Framework for Praxis The author is pursuing the Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PNP-PC) course. In order for nurses to be able to assess and manage their patients, they should be able to effectively synthesize knowledge (Higgs, Burn, & Jones, 2011). This paper aims to provide a succinct discussion of the ideological, theoretical, and ethical framework that influences the author’s praxis. Furthermore, this paper will discuss how the author’s philosophical viewpoint and theoretical framework affect how she views her phenomenon of interest on newborn screening for critical congenital heart defects (CCHD). Lastly, this paper will present the author’s graphic model of her praxis framework.
They were just meant to assist the physician during treatment, assist in the patients personal hygiene administer medication that is prescribed by the physician and dress wounds. These were just things that any woman could do. Nursing demands much more now as they are educators, client advocate, and managers.

Professional Autonomy in Nursing refers to the ability of the nurse to act based on her knowledge and judgement.
Currently, total patient care is used in intensive care settings where a nurse provides total care to one or two critically ill patients. Nursing educators often select this method of care when students take care of patients. There are variations of the case method, and it is possible to identify
Clinical Nurse Leaders are part of an interdisciplinary team members working together to plan and implement most effective patient care. There are differences in terms of leadership. Family Nurse Practitioners act as a leader related to patient care in terms of patient diagnosis, treatment modalities for the wellbeing of the patient and community. Registered Nurses with their work experiences can work as clinical nurse leaders and monitor the care provided by the nurses on the unit. They participate in other nursing organizations or committees and provide suggestions to improve health care system.
(Galbraith, 2007) Pharmacist plays a vital role in medication cycle, they are responsible for monitoring patient health and enhance their response to medication therapies. The pharmacist also educates the patient on the use of prescription and over-the-counter medication. In addition, they educate physicians, nurses and other health care providers about the medication. The pharmacist is responsible for storing the medication in specific secure place such as cupboard also they prepare a different kind of medicinal product such as ointment, cream, powder, ear, nose and eye drops, lotions, mixtures, antiseptic solution and syrup. (Galbraith, 2007) Question 2: Outline the process of communication and teaching elderly considering HAAD Standards?
While physicians prescribe medications to treat medical conditions, pharmacists have a vast knowledge of the therapeutic effects, adverse reactions, and are able to advise the patients on the appropriate way to take each medication. The pharmacist also reviews the medication prior to dispensing it to the patient as a final line of defense to prevent medication error. Because of a pharmacist’s role in a community, they
Introduction: This assignment will explore the Roper, Logan and Tierney model used in first clinical placement and will explain how it helped to guide nurses to focus on the fundamentals of patient care. Patient dignity is upheld by using this model following the principles outlined in the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives as will be discussed. An outline of the philosophical claims of the nursing model that guides practice on the unit for first clinical placement. : Firstly, the assignment needs to define what is a nursing model. A nursing model is a model made up of metaparadigm concepts involving the person, environment, health and nursing.
Another question I asked was what model of clinical consultation do you use or identify with in your supervisory experience and she responded with the same answer as “clinical case consultation, to me, would be the staffing of a clinical case to discuss diagnostic criteria and modalities of treatment (A. Tuggle, personal communication, December 2, 2015).” The last three questions is about emergency management system (EMS). Her response was that agencies need EMS to ensure the safety of clients and staff. She described it as a roadmap for everyone to follow to ensure safety and health of everyone in the
What They Do Nurse anesthetists belong to a wide range of advanced practice nursing in multiple medical settings and perform a variety of medical tasks to help the patient. Nurse anesthetists belong in the group that includes nurse midwives and nurse practitioners, while each of their duties are unique, becoming a nurse anesthetist is what I am the most interested in. Nurse anesthetists provide anesthesia before, during, and after various procedures whether they’re surgical, therapeutic, or diagnostic or even obstetrical procedures; during emergency procedures nurse anesthetists provide pain relief and pain management by the use of medications. However, it is extremely important to assess the patient and their medical history to become aware of any illnesses, allergies, or previous administered medications so the judgement call can be made for the medication to be administered safely and successfully. Nurse anesthetists remain with the patients during the procedure to monitor the anesthesia state of the patient during and after the procedure.
I learned that nurses need to be familiar with patient’s rehabilitation by knowing therapies that are indispensable and beneficial for their recoveries; and that active involvement in the prevention of deteriorations and complications in physical health and function is important for the patient (p. 22). 3. The article changed the way I think and understand that knowledge is power hence educating patients on best practice to get them back to health or functioning normally is of the essence. 4. In my future practice, I will frequently update self of therapies and pay more attention to details that the patient identifies as essential for recovery to better help them regain their well-being and ability to perform their daily activities.
Demonstrate effective use of technology to navigate the electronic health record, communicate with inter/intraprofessional teams, and be involved with decision making in the delivery of quality and safe patient care. (Ivy Tech Community College, 2016). Rationale In nursing, the use of technology is vital in providing high quality of care and complete understanding of the patient. Technology is used in the health care system to chart patient health information, communicate with the interprofessional team, and monitor plan of care. The nurse, upon licensure, recognizes the importance of computer literacy and the effect technology has on patient outcomes.
