I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
Philosophy of Nursing In regards to my own individual values, working at the institution of Lawrence General Hospital has aided in my beliefs and values. This is because the hospital has a similar set of ideas as myself. Quality care is huge, especially within a healthcare setting, everyone should try to attain their best work in order to promote the absolute best possible patient outcomes. Patient complications would increase dramatically and cause other potential patient health related problems if quality care was not implemented in nursing practice. Integrity is necessary to build a positive patient and health care provider relationship.
The institute of Medicine two thousand and ten report on the future of nursing, aims at changing leadership and education of healthcare and nursing. Also, the report urges the nurses to take an enhanced role in the growing complex system of health care. the IoM report is as a result of an examination on the manner in which nurses' academic qualification, duties and responsibilities ought to alter to meet the growing demand for healthcare. Additionally, The report aims at enhancing response to a changing and complex health care system via improving nurses' role in provision of care. Nurses represent the greatest population of medical workforce and are at a good position to realize the goals set in the 2010 IoM report.
Patient empowerment: Patient empowerment in the international point of view is seen as a portion of the human side of healthcare. To gain the empowerment requires time and patients need to be strong in order to gain greater outcomes. With mutual trust gained from the nurse and patient, both nurse and patients will gain the confident. Being a Malaysian I am proud to say that our Malaysia Ministry of Health, had strongly support patient empowerment and each individual are responsible for their own health. It is believed that, regulations and enforcement activities are the tools to facilitate and enhanced individuals and the communities towards self empowerment.
It is of the utmost importance for the nurse to take all the competencies into consideration while caring for a patient, but the most important competency for a palliative care nurse is systems thinking. I believe the need for this capability supersedes the others, as according to Matzo & Sherman (2015) it is through this competency that the nurse is able to apply the knowledge they possess and it in turn offer the patient an improved quality of life as they are undergoing palliative care. This allows for the nurse to have the capability to provide the patient with the care they require. This capability enables the nurse to be competent and recognize the patient’s needs and tailor a specific care plan unique to the specific needs of the patient.
The profession of nursing takes a person and transforms them into a multitasking sensation. While this may take years to perfect it is one of the greatest feats a nurse can secure. Every nurse must have the ability to critically think, multitask, prioritize, delegate and stay sane through this process. It is the overwhelming sense of need that brings people in the profession. People need nurses to care for them when they cannot themselves, and nurses need to help.
I have engaged APRN and MD’s committed to providing comprehensive clinical experiences and supervision. The challenges I anticipate are the many demands on my time, which I will need to continue to manage efficiently. I am fortunate to have the support of my family, and continuing to show them my appreciation for their support through this will need to remain a priority. My education pathway has progressed to meet the essential knowledge foundation for a rapidly changing healthcare system. To be a competent Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and clinical leader I felt it was essential to have the knowledge triad of leadership, efficient healthcare utilization, and complete my NNP.
I have to have lots of trainings to refresh what I have learned from college. Ideally, cannot go through success if I do not have the experience and not fully equipped with the knowledge. As the modern technology increases, many advanced equipment and skills, which will be needed training before using and some of them become obsolete and replace in due time. In nursing profession, staff must have a lifelong in-service trainings and seminars to maintain professional expertise in related areas. Many health conditions have been discovered.
I deal with a lot of clients who in spite of their level of education are still ignorant about health promoting behaviours. So during immunization clinics, antenatal clinics and diabetes/hypertension clinics we teach and demonstrate health promoting behaviours and answer their questions. For instance, through statistics, we discovered a lot of babies were admitted for diarrhoeal diseases. This is not strange in the communities but it was worrisome to us because our clients were graduates from the universities who supposedly were enlightened. Clients were invited along with their wives and a campaign for handwashing and simple hygiene was done for them.
Reflection Paper The Institute of Medicine has put forward important ways of improving the nursing profession so that nurses can provide high quality care to a population that is aging and so different in many ways. The purpose of this paper is to consider how I would fit into numbers 4,5 and 6 proposals of the Institute of Medicine future of nursing report and how my level of education would affect getting a job as well as how increase education would influence my role in the future of nursing.
