Analysis of a Registered Nurse Bethany Dyer B17004326 2/11/18 A Registered Nurse (RN) is an individual who has graduated from a school/college nursing program and has passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). “The RN assumes responsibility for the care of the sick, injured, disabled, and the dying. Registered nurses work both independently and in collaboration with other healthcare professionals” (Buhler-Wilkerson 2017).

(Adults with Incapacity, n.d.) (Notes, n.d.) The key piece of legislation I have selected that would benefit Mary the most would be the National Health Service and Community Care (Scotland) Act 1990, (NHS and Community Care (Scotland) Act 1990). Mary is still a very independent individual and as she does not wish to leave her home to potentially stay in a residential unit, she just needs additional support for living within her home.

When professionals carry out an assessment of need Mary could be able to access a number of organisations that will fulfil her needs both socially and physically and under this act all organisations must deliver their service in a co-ordinated way and work within partnership to ensure the best quality of care is being
According to Lampe (2013) a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a graduate prepared advanced practice nurse that provides expert clinical care in a specialty population and practice in a variety of settings. Generally speaking their practice is specialized in a clinical area that can be identified in terms of: population, setting, disease or medical subspecialty, type of care, or type of problem. The main difference between a CNS and NP is that the CNS practices in a specialty population, and the NP can treat a larger population. Rules and regulations vary for CNS depending on the state in which they choose to practice. Rights for prescribing medications to patient range from independent prescribing authority to no prescribing authority.

Having grown up in a community underserved in mental health care, my beliefs are commensurate with the National Health Service Corps’ in that access to health care is a basic human right. As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner I will strive to increase access to mental health care for individuals in underserved communities as a nurse in a community-based practice. National Health Service Corps’ mission to increase accessibility of quality health care will benefit from my commitment to serving individuals without health insurance and those living in rural and urban areas where mental health care services are limited. Through the incorporation of the principles of psychology, psychiatry and social work, I will provide my patients
The purpose of this review of literature article was to create a conceptual framework model of practice recommendations and interventions that can be used to acknowledge the benefit of expanding nurse practitioner scope of practice (SOP); develop a uniform nationwide consensus APRN SOP; and reveal evidence that shows that poor patient healthcare outcomes can occur as a result of restricted NP scope of practice due to barriers created by either physician-related, political, and/or organizational opposition. According to Poghosyan, Boyd & Clarke (2015) over a 4-month period articles were used to build the model. Policy papers, research studies, including original research and reviews, and reports focused on nursing workforce in the United
