By using therapeutic communication, we can help them cope with the emotional distress of experiencing illness, whereas the utilizing science, professional experience, and knowledge can guide us how to treat their physical disease. I believe that one can reach optimal health and wellbeing through achieving balance in a spiritual, emotional and physical state of being. The contribution I hope to make to the nursing profession in the future is to become a leader and a mentor, who can inspire others to utilize a holistic approach to delivering optimal individualized care. To stay abreast of the innovation in the nursing profession, I am looking forward to joining the American Nurse Association, and eventually, participate in the evidence-based research, which directed on improving the quality and accessibility of health care across our nation and
The nation’s health is at risk and nurse should be encouraged to continue their education. Advancing educational levels help to prepare nurses for leadership roles and encourage autonomy in the nursing profession and practice. With health care policy constantly changing it is imperative nurses begin to design and advocate for healthcare policy to decrease or eliminate health care inequities. The American Nurses Association’s current definition of nursing is “the protection, promotion and optimization of health abilities prevention of illness and injury alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities and populations” (Nickitas, Middaugh & Aries, 2016, pg.
However, she was able to link the person’s health with the environment through nursing so she was able to interrelate all four concepts into one circumstance (Potter & Perry, 2013). The primary focus of the first concept, nursing, is that the nurse is to give the patient the best possible conditions to thrive in by controlling the factors that affect the health and healing and taking “charge of somebody’s health” (Nightingale, 1860 p. 1). The person in the environmental model was never really defined by Nightingale, but is multidimensional and simply the patient receiving the care. The person is impacted by the environment which leads me into the third concept of environment.
These viewpoints have importance for medicine as well as for nursing or other health professions. The complete practice of human caring theory is most fully realized in a nursing theory because nursing allows for the constant caring factor that medicine does not have;
Healthy People 2020 aims to educate and support the nation in wellness and prevention just as well as nurses do. Nurse as well as Healthy People aim to improve each individual’s health in more ways than one. When it comes to nursing I feel that it’s our duty as nurses to do our best to educate these patients and help support them on their journey while they are in your care in hopes that what you taught them sticks with them once they are
1.When I think of Nursing, I see it as part of the health care institution providing a venue through which people of social and personal conscious may engage humanity to effect positive,concrete, growth and change. There are many aspects to nursing which define and guide it. For me, I
Professional Presence and Influence Being able to promote a positive healing experience for patients is a significant responsibility for nurses. What heals one patient, may not work for another patient. Being equipped to identify what part is vital for each patient’s healing is not an easy task. Understanding different approaches to medicine, how different personality types function, how to be mindful rather than distracted, and what promotes an optimal healing environment are essential facets to provide exceptional care.
Orem affirms the theory of nursing systems defines exactly how the patient 's self-care essentials will be resolved or met by the patient or nurse (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). Orem classifies three classifications of nursing systems to encounter the self-care conditions of the patient. They are categorized as wholly compensatory system, partly compensatory system, and supportive-educative system (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). Nursing systems are a “sequence and structures of measured applied engagements of nurses to protect any disease processes, detect any abnormalities and to bring that patient back to equilibrium (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). A good example of this theory would be the nursing process.
Cognitive / Function Assessment Report The goal of the second visit to my client was to do a comprehensive functional assessment, which is physical and cognitive function, including independent performance of basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), social activities, or Instrumental Activities of Daily living (IADLs), the assistance needed to accomplish these tasks and sensory ability, cognitive and capacity to ambulate. I started my assessment with the Lawton Instrumental Activities of Daily Living to assess more complex activities necessary for functioning in a community setting, for example, shopping, housekeeping, cooking, managing finances, transportation and taking medications (King 2015). The Lawton IADL Scale took me 10 minutes to
This model suggests that mind, body and environment interact in causing an illness. Holistic nursing assessment recognizes the totality of human being, that is, it focuses on the whole being. Notably, holistic nursing play a leading role in facilitating the healing process. It enables nurses to honor the clients’ subjective experience about health and beliefs, and so it assists individuals to access their greatest healing potential. It also allows the nurses to integrate self-care and self-responsibility and thus they understand their clients’ situations and relationships.
Nursing Theorists and their Theory 1.Florence Nightingale- Nightingale’s theory of the Environment is mainly focused on the environment, she believed that, the environment has a great importance that can be used to improve and encourage healing. With proper ventilation, clean air, lack of noise , proper lighting, and adequate elimination of waste. Are a few factors she believed and can be observed and maintained. 2.Sister Calista Roy- Roy’s Theory is based on, in which the individual views biopsychosocial being, in which a person adapt with the constant change of the environment.
Objective: At the end of the NUR 201 course, students will be able to outline and analyze the implication of societal directions and social determinants of health on the health of unique, families, groups, and communities (Iwasiw & Goldenberg, 2015). This course objective will provide trends and relevant information about health promotion. It makes nursing students to know and understand what is the purpose of the health promotion and caring. In this case, this course objective is necessary in nursing curriculum because it makes nurses or nursing students to encourage and empowering individual, families, groups, and communities to engage in immunization program, weight loss programs, or any other programs related with the health promotion.
It is the person and their physical, emotional, and psychological needs that are the basic focus of nursing’s attention. In order to care for a patient, the nurse must incorporate all these needs. For example, providing reassurance with an anxious patient who just finished hip surgery. Care also plays a major part when taking care of a unique patient. Caring influences my personal philosophy because it is the most important aspect of nursing.
My perspective on holistic nursing and self-care Introduction In context of World Health Organization, self-care is often defined as activities individuals, families and communities undergoes with the motive of increasing health, overcoming disease, limiting illness and restoring health ("What is", n.d.). The knowledge and skills are gained from both professional and lay experiences for such activities. According to Klebanoff & Hess (2013), holistic nursing is defined as all nursing practice that has only motive of healing the whole person as its prime goal. A holistic nurse is like a licensed nurse who often incorporates a “mind-body-spirit-emotion-environment” approach to the practice of traditional nursing.
