Bloom's Taxonomy and Nursing Education NUR/427 March 18, 2013 Effectively caring for and educating patients with chronic illnesses involves understanding the patient’s unique health situation and concerns. Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues developed Bloom’s Taxonomy a classification of learning objectives within education. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy as a framework to develop a lesson plan and measurable educational objectives will ensure that all facets of the patient’s health needs are addressed in the educational phase of nursing care. The taxonomy consists of three domains; cognitive, affective, and psychomotor that must be followed in a step-by-step process to ensure mastery of each domain. Bloom’s Taxonomy According to Merriam-Webster, taxonomy refers to the classifications of general principles (Merriam-Webster, 2013).

Conclusions. We conclude that oral shift reporting may be an important learning opportunity. This is especially true when nursing students engage in professional discussions with their colleagues and superiors. Our ﬁndings suggest solutions to improve the learning value of the oral shift reporting process for nursing students. Relevance to clinical practice.
This paper will provide understanding of the theory of nursing, key concepts of the theory of comfort, and how these concepts and theories are relatable to current nursing leadership. The Importance of Nursing Theory Nursing theory is a key component of effective nursing. Nursing theory establishes principles, rationales, and helps enhance overall knowledge of nursing (Davidson, 2012). The common question that arises in nursing school is “Why do we need to learn nursing theories?”. Although it may seem cumbersome to learn, having a firm understanding and knowledge of nursing theory will one day allow the student nurse to develop a nursing theory of their own.
Patient education should be personalized and suitable to the educational level of the patient, treatment, and management requirements of the diagnosed disease to promote active involvement from the patient in their plan of care. Together, the nursing process and Bloom’s taxonomy help with the development of educational plans to stimulate patient participation. Cognitive Domain A nurse must first assess the patient’s intellectual aptitude to effectively allocate medical knowledge. Clark (2013) stated, “Cognitive domain is the recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills” (2). The cognitive domain includes six categories that must follow sequential order before moving to the next stage.
Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education and its use in Nursing Education Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education research was conducted to allow staff members to more clearly understand the patient’s situation and think more critically in preventing patient complications. Using Bloom’s framework and guiding staff members to review current documentation with data in small segments would allow staff members to focus on the important clues and draw accurate conclusions (Larkin & Burton, 2008). This framework allows the instructor to measure the outcomes of the educational activity while moving the learners from basic to higher levels of cognitive function (Larkin & Burton, 2008). Bloom’s Taxonomy’s in Nursing Education allows nurses to broaden the use of their critical thinking skills by researching the patients care. Through progress notes, labs work results, physicians orders, operative reports, and data collection worksheets allows a nurse to assemble a plan for the patient during his or her hospital
They should know how to talk to children in order to get accurate information to help in diagnosis and treatment. As Pediatric nurse practitioners, they not only take care of the children but also need to teach children’s family members how to prevent childhood diseases, and about proper nutrition for their growth and development. Prevention and education on healthcare is a fundamental of pediatric nursing. Pediatric nurse practitioner is a very special area in nursing specialty, because one has the opportunity to play principle role in every child’s life and provide the same general care that physician provide There are numerous specialty organizations of nurses that work in this area. The organization aim is to provide essential resources for pediatric nurses.
"Furthermore, nursing practice incorporates intellectual and interpersonal skills in the care of patients and their families and emphasizes an interdisciplinary and collaborative relationship with other healthcare providers. Excellence in nursing requires commitment, caring, and critical thinking in terms of mastery of clinical skills, status, and control over practice" (CCN, 2015). When referring to the "person" aspect of metaparadigm for nursing we, as nurses, focus on the comfort, safety, care, needs, and advocacy of our patients. With each patient I encounter, I make an attempt to connect on a personal level with these patients, learn a little bit more of their personal life, and build upon trust; all of which aids in the successful health outcome/quality of stay for my patients. The environment aspect of metaparadigm for nursing, this gives us, as nurses, the opportunity to explore the patients demographics, mental concerns, and safety concerns when out of the hospital; this allows for us, the nurse, to have a better insight on ways in which we could improve their environmental factors while in the hospital.
New knowledge is applied into practice through evidence based decision making, quality improvement processes, instituting policy changes, and providing patient and community education opportunities. With background in OB/GYN, my interest is the role of Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. My aim involves collaborating with other healthcare professionals to provide high quality individualized care, promote health education, disease prevention, advocacy, and counseling to women in a community setting.

A Comparison of the Professional Roles of Nurses In this paper, the nurse’s unique role in providing inter-professional care, patient care quality and safety, cost effective healthcare, and care to diverse patient populations will be investigated. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), J.W. and a Nurse Educator, M.,H., were interviewed, their roles as nurses were analyzed using provided protocol to discuss the difference between research and quality improvement, also how informatics affect the quality of patient care. The two specialties based on the individual interviews will be compared and a copy of both interviews will be incorporated into the paper. Lastly, a reflection of findings will be discussed as to how nurses could contribute the information from the two interviews into their own professional growth and development.
