Nurses, who are willing to help other coworkers, and patients, are seen as someone who can be trusted. In order to have a good teamwork in the clinical setting, each nurse must get rid of the selfishness less attitude. For example, on the clinical setting, if the nurse does his task on downtime and sees other nurse needs help, he or she has to step up and help the nurse who needs help. This is the kind of approach that shows a nurse is a team
For my first assigned patient, I was unable to watch the birth. However; the nursing staff at SRMC worked very hard to find another individual that wouldn’t mind having a student nurse in the labor and delivery. I was glad, I finally was able to watch a delivery and have a better understanding of the ways the operating room (OR) and OB work together to delivery a baby. Student will discuss in detail the type of delivery the patient had, any medical interventions done, how the patient progressed throughout the labor, the roles of the support person and specific cares and procedures done for newborn directly after delivery and for the hours after delivery. During my OB follow through, I was able observe a caesarean procedure on the patient.

W-6 PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES 1. I chose this competency because as a nurse it is vital to maintain professional boundaries and still be able to provide the therapeutic care without personally getting attached to patients. 2.

Nursing Delegation for the RN Delegation is considered to be among the most involved nursing skills which require a nurse to apply knowledgeable clinical judgment and accountability during patient care. RNs have an obligation to finding what is needed for patients and families and then using the appropriate delegation to staff to help carry out the plan. This helps maximize on achieving the most desired outcomes and also maximize the use of available resources. The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.

Wendy, I agree with you that not only DIKW hierarchy is good for evidence-based practice but most importantly is communicating to our patients. As a nurse, we are not only providing safe care for our patients but educate them through our knowledge and wisdom that we learned from the information through the classes. We communicate with them to prevent further complication or simply help them to maintain good health. DIKW hierarchy definitely is not only for nursing practice but good for our daily lives. Every day we are learning something new either from our practices or simply watching the news.
“School nurses frequently work in isolation and do not have the luxury of consulting a colleague in the hallway, so it is vital that the school health resources are evidence-based and current” (DuChateau, Beversdorf, & Wolff, 2015, p. 175).This could be accomplished by the RN preceptor researching and reading current journal articles. It is very important for practicing RN in any setting to stay abreast of current EBP. “The goals of EBP are to provide better outcomes at lower costs while improving patient (student) experiences and nurses’ experience” (Maughan & Yonkaitis, 2017, p. 288). Secondly, I would recommend that the RN preceptor schedules her day to not only perform tasks as they arrive but, devise a clinical flow plan of what tasks need to be completed first.
