I have enjoyed reading your post, Brooke. I found your comment on how evidence based practice is applied in your pediatric practice to be informative and educational. I like how you have briefly explained the importance of nursing structure, process, and outcomes to an ideal work environment and to an optimal health care delivery.

My Mission Statement: My mission is to motivate, inspire, and commit, to my family, and freedom for individuals, families and colleagues. When constructing my mission statement I found it a little challenging, because I felt like I had to search within myself and what aspired me thus far. As nurses may aspire at least one person a day, and to me that’s all that counts.
Nurse Advocacy Student nurses and nurses spend majority of their time dedicating themselves to patient safety and quality of care. They do patient education, administer medications, perform head to toe assessments, but most importantly, they possess effective communication skills by listening to their patients. This is important because it allows the nurse to understand the concerns of their patients and advocate for their rights. According to the American Nurses Association (ANA), advocacy is when one uses his or her position to protect, support, or speak out for the rights and interests of another.” (Sanford, 2012).
for Introduction: “Discuss why a sociological perspective is important for nurses/midwives to adopt in their nursing/midwifery practice.” What is the relevance in studying sociology and how can one make use of their knowledge in clinical practice? Sociology outlines how our society developed, is structured and how it functions. It is the study of human society and the behaviour of us in it. (Crossman, 2017)
Authors in this article asserted the position of American Nurses Association (ANA) in addressing disparities in the health care system. Because there is a social contract between the nursing profession and society, nurses continue to strive to fit the profession in meeting the public health care needs. Aware of the social change and multi-cultural presence in the United States, ANA appointed 40 expert nurses to revise the 2010 nursing scope and practice to include the cultural competency aspects. The result was the addition of the Standard 8: Culturally Congruent Practice.

A vital part of the nursing profession is nursing research. Clinical questions for specific patient problems are identified so that healthcare providers can find clinically relevant information using Internet search engines and databases (Higgins & Green, 2009). The main principle of nursing research is to produce new knowledge. The primary function of evidence based practice is to make evaluations about patient care built around the most current and best evidence that was collected by a systematic problem solving method. This paper will discuss hypothyroidism in pregnant women, and the risk fact of miscarriage during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Registered nurses (RNs) currently are the principal group of health providers in the world. In Australia, there are over 331,000 registered RNs. Presently, most RNs are female, and even though increasing numbers of men are entering the profession, less than 5 per cent are male.
