In conclusion, Orlando 's theory mainly focuses on the nurse-patient interaction with the application of nursing process with successful goal attainment at the forefront. However, as essential as that is, the second reason for Orlando 's theory is to emphasize nurse 's purpose which extends from caregiver through care planner to care evaluator while preserving a therapeutic relationship with a client. Consequently, Potter and Bockenhauer (2000) summarize that " education and practice in Orlando 's Nursing Theory were found to help nurse achieve this outcome. In achieving this outcome, the nurses were better able to achieve their mission-excellence in each nurse-patient interaction" (p.21). Finally, I would like to wish everyone in this class the most abundant experience on the way to accomplishments in the chosen direction of advanced nursing profession and thank for the most diverse and stimulating discussions.
Knowledge on leadership concepts in nursing is significant, in that, it help to guide our practice. When we are delegating duties and supervising over other staff members, we are all demonstrating our leadership abilities. “Leaders are those individuals who are out front, taking risks, attempting to achieve shared goals, and inspiring others to action. Those individuals who choose to follow a leader do so by choice, not because they have to” Marquis & Houston (2015). In this assignment, a leadership concept will be selected and related to the information on communication in this week’s discussion.
Becoming a Professional Nurse and Personal Attributes Needed To Establish An Effective Professional Relationship. The 2006 article “What Makes a Nurse” by Rush and Cook and Davis’ 2014 article “Emphatic Nurse” both describe important qualities for becoming an excellent nurse. This paper compares and contrasts key concepts proposed by the researchers such as communication, attitude, skills, knowledge and empathy. This paper will also consider life experiences and personal attributes to determine adequate qualities that nurses should have. Being a nurse is more than just giving medications, changing linen or providing personal care to patients.
An important part of nursing is to integrate health and disease prevention into the lives of individuals. As nurses, we are often the frontline people who interact with patient and the community. It is our responsibility to strategize ways to promote being health, preventions of diseases and remaining safe. The main and probably most important way to do this is by educating and teaching. According to Kemppainen, Tossavainen, and Turunen (2013), “health promotion by nurses can lead to many positive health outcomes including adherence, quality of life, patients’ knowledge of their illness and self-management” (p. 490).
First, when planning a client care plan, nurses must establish priorities and optimal outcomes of care that are measureable and can lead to a successful evaluation. The “SMART” mnemonic acronym is a guide process that is similar to the nursing process by using critical thinking to assess the problem and innervate a plan that can later be evaluated. (Claire, S.) The nurse should keep this process in mind that will help contribute to creating a successful care plan by making sure the goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and Time-bound. Nurses work with clients to identify goals and successful outcomes. Informatics is helpful because one would be able to use the collected data to research previous care plans or other methods that had worked previously.
It is recognized that in the training on NL’s the preparation for leadership is a critical element, in addition to being an important priority for nursing in general. The American Nurses Association(ANA) visualizes the complexity of the nurse 's managerial role given that they are currently being asked to execute leadership to build quality work environments, implement new models of care, and contribute to the development of a workforce which encourages healthy nursing and well-being. The efforts of organizations and individuals to foster and develop transformational and relational leadership are needed to improve nurses ' satisfaction, recruitment, retention, and healthy work environments. Leadership competences include personal mastery, interpersonal effectiveness, financial & HRM, & systems
While advanced practice nurses are on the rise to help ensure that all patients have available providers, the role of the doctoral nurse practitioner (DNP) is imperative to healthcare. DNPs will make a dramatic impact on health policy by nursing education and improvements in patient care in health settings and this will help decrease the gaps within accessing healthcare (Sawyer-McGee, 2016). The advancement to DNP is not viewed as a role, but as and academic degree (AACN, 2015). The DNP nurse promotes the development of a broader assortment of analytical, philosophical, and evaluative processes. This degree helps prepare the individual to become a stronger nurse leader within the clinical, academic, administrative, community, and in the political policy arena to achieve change.
To elaborate about the questions, I asked about critical thinking and how she uses it at her work she talked about how she bases her thinking on the patients and their assessments. She talked about how she uses critical thinking for her interventions and she said that by using critical thinking she could see a difference in the patients’ health. According to Pérez, Canut, Falcó-Pegueroles, Puig-Llobet, Moreno-Arroyo, & Roldán-Merino (2014),” Critical thinking is particularly important in the nursing profession, given its potential impact upon the care that patients receive. The capacity of the nursing professional too achieve improvements in the quality of care depends, in large measure, upon developing critical thinking skills so as to improve diagnostic decisions.” (p.2-3) This quote emphasizes exactly what Sonya said about critical thinking and how it improves decisions and patient
Nursing Professional Development: The Effect on Patient-Centered Care The nursing profession is one of the most meaningful and passionate careers which has grown in the medical field due to the nurses’ holistic care, dedication and responsibility to their patients, and the healthcare demand for a more qualified level of care. The art of nursing, which creates the human relationship between the patient and the nurse, and the science of nursing that implements the knowledgeable nursing practice, both combined achieved patient-centered care. Nursing Education Nurses acquire education to improve their practice, promote health and prevent diseases. The American Nurse Association defines the nursing profession as the protection, promotion, and optimization
1. The metaparadigm of nursing illustrates the collective worldview of the shared concepts of the discipline, which are: the person, environment, health and nursing (1). The nursing metaparadigm is the framework for many nursing theories, values, and theoretical models, which help guide an advanced practice nurse in selecting appropriate interventions established by their chosen conceptual model. A conceptual model or advanced practice nursing theory provides an advanced practice nurse a logical structural model to follow, which is aligned with the discipline’s expectations. Advanced education prepares advanced practice nurses to employ a superior degree of clinical, research based and theoretical knowledge (2).
What’s Required of a Professional Nurse Ashley Edwards Chamberlain College of Nursing NR351: Transition in Professional Nursing September 2017 What’s Required of a Professional Nurse Professionalism is something that is required in the nursing profession. A professional nurse needs to promote an environment full of accountability, responsibility, and ethical behaviors to promote a trusting, lasting relationship with your patients.

therefore, improve quality of life. This is due in part to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, personal variables and interaction of internal and external variables that impact communication with patients. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-19-2014/No.3-Sept.) Every nurse can employ to advocate for nursing as part as their daily activities must be point of care, nurse manager, or nurse educator. (www.nursingworld.org/Vol-17-2012/No.1-Jan.) There is one common voice among nurses, if they accept to join. The American Nurses Association (ANA) is a professional organization that advocates and protects the profession of nurses.
Nursing educator competency 6 as of ‘Pursue Continuous Quality Improvement in the Nurse Educator Role’ reveals certain qualities development and implementation, to enhance nursing education and practice. The educator involved in identifying the needs and activities changes for improvement through further educational practices which propels the nurses to engage in lifelong learning (www.nln.org, nd). Effectiveness of educator role demands the recognition and support from the nurses, nursing faculties and other nursing leaders for participating in research and thereby, the elements of evidence-based practice established. This continuous process of learning occurs in the educator by integrating self-actualization, and fostering knowledge of previous experience into the innovation with help of mentors and supports of faculty colleagues (www.nln.org, nd).
