Climbing up the ladder to achieve a master degree in nursing will be the first commendable achievement. I firmly believe that an educated and empowered nurse provides the best nursing care at all times. Similarly, I would carry out numerous research projects in the field of nursing to determine the primary causes of common illness. It is indeed prudent to note that achieving all these things requires the support of all the stakeholders in the nursing
The Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies was selected to direct toward succeeding in patient care delivery. Nurses profession always revolved around the wellbeing of patients and their caregiver. By having these competencies in place, it helps develop a more focused view for the nurse to successfully achieve her goal and commitment to our profession. It combines all aspects possible to ensure the nurse's knowledge is supported to deliver best outcomes for the patient. The Core Competencies should be integrated into the nurse’s everyday work experience alongside continuous education.
Nursing education provides the nursing theories and practical training for the students to help them learn the knowledge of nursing and their duties, in order to protect patient safety and the safety of the public. Nursing school education also set up the classes of the nursing professionals that share their own experience in nursing life. It let the nursing students acknowledge how influential the take care of the patients is that little mistake will make huge damage/harm to patients or to the public. In order to ensure that students have the competence and are ready to be in work, the school has the exam process to test the students. All the education programs help to produce the professional nurses for the public and all take the responsibility of teaching and testing the students
Therefore, the community midwife should supply the pregnant women with appropriate information. (Pendleton, 2015) In order to be successful, the midwife has to use her knowledge and skills. She must also be aware and follow the NMBI guidelines. Additionally if there is an emergency outside the hospital, or wherever the midwife works, she is obliged to help and do her best in the environment that she is in. ‘In an emergency situation, or any situation where something occurs that is outside your scope of practice, you must continue to provide care.’ (Practice Standards for Midwives, 2015) Similarly, if there are students on duty, the responsibility of the midwife is to supervise everything that they do and check their documentations.
Alligood, M. (2010). Family Healthcare With King's Theory of Goal Attainment. Nursing Science Quarterly, 23(2), 99-104. doi:10.1177/0894318410362553 Martha Alligood provides an in-depth analysis of King’s theory that was chosen as the topic for this paper. The academic journal written by Martha Alligood, RN, PhD, affiliated with East Carolina University, explains how beneficial Imogene King’s Theory of Goal Attainment is used in nursing practice. This theory helps nurses create a plan of care for patients with family inclusion.
As noted by the variables just mentioned, the nurses specifically wanted a leadership and organizational structure that supported Participatory involvement, as well as flexibility for work scheduling and personal/professional development. In addition, nurses wanted to work in an institution that had a clearly defined professional practice model that used the skills and knowledge of the professional nurse. Today, many health institutions have been accredited in accordance with the criteria of the Magnet Registration program by the American Nurses Credentialing Centre (ANCC) within the ANA (ANCC, 2011) In (Yıldırım, Kısa & Hisar, 2012). Aiken and colleagues (1994) examined mortality rates in 39 Magnet hospitals and 195 control hospi¬tals using multivariate matched control sampling. Magnet hospitals had a significantly lower mortality rate (4.6% lower) for Medicare patients than that of control hospitals.
The best way to understand the current practice of nursing is to be aware of its history which provide the evolution of nursing care as well as offer the sine qua non of nursing. After I review the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece, I recognized some trends. One of the trends in the nursing practice from the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece is education. More and more nursing facilities require nursing providers to have baccalaureate. According to Goeschel (2011) " Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression.".
Registered nurses need evidence-based gerontological nursing knowledge and skills to practice successfully in today’s health care environment (NGNA, n.d.). Raising the standards of nursing care for older adults through pre-license education and continuing education for practicing nurses will prepare nurses to deliver appropriate care for older adults to age with optimal function, comfort, respectful care and dignity (NGNA, n.d.). Recommendations for Pre-license Registered Nurse programs: • Develop program outcomes and curricula that incorporate the Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for the Nursing Care of Older Adults (2010) for teaching gerontological nursing evidence-based practice across didactic and clinical
With the knowledge and skill, this can ensure safe and effective nursing care deliver to the patient. Some more, with the continuous receive education from e-Learning, it can train nurses acquire specialized skill for professional. Finally it can help in career development by increase their opportunity to upgrade their position for chance of promotion by change from junior nurse to senior nurse and then became nurse manager. This can maintain high standard of nursing by continuing update their knowledge and shape their own destiny. Study conducted by Sister Rosemary Donley,2008 show career ladder continuum links academic progression to the development and demonstration of clinical and professional competence and to advancement in the workplace.
They also may face a higher risk of being involved in a situation that could lead to disciplinary charges or malpractice litigation. It is essential for nurses to understand and practice moral and ethical principles in their practice for the safe performance and the best patient outcomes. Ethical Dilemma of Value, Beliefs, and Perspectives During my first semester of nursing school, I experienced ethical dilemma. It was our first day in a clinical setting at the Avalon Health Care facility, a comprehensive, Medicare-certified, care facility that includes senior living, rehabilitation therapy, and hospice services. One of my classmates and I were assigned for the preceptorship to the experienced nurse on the rehabilitation floor, where patients receive personalized treatment plans to help them through their illness process.
