The career I chose to pursue is Registered Nurse. The reason why I chose Registered Nurse as my career choice is I love helping people.

IHI Certificates and FEMA Certificate- Current and Future Practices The IHI and FEMA Disaster Management certificates I completed was, shared decision making, quality in health care and introduction to the incident command system for healthcare/hospitals.

Quality Nursing Care - Summative Essay Abby Smith A8a Introduction I will be using Driscolls model of reflection (2007) to look back and reflect on how my concept of Quality Nursing Care (QNC) has advanced and also how that has adapted me for practice. Reflection is a crucial tool to help achieve continuous lifelong learning in the nursing profession because by using this tool Nurses can collate both their academic understanding and nursing practice.

W-6 PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES 1. I chose this competency because as a nurse it is vital to maintain professional boundaries and still be able to provide the therapeutic care without personally getting attached to patients. 2.

In my eyes, nursing is the ability to provide safe, holistic care to all people regardless of their age, race, gender, social status, or sexuality. Nursing is a profession in which it is essential to be caring and respectful of all patients in which they may be experiencing the most difficult health situations of their lives and to provide culturally safe care. My values of nursing shape my practice as a nurse and are affected by my views on health. In my eyes, health is not solely related to medical illness and disease.
Nursing Delegation for the RN Delegation is considered to be among the most involved nursing skills which require a nurse to apply knowledgeable clinical judgment and accountability during patient care. RNs have an obligation to finding what is needed for patients and families and then using the appropriate delegation to staff to help carry out the plan. This helps maximize on achieving the most desired outcomes and also maximize the use of available resources. The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.
