With the ongoing healthcare demands and shortages, the appropriate role and responsibilities of the advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) will continue to be a controversial debate. There were many points addressed in your post that I agree and don’t agree with. It is most certainly not arguable that physicians do endure a longer, more intense education. I personally believe their role as a hospitalist is valuable and should never be discredited for their knowledge and expertise. However, I also believe that they are doing their patients a disservice if they are being overworked due to provider shortages.
Without caution, it can be easy for nurses to make numerous amounts of errors when performing medication administration. These errors can potentially be deadly, or cost the hospital a lot of money. It is always important for any nurse administering medicine to abide by the six rights of medication administration. When nurses are working with medications the nurse needs to be focused on the task at hand. It is ultimately up to the nurse to provide their patient with the highest standard of quality
She also states that in her settings, one of the most challenging is not having full backgrounds of patients as she is not a primary care provider (PCP) and every patient is pretty much a new case. It takes a lot of efforts to collect and process all the information and despite of that, sometimes a lot of information’s are still missing. PCP’s can review their patient’s history and especially for chronic disease they can have a good idea about the situation. Another challenge as she states is that patients understanding of NP role and what NP can do for them and what cannot. A patient may ask for a prescription which might be way beyond our expertise, I don’t think even PCP would do it.
The problem is a universal one where numerous nursing positions are left vacant as less individuals are becoming interested in the career or experienced ones are choosing different career paths (Fox & Abrahamson, 2009). To solve this problem, nursing positions will be filled with certified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) who are capable of performing basic nursing functions. The EMTs would work under the supervision of experienced nurses and report to the administrative nurse of the day for quality assurance. EMTs would be working in part-time positions rather than full time to reduce spending. Through EMTs, frustrated nurses who feel overwhelmed with their tasks and feel the need for assistance will be less stressed and gain the ability to focus on heathcare.

"Civility is an authentic respect for others that requires time, presence, willingness to engage in genuine discourse and intention to seek common ground (Clark, 2010)." Unfortunately I have come to learn that, incivility is a fairly common issue in nursing in regard to nurse-professor, nurse-nurse, nurse-physician, and nurse-resident relationships. I don't believe that it's always meant to be hurtful. Sometimes incivility occurs simply because of the fast-paced environments, long hours and high stressed environment. Regardless, it's inappropriate and unprofessional behavior.
For lack of control nurses believe that no matter what mistakes doctors make its always falls back onto the nurses and it is there responsibility. Sometimes nurses feel as if to much control is put onto them and it increases their workload which results in nurses feeling burnout as they are stressed and tired. For reward nurses felt that this was a common factor of burnout. (Freeney and Tiernan, 2009). Nurses argue that the salary is quite poor and that there are no incentives to invest deeply in work.
The various middle-range theories are preferred over grand theories, as researchers need the generation of testable hypotheses. (McEwen, 2014. pp. 213-214). This discussion will identify how the middle-range theory Interpersonal Relations and how it is applicable in solving nurse fatigue. The assumption is that only nurses who work in the hospital setting are subjected to nurse fatigue, but this problem affects in the rehabilitation facilities, home care nursing, specialized clinics.
Because of this issue others are being affected in many different ways. This issue is not only affecting the hospital, but also the patients. In the article “When Hospital Paperwork Crowds Out Hospital Care” by Theresa Brown argues that nurses have too much paperwork to fill out about their patients. Having too many paperwork takes away from the nurses getting involved with their patients. In my opinion, neither of the arguments are valid because they lacks supporting details .Even though Robbins and Brown are passion about their topic, they both did a great job using pathos
