In this paper I will apply the Ida Jean Orlando’s Nursing Deliberate Nursing Process Theory to patient boarding in the Emergency Department (ED), a current issue at the facility I am employed. Orlando's Deliberate Nursing Process Theory emphasizes the shared relationship between patient and nurse. It describes the responsibility of the nurse is to find out and meet the patient's immediate needs for assistance. Nurses have to use their discernment, thoughts about perception, and the feelings produced from their ideas to explore the meaning of the patient's behavior. This method assist the nurse in discovery out the root of the patient's suffering and offer the aid they require.
Reflective Essay to Discuss the Nursing Process and how it was Applied in the Clinical Area in which I was Placed INTRODUCTION This is a reflective essay to demonstrate the nursing process and how it was applied in The clinical area in which I was placed. Atkinson et al (1983, p2) describes “The nursing process is a system of planning the delivery of nursing care, consisting of four steps: Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation”. This is a client focused assignment; therefore I will choose a client whom I have participated in providing nursing care for. I will discuss the nursing process, how it was applied and the context in which it was done. I will use reflection to compare my findings to how literature states it should be done.
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.
Watson's Theory of Human Caring Blanca Castellon University of Phoenix THEORIES AND MODELS OF NURSING PRACTICE NUR/403 Michelle Dorin May 5, 2014 Watson’s Theory of Human Caring Caring and nursing have always been thought to go hand in hand. For the most part individuals choose this profession for their desire to help and care for other people. Caring as a fundamental concept has led to the development of several caring theories. In this paper I will be discussing Jean Watson’s theory of human caring. I will be describing the major concepts of Jean Watson’s theory and I will be applying Jean Watson’s theory to my own nurse/ patient relationships and describe the caring moments that took place.
Kozier and Erb (2007) defined nursing theory as providing direction and guidance in structuring profession nursing practice, education, and research while providing differentiation from other disciplines and serving as a template for the assessment, intervention, and evaluation of nursing care [ (Kozier, Erb, Snyder, & Berman, 2007) ]. The spectrum of nursing theory encompasses four metaparadigms consisting of the patient, environment, health, and nursing, with the focus of nursing centering on the patient [ (Kozier, Erb, Snyder, & Berman, 2007) ]. Nursing theory can be divided into a series of specific philosophy, each addressing a different aspect of nursing care with a common end result – enhanced patient care. The theories involve include – needs theory (centered around assisting the individual achieve his/her maximum functional potential), interaction theory (involve the relationship between the nurse and the patient), outcome theory (the nurse is a change force who guides the patient to adapt to illness), and caring/becoming theory (the patient and the nurse are brought together due to the fundamental act of caring) [ (Meleis, 2012) ]. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast a nursing theorist from each of the aforementioned nursing categories.
This article main purpose is to provide evidence of the importance and application of standardized terminologies in the Nursing practice. A patient care scenario will be used to identify how NANDA, NOC, and NIC elements are applicable. Data, information, knowledge, and wisdom (DIKW) framework will be used to create the patient care scenario. Standardized Nursing terminologies are used by most of healthcare settings as part of Electronic Health Records, and represent nursing data, information, and knowledge that can be stored in the electronic systems to be used as a reference by health care professionals. Scenario A female is referred to home health services for skilled nursing evaluation, and observation.
Introduction Communication is an important aspect of nursing practice; it’s the activity of conveying information through the exchange of thoughts, messages or information through speeches, body language, writing or signal. “Basic communication skills include the use of clarification, reflection, probing, summarising and open questions.” (Doughterty et al, 2004). The following is a personal reflective assessment of my communication skills with a patient; my self assessment on my performance of the conversation will be discussed under the following four headings; initiating the session, eliciting the information, therapeutic relationship and closing the session. ` Initiating the Sessions It’s important the nurse bring a friendly atmosphere to the room and introduces herself to the patient, while maintaining patient privacy.I entered the room slowly as I felt nervous but I happily greeted the patient with a hand shake which demonstrated my professional courtesy and introduced myself as a nursing student. I closed the door behind me to maintain privacy.
Concept Comparison and Analysis Across Theories There are several nursing theories in the history of nursing. These theories have common core concepts. These core concepts consist of the person, the environment, health, and nursing. Identification of these core concepts lets nurses establish appropriate research questions, develop theory, and identify practice priorities. These core concepts lead nurses to actions that guide their practice.
Nursing Knowledge Through Nursing Process Jeremy, Gina, Krystal, Pearl, Renee NUR/403 January 25, 2015 University of Phoenix Belen Malayang The nursing process is a system of exploration, evaluation and planning aimed at delivering individualized patient care. The goal is to identify the existing or potential health needs of the patient and the best way of providing care to overcome problems and promote wellness. The nursing process has five steps, assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation. Today we will discuss the nursing process and how it applies to John’s case study on page 379. We will further consider the nursing skills needed by the nurse (RN) and the scientific basis in each part of the nursing process.
INTRODUCTION The aim of this essay is to explore communication and the importance of this skill in the nurse/patient relationship. It will focus on different communication techniques, including verbal and non-verbal, used every day and discuss barriers that may arise in any given situation. Strategies will be identified to overcome barriers to effective communication; it will also explain the Linear and Circular Models of effective communication. Communication is a two way cycle that involves the interaction of verbal, non-verbal, and written signals. To emphasise a person’s feelings, thoughts, knowledge and empathy, this describes some ways in which we transfer information back and forth with the patient, (Wilkinson 1999; Wallace 2001) Cobweb, 2011) refers to verbal communication which involves the use of the spoken word.
