In the nursing world it has been a debate for a long time and is still current over whether or not nurses with a bsn degree are more proficient than nurses with just a adn degree. The difference between the two is the education requirements. Adn is a associates degree whereas the bsn is a bachelor's degree. There is about a two year gap between the two degrees in length of education. The debate is over which is more beneficial to patients and the work field overall.
Professional distance means the space a professional must keep between him/her and the person they are working with. By keeping this space, a professional can fulfil their professional and personal obligations without invading their client’s space and vice versa. I also believe that “professional distance” pertains to keeping focus on the job while emphasizing that problems that arise are driven only by conflicts about a patient’s care not by personal conflicts. (Manos and Braun 2006) defined difficult patient as one whose behavior is an obstacle to the provision of good nursing care. Nurses always come in contact with these type of patients on a regular basic.
During my second week of clinical, the first day on the floor, I encountered an incident in which I wanted to reflect upon. I was assigned a nurse to observe her teaching. I had observed that whenever she would enter a client’s room, she would introduce herself, which was great, but she would use elder speak to address the client. This incident stood out to me because throughout first semester, almost every course specifically outlined not to use elder speak as the client might not like it and they might feel a certain way and we as nurses, want the client to have the best experience at the hospital. Not only that, but a professor had narrated an incident of her at the hospital with her husband, in which the nurse assigned to her husband was addressing him as “poppa,” she explained how she did not like that at all because he was not very old and that was very offensive to her and her husband.
Nursing managerial identity As explained above our managers experience of their hybrid role can be organized into three separate groups depending on their perceived conflict in the hybrid role. However, as we already mentioned, our research have come to conclude additional aspects of their experience that is salient in all groups of managers as it stem from their construction of themselves in their professional-managerial hybrid role. We argue that our concept of a nursing managerial identity may be a result of how the nurse managers combine their past of a nurse with their presence of a manger, enacting the duality of the hybrid role. As through their identity construction one can understand how they experience their hybrid role as it guides
In this paper I would like to share on an issue that had taken place in my clinical practice area. Sadly this is not the first time this issue had occurred, it had been happening repeatedly. I am currently working in a private hospital and I am the person in charge of Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Our ICU is a mixed together with Coronary Care Unit (CCU), we are multi discipline ICU/CCU. As for now we do have sufficient staffs working in ICU with a balance seniors and juniors.
The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health The nursing profession is considered as the largest sector of the health care workforce in the United States given its membership of more than 3 million individuals. Since the establishment of the Medicare and Medicaid programs during the 1960s, the most sweeping health care legislation has been the 2010 Affordable Care Act (Redman, Pressler, Furspan & Potempa, 2015). Nurses can therefore play an important role in advancing patient care to the dynamic health care setting and some of them are evaluated in the 2010 report by the Institute of Medicine, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (Masters, 2015). The report offers recommendations on key areas of nursing such as
Overview According to the Food and Drug Administration, medication error is a failure in the treatment process that occurs very often and posts a threat to patients. It is clearly frequent and is often avoidable but puts risk to patients. As stated in a report of the Institute of Medicine, there is a 1.5 million cases of occurrence of medication error in the United States every year (Westbrook, J.I., Woods, A., Rob, M.I., Dunsmuir, W.T., Day, R.O. (2010). ). This high incidence of medication error should be our primary focus because medication administration has a very big role and is an important part of the nurse’s role.
In making a journey through history, NL has transited from a domestic to a professional stage, where care is based on experience and knowledge and is moving towards gradual technification of care. Finally, nursing care is now a professional activity, which has passed from a seat of ignorance & lack of professional identity due to a lack of a body of knowledge of nursing, to a profession whose center of study is care, act of exclusive responsibility of the nurse. Nursing Practice today is dependent on specialized knowledge of care, and concepts of autonomy and leadership in the discipline that are valued today. In this way, nursing, due to its philosophical and historical conception, establishes itself in an internationally recognized position, distinguishing it as an autonomous profession in interdisciplinary work and leader in the delivery of care to individuals, families and communities (Malvarez S, 2005). 2.
The Making of a Nurse There are many people who do not know of the impacts nurses have on patients, as they care for their patients physically, emotionally, and spiritually. At times, nurses can be taken for granted by a number of different people. It is usually when people are at their most vulnerable do they see the significant roles nurses play. Nurses can truly bring joy and hope in patients in the worst of times, as there may not always be treatment readily available. As explained by Shalof (2007), “[…] while there may be times when [nurses] may decide to withdraw treatment, [nurses] never withdraw care” nurses never give up on their patients, which is an enlightening notion for me (p. 122).
