King interrelated the nurse and client relationship by incorporating communication through transaction to establish mutually set goals in care. The nurses transact in a multitude of environments with a goal focused on positive health outcomes. Human beings are the underlying focus of nursing care. Nursing care focuses on promoting, maintaining and restoring health, caring for those that are sick and caring for those who are dying while promoting dignity (Leo-Demare et al., 2015). Stress, roles, time, and space are factors that King focused on to initiate the attainment of goals.
Functional areas/roles of informatics nursing include: administration, management and leadership which is often done directly with clinical informatics departments or in conjunction with other functional areas such as project management (Murphy, 2010); integrity and compliance management, which involves ensuring that the organization or institution is meeting all the set national laws and standards; analysis, whereby the informatics uses data to inform decisions, synthesize knowledge and manage outcomes and taxonomies; consultation; development, whereby they help translate user requirements/needs into solutions; coordination, integration and facilitation whereby the informatics serve as translators between end-users/consumers and IT experts; education and professional development, whereby the informatics teach users on how to apply a device or educate the general public or the next generation of nurses; research and evaluation, whereby they conduct research on various informatics topics that impact consumers and caregivers; and policy development and advocacy, whereby they help shape and promote policies at the national, state and or organizational level. Nursing informatics, also engage in: systems integration, information technology security, clinical application support, patient care coordination, and clinical transformation and
Leadership can be defined as a combination of having both personality traits and learned leadership skills, and it is the ability to guide, inspire, motivate and influence other person’s behaviour to set out and achieve optimum goals (Cherry, B. and Jacob, S.R. 2015). Management skills and nurses managers however focus on the systems and structure of the healthcare system itself and have been given the responsibility to co-ordinate and accomplish these goals, such as; time, staffing , problem solving and decision making (Cherry, B. and Jacob, S.R. 2015). An article written by Parand A. et al. (2014) defined a manager as an employee who is accountable and responsible for staff members and involved in the recruitment, training and education. Managers tend to adopt an attitude aiming towards goals that are necessary rather than goals that are desired; therefore managers are greatly required within the culture of the healthcare system (Zaleznik, A. 2004).
Hall noted that a few crutches were crucial to the new standard: the patient must be determined to explore his or her own behavior, and to overcome any problems that become exposed; the nurse must assist the patient to achieve this goal with every action that is performed (Alligood, 2018). The centrality of the actions of the nurse in these scenarios led Hall to believe that the actions of the nurses led to the care of the nurse (at least) equating to the care of the physician. The Three C’s of Nursing and its Integration
Roper Logan and Tierney (RLT) model of activities of daily living (ADLS) will be used to determine what is important and necessary in providing individualised care (Roper et al, 2001). The nursing process involve assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation and help to identify likely problems, develop solutions and monitor results of a patient care. This systematic method will focus on Mary as an individual ensuring her holistic needs are taken care of, which include psychological, social, physical cultural and environmental factors (Holland et al, 2008). A nursing process in collaboration with the nursing model should provide a care plan that reflect patient centred and holistic care rather than focusing on medical diagnosis only and is a problem-solving outline for planning and delivering care for Mary and her family (Barrett et al, 2012). However, if the process does not improve Marys state then it should be re-evaluated and the good adjustment made to correct the
According to the Grand Canyon University College of Nursing Philosophy “the nursing education is built upon theories and research. Baccalaureate nursing practice incorporates the roles of assessing, critical thinking, communicating, providing care, teaching, and leading” ("Nursing Philosophy," 2011). In the event of a nursing care or patient situation, the ADN uses the procedures and steps learned to correctly evaluate the patient condition as exactly a BSN would do in the same situation. The difference starts with the BSN utilizing the critical thinking, management, leadership and decision making skill set to think beyond the clinical condition of the patient. This may not be limited to legal, management, social, human caring and the client relationship.
Concept analysis is vital when it comes to nursing theory. I think that it helps to shape the foundation, and supports to provide an understanding for a need for a certain theory that may not currently exist, or one that needs to be better understood. Katharine Kolcaba developed The Comfort Theory while conducting a concept analysis on comfort. Kolcaba Comfort Theory can be applied to practice today focusing on the concept of comfort and how it affects the care provided to the patients. There are many ways to measure comfort, but one must remember that these measures are based on patients and their perspectives.
Apply Watson’s Theory of Human Caring to Advanced Practice Nursing. Watson’s Theory of Human of Caring can be applied to advanced nursing practice in many ways one great way would be to apply the ten Carative Factors as an action plan and a guide in opening a practice to foster a holistic caring nurse practitioner – patient relationship. To begin with the practitioner could use the first carative factor I helping to formulate a mission statement that included a humanistic-altruistic system of values. Before selecting the practice the practitioner could use the third factor of cultivation of their own self and looking at what their feelings of empathy is for other to help decide what practice specialty they should open.
The analytical results of nursing leadership in teaching hospital showed that there was predominance of instrumental leadership characteristics of nurses, ie, professionals were oriented to the achievement of objectives, definition of roles and responsibilities, creating control systems and reward the work of the hospital. When reporting these studies I can say that the neuromuscular ward nurses exercise leadership effectively these professionals need to find ways to make the management of nursing care see the real needs of patient, combining organizational goals with the objectives of the nursing staff. In short, the nurse needs to understand the process to lead and develop the necessary skills; among them, this also emphasizes communication, interpersonal, decision making and clinical skills and applies them in their professional
Being the nurses the forefront in the goal of deliver quality of care, and patient-centered care, it is imperative to provide insights and action-planing interventions that can direct the nurses to achieve the highest levels of nursing performance. The nursing sensitive indicators are screening tools that help nurses to structure the level of care, establishing the process of how this care is performed, the appropriate interventions, and expected outcomes of the nursing care provided. The competent and professional use of these screening tools provide a save environment for patient care, and the appropriate interventions needed in each particular case knowing that every patient is unique and require patient-centered care. These nursing
1. The metaparadigm of nursing illustrates the collective worldview of the shared concepts of the discipline, which are: the person, environment, health and nursing (1). The nursing metaparadigm is the framework for many nursing theories, values, and theoretical models, which help guide an advanced practice nurse in selecting appropriate interventions established by their chosen conceptual model. A conceptual model or advanced practice nursing theory provides an advanced practice nurse a logical structural model to follow, which is aligned with the discipline’s expectations. Advanced education prepares advanced practice nurses to employ a superior degree of clinical, research based and theoretical knowledge (2).
My personal philosophy of nursing seeks to incorporate the art of conveying nursing science holistically with care and human dignity. The four nursing metaparadigm concepts are described in relation to nursing as a science and an art and provide the base upon which my view of nursing and my personal philosophy are derived. As a nursing student at UIC, I am well aware of the fact that the best outcome for any patient may not be improvement in health, but rather, a dignified death during the end of life care. End of life care includes a significant quality in care and human dignity.
Professional Mission Statement The knowledge I gained in this Professional Roles and Value course is that nursing has many professional roles. The changes of nursing from earlier history to today show a promise to the advancement and development of different nursing career opportunities in the future. Understanding regulatory agency, professional nursing organization, nursing history, professional nursing figures, theories, and nursing code of ethics, my knowledge has broadened in nursing. The functional differences between a regulatory agency and professional nursing organization made me aware of the benefits and services they offer for nursing.
According to Walker and Avant (2011), theory construction involves defining attributes that distinguish one concept from another. Concept analysis can help nurses understand how their definitions of concepts can differ from those of the populations they serve. For example, Brush, Kirk, Gultekin, and Baiardi (2011) used this methodology to determine the defining attributes of overcoming and how individual difficulties may vary between service providers and homeless mothers. Furthermore, this study also looked at the antecedents and consequences of overcoming.
