Mrs Glover is a young female of 26, who recently had bowel surgery, which has resulted in a stoma site being formed.

Joalexis Nursing Professional Development Plan Introduction While attending high school I always wanted to work in the healthcare field. I completed an emergency medical technician program at Valencia College. I started working at Florida Hospital Orlando (FHO) as a psychiatric technician in their behavioral health unit. While working at FHO I meet many nurses, I saw what they did, and desire grew on me to become a registered nurse. The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60).
Mrs. Johnson was in charge of the home and all of the basic domestic needs of the family. Mr. Johnson had the role of being a provider and protector for his family. After Mr. Johnson passed away, the charge nurse in the dialysis clinic approached the social worker saying the social worker needed to find Mrs. Johnson a nursing home to move into as she cannot live alone, can't pay her bills, and can't drive. How would you (as the social worker) respond to the nurse's request? This is currently an example of the cases we deal with on a daily basis.

The registered nurse (RN) at the clinical site is responsible for identifying students’ health-related barriers to learning and developing a plan for service to reduce those barriers (BCPS, 2017). There are multiple levels of management above her level in the organization. My preceptor fits into the organizational chart at the lower end of the organizational chart. My RN preceptor has one individual under her scope of authority that she manages once per week. The type of structure BCPS has is formal (Schatz, 2017).

Problem based Learning assessment Nursing diagnosis is a clinical judgement based on a thorough nursing assessment to existing or possible health/life problem. Nursing interventions are then selected by nurses to which they are accountable for, to achieve a desired outcome. (Herdman, p. 515).

While understanding communication between nurses is important, similarly, communication is also important to the nurse and other disciplines. I was able to witness effective communication between disciplines that focused on the patients’ health. One example of this was pertaining to a patient in the ICU room. The respiratory therapist discussed the patient’s current situation with the hospitalist. The nurse I was shadowing used successful communication with the CNA on duty to help assist with the patient’s current needs at that particular time.
