John’s reflective model of influencing factors reveals the key elements which contributed to this incident. The (NMC, 2015) emphasizes on the duty of care a nurse should provide to service users which was not met in this incident. This creates awareness of the lack of basic nursing skills and qualities such as a breakdown in communication, lack of competence, decision making, policies regarding A&E slips and a lack of the school nurse’s responsibility/knowledge about her caseload and children with long term health conditions. It also identifies key issues such as a lack of collaborative working to prioritise health needs and “nursing culture”.
The Department of Health (2004) highlights the importance of inter professional working to optimise health needs of children with long term illnesses, it identifies that this improves health outcomes for the child, supports the family and promotes social inclusion. Like minded, Bayliss-Pratt (2013) suggests that MDT working generates the appropriate skills to achieve better results and practices; an important outcome of the NHS healthcare system.

It highlights the responsibility of duty of care and identifies that when this is achieved, care delivery is optimised. To avoid further incidents from occurring, it is important that the student and the school nurse promote successful MDT working. This is only achieved when there is a constructive professional relationship and a mutual appreciation and value with regards to roles and responsibilities of all persons involved. (Derbyshire and Machin, 2011). In agreement, Coulter et al., 2013 highlights the significance of MDT working and building productive working relationships to promote and optimise care

This provides the foundation for and expectation of future behaviour and practice in the organisation. It sets the tone for the future. Abuse often happens because of poor practice and a lack of understanding about the consequences of certain actions. Therefore, training is essential and talking about experiences can give an insight into what it is like to be on the receiving end of care. 6) The role of the care quality commission To make sure that organisations are working in the best interests of individuals and following the rules and regulations that apply to them, an independent regulator of health and social care services has been established.
Reflecting on the past seven weeks I have acquired countless knowledge, which I will use to further strengthen my profession as an Advanced Practice Nurse. The course allowed me to think beyond my current practice knowledge and acquired innovative ways to evaluate the situation at hand. The learning objective in program outcome four helps set standards that I will use to guide my clinical practice to meet various healthcare needs. Using the case studies has helped to further enhance my knowledge on disease physiological state, using differential diagnosis, disease manifestations, and clinical presentation. It has also taught me the skills on how to differentiate between similar diagnoses to properly identify the problem and treat the patients.
Rhetorical Analysis on an Exposia of Nursing Ethics In the essay “ Nursing’s Code of Ethics, Social Ethics, and Social Policy,” Marsha D. Fowler explains the history of Nursing ethics and what should be utilized in today’s society. Fowler explains to her readers what nurses should promote within the healthcare field.

Khalili, Hall & Deluca (2014) support Ndoro (2014) by stating that there is competition and hierarchies between health-care professionals, preventing collaborative working. The aim of interprofessional practice is to replace these barriers with co-operation and equality to provide person-centred care. Khaili, Hall & Deulca (2014) go on to explain that failures to implement collaborative practice has led to destruction of care, disappointment for both clients and practitioners and poor quality of care is then the outcome. Not everyone agrees collaborative working is beneficial.
The essay talks about the role of the Nursing and Midwifery council and the application of the NMC Code (2015) in my practice as a student nurse. The nursing process was also deemed over and analysed in relation to the evidence based practice and application of the NMC standards. Nursing is a profession regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC 2015), an organisation set up by the Parliament to regulate nurses and midwives from England, Scotland and Wales to deliver high quality of care throughout their careers (NMC, 2015).These standards are legally binded in the NMC (2015) Code to set out professional principles for education, training and conduct as well as providing in keeping up to date skill and knowledge for nurses midwives.
The nurse must ensure that all staff are properly trained, medications are correct and up to date, all children must have access to healthcare, and nutritional considerations must be taken into account. Cheryl’s most important job is to make sure that the teachers caring for the children are properly trained on what to do in a medical situation or emergency.
What is reflection? Reflection is described as the process individuals use for self-development in their future career. The process of reflection has been used for many years in professional health fields such as midwifery and nursing (Lillyman. S & Merrix. P, 2012). Florence nightingale pioneered the practice known as reflection-on-practice, this is a tool that is needed in developing improvement and knowledge to enable an individual to grow in their nursing profession.
The professional nursing values I believe are things you can be taught and some you cannot. Nurses are special individuals who ultimately want to care for and help others as much as they can. I agree with all of these values and believe some I will need to work on myself such as competence, illness prevention and patient education. Others I believe I have based on my experience I have already had while caring for others. Some of the qualities I believe I have include: caring, compassion, dependability, empathy, focusing on the patient- defining quality of life, having a holistic patient centered care, kindness, openness to learning, respect for others their dignity and worth and sensitivity.
Although reflection is an imperative foundation of nursing practice, it is only effective in promoting future clinical practice when the practitioner continually identifies their weaknesses and strengths to support their personal growth. They will also be required to develop this process during their practice to improve outcomes for service users (Johns, 2013). In accordance to the NMC revalidation process (2015) school nurses are required to provide a record of their knowledge and how it promotes their clinical practice. Clinical reflection is identified as a recognised educational tool for this process (Queens Nursing Institute, 2015). This evidence highlights the importance of the the student school nurse’s role in reflecting on this critical
Nursing is a responsibility to provide the finest care regardless of the patient’s age, race, religion, sex, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or their past.

Good partnership working is also critical for building strong, effective relationships within and across organisations. Within an organisation this means taking a joined-up approach to designing and delivering united services for the benefit of service users. Excellent communication and multi-disciplinary team working are the key elements to successful partnership working within an organisation and fundamental to ensuring a smooth running approach to care. The development of high quality, co-ordinated services across different care settings and sectors requires organisations and agencies to work together. This will include working across organisational boundaries between statutory, voluntary, community and independent sectors.

Introduction This essay is a reflective piece of writing about the critical indecent of a medication error that occurred during my placement.
