King interrelated the nurse and client relationship by incorporating communication through transaction to establish mutually set goals in care. The nurses transact in a multitude of environments with a goal focused on positive health outcomes. Human beings are the underlying focus of nursing care. Nursing care focuses on promoting, maintaining and restoring health, caring for those that are sick and caring for those who are dying while promoting dignity (Leo-Demare et al., 2015). Stress, roles, time, and space are factors that King focused on to initiate the attainment of goals.
As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off. At the end of the day, what the patient wants is what they will receive from every nurse on the floor. A nurse must be a patients advocate, meaning as a nurse you will support your patient and defend them and what they believe in. Bringing me to the third professional value, human dignity, the value or worth of a person (96). This value, in my opinion is the
It is important that nurses acquire skills such as communication skills- both verbal and non-verbal, therapeutic, and clinical decision making among others. The ability of a nurse to communicate well and make appropriate clinical decision, determines the success of holistic assessment in nursing practice. There is no doubt that the capability of a nurse to provide the best and quality care is largely dependent on her or his ability to communicate, judge and make clinical decisions.

Watson’s caring model requires the nurse to look at the uniqueness of the individual and go to all extents possible to preserve the patient’s dignity. The second element, the transpersonal caring relationship, describes the nurse’s caring consciousness and moral commitment to make an intentional connection with the patient.

Reflection involves methods of “reflection on and in action”. Reflection is used in practice to assist with factors, such as NMC Revalidation, support and enhance safe practice, improve skills and knowledge and enable professional development. Reflection is significant in practice because nurses are accountable for their patient’s specific requirements. There are numerous skills required for reflection to work, which are known as self-awareness, description, critical analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. The reflection process is carried out through many different models of reflection, for example, Gibbs (1988) Model, which is used as a guide to examine the critical incident.
Through the process of nurturing care, Hall states that the patient is more likely to examine themselves as a whole and make greater strides toward recovery (Touhy & Birnbach, 2005; as cited in Touhy & Birnbach, 2005). In addition to the patient discovering themselves, the nurse who discovers his or herself can develop trust with the patient as well so that they can work with them, not for or at them (Touhy & Birnbach, 2005). This idea differs from the aforementioned personal nursing philosophy in that it addresses the cause and effect relationship between the nurse and patient, not just separately, and it shows how the nurse’s actions can affect the patient’s outcomes significantly (Touhy & Birnbach, 2005). Summed up, Hall theorizes that the “role of professional nursing was enacted through the provision of care that facilitates the interpersonal process and invited the patient to learn to reach the core of his difficulties while seeing him through the cure that is possible” (Touhy & Birnbach, 2005,

This part of the paper will explain what a CNA is and what task is safely delegated inside their scope of practice. A certified nursing assistant (CNA) is a healthcare professional who assists patients with various healthcare needs, under the direct supervision of a registered nurse(RN), or a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Responsibilities of nursing assistants vary from state to state, but for the most part they play an integral role in the health care process.
