Introduction: This assignment will explore the Roper, Logan and Tierney model used in first clinical placement and will explain how it helped to guide nurses to focus on the fundamentals of patient care. Patient dignity is upheld by using this model following the principles outlined in the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives as will be discussed. An outline of the philosophical claims of the nursing model that guides practice on the unit for first clinical placement. : Firstly, the assignment needs to define what is a nursing model. A nursing model is a model made up of metaparadigm concepts involving the person, environment, health and nursing.
Treating them well and with respect etc. Compassion relates on how we provide our care through relationships, based on empathy, dignity and respect, and can also be seen on how individuals perceive their care. Competence relates to all individuals in health caring roles need to understand a person’s health and social needs, to be able to deliver the best care and treatments based on evidence and research.
My personal philosophy of nursing is based on holistic care which includes the mental and physical health of a person. I believe examining the whole picture and variables that play into a patient’s health is necessary to successful outcomes as well as effective communication. I think of Peplau because her theory discusses interpersonal relations and I am a firm believer in developing a strong, therapeutic nurse-patient relationship. Without a strong nurse-patient relationship, patient’s may not have the trust they should, therefore will not learn the tools necessary to be able to care for themselves. I strive each day in practice to develop strong nurse-patient
Self-transcendence is an example of Reed’s (1997) nursing process, which is a self-organizing process inherent among human systems that is also related to well-being. Self-transcendence theory originated in part from Reed’s knowledge of the basic developmental nature of human beings and its relevance to well-being, and in her belief that nursing is not only a human science, but a developmental science. She believes that nursing should address the inner capacity of human beings for health, well-being, and continued development (Reed, 2008). The purposes and major concepts of self-transcendence theory are considered to be a characteristic of developmental maturity where there is an expansion of self-boundaries and orientation toward broadening life perspectives and purposes (Reed, 1991). Self-transcendence theory propels the individual beyond the immediate or constricted view of self and the world (Reed,
Promote communication is to improve patient safety and quality of care delivered. Assertion is a specific skill that can be used to communicate effectively by any team member to avoid mistakes, focus issues and resolve differences. Every staff member has a right and responsibility to ensure a safe and efficient outcome. The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project developed guidelines that would enable future nurses to have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they
Such as instilling hope, development of helping-trusting nurse-client relationships, promoting expression of feelings and promotion of teaching/learning. The carative factors also support holistic healing of the whole person by creating a supportive environment for physical, mental, sociocultural, and spiritual healing, and allowing for exploration of existential-phenomenological thoughts.

Empirical categories of personal characteristics and behaviours provide a deep understanding of a human being as a person; as a self. In addition, Carper highlights the importance of the "therapeutic use of self" which only becomes possible through the personal knowing. In the therapeutic use of self, the nurses bring as much of themselves as possible to the relationship with the patients and use themselves for their benefit. In this relationship the nurses and the clients interrelate openly toward "fulfilment of human potential". (Carper,
IHI Certificates and FEMA Certificate- Current and Future Practices The IHI and FEMA Disaster Management certificates I completed was, shared decision making, quality in health care and introduction to the incident command system for healthcare/hospitals. All of these topics are very relevant to my current and future nursing practice. Shared decision-making and quality in health care are fundamental components to a nurse daily practice. It is our ethical responsibility as health care professionals to provide quality care and involve patients in their care. Quality in health care is involved in every decision we make and providing quality care will have a positive impact on our patients currently and in their future.
The person is driven by needs, is able to adapt to change, seeks stability, and interacts with the environment. When needs are not met, the person is at risk for alterations in health status. I define health as a general word meaning wellness in all aspects of physical health, mental health and spiritual health. I define nursing as caring for and encouraging the wellness of the person. Caring to me also includes remaining current with the latest research, following a code of ethics, assisting with research, providing the best care possible and maintaining patient safety.
The Organizational Systems class provided me with the information and skills needed to understand the roles of the different regulatory agencies. It also provided me with the Nursing Code of Ethics and Nursing Scope of Practice which constitutes a practical guide on the high quality of care, ethical, moral and legal aspects of nursing safe professional practice, in which I base my daily nursing professional practice. From the Professional roles and Values class, I learned leadership and delegation skills, as well as the importance of good and effective
