Next, the concept model that has helped to mold my thinking as a nurse, is that of Betty Neuman. “The Neuman System Model proposes that the client is a system in constant interaction with intra-, inter-, and/or extra-personal phenomena” (Skalski, DiGerolamo, & Gigliotti, 2006, p. 70). The phenomena is stress. The model shows how stress effects the individual, both internal and external factors. By understanding how these factors affect the patient I am able to care for the patient better.
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.
Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997). At the nursing home, I witnessed many of the nurses discuss with the residents what they wanted to do about certain situations. Autonomy honors the fact that it is the patient and the families right to make certain decisions about health care. Nurses also are constantly making sure that they can provide their patients with the best information to help them make a more successful choice about their health care (Taylor
This stage is demonstrated by the nurses who have generally worked in a clinical environment for four to five years. The proficient nurses learn from experience what typical events to expect in a given situation and understand the manner in which plans need to be modified in response to these events. They usually continue to refine their reading of particular situations. Stage Five-Expert At the expert level, nurses with their extensive background of experience has an intuitive grasp of situation which no longer relies on analytical principle (rule, guideline). The expert nurses have worked in a clinical environment for over five years.
As a nurse, I strive to make the core competencies a part of my daily practice. Nurses utilize evidence-based nursing knowledge and professional nursing judgement to assess health needs, provide nursing care, educate clients and support individuals to manage their health holistically. They practice in collaboration with other healthcare professionals. They are accountable for their scope of practice including the supervision and delegation of nursing activities to the enrolled nurses and nursing assistants. Nurses practice in a variety of clinical contexts depending on their education preparation and practice experience.
They also have to advocate for patient's and support them through their difficult times and with they are improving their health. Professional nurses teach patient's how to manage their health. According to our textbook, The ANA states that “ practice of nursing is based on societies that knows their rights and responsibilities”. In which nurses derive their skill
If you look out for the wellbeing of you patient and express what is best for your patient then you are actively practicing the value of altruism in the field of nursing. Next, the professional value of autonomy. Autonomy is the personal value of one over themselves, free form control of others (96). An autonomous person is one who acts intentionally, with understanding and without the influences of others opinions on them. As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off.

They are well trained and most communicate well and be able to instruct and teach the patient what care is needed after they are discharged. It is important that the nurse be genuine and compassionate to have a successful relationship with the patient. Conclusion These four concepts help the nursing profession to fully impact the patient and encourage a honest relationship and recovery. As a nurse we can make patients feel that we care about them, their health and wellbeing. We can empower them to manage their own health if we can incorporate all of these components into their care.
