The Nurse of the Future (NOF) Core Competencies Models were choosing to achieve one optimal goal of providing quality of care to patients and their families. The NOF Nursing Core Competency provides a normal structured of approach to nursing and patient care, and they are all equally important in their unique ways.
The Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies include ten areas of expertise: Patient - centered care, professionalism, informatics and technology, evidence - based practice, leadership, systems - based practice, safety, communication, teamwork and collaboration , and quality improvment. After a lot of research, these competencies were selected based on how we can transition from our current practice and education standards to our future practices. The ten competencies that were selected are based on the foundation of nursing education and how it will translate into the practical world. It is very important to understand each aspect of this model because it is the core of how we develop our nursing knowledge while transitioning from student
Nursing Core Competencies, Leadership At The Forefront Paul Oviasogie Broward College Nursing Core Competencies, Leadership At The Forefront Daphne Mallory stated, "Leadership is the art of serving others by equipping them with training, tools and people as well as your time, energy and emotional intelligence so that they can realize their full potential, both personally and professionally.” In nursing, RNs are encouraged to become proficient, professional leaders in the workplace. Nurse leaders embrace the responsibilities of their fellow nursing staff as well as the care of their patients. Also, leaders in nursing are devoted to advocating for their patients, ensuring patient and nursing satisfaction, delivering safe,
Nursing Shortage According to Nictitas, Middaugh, and Aries (2106), nurses are the largest segment of the healthcare workforce and are indispensable when it comes to quality patient care, patient safety, and patient satisfaction. It is projected by 2020; there will be a shortage of over 500,000 nurses (Nictitas, Middaugh & Aries, 2016). A shortage of this magnitude will have a negative impact on our healthcare system. This paper will attempt to reflect on the issues that have resulted in the nursing shortage and discuss the future of the nursing profession.
Nurses are the liaison between the doctors and the patients. We should acknowledge an honor the patients as a person regardless of his status in life, and not ignore them, paying attention to every details pertaining to their health. • Lifelong learning – I strongly believe that the education doesn’t end after graduation but continues even when you are in the nursing profession and working. Part of being a nurse is the application of knowledge and skills and the continuation of learning. My goal is to make it a point to stay current and updated on education by taking courses, attending seminars, trainings, obtaining certifications, as well as joining meaningful nursing organizations.
5 NURSING PROCESS The nursing process is a series of organized steps designed for nurses to provide excellent care. Learn the five phases, including assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating. 5:1 Personnel Context As a nurse can make a huge difference in the health of my patients by many methods.
I am excited to be a part of Nursing Informatics. I was not sure what to expect, as this is my first online class. Since starting, I was suprised to see how Nursing Informatics applies to me at work. As I was taking the assessment, I discovered how much I enjoy working in the Electronic Medical Record. The Cerner program I use at the hospital gives me quicker access to patient information, improves efficiency, and reduces the potential for drug errors.
Demonstrate effective use of technology to navigate the electronic health record, communicate with inter/intraprofessional teams, and be involved with decision making in the delivery of quality and safe patient care. (Ivy Tech Community College, 2016). Rationale In nursing, the use of technology is vital in providing high quality of care and complete understanding of the patient.
The watershed “IOM Initiative on the Future of Nursing” report encompasses a four pronged approach or some might say, a challenge to the whole profession of nursing. the challenge to be better educated so that we can provide the highest quality of care to our patients, the push to encourage health care professionals to achieve higher levels of education. The initiative to have a stronger voice and presence in guiding the direction of how the health care landscape in this county. All of these factors come into play in the ever changing landscape of our health care system. Now more than ever nurse leaders have a great opportunity to have a profound impact on health care policies and decisions that will eventually decide which direction our current health care delivery system takes.
I have gained knowledge about informatics. I have learned about the great importance of electronic medical records (EMR) to the current and future of patient charting and documentation. I have gain skills in how patient portals work, their purpose, as well as their importance to patient self-efficacy. My attitude has always been positive to the importance of informatics. I believe that change in health care can be difficult and very hard.
Camilli (2014), asserted that educational delivery is being carried out in innovative and convenient ways, including the use of simulation, virtual classrooms, distance education, podcasts, web conferencing, and online assessments. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) can be easily recognized as standard components of the nursing process and daily nursing practice, appearing as electronic assessments. Furthermore, nursing students are gaining increasing exposure to technologies during undergraduate studies which includes increasing volumes of electronic health records (EHR), digital diagnostic tools, health monitoring, and reporting equipment, barcode scanning, as well as mobile and hand-held documentation devices. This skills can be applied to clinical setting such as using EHR to follow up patient laboratory results and relay critical lab values to the physician. Also, barcode scanning can be used to prevent medical errors by giving the correct medications to the patient and also prompts the EHR for any related allergies to the medication that is prescribed during treatment or hospitalization.
These skills include nurse-patient relationship skill, interactional skills, basic physical examination skills, clinical encounter across the life span, therapeutic communication skills, positive attitudinal skills etc. Assessing the development of nursing skills in students should be done often and acquiring of these nursing skills should also be a continuous learning process. This indicates that extensive experiences and supervision from mentors, preceptors, supervisors, teachers, considerable time on task and involvement of students are necessary to achieve a considerable nursing skill performance. The students’ interest in practice and the environment also influences the development and acquisition of nursing skills. In this case, students’ goals should include increased self-knowledge and scientific awareness in addition to their gradual improvement in professional nursing practice.
The last past eight weeks have provided an opportunity to achieve several program outcomes that will prepare me as my role of nurse practitioner. This course NR 602 has provided me with an opportunity to meet the MSN program outcome #6, the MSN Essential VII, and the Nurse Practitioner Core Competencies # 8. These program outcomes will institute a base upon which care can be delivered with quality.
