The bachelors prepared nurse is taught the critical evaluation skills and is able to evaluate the ethical aspects of the career at a higher level. After even a couple semesters in this program, I find myself looking at situations experienced on my unit very differently than ever before.

Thornfield was a completely different world for Jane. It was a major change physically and socially, as a governess she had more opportunities and duties to fulfill. Jane was not intimidated by what was expected of her, yet she was excited to see what the future at Thornfield had in store for her.

A “Five-Plus-Five” formula was developed to help guardians protect the rights of the vulnerable elderly who need cared for.

The five steps for evidence based practice are: 1. Ask questions that are focused on client situation in relation to nursing practice – To effectively apply an Evidence Based Practice approach (EBP) The nurse must first decipher an appropriate question to gathering the evidence from the client.
