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.
Teamwork: When it comes to the healthcare field, teamwork is very important to ensure ultimate patient care. The nursing profession is all about helping each other. A professional nurse understands the importance of helping his/her coworker now and then. Nurses also will be in need of help at times. Enthusiasm to help is a part of a nurse 's professional attitude that is most respected.
First of all, I believe that the profession of nursing is all about people. Care involves the whole patient, and not just a single illness or health concern treated in isolation from the whole. Our holistic perspectives consider all factors of a patient 's life, and give the best quality of life to our patients. Secondly, while human beings are central to nursing, it is also necessary to look beyond the patient to the environment in which he/she lives. This is very important because people are members of a larger community with different features and characteristics that influence greatly our patients, so we cannot separate patients from their environment because they are interrelated.
Before I discus on the potential action plans if at all there is reoccurrences on the similar incident, I would like to stress on that such incidence should not had taken place at all. I strongly believe that all the nurses including me had learned a lot from this incident and we do not wish to compromise another patient’s life by repeating the same error again. However, medication error is not something new in healthcare service. Researchers had identified medication error is the high numbers of incidents involving nursing practice. Therefore, we still need to plan as there is a saying ‘if we fail to plan then we are planning to fail’.
This professional portfolio can only represent a small part of my professional strengths. It cannot show my sincerity, compassion, or my determination in my every day professional patient care. For example, it cannot represent my dedication towards my patients or coworkers on a daily basis. However, my portfolio does demonstrate my capability to write and communicate clearly which is essential in health care for nursing orders and direct patient care, to reduce errors and increase patient satisfaction in health care. I truly believe in order to do an efficient job, an individual must work hard to accomplish personal and professional goals.
I had never thought of it before, but it was perfect! It fit both the things I want to do, work with kids and help people. I think nurses are so important. Without them a hospital would be nothing, and more people would be ill without the proper care they need.
212). However, with that being said, faculty stress the importance of EBP in clinical practice, but there is minimal research on how nurse educators design EBP into their curriculum. Also, the National League for Nursing states that nursing curriculum design be an evidenced-based teaching practice, but report that nursing faculty used little evidenced-based theory to guide the curriculum design, evaluation, and educational measurement (Kalb, O’Conner-Von, Brockway, Rierson, & Sendelbach, 2015). Because of the nursing shortage, new graduates are placed in staffing rotation with inadequate orientation compounded with little experiences.
The world of pediatric nursing is something that is not fully appreciated until you get a first-hand look inside what it is really like to care for sick children who sometimes, unfortunately, do not always make it. Take oncology pediatric nurses for example. Their job is to care for and treat children with various forms of cancer, and besides the obvious, they also play a pivotal role in “optimizing the end of their patients’ life.” (Hildebrandt, p602) These individuals witness death on a day to day basis and they are trained to help a patients’ family deal with these losses, but they are on their own when it comes to how it affects them and how they are supposed to properly handle the situation.
I want to become a Medical Assistant because I enjoy helping others, and making them feel better. Medical Assistant is not just a career for me, it’s a goal that I will achieve with much pride and honor, and prove wrong those people who keep telling me that I’m not going to make it. I’m not really good in science, but I’m going to push myself to try hard to achieve my goal. Don’t ever let anyone label you, be your own kind of person and make the “impossible” possible. I know that it’s not going to be easy because of all the things you have to learn and memorize to become a Medical Assistant.
Throughout my experience, I have also learned that patients are not necessarily telling us the truth about themselves and no one gets into a mental health clinic by accident. The knowledge and experience will defiantly influence my future practice because I am planning to be working as a nurse. I am not sure what kind a job I am going to be offered, but if it turns out to be mental clinic I am very confident to take the job. In any medical field, the chances to be working with a patient who has a mental illness are very
Maybe right now it does not seem like it but in the long run you will appreciate it. Second, the purpose of education is not only structural it’s a personal too, because where who stand in front of the hundred of people and distributed knowledge, they need for see and learn to not process. We need education to reach make our dream come true. For example, if we need to be a nurse or doctors then we need to education without education is not possible.
Overall, organization within your group of nursing assistants and how accurately you doyour job it the most important thing you could do. Not being organized and not giving the correctcare to the resident could harm you as the nursing assistant or the facility itself. In my eyes, whatyou are told when you are trained should be the correct ways to do everything, if you are taughtone way but it’s done another way when you actually do the job, it is very misleading and shouldbe handled or else you will have an unorganized facility with plenty of chaos such the facilitiesin the
It is not the job of senior employees to talk with others about the changes but the less resistance we experience from senior employees the less we can expect to see from the workforce as a whole. Senior employees have been through changes with the company in the past and will hopefully comprehend the necessity for individuals to help shoulder the burden of health care costs. The main body workforce will benefit from letters detailing the change and an open healthcare seminar to go over changes. Employees will form opinions about the reasoning for the changes immediately and why the company has elected this route. Workers may feel that the company is looking to grow profits by spending less on employees or that the company is in poor financial health and that this change is needed to continue operation.
There is a list of people in this world who are generally seen as vital to society. Doctors, teachers, lawmakers, scientists, and many more make this unspoken list. Doctors are needed to save people, teachers educate the next generation, and lawmakers make necessary decisions for the public. But for most, one kind of person would not make it on that list, they wouldn 't even be considered for it-humorists. TV shows, movies, comic strips, and other forms of satire are seen as entertainment; thus, they are not essential.
Don’t get me wrong, being a RN is hard and it’s hard work to get there. The schooling it takes to get there is very difficult but when you’re done it ’s so worth it. In my opinion RN’s don’t make as much as they should for all the work that they do.
