“School nurses are responsible for providing and supervising school nursing services for children with complex health concerns” (DuChateau, Beversdorf, & Wolff, 2015, p. 173). A clinical flow plan will make the clinical setting positively conducive for students and teachers. This could be accomplished by setting up clinical flow plan that would serve as a routine guide for how care is administered upon arrival of the student to the health suite all the way until the student returns to
Registered nurses work in collaboration with physicians and other healthcare professionals to coordinate and provide patient care. The goal of a registered nurse is to help individuals, families, and communities reach an optimum state of well-being. A registered nurse has graduated from a nursing program and has met the requirements outlined by country and state to obtain a nursing license.

As we got more into the scenario, I felt a bit more confident because these are some questions we can ask and almost fell like a real patient talking to us. These questions sally was asking are very relevant and realistic; questions that a patient might ask in the preoperative phase. I remember when I went into surgery, I was asking the doctors and nurses questions upon questions because of the fear of unknown. If the patient knows the information and the facts, the patient is more comfortable and is less anxious. Surgery is a scary thing, so knowing information is very beneficial.
Before a person becomes a health provider they had to go through certain training and practices to reach their job position. The best way to include empathy is to remember that at some point in time we were patients; put ourselves in patients shoes. We have all experienced similar experiences, and everyone goes through problems no matter how big or small the issues are. I believe that it is time that healthcare professionals teach their students and remind them how effective empathy can be; not only for the patients but everyone who is part of the healthcare system. Reinforcing empathy to our daily healthcare practices will most definitely make a difference to many lives, including
Team B is comprised of nurses and nurse educators. As nurse educators, one of the goals is to prepare students to pass the NCLEX (National Council of State Boards of Nursing) exam. The HESI test provides an opportunity to assess how well students are prepared for the actual NCLEX test. In helping prepare students, it would be useful to know if the exam averages in class correlate with HESI scores. This could be used as a gauge to verify that the information covered in class are the items the students need to know on the HESI exam.
An informed decision is a decision by a patient about a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure, based on choice and current information. As the teacher and nurse, the first step to ensure the expect mother is making a truly informed is assessing how well she understands the progress of pregnancy and the initiation of labor. As the educator, it is important to encourage the expectant mother to ask questions about anything they may not understand. Other areas to assess is personal experience and vicarious experiences from family and friends. Lastly, what does her current circumstances permit her to do such as work and support system?
Therefore, continued success rests heavily upon nurse educator 's to collectively instruct and integrate informatics in the classroom and clinical setting.

She was helped by a nurse 's aid. If they needed answers they usually went to the doctors or went back to their patient information for more insight. A typical day for Cindy was woke up, checked on al her patients, took vitals and then prepared them for any tests or surgeries they needed for the day.

Thesis statement: A medical assistant does both an administrator and health care professional duties. I chose this thesis statement because I’m going to school for medical assistant. It is very important that u know the role of your job field. As a medical assistant u have to check blood pressure, take temperature and you have to be able to deal with sick and non-sick people. Here is some examples of administrative and clinical procedures: greeting patients and answering telephones, booking and canceling appointments.
I also attended classroom workshops on inter-professional working and communication by Helen York, where I learnt the important features of inter-professional working, and also the importance of communication in improving patient satisfaction and outcome. During inter-professional working workshop, we had healthcare professionals from various hospitals that came to our school to share more about their roles and responsibilities. An activity was carried out, where the healthcare professionals will walk around the teams to discuss more about their roles in the healthcare field. We were supposed to identify and make a list of the healthcare professionals who would be involved in getting into contact with the patient with a certain condition or

A vital role of the nurse is to be a teacher. The nurse should interactively teach patients, and family members how to care for their new body. The importance of medication therapy adherence is an important subject.

I really enjoyed my clinical rotation to Whelan Elementary School. I have to be honest in saying I was not looking forward to this rotation. I thought to myself, “How much could a school nurse do in one day? I’m going to be bored out of my mind.” Lucy the school nurse proved me wrong.
