment of core competencies and questionnaires in nursing education will facilitate the ability to compare nurse educator competencies and the performance of inmates with mental
In the educational curriculum for nursing students, the focus has been to present problem-based learning and evidence-based practice concepts to help increase critical thinking skills. Critical thinking is the foundation in nursing to provide
The theory’s first stage is the attention phase and requires students to pay attention to the skill which is being taught in an environment that is conducive for and provides the necessary condition needed for learning to occur. As the expert nurse educator demonstrates the skill while students’ pay attention by observing what the instructor is demonstrating; this can be seen as role modeling. Therefore, an expert educator demonstrates competently the techniques associated with oral administration of medication; clearly, it is important that student nurses observe this procedure being done. In addition, another important determiner when paying attention has to do with the students’ goals, self-esteem, and competence; all these components are acted upon as each student processes the
This knowledge forms the basis for utilizing the nursing process in the field of practical nursing. Concurrent integration of theory into clinical practice is an important aspect of practical nursing education.practical nursing education prepares the graduate to pass the national council licensure examination (NCLEX) for practical nursing. Practical nursing diploma program graduates prepared to seek entry-level position as members of a healthcare team in hospitals, long-term care facilities, home health, and a variety of other health care
Nurses practice in a variety of clinical contexts depending on their education preparation and practice experience. The Core Competencies are a foundation for nurses to maintain their competence and to acquire additional competencies or
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program focuses on the doctoral degree that influence the direct care of patients, health policy, and healthcare outcomes (Matthews, 2014). The DNP program prepared me for the role of leadership in solving complex clinical problems, interdisciplinary collaboration, health care engineering and systems approaches, as well as new knowledge that results in uniquely qualified providers. I discovered the activities of knowledge, behaviors/attitudes, and skills in the DNP IV while utilizing the Bloom’s Taxonomy to master the competencies of these outcomes (Huitt, 2011). As an educator, I can relate knowledge to future nursing students and utilize evidence-based practice. Billings and Halstead (2012) suggest
Conclusions and implications were formulated with the knowledge that subjects for this study used. This paper provides a description of the education program for nurse practitioners in the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Nursing, widely considered a leader in the discipline. It further reports the results of a study examining the roles and responsibilities of Nurse Practitioners and of the factors that, despite the impediments to progress the practice faces, motivate them to pursue development of their abilities in carrying out their duties and making “a difference.” Nurse Practitioners are proud of being a source of reference for their colleagues and believe strongly professional collaboration while acknowledging and respecting their limitations, by refusing to assume any responsibilities not delegated to nurse practitioners. The conclusions were based on the findings and logically stated. There was a very in-depth research project, particularly for a journal article.
The main purpose of this assignment is to evaluate the effectiveness of bedside handover in nursing for treating patients. Clinical handover practices are considered as significant in the transmission of clinical care between health physicians. It is noticed that when the patient is handed over from one clinician to another, it is important to make sure that continuity of care is maintained because problem in this can give rise to various safety issues. A nursing handover is known as the process in which information related to a patient is exchanged between nurses, which includes transfer of responsibility or control over for the patient. It is noticed that at the start of the shift, the nurses get general report related to the patients, which
