The theorist Betty Neuman explains how the whole system affects the patient’s health and shows how the nurses are responsible for the social, mental, spiritual, physical and emotional state of the patient and not only the physical aspect. With the theory, nurses and other professionals are able to provide effective systematic nursing care to their patient using the System Model. Furthermore, her ideas give the importance on how to give the right care through stressful situations and give knowledge and development to the science of nursing. The Model also speaks to coping with unexpected situations through three prevention levels which are the primary prevention, secondary prevention, and the tertiary prevention. Generally, I choose this model
Caring is a foundational value in the nursing profession. Caring in nursing is very critical in order to have a therapeutic relationship between a patient and nurse. Most nurses choose to nurse as a profession because of their aspiration to care for patients. Caring in the nursing profession takes place every time when nurses have contact with patients. Nurses need to make sure that they aren 't there just to collect their paycheck, but to caring their patient.
9. PROFESSIONAL AUTONOMY IN NURSING Nursing has come a long way from being the hand maidens of the physician to having control over nursing knowledge and practice. It now has two essential ingredients of accountability and autonomy. There is more demand from the nurses now than in the past when all they were expected to do was just to provide comfort and care. They were just meant to assist the physician during treatment, assist in the patients personal hygiene administer medication that is prescribed by the physician and dress wounds.
According to Lampe (2013) a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a graduate prepared advanced practice nurse that provides expert clinical care in a specialty population and practice in a variety of settings. Generally speaking their practice is specialized in a clinical area that can be identified in terms of: population, setting, disease or medical subspecialty, type of care, or type of problem. The main difference between a CNS and NP is that the CNS practices in a specialty population, and the NP can treat a larger population. Rules and regulations vary for CNS depending on the state in which they choose to practice. Rights for prescribing medications to patient range from independent prescribing authority to no prescribing authority.
Key theme selected We have selected the theme ‘Resource management’ to be our key theme. Resource management is essential for a nurse leader as resources determine the job performance of his nursing staff. It directly influenced nurses’ health and wellbeing then performance and patient care quality (Joel, 2013). Resource management is defined as the commodities in limited quantities that allow the work of the organization to be performed (Grohar-Murray & DiCroce, 1992). There are four types of resources available in clinical area: human resources, financial resources, material or equipment resources and information technology resources, for example, training to nurses, nursing shortage and workload, and budget for acquisition of new

This assignment is a reflection of ethical dilemmas in nursing practice as a registered nurse; this paper is based on the group assignment which was completed for NURS3004. This reflection will include an explanation of the role that I portrayed in the group, the preparation that I did for the role, what could have been done differently, how this group assignment has impacted me in terms of working in a team and finally explain how this assignment will assist me in my future clinical practice as a newly registered nurse. The role that I played in the group was a patient who has a mental health disorder and I didn’t want his mother to know about the illness, as a front it seemed as though we had a close relationship. When my mother leaves the room I asked the nurse to keep my illness confidential as she does not really understand it. As a group we all decided that it is best for the patient’s notes to be filed in the nurse’s station due to issues surrounding confidentiality and privacy.
She makes sure she is specific on what the clinician has done correct. She also introduces her clinicians to services the company provides through job shadowing. She believes in written supervision so there is no miscommunication and the employee understand what was discussed. The next question was about what clinical consultation means to her and she said “Clinical case consultation, to me, would be the staffing of a clinical case to discuss diagnostic criteria and modalities of treatment (A. Tuggle, personal communication, December 2, 2015).” The next question was about clinical consultation and she said she does not have one theory to clinical consultation. Another question I asked was what model of clinical consultation do you use or identify with in your supervisory experience and she responded with the same answer as “clinical case consultation, to me, would be the staffing of a clinical case to discuss diagnostic criteria and modalities of treatment (A. Tuggle, personal communication, December 2, 2015).” The last three questions is about emergency management system (EMS).
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. Their role focuses on individualized care of a patient 's medical issue and the effects of the illness on the patient and the family. Informing patients about their healthcare and getting them active in decisions is important to care provided by nurse practitioners and this could mean fewer prescriptions and less expensive treatment. A nurse practitioner is qualified to diagnose and treat medical problems like
Framework for Praxis The author is pursuing the Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PNP-PC) course. In order for nurses to be able to assess and manage their patients, they should be able to effectively synthesize knowledge (Higgs, Burn, & Jones, 2011). This paper aims to provide a succinct discussion of the ideological, theoretical, and ethical framework that influences the author’s praxis. Furthermore, this paper will discuss how the author’s philosophical viewpoint and theoretical framework affect how she views her phenomenon of interest on newborn screening for critical congenital heart defects (CCHD). Lastly, this paper will present the author’s graphic model of her praxis framework.
Week Nine Initial Discussion Post NURS6053, N-20 Throughout my working career as a registered nurse (RN) I have experienced various types of leaders. The purpose of this discussion is to talk about a particular manager and their leadership style. Also, I will discuss the characteristic that I will and will not integrate into my leadership style. Leaders are an integral component in the healthcare system. An effective manager must be able to integrate leadership skills with the ability to carry out management functions (Marquis & Huston, 2015, p. 48).
2014). LPN or practical nursing is, “the performance for compensation of selected acts for the promotion of health and in the care of persons who are ill, injured, or experiencing alterations in normal health processes.” (Scheidt, L. 2014). All nursing care by an LPN should be giving under the supervision of a registered nurse. APRN is a registered nurse with advanced education and additional training from a nationally accredited program (Scheidt, L. 2014). The nurse manager needs to understand the different scopes of practice of their employees.
Most patients do not know what advance directs are, so we should clarify the information and make sure they are satisficed with their decisions. If the patient in the last minutes of surgery wants to change anything in the advance directs, we should give them a chance to change it. Even in preoperative phase, we want to teach the patient what will happen after surgery and things they should do like ambulation. As the nurse you should explain what the purpose of ambulation is to the patient. You should always teach and educate the patient about their well being.
