He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them.

It helps nurses to recognize breach in care that can adversely affect patient health outcome and be able to correct them on time. Therefore, the APRN should hold
It is JFK model risk assessment tool which includes every risk factors of the DVT. The JFK model risk assessment tool evolved through an evidence-based research and it proved that this model is working better than other models to assess the risk factors. Providing a valid and reliable tool for measuring the risk for DVT or PE in hospitalized patients will enable nurses to intervene early in patients at risk. Basing DVT risk assessment on the evidence provided in this study will assist nurses in becoming more confident in recognizing the necessity for interventions in hospitalized patients and decreasing risk (McCaffrey, R.,et.al. 2007).

The article changed the way I think and understand that knowledge is power hence educating patients on best practice to get them back to health or functioning normally is of the essence. 4. In my future practice, I will frequently update self of therapies and pay more attention to details that the patient identifies as essential for recovery to better help them regain their well-being and ability to perform their daily activities.
A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice registered nurse who have received advance training and knowledge to provide health promotion and maintenance through the diagnosis and treatment of physical and mental acute and chronic illiness.

Robinson et al. (2002) mentioned that APN with wide knowledge in disease progress, research, health promotion and prevention of major illness who are keen to share knowledge to patients will help patients to understand more about their conditions. Koh and Ang (2005) states that with comparison to the doctors, the APNs are more likely to spend extra time to educate patients on health promotion and life style changes and are proven with better compliance with treatments. Karnusammy (2006) also mention that in addition to educating the patient and nurse, the APN also actively involve with patients family and initiating discharge. Nurses will also gain more knowledge and build a positive relationship with the APNs.
It discusses the importance of detecting early warning signs and preventing the patient from going into cardiopulmonary attack. Through close monitoring, nurses are able to promote patient outcome. Also, educating the staff and detecting early signs can reduce the mortality rates. Knowing the importance of prevention is powerful as it encourages nurses to be more careful, especially with the risk population. Regarding the EOL events, the RRTs will be more aware of the lack of communication with the family and therefore will make more efforts to address end-of-life issues with family members.

This organization performs intermittently on site reviews of procedure and compliance. This will help to promote awareness and compliance (Reising, 2012). Nurse Practitioner needs to protect themselves by: (1) Caring, establishing a good connection with patients and maintaining confidentiality.

If I were a nurse, I would contact my state representatives and ask about other bills that will expand the access to naloxone. Registered nurse, Angela Clark explains, “Nurses providing testimony that raises awareness of the impact of the opioid epidemic and potential for this legislation to address this concern will promote a willingness to adopt these bills” (Clark, 2014). Nurses should be educated and prepared to address opponents who claim the bill gives addicts permission to abuse. When in fact, naloxone should be viewed as a lifeline to recovery. Clark states, “Reversing an overdose with naloxone ‘buys’ healthcare providers another opportunity to provide treatment, and we know that with adequate time, treatment works” (Clark, 2014).
