Nurse Practitioner Interview I spoke with a friend’s sister, a recent graduate DNP, who works as a women’s health NP at a public health clinic system in Utah. Role The role of the women’s health care nurse practitioner can vary widely depending on the setting. J. Yale sees patients for both annual visits as their main care provider and for gynecological issues (personal communication, September 9, 2016). “Many people don’t realize you can do annual visits,” she said, “for example, I can treat someone for high blood pressure in the clinic, in an office setting.” (J. Yale, personal communication 2016). The practice where Ms. Yale works has five different clinics, including a community clinic that serves a high-percentage refuge population, a clinic inside a hospital, and a clinic …show more content…
In some of the clinics we are completely alone, no doctors. Other times NPs and doctors will be seeing patients side by side. Usually doctors are really open to consulting with the NPs, if the NP wants to make sure of something. We don’t report to them. We both prescribe meds, refer to other specialties as needed” (J. Yale, personal communication, September 9, 2016). The rest of the healthcare team works as we would expect, she reports – secretaries check people in, RNs take vitals and histories. In Texas this system would likely be quite different, as NPs have a restricted scope of practice and would not be allowed to work concurrently and independently with doctors.

My knowledge in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) continues to expand as I progress through the DNP program. The knowledge I have attained while in the study of the DNP I and DNP II is priceless. For example, recognizing stakeholders and utilizing networking has helped me to progress on my DNP project (Gokenbach, 2012). I also have a better understanding as well as the purpose of a DNP project. My mentors have been great in directing me in remaining on the right track.
Registered nurses are required to deliver wide-range nursing attention and treatment to all persons in a healthcare setup (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Notably, they have to offer emergency care and guarantee the safe execution of treatment. It is mandatory for nurses to demonstrate a broad knowledge of the laws and regulations that are in line with their profession. Additionally,
For my senior project I job shadowed a registered nurse on the Acute Rehab floor at Mercy General Hospital. My goals for senior project were to learn the basic skills a nurse needs to help a patient and to learn how to interact with different types of personalities. My mentor for my project was Michelle Whitten, she has been a nurse for two and a half years. Michelle has a B.S in nursing and a B.A in human development. She is certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR, Basic Life Support BLS, Advanced cardiac life support ACLS, Pediatric Advanced Life Support PALS, Cardiac Monitoring, MPR, and Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse CRRN.
Public Health In community health setting, Advanced Practice Nurses serve as clinicians, nurse educators or administrators. They provide services in schools, day care centers, community health clinics, group homes as well as in skilled nursing facilities. They are involved in the health of new mothers and babies through pre-and post-natal care, preventing domestic violence and child abuse through education and awareness
Each morning patients came in for assessment and the treatment team developed or altered existing treatment protocols. I longed to be part of this team, working to stabilize each patient so they could return home to pursue their goals. The nurses stood out to me as the team members at ground zero in the unit, working directly with patients, and advocating for them in meetings. As a Nurse Practitioner, I will provide this same standard of holistic care to my patients, taking into consideration their biological, social, psychological and cultural needs while developing and implementing treatment decisions.
My passion for nursing practice defies description; leading to the reason I am opting to pursue a higher level of education in nursing. The George Washington University School of nursing has one of the highly ranked master’s programs in the country, which offers a competitive curriculum and highly defined leadership skills that integrates technology into learning. It is therefore my desire to pursue an advance education at this facility because it prepares practitioners to become great clinicians ready to solve real-world clinical problems. Moreover, the opportunity to pursue a degree in this facility will afford me the ability to be a competent and highly efficient family nurse practitioner; that will serve the community and mostly the underserved. I am the last child in a family of eight that has aspired to pursue my education at the graduate level.
I care about providing the best holistic healthcare I possibly can for my patients through evidence-based practice. I respect individuals’ race, socioeconomic class, gender, and sexual orientation. I work well with others and I strive to help create a good working environment where people can communicate, ask questions, learn new information, and feel respected. With this New Graduate Nurse Residency Program, I hope to be exposed to many different clinical situations. I hope to further develop my clinical leadership skills and to gain new knowledge.
One of the first discussed was the number of patients that a physician at a community clinic was expected to see daily. The physician in the film maintains that she is constantly scrutinized by administration to increase her productivity. The physician however does not feel that increasing the number of patients she sees allows her to properly care for her patients. She is more concerned about the quality of care she provides versus the quantity of patients she sees. She gives this as a reason for her quitting this job.

there are scopes and standards of practices that the practitioner must not act outside of (ANA, 2016). There are also state regulation scopes of practices that allow for Nurse Practitioners to practice independently, with reduced practice, and with restricted practice. Along with these practice environments, Nurse Practitioners must abide by facility and institutional policy and procedures that outline their scope of practice (ANA, 2016). There are very few states that still allow Nurse Practitioners to practice without a national certification. These states in the future may require the nurses however to in fact take national certification as more employers and third party insurers for malpractice are looking
It took me a while to find nurses that wanted to participate in my interview. I was able to interview 2 nurses at a medical center because this week at my private practice, with the help of an Ecuadorian Audiologist who has ABR/ASSR system, we had a Microtia week from all over Bolivia and one of the mother’s was a nurse assistant, she made the contact with her boss and I was able to interview both, yesterday. (NP: nurse practitioner and NA: auxiliary nurse- MARIA) 1) What motivated you to become a nurse? NP:
I am in my third year of nursing and I am currently working in a hospital on an Orthopedic Neurological Trauma Unit. I collaborate with patients to identify the prominent health issues they are experiencing and advocate to ensure the care they receive is the most effective for their healing process. Patient interaction, learning new skills and evidence based practice, and being hands on with patient care are the benefits of my job that I enjoy the most. I form a bond with these patients and listen to their personal story to ensure that I give care individualized for each patient. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I can connect with patients of various age ranges and diagnoses by applying these
I have had the privilege to interview The Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst of the James A. Haley VA Medical Center. Dr. Jola Massengale Worked as a Registered Nurse for over twenty years, and in 2011 she earned her doctorate in Nursing Health Administration. Short after her graduation, she was promoted to Chief of Nursing Research, and two years later, she became the Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst. She was chosen for this interview because, in 2016, she was one of the key leaders to revamp the way the organization conducted their Las strategic planning process. Although the meeting was scheduled for one hour, it only lasted thirty minutes since Dr. Massengale was called away by the Hospital
1. INTRODUCTION T. S. Eliot (1943) once wrote, “We had the experience but missed the meaning”. We can have all the experiences in the world, but if we missed out on reflecting, how would we be able to find the meaning? In this reflection of an interview we were tasked to complete, I will be adopting Gibbs’ (1988) reflective cycle to help me in the describing, exploration of feelings, evaluating analysing, identifying implications, before concluding and writing the action plan. 2.
