Introduction An introduction to the handbook includes: data about the district, a rationale that explains why we are engaged in the work of cultural proficiency, and a theory of action that will guide the rest of the rationale by using the growth mindset model. II. The Components of Cultural Proficiency A description of the framework of Cultural Proficiency as adapted by DMPS is divided into four parts: The Guiding Principles, The Continuum, The Barriers, and The Essential Elements. Included in each description of the components are practical examples that help with understanding the concept, as well as considerations to how cultural proficiency ties into our other main district initiatives.
What is Evidence-based practice? Evidence-based practice is an all-around systematic approach to patient care that was built up on research and proven treatment results within nursing in order to increase the patient outcomes. Evidence based practice is define as “the integration of current evidences and practices to make decisions about patient care”. (Medical Surgical Nursing, 2018).

Nurses are critical for promoting health in the society. The profession is highly flexible, since they specialize in diverse operations in the medical field. Registered nurses, for instance, are responsible for the administration of medicine and inoculations to patients (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Additionally, these professionals observe, record, and enlighten doctors of any changes in a patient’s health. Nurses interpret and evaluate diagnostic examinations to determine an individual’s condition, as well as making the necessary adjustments in patient treatment plans on their health progress. In collaboration with other medical personnel, nurses engage in the development and enactment of patient care plans. Furthermore, they provide education to families and groups on various health issues such as disease prevention, among others.

Throughout this course of four weeks, my perspective of child development has changed drastically in this short amount of time.
