This journal article discusses the benefits of using different types of “thinking”, particularly reflective thinking and how this approach brings about a better form of nursing practice. The RN’s transitioning to BSN in this program are valued in their current knowledge and challenged with case studies or scenarios in which they must apply clinical judgment, individually or as a group in order to develop specific patient centered care without deviating from evidenced-based practice or quite possibly create a better policy or protocol. The effectiveness of this environment of learning allows the RN’s to exercise their intuition, knowledge and skills as the faculty relinquish what’s “right” vs. “wrong” and encourage these advanced nursing students
Reflection The reflection process for NUR 445 allows me an opportunity to reevaluate my current understanding of nursing and the new principals learned in the class. This paper will examine the process of retrieval, appraisal, and synthesis of evidence in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team to improve patient outcomes. The paper will also inspect importance of reflection to advancing practice and improving outcomes of care and assess the values the need for continuous improvement in clinical practice based on new knowledge. Next the paper will recognizes personal capabilities, knowledge base, and areas for development and Integrate evidence, clinical judgment, interprofessional perspectives, and patient preferences in planning, implementing, and evaluating outcomes of care. Finally, the paper will examine new values, ideas and interventions to improve patient care.
In 1870, nursing had been learnt from the mothers to the daughters. Now it has been changed to the school education that the students learn the nursing skill from the nursing professionals and the education programs of nursing keep developing from the 1900s to now that the diploma school has been changed to BSN, AND, and the postgraduate school has also been replaced by Master degree, CNL, PhD, DNSc, ND and DNP (Martha, n.d.). Therefore, the people have more chance to learn and be the nurse. Education programs also produce more and more professional nurses for the world to develop the nursing profession. Nursing education provides the nursing theories and practical training for the students to help them learn the knowledge of nursing and their duties, in order to protect patient safety and the safety of the public.
The integration of technologies simulation into the curriculum of the nursing education provides benefits for the student and the faculty related to improvement of the competencies and patient safety. The teaching strategies of simulation provide to enhance the confidence and communication among the nursing students. In addition, clinical simulation provides to improve skills and goals for each clinical setting (Cannon & Boswell, 2016). Although, simulation have demonstrated to enhance in the students the levels of cognitive, affective and psychomotor. (Curl, 2016).
Nursing research is a systematic review designed for develop knowledge about concerns related to nurses which containing nursing education, nursing practice, and nursing administration (Polit & Beck, 2006). Based on Tingen et al (2009), nurses able to deliver a good quality care for patient by applying evidence based practice through research. Besides, nurses have to be knowledgeable in research and evidence based practice to provide the best outcome for the patients. In addition to nursing research aimed for influencing the immediate arrangement of nursing and health care to beneficiaries of nursing care, nursing research likewise is expected to create learning in regions that influence nursing care forms by implication. Research within the
This part of the paper will explain what a CNA is and what task is safely delegated inside their scope of practice. A certified nursing assistant (CNA) is a healthcare professional who assists patients with various healthcare needs, under the direct supervision of a registered nurse(RN), or a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Responsibilities of nursing assistants vary from state to state, but for the most part they play an integral role in the health care process. Nursing assistants help physicians and nurses care for patients by feeding, cleaning and transporting patients. Nurse aides can receive additional training to specialize in specific kinds of care, such as midwifery, and may be required to have additional certifications to work in a labor room.
How is the nurse enhancing their skill set and knowledge? What are nurses doing to advocate for patients and the profession? These are all the questions the professional nurse must examine. Gaining insight into the definition of professionalism and explaining behaviors which exemplify professionalism will allow the student nurse to better prepare for their role as a registered nurse. If a student starts acting in a professional manner in the beginning of their studies these behaviors will translate into a habit and habit will become
The guidelines set by the NP’s Core competencies involves educational programs for nurse practitioner and are referred to as essentials behaviors for all NPs (The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner, ([NONPF],2017). As a future NP, this course has echoed the importance to critically examine information given by finding evidence to support and manage care for the individual or the population, which I will apply to my practice. This, in turn, will offer better treatment plan and optimize better patient outcome. Using the differential diagnosis to pinpoint the best possible diagnosis for individuals has helped me to use critical thinking about my patient and to find the appropriate plan of care. Integrating humanities and sciences in nursing is important and allow individuals to enhance their knowledge and critical thinking skills in their nursing practice.
One of the student nurse goal of this experience includes interviewing different members of the collaborative team to understand their role and scope of practice. The student nurse will monitor the client during rehab and determine how well activities are being tolerated. Another important goal of the nursing student include contributing to the client’s plan of care and implementing tasks in a timely manner. Providing holistic and competent care is the core of nursing practice, so it was important the nursing student spend an adequate amount of time assessing the non-physical part of the healing process. The mind and body are both interconnected, and the student nurse final goal was to uplift the client’s mood to encourage optimal participation in
