Considering the changes that continue to arise in the healthcare environment, the nursing profession can make a profound contribution if it embraces nursing leadership. Especially to limit failure in care provision, strengthening nursing leadership continues to be fronted as the basis of care provision. Consequently, I view that nursing leadership ought to be central to the nursing professional goals. In this paper, I will reflect on my values and beliefs in nursing leadership and my future expectations from a perspective of a nurse leader in a manner that is consistent to what I would desire in nursing leadership. I believe that progress has been made, but some areas still need to be given more weight.
The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge. Considering doing so, it helps nurses to understand their purpose and role in nursing in the healthcare setting. Henderson believes that the unique function of the nurse is to help the person sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (to a peaceful death) that he would do unaided if he had the strength, will or knowledge. In doing so will help him gain independence as quickly as possible (Burggraf, 2012). The Scope or Level of theory The scope or level of theory used by Henderson was a grand theory.
How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
In the following paragraphs, the grand theory of Jean Watson will be explored for its usefulness in practice. We will explore how the theory is congruent with current nursing standards and nursing interventions. Next, we will study if her theory has been tested empirically, if it is supported by research and if it is accurate. We will explore if there is evidence that her theory has been used by nursing educators, researchers, and nursing administrators. Then we will study how her theory is relevant socially and cross-culturally.
In nursing programs throughout the United States, there are various nursing philosophies with different emphasis on multiple beliefs. After exploring Immaculata University’s nursing philosophy, I concluded that it coincides with my own nursing philosophy with a focus on assisting individuals by promoting, restoring, maintain health, and to assisting them to die with dignity. Although the nursing philosophy is similar to mine, I believe that nursing philosophy consists of having compassion, professionalism, and providing safe care. Compassion is an important component of promoting the health of the individual. Lifelong experiences make a nurse have empathy for others and in turn enables nurses to be compassionate toward their patients.
The nursing metaparadigm is significant to my nursing practice and my philosophy of nursing. The concept of person in nursing metapardigm signifies in my opinion, if my patient needs water, food, and shelter. I would consider if my patient is comfortable and suggest non-pharmacological and pharmacological. I also believe that nurses should be looked as
Introduction Nursing is provision of professional care to individuals, families, and communities in order to make them attain, maintain or recover optimal health and resume the good quality of life. Other than the receiving professional training and possessing well-trained therapeutic skills, nurses should also have good ability of interpersonal communication, because during the process of therapy, large amount of communications are involved in it. Nurses and patients will experience an inter exchange of information between each other so as to reach their mutual goals. Hildegard E. Peplau raised the theory of interpersonal relations, the theory explains the phases of interpersonal process and nurses’ roles in different phases, encouraging
Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015). As the assessment begins for Mrs. Adams there are many things that need to be addressed.
Watson mentions this in one of his carative factors. Develop helping, trusting and caring relationships, Patient care relies not only on the skill of one nurse but on the efforts of many. The team's ability to collaborate and work together. Use the diverse experience of the team around you to meet your patient's needs. As well as building the confidence of
They are considered to be the foundation of nursing (Watson, 2005). The processes entail forming selfless values in order to provide supportive care, being attentive to the belief system of the patient, showing understanding to oneself therefore being able to incorporate it into patient relations, developing a trustworthy relationship with the patient, accepting the patient’s feelings as valid emotions, and problem solving in all aspects of care, which is a similar aspect to the personal viewpoint of critical thinking (Watson 2005). Other processes include adapting teaching styles and methods to meet the patient’s needs, creating an environment that is comfortable and healthy to promote healing, providing assistance with daily care which also promotes healing, and being attentive to the soul and its well-being (Watson, 2005). Watson (2005) compares these statements to love invoking, which “allows love and caring to come together for a new form of deep transpersonal caring,” which “connotates inner healing for self and others” (p.
