(Peate, 2016). Reflection is used endlessly in nursing to help nurses develop their own practice this allows continuous progress within the nursing community. Reflection is a method which is used in both good and bad experiences – authorising nurses to look back on what they did well in a situation in practice and what they could improve on if they were ever in the same scenario. I will also especially be exploring how Ethics influences Quality Nursing Care conveyance in this reflection. I can put all of this into practice myself when I start placement at the end of January.
The professional practice model at AHN was created by nurses at AHN and integrates the organizations nursing values, the environment, components of the Magnet model, and sets the framework for the approach in which care is provided (Allegheny Health Network, 2018). Dimitroff, Tydings, Nickoley, Nichols, & Krenzer (2016) condicted a study on engaging registered nurses to create a professional practice model and states, “Utilizing their voices we created a PPM that provides a foundation on which to practice, leads us on the ever changing journey of our profession, and offers a vision of how we want to practice” (p.11). These findings are in correlation with the results of AHN’s model because nurses involved in everyday care constructed it. AHN’s model is displayed by nine small diamonds that form a large diamond shape being held between two hands. Each small diamond states a different aspect of the care that nurses provide or the environment the care is provided in.
The assignments that highlighted this outcome are Discussion Forum 4 and Writing Assignment 1 Health Policy Legislation. They introduced me to GovTrack.us, Congress.gov and njleg.state.nj.gov. Now I am actually tracking bills and my local legislators. This will support my awareness of changes in health policies. NUR-340 Nursing Informatics and the Future Ray meets to criteria for Outcome 7 because it show that nursing and healthcare are evolving, and nurses must help patient navigate available health care options, which require nurses to commit to lifelong
I decided to develop a career in nursing due to the exceptional FCC that I have received at the BC Children 's Hospital as a patient. The HCPs treated me and my family with respect, actively listened to and addressed my concerns and incorporated my family into my care. The concepts of the PCC were introduced to me in nursing school and I was passionate about PCC and have tried to implement relevant concepts while having my clinical practicum in adult acute care settings. I found that due to the high patients to nurse ratio and the inadequate time management skill I possessed, it was challenging to build a good rapport with patients and provide individualized PCC to them. The concept of FCC was introduced to me as the standard of pediatric health care during the preparation course of this preceptorship and it immediately drew my attention.

Hospital wards have been the traditional clinical placement setting for nursing students. Newton, Jolly, Ockerby and Cross (2010) purports that practice in the clinical setting is a requirement to ensure fitness to practice as a nurse. From an educational view, clinical placement is the avenue where skills, knowledge and attitudes developed in the theoretical part of the curriculum are applied, developed and incorporated. Wang, Shang and Jin (2005) asserts that after visiting the clinical area for a week, nursing students begin to dislike the nursing profession however Holsem (2010) stated that the development of confidence during clinical experiences places emphasis on the openness about expectation, time of reflection and been welcome and appreciated. If these priorities are put it place nursing students clinical experience will be effective as they look forward to gain additional knowledge and skills to tackle the world of work but if this knowledge and skills are not garnered through effective clinical experience nursing students will fail to gain confidence and high levels of competency to venture into the world of
Collaboration with your interdisciplinary team in nursing. Why collaboration is important to provide high quality and safe patient care Nursing in the last 20 years has changed dramatically. Even as a young licensed Practical Nurse I knew that being able to communicate with my fellow interdisciplinary team was going to be highly important. Not only for the care of the patients and their families, but to also gather the needed information to stay up to date on all changes in the facet of the healthcare industry. From my experience, you get most of your updates and need to know information from other nursing employees and through word of mouth.
Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership A. In a study written by Liza Heslop and Sai Lu, the authors contended that nursing-sensitive indicators (NSIs) play a significant role in enhancing the nursing care performance of nurses (Heslop & Lu, 2014). To note, the NSIs also shows the structures, processes, and outcomes of nursing care that is why they greatly impact the way how nursing care is delivered (Magnet Today, 2013). For example, the Magnet Recognition is so focused on enhancing the quality of NSIs because “they want to achieve new levels of quality, efficiency and effectiveness” (Magnet Today, 2013). Consequently, the use of NSIs is also crucial with how nurses provide a high-quality patient care.
My purpose in pursuing my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) was to enhance my knowledge of the nursing profession in order to become a more effective nurse and leader in my field. For the past two years I have explored the realms of critical thinking, communication, diversity and therapeutic nursing interventions, working towards these goals. The BSN curriculum has supported these four areas of nursing knowledge and has provided me the opportunity to adopt new skills and resources that will improve my nursing capabilities and expand my horizons into new dimensions of nursing. Critical Thinking Critical thinking is an essential skill that I practice daily in my profession and continuing education. The courses in this Bachelor of Science
Here I cared for women who experienced miscarriage and early pregnancy loss on a daily basis. I also on occasion cared for women following a stillbirth or early neonatal death. During this time I assisted in the planning and organisation of the annual remembrance service. I was struck by the large number of bereaved parents who attended and the appreciation they showed to the staff that looked after them. The experience I gained here encouraged me to apply for the Higher Diploma in Midwifery.
