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.
Many influences even though the historical or contemporary that is important to shape the profession of nursing. The Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 [HPCA] and Nursing Council of New Zealand Code of Conduct for Nurses 2012 [COC] underpin the nursing practice, in order to promote the nursing profession. Professional boundaries play an important role in nursing. This essay will identify and discuss how the historical influence which is Florence Nightingale and the contemporary influence that is education has shaped the profession of nursing, the purpose and impact of the HPCA and COC on nursing, how they are implemented in the workplace and also define and explain the importance of the professional boundaries in nursing. One
To achieve this goal I will need to increase my knowledge of how we treat the four main cancers that our patients have. These include lymphoma, myeloma, leukemia, and aplastic cancers. To achieve this goal, I have created a learning plan (see appendix A) similar to the Quality Assurance program the CNO has designed to ensure nurses engage in safe and competent care. An entry-to-practice competency related to this practice under the knowledge based practice domain is “proactively seeks new information, knowledge and best practices for use in the provision of nursing care” (CNO, 2014, pp.
Similarly leadership is the ability to influence people toward attainment of goals (Draft, 2000). The aim of this study is to assess the importance and the need for nurses to have management and leadership skills and to establish the relationship between leadership and management. For many years there has been an emphasis on developing nurses as leaders, culminating in the launch of the Leadership Framework and the National Health Scheme (NHS) Leadership Academy in 2002.
Such initiatives include practice adoption. Education and curriculum reallocation; Model and theory development; Scientific involvement in new research areas. Development of a national research network for improved research (Stevens, 2013). I chose the FNP, too. I think the one of the good aspects of FNPs is FNPs can work everywhere, anywhere.
According to Rachel (2012) “accountability is at the heart of nursing, weaving its way through nursing practice in all settings and at all levels” (para. 1). Accountability builds the individual and organizational credibility by clearly setting the expectations, goals, and commitments. As a nurse, I am committed to growing and advance in my knowledge and skills, adhere to the nursing standards and ethics, involve in professional associations, and attain any certifications needed for my practice. In personal growth and development area, I would rate myself in between the competent and expert level, since I am on track in implementing my action plans to advance my education, keep up with continued education credits required, have a plan for my
Introduction Teamwork builds up the ability of nurses and other healthcare providers to implement higher quality and a more holistic care. In this essay, firstly, I am going to discuss about teamwork in nursing. Secondly, I am going to talk about the importance of teamwork within nurses and other healthcare providers. Thirdly, I am going to discuss about the benefits of having teamwork and proper delegation needed among nurses. And lastly, using Singapore nursing board, code of ethics and professional conduct that direct to this clinical situation.
In the nursing profession there are numerous models of nursing care. Orem (2001) bases her care model on promoting and encouraging self-care and Roper-Logan-Tierney (2000) developed their model on the 12 basic activities of living. The aim of the Chronic Care Model is to transform the daily care for patients with chronic illnesses from acute and reactive to proactive,
Introduction In the nursing field it is essential to provide excellent patient care to promote the wellbeing of all patients. One of the most essential times for nurses to collaborate and work as a team is during report between shifts. It is of upmost importance that each nurse gives a thorough report to the next shift so that they are aware of all issues each patient is having and they can work as a team collaborating proper care to promote patient wellbeing.
In group deliberation, knowledge was seen to be a vital quality within nursing. We agreed that nurses must have a sufficient knowledge in order to provide competent patient care, and that nurses needed to have the ability to apply their knowledge so that they could benefit their patients. In our Coat of Arms, knowledge was characterized as an infinity sign made of green vines. Our interpretation was based on the belief that knowledge within nursing was ever growing, and that the pursuit of knowledge was always relevant within nursing.
NU 413 Week 9 Discussion Board Post student response to Katie-Lynn Fournier by Kathryn Moultrie Good afternoon Kathie, Enjoyed reading your post, and seeing how other organizations handle the operations of their facility and nursing departments. My biggest concern with improving quality care and patient safety issues in that, the responsibility is not ours alone, our Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) and Director of Nursing (DON), and senior nursing management staffs to lead the journey Disch J. (2008). I find it overwhelming that the majority of the research literature (studies, surveys and reports believe nursing plays the pivotal role in changing the face of health care and improving quality care and patient safety.
The purpose of this quality initiative is to provide measures necessary to facilitate the frontline ED nurses in the early identification and treatment of sepsis. The clinical question for this scholarly project is as follows: “In the emergency department, will quality improvement initiatives, improve the frontline nurses’ early recognition and treatment of
In fact, nurses are the largest part of health care workforce and nursing practice is very crucial to address the clinical issues, leadership and management, policy making, public health care and others. Doctorate level nurses have great role in identifying and implementing the new knowledge, skills and evidenced based research to solve those issues in the area of nursing practice (The future of nursing leading change, advancing health, 2010).I personally believe that new skills, knowledge, evidenced based practice and scientific research should be promoted in nursing field so that quality of nursing practice, patient satisfaction and health status of public can be improved. In addition, focusing on the need of nursing practice and IOM future recommendation, I have planned to continue my education to advanced level in
The field of nursing science has been evolving with great speed and nursing knowledge has been transforming into clinical practice. However, Stevens (2013) indicated for meaningful impact on performance and better patient health outcomes, new knowledge must be implemented effectively across the entire care team within a systems context, and measurable terms. Furthermore, the Future of Nursing report from the IOM, 2011a, recommended that nurses lead interprofessional teams in improving delivery systems and care brings to the fore the necessity for new competencies, beyond evidence-based practice (EBP), that are requisite as nurses transform healthcare ( as cited in Stevens, 2013). Evidence-based practice has been and will continue to be one of the most important method that will shape advanced practice nursing environment. Knowledge translation has been facilitating the effective and timely incorporation of evidence-based information into the practices of health professionals in a way as to effect optimal health care outcomes and maximize the potential of the health care system ( as cited in Sudsawad, 2007).
it is imperative that nurses maintain a current knowledge of evidence-based practice to best care for their patients, families, communities, and the health care system itself. The Committee on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the Institute of Medicine released The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health which has eight recommendations to help shape the future of nursing. The sixth recommendation is to ensure that nurses engage in lifelong learning. (Institute of Medicine, 2010).
