The patients will trust the nurse when they know that they can be reliable. The nurse can gain clients trust by being caring, showing an interest in them, being honest and showing the client that they are listening to them. In nursing it is important to be empathetic. The nurse ensure that they are being empathic towards the client and not sympathetic. Empathy allows the nurse to relate to the client’s pain or distress.
Some of them would include active listening, preventing falls, preventing illness, controlling pain, promoting self-care, and restoring health. Watson’s caring theory promotes health through caring, love, and looking at the patient as a whole person (Sitzman,
Holistic care includes caring for an individual as a whole by assessing their physical, psychological, spiritual, social and cultural needs and providing care in an environment which supports this philosophy (Price, 2006). Person-centred care not only involves the patient but also includes meeting the needs of the family and/or carers of the patient and involving other members of the multi-disciplinary team. The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) (2008) Code corresponds with Price (2006) by mentioning that nurses must treat people as individuals and respond to their concerns and preferences, guaranteeing that
Application of Theory Dorotheas Orem’s theory of Self-Care Deficit notions of were that people should be self-reliant and accountable for their own care. If they are unable to or lack in they need to be helped which is where the art of nursing builds its blocks from. Orem mentions how people are very distinct individuals, and how a person’s knowledge of the potential health risks and problems are necessary in order to be aware of potential risks and signs and symptoms. In order to promote self-care and promote substance in the person’s life knowledge is the key. Orem identified the provisions also known as the ADL’s as a person’s intake of food, air and water.
Iom Report on, the Future of Nursing The IOM report of 2010 regarding the Future of Nursing: Leading change, advancing health is one of the most viewed on line reports in the IOM’s history. This milestone report calls for the leaders and amour bearers to act on its recommendations, including changes in public and institutional policies at the federal, state, and local levels.

The vision for this campaign is for all Americans to have access to high quality, patient - and family-centered care in a health care system where nurses contributes as essential partners in achieving success. It is focused on three
The goal of Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory is to decrease the self-care deficit. When patients are ill, they need assistance with care. As nurses we are there to provide the care needed while allowing the patient to perform as many tasks as they can for themselves. By allowing patients to provide care for themselves, they develop a sense of confidence and can assist them in overcoming obstacles in care. Per Meleis (2012), “Orem’s theory is categorized as a theory whose primary focus provides a framework for assessing needs of clients and developing intervention in enhancing peoples’ abilities to manage daily care for themselves and their dependents, and conserve their energy, and
It taught me about the compliance of risk management for fall and the consistency of skills required based on the standard of nursing practice so that as a nurse, it will help us to improve our quality of care and keeps risk management skills updated. Besides, it taught me about how to be a careful nurse at the same time try to fulfill the patient’s needs. Decision making is important. As a nurse, we need to think the rationales before you provide your care to or for the patient. Risk management do help us decrease the nursing liabilities, but it also remind us to always follow the protocols and principles of nursing practice or on the other words ‘not to break’ it.
Furthermore, nursing means knowledge of the current evidence-based practice to help a patient with the highest quality of care, but respecting patient’s wishes, if the wishes differ from current evidence-based care. Particularly important is the holistic view of a patient. Individuals do not live in a vacuum; family, society, cultural standards, and the connection to nature influence the patient and need consideration when caring for the patient. Personal nursing philosophy compared to Madeleine Leininger’s Theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality Madeleine
It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
The results of these studies strengthened the author’s belief that the community benefits from the implementation of this public health program. The author is currently a pediatric cardiothoracic operating room nurse and is knowledgeable on the complications and mortality due to the late detection and delayed surgical treatment of CCHD in newborns. The author believes that changes in normal newborn screening routine is beneficial and should be implemented in nationwide.

Moreover, the author plans to evaluate multiple evidenced-based practices that are being implemented in her facility and publish articles in the
