Quality Nursing Care - Summative Essay Abby Smith A8a Introduction I will be using Driscolls model of reflection (2007) to look back and reflect on how my concept of Quality Nursing Care (QNC) has advanced and also how that has adapted me for practice.

Professionalism includes standards of knowledge which is theoretical, practical and clinical. Nurses should be able to share their knowledge with colleagues, client and family enhance their skills to improve quality care and health goals.

This paper provides a description of the education program for nurse practitioners in the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Nursing, widely considered a leader in the discipline. It further reports the results of a study examining the roles and responsibilities of NPs and of the factors that, despite the impediments to progress the practice faces, motivate them to pursue development of their abilities in carrying out their duties and making “a difference.” NPs are proud of being a source of reference for their colleagues and believe strongly in inter- and intra-professional collaboration while acknowledging and respecting their limitations, by refusing to assume any responsibilities not delegated to nurse practitioners.

These principles act as a set of rules and skills that assist in utilising therapeutic communication to ultimately promote behaviour change (Dart, 2011). MI focuses on building rapport in the initial stages of the nurse-patient relationship in order to provoke change (Rollnick et al., 2008). As a result, MI has the potential to significantly improve and achieve patient goals and objectives by identifying, analysing and resolving patient ambivalence in order to promote behavioural and lifestyle changes (Miller and Rollnick, 2013). This strategy seeks to assist patients in thinking differently about what might be achieved through change. MI also has the potential to act as a clinical tool in advising, educating and guiding patients in their quest for change (Rosengren,
This term as remembered was taken from an industry practice which measured quality, time and cost. This was also called “best practice benchmarking” which allowed organizations to plan, compare, and adopt best practices. With further development of this concept, nursing has progressed to EBP, which is unique to nursing practice. Educators must look to pedagogies that use constructivist experiential learning, not just in the class room, but as a clinical learning experience. With the changes in healthcare, shortages of nurses, increase in technology educators are now in the position to create a new atmosphere of learning that inspires inquiry and a quest to further develop EBP.
