Her dedication and commitment to the underserved residents of Montgomery County are unparalleled. Shenita is the ideal candidate for this scholarship.
Finkelman, describes power as the ability to influence others and their decisions (2012). Based on Finkelman’s description of power I would consider myself as a powerful nurse. Often as a registered nurse, I have to utilize the power of persuasion through education and patient empowerment to convince and promoted healthy behavior changes to decrease re-hospitalizations. Furthermore, as an employee I am on a quality and improvement committee that meets monthly to identify ways the hospital can improve quality care, reduce cost, and implement evidenced bases cares/interventions. In comparison with my previous hospital employers it is my personal opinion that my employer is considered a safe place for nursing when it comes to patient to
The application of theoretic knowledge has to be well structured during nursing care.

All five steps of the nursing process, which is assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementing and evaluation occur simultaneously.

Develops therapeutic nursing interventions which may impact healthcare outcomes for individuals, families, populations, and/or systems (i.e. rural and underserved areas). My PowerPoint demonstrates how the concepts from The Quality Caring Model © can facilitate the provision of quality patient care by using therapeutic nursing interventions.

Timmins & Kelly (2008)stated that through this aspect, the patients and nurses work together in order to create holistically and achievable care that is person-centred and individualised. There are four steps in the nursing process, which are assessing, planning, implementation, and evaluation (APIE). Under these steps, the cyclical and systematic guide is used in order to assist nurses in the process of delivering quality and patient centred care. However, in 1974, a fifth step diagnosis was introduced by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association in the nursing process but the UK follows the four steps framework.

This paper will discuss the influence and function of the differentiated essential competencies (DECs) for graduates of Texas nursing programs. It will outline the competencies of each nursing educational level, mainly, the associate degree nursing (ADN) and the baccalaureate degree nursing (BDN) programs. These competencies were revised and approved by the Texas board of nursing (TX BON) to assure public safety.

The DECs have twenty-five competencies grouped under four main nursing roles.
