My two greatest strengths are my communication and problem solving skills. I excel at understanding customer needs and motivations, and using this insight to tailor selling points, to understand potential obstacles, and to devise effective solutions. My greatest weakness has been the difficult I have in declining additional work assignments. I love new challenges and I have sometimes undertaken too many projects at one time and overextended myself. I have learned to weigh
The care planning process is a fundamental part of nursing, Barrett et al (2012) emphasises the importance of the process by recognising it as a clinical skill that needs to be learnt and developed. Care planning enables information to be gathered, taking in to consideration an individual’s biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico economic status. These factors are incorporated in to the care planning process to enable an individualised care plan that meets the holistic needs of the individual (Doenges and Moorhouse, 2012). The aim of this assignment is to explain and explore an individual approach to care planning and how using a nursing process and nursing model collectively will provide a holistic approach to care. The nursing process also called the problem-solving approach originated in 1967 and consists of four stages; assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation (APIE) (Yura and Walsh, 1967). However, Barrett et al (2012) reasons, two further stages need to be considered within the problem-solving approach meaning APIE becomes ASPIRE, the systematic nursing diagnosis and recheck complete the acronym ASPIRE. Barrett et al (2012) also states, to be fully successful in meeting the needs of the individual a nursing model needs to be incorporated in to the process to ensure every aspect of information is considered.
As part of my studies of the Perspectives on nursing module I have been assigned to examine dignity as a value which underpins nursing practice. Dignity is a multi-faceted concept and can be defined as ‘’ The state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect’ (https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/dignity, 2015)’. Respect for the dignity of the person is the number one principle of the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives (NMBI, 2014). Also, this principle notably finds its origins in the Universal Declaration of human rights (United Nations, 1948) (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, 2014). Throughout this piece I will emphasize how this principle interacts with nursing

How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we got? Everything I went through you were standing there by my side (Khalifa, 2015) are a few of my favorite lyrics. Growing up I remember constantly being surrounded by family. Not to mention family can play a large part in compliance because of their influence. Furthermore, including the family when treating a patient generally holds the best results. At the same time family does not have to mean blood relative, in reality family is whoever that individual deems their family their support system. When a patient is diagnosed with a chronic illness such as Diabetes they are most likely going to require medication, appointments, and lifestyle changes. Compliance can be increased drastically

A number of kids in care are kept safe from harm, although a small percentage are still at risk of neglect or abuse. Children enter care for a variety of reasons, but most enter because they have been neglected or abused. These past experiences can leave the children with mental health and emotional needs, which can leave them more vulnerable to further abuse. Many of these children also move between placements and are in and out of care. This can stop them forming relationships with adults who could protect them.
To begin with, my top strength is positivity. According to Rath, “ You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation” (Rath p141). I believe it is always important to be positive regardless of how bad a situation is. My job is to motivate others when they become pessimistic of a certain task. This strength is essential in both school and a career as neither a classmate or a co-worker wants to surround him or herself with negativity that makes for a long day. This strength will

In the past, I was not exercising until few years ago and I became very ill and overweight. My doctor and a personal trainer suggested that I start doing some type of form of exercise at least for 30 minutes 3-4 times each week. Instantly, I began to notice that I felt a lot better and had more energy to do my daily tasks and was able to believe in myself more.
In today’s society, it is common for employees to have many challenging responsibilities in their life other than work, for example, commitments involving parents or children, education or sports commitments or personal interests outside of work. People want to escape work for a greater sense of well-being and to reduce stress levels. A poor balance between an employee’s work commitments and their other responsibilities can lead to low productivity as well as high stress and absentees. Meanwhile, employees with better work-life balance often have a greater sense of responsibility, achievement, ownership and control of their working life. If an employer helps an employee to balance their work and home life, the organizations can be rewarded by increased loyalty and commitment. Employees will also be able to focus more on their work and to further develop their career in current organization.
