Nurses are not just competent in a certain area, but they are all areas in the health care setting and outside of it as well. Nurses are the heroes when it comes down to taking care of patients. They are always passionate about doing what is best for their patients and what can make them become free of their disease or condition that they are in. Nurses are patients advocates, main source for information, care givers, and so many more. They are the ones who protect their patients from anything that goes on.
Professional distance means the space a professional must keep between him/her and the person they are working with. By keeping this space, a professional can fulfil their professional and personal obligations without invading their client’s space and vice versa. I also believe that “professional distance” pertains to keeping focus on the job while emphasizing that problems that arise are driven only by conflicts about a patient’s care not by personal conflicts. (Manos and Braun 2006) defined difficult patient as one whose behavior is an obstacle to the provision of good nursing care. Nurses always come in contact with these type of patients on a regular basic.
They trust each other, they go to each other for comfort and advice, and the nurse and Juliet care about each other because they have a strong healthy relationship. Juliet and the nurse can tell each other some of their most important secrets. If one of them is upset or worried about something, they know that the other person will comfort them. The two of them also care and worry whether or not the other person is feeling ok. Even though Juliet kills herself the memory of Juliet and their relationship will always be stuck in the nurse’s heart.

She shows that a little care can go much further than hate ever will. Her caring self can be seen when she is dealing with someone difficult, helping a person even if it is out of her way, or even just listening when a person needs to talk. This characteristic extends to residents and even coworkers because when they see their leader always stay compassionate, they cannot help but do the same. Her positive attitude is contagious to every single person she
We respected it and I let them signed the refusal of treatment form and documented it in the patient’s chart. Despite our diversities and differences in terms of religion and belief, I didn’t judged their decision of refusing a life-saving treatment but rather I considered and respected it as I understand that culture is very important aspect of our lives. (C.#77). (C.#113a – Leadership) (C. #81) I knew that as a nurse I should be a pro-life, that my main function is to promote health, prolong and save life but I also kept in my mind that I should be a patient advocate to their wishes and rights. So to help the patient, the doctor just ordered Erythropoietin to promote formation of red blood cells, so, I administered it as prescribed and I gave my health teachings and encouraged to eat foods that are rich in iron and also Vitamin C which promotes iron absorption.
I hold myself to a high standard, I would not expect anyone to do anything that I would not do myself, and I think this is a typical Generation X behavior. I have a hard time dealing with someone if they feel they are superior or are owed certain perks. As I grow into this role, I earn respect by being genuine and honest. The direct contact between nurses and their manager plays an instrumental role in creating a positive work climate and retaining nurses (Farag et al.,
The nurse who was by my side the entire time was compassionate, sympathetic, and courageous. Personally, I believe nursing is a gratifying career. The field grants an individual to be emotionally and financially satisfied. Specifically, it will allow to me reach my goal of helping others and making a difference in someone’s life. The ability to interact with people from different cultures and races, interests me.
Thank you very much for your post. I also agree with you that both ANA and AMA has same goal of providing qualitative, affordable, and best care to the public and promote their health and well-being. As you mentioned that AMA has a strong opinion of providing care by a physician –led team, however I believe that both physician and nurse practitioners and even physician assistant can work collaboratively as a team to accomplish the common goal. The AMA should not really be threatened by the advanced practice nurses because we are not here to replace or take away their position. I feel that the AMA is still worried about losing their authoritative position.
