Her journal goes into thorough details of her developed theory as well as how it is used in the nursing process, the influence and research that led her to this development as well as how critically important it is to establish a nurse-patient relationship.

Part A As part of my studies of the Perspectives on nursing module I have been assigned to examine dignity as a value which underpins nursing practice. Dignity is a multi-faceted concept and can be defined as ‘’ The state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect’ (https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/dignity, 2015)’. Respect for the dignity of the person is the number one principle of the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives (NMBI, 2014). Also, this principle notably finds its origins in the Universal Declaration of human rights (United Nations, 1948) (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, 2014). Throughout this piece I will emphasize how this principle interacts with nursing
However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
Introduction Nursing models and theories provide guidance to nurses and it gives a rationale for various nursing interventions (Hood, 2018). The Growth Model of Change helps people to realize their full potential. In the nursing practice, the growth model of change is used as the framework, which encompasses the caring theory or complexity theory (Hood, 2018). In this paper, I will focus on the Jean Watson’s Human Caring Science Theory and how it plays a major role in nursing care. Caring helps influence the ways in which people think, feel, and behave in relation to one another (Ozan, Okumus, & Lash, 2015).
Narrative therapy focuses on helping patients reframe their narratives and relate to life events in a meaningful way (p.662). The researchers used two different empirically supported tests to determine the efficacy of the treatments. One was the Becks Inventory scale which measured the depressive symptoms and the other was the outcome questionnaire which measured the interpersonal symptoms. (p.664). With the same conditions present for both treatments the groups that completed all the 20 CBT and NT sessions showed no difference in efficacy between the treatments.
Introduction Nursing knowledge developed from the period of Florence Nightingale until now through the development of nursing theories, philosophies and knowledge base practices. Nursing has a distinctive knowledge base and therefore it can be considered as a profession. As a profession nursing has a social responsibility to provide a knowledge base practice.,McCurry,Revell and roy((2009) Each discipline is having its own body of knowledge, Smith and McCarthy(2010).The term ontology has been used by Watson, who refers to ontology as the creative work in nursing that reflects caring and healing .Caring is the foundation of Ontological nursing. Watson (1999). As per the ontology of nursing discipline Nurse patient relationship is the core of discipline.
It is based on information from the nursing health history and physical assessment. Goals are mutually set with the client and family, and the nursing care plan is evaluated and modified according to the client’s needs. Testing the criteria: criteria must be valid and reliable.
