In 2011, Reed and Shearer published “Nursing Knowledge and Theory Innovation: Advancing the Science of Nursing Practice”, promoting a philosophy and methods of practice-based knowledge development. Reed is a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing and a member of a number of professional organizations, including Sigma Theta Tau International, the American Nurses Association, and the Society of Rogerian Scholars (Masters, 2012). She serves on the editorial review boards of numerous journals and was a Contributing Editor for a Nursing Science Quarterly column, Scholarly Dialogue (Smith & Liehr,
From these realizations I have concluded that the professional nursing theories which most align with my own philosophy is a combination of Jean Watson’s theory of human caring and Rosemarie Parse’s theory of human becoming. Watson’s theory of human caring outlines the science behind caring as a driving force and framework for practice in nursing. It explores the concept that “humanities address themselves to deeper values of the quality of living and dying, which involve philosophical, ethical, psychosocial and moral issues” (Watson, 2005, p. 2). Within her original text, Watson outlined 10 “carative factors” which bridge a gap between the science of the healthcare field and the holistic nuances of nursing itself and the phenomena that is the human

APNs must put patient care and health care policy first. Cockerham and Keeling define APN as specialist in nursing (2014). Each definition is very different, but they are all important concepts that make up the role of an APN. The ANA and APRN definations are very similar because they both put focus on the importance of evidenced based practice
Advanced practice nurses (APN) have a vital role in the future of health care, especially since the enactment of the Affordable Health Care Act. With more citizens having health insurance coverage they will be seeking health care providers, and there are not enough physicians to care for them all. According to Letiziam (2014), advance practice nurses are licensed autonomous health care providers that have been trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients and their conditions. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella that covers four separate roles of nurses, this includes: the certified nurse midwife (CNM), certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA), certified nurse practitioner (CNP), and certified nurse specialist (CNS).
Conversely, the Francis report (2012) declared that nurses need access to precise, comparable and timely information to improve practice. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2015) guidelines state that it is vital that nurses take charge of their own research to ensure use of current best evidence in practice, and developing this research will promote person centred care (McCormack 2003). However, few nurses have actual experience in conducting a research study in the clinical setting (Squires et al. 2011). To enable the critique of this qualitative paper by Paul Canning, the Caldwell framework will be used, although other frameworks will be also be accessed throughout (Appendix 1).

Ganz et al. (2009) and Roddy et al. (2009) both emphasize the importance of utilizing evidence-based research in health care services. Ganz et al. (2009) research study is a quantitative study which seeks to determine what is the best evidence-based research that relates to oral care practices for ICU nurses.
Truly caring for patients is not something one can be taught, but something someone already has or starts to develop through experience in their field. This paper will examine the metaparadigms of nursing from personal and professional resources, thoroughly inspect what the term caring can refer to, what the Bible says about caring, and finally, how a personal worldview and a Christian worldview can impact the care delivered by health care provider. Part 1:
The physician assistants need to qualify through a general medical examination. They are not required to complete any residency. The examination they need to clear is known as PANCE. Whereas, the nurse practitioners have to qualify through a more specific examination related to some particular medical field, examples of such fields are geriatrics, paediatrics and so on. Physician assistants can prescribe medicines, but the nurse practitioners need to apply at the state level to obtain the permission for prescribing medications.
