Health can be summed up simply as the absence of illness, but true health is having physical well-being, mental stability and being socially accepted amongst your peers. Environment and society determine what is considered normal behavior and what is not. The norms of a person’s society will affect how people care for each other as friends and family members and as nurses. Societal norms also determine the standards of care that nurses are expected to perform. Nursing includes both scientific and benevolent knowledge and the compassionate delivery of a holistic health model.

We called this place “sheep camp”.

Hence, it is recommended for different healthcare facilities to give awareness to their healthcare administrators and health infection nurses to use hand hygiene markers in order to avoid nosocomial infection. This aspect will deteriorate the mortality and morbidity rate as well from the healthcare and among the patients since majority of the diseases are contagious and are travelled from either physicians or nurses to patients. This effect leads to more diseases among patients, nurses, administrators, and physicians as well.

Dignity is a complex concept but is a central nursing value. Nursing care should be delivered in a way that respects the uniqueness and dignity of each patient regardless of their culture or religion. Dignity can be defined as “Patient dignity is feeling valued and comfortable psychologically with one’s physical presentation and behaviour, level of control over the situation, and the behaviour of other people in the environment” (Baillie , 2007). A patient’s experience in a hospital environment can depend on whether their dignity is promoted or threatened. Dignity can be violated, that is why it demands respect but also at the same time protection.
Contextual Project on Public Health Management 1. Concept of Public Health nursing Public Health Nursing is the science and art preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental health and efficiency through organized community effort toward a sanitary environment (Basavantappa 2008). Public health nurse deals with health promotion and prevention by identifying risk population and initiate ways of prevent such identity risk.

Anybody needs a nurse hence the development of the need theory. Unitary human beings theory by Rogers believes that a person should be harmonized with the environment so that the person may attain maximum health potential. Self-care theory by Orem explains that a healthy person should have wholeness of the human structures, mental and body functioning. Her nursing theory suggested that as much as people seek for nursing attention from the experts, they first start their nursing with themselves and nurse their family members. Neumann’s system model theory looks at the environmental stressors, and the nurses try to retain and maintain the patients’ health through maintaining the patients’ system fit with the environmental system.
In Chinua Achebe’s masterpiece Things Fall Apart he portrays the evolution of Okonkwo, a tribal leader, struggle to get out of poverty, and the colonization of Africa.

Just like Okonkwo, his village had high expectations for all it people, but those expectations were not kept for long.
When I decided to enroll to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be dealing to different types of people and be part of a team that would be responsible in healing and promoting wellness to our patients. When I acquired my license, I immediately started to look for a job where I can apply the concepts I have learned. I was accepted to various nursing homes and during my stay I got the chance to meet and work with people from other countries with different culture. At first, I was hesitant to converse with them because I might say or do something that is inappropriate to them. For example, I have a workmate who is a Muslim and I am a Christian.

Theme 1: Family– In North Korean concentration camps and North Korea in general, there was no concept of “family”. Shin was born and raised in the concentration camp, and he did not have a loving or caring relationship with his mother, father, or brother. Shin even saw his mother as another competitor, and he rarely spoke or interacted with his brother. “When he was in the camp–depending on her [his mother] for all his meals, stealing her meals, enduring her beatings–he saw her as a competition for survival,” (16). Outside of the camps, North Koreans also turned in whoever spoke out or went against the leaders of the country, and their rule, even if it was their family members.
Why I Chose Nursing As a young girl, around the age of eight, I decided I wanted to become a singer, however, that was only a dream of mine. As I got older and more mature, I realized all fantasies do not come to life, so I began to venture toward a more reasonable career path. At first, I wanted to become an anesthesiologist, then a nurse anesthetist when I heard they spent less years in school. I would not necessarily say I lowered my standards or decided on a less prestigious program, but as of right now, I wish to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. This decision was solely based on my shadowing experience.
