Compare and Contrast Two Nursing Theorists Callista Roy’s model is that of adaptation, which is an ever-changing point made up of different stimuli tailored to each individual and their specific needs. Dorothea Orem’s model is self-care, which is a human function that is deliberate in providing the necessary means for a productive and healthy life and development. These theories guide nurses to use the power of observation and interpersonal skills in doing an individualized assessment of each patient. NURSING THEORISTS WORKSHEET Nursing Theorist | Theoretical Framework (metaparadigm) | Theory Summary | Application to Nursing Practice | Nightingale, Florence | Environmental theory, Theory of practice | Ventilation, light, warmth, and noise level are essential in creating a safe environment for patients.

Change theory will be utilized to implement the plan. A failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) will project the likelihood that the process improvement plan suggested will not fail. Additionally the role of the professional nurse in functioning as a leader in promoting quality care and influencing quality improvement activities will be discussed. A.Root Cause Analysis A root cause analysis (RCA) is “a process for identifying the basic or causal factors that underlie variation in performance, including the occurrence or possible occurrence of a sentinel event” (Cherry & Jacob, 2011, p. 442). The people involved in the RCA should be the people involved in the scenario: the RN (Nurse J), the LPN, the physician (Dr. T.), the emergency room manager, and a figure from administration (Chief Nursing Officer?).
Lastly, I will share a scenario in which I have safeguarded principles of beneficence and respect for autonomy for my patients. Functional Differences There are functional differences between a regulatory agency, and a professional nursing organization (PNO).

The purpose of this paper is to identify and explain the nursing mission of the organization I work for, Allegheny Health Network (AHN), compare this mission to the nursing unit’s mission I work on, explain the structural organization philosophy of AHN, and discuss the pros and cons associated with them. First, the organizations mission, vision, goals, and values are recognized and explained. A description of the professional practice model and care model are provided for support. An explanation of the nursing unit I work on within the hospital is given along with the mission associated with our every day practice. These two missions are then compared to one another to identify similarities, differences, and provide an understanding of how

Running head: INTEGRATION OF NURSING THEORY INTO PRACTICE 1 Integration of Nursing Theory Into Practice Denyse Collins University of South Alabama Running head: CROSS POST: THEORY BASED PRACTICE DISCUSSION Integration of Nursing Theory Into Practice 2 Nursing is a profession that constitutes both art and science. Carper described empirical, ethical, personal, and esthetic designs of nursing knowing to complete the framework of nursing knowledge (Chinn & Kramer, 2011). The advance practice nurse (APN) aspires to provide optimal care to patients by utilizing evidenced-based practice and a creative means of putting evidence-based practice into action. This essay will explore the pertinence of nursing theory to nursing practice, the role of the APN in decreasing the separation between theory and practice, and apply Jean Watson’s Caring Theory to the phenomenon of concern, patient care. APNs can facilitate the ability to practice both the art and science of nursing and reduce the chasm between theory and practice by using nursing theory as a foundation.
With Orem’s theory the focus of nursing is the individual, more specifically the individual’s self-care requisites. The goal of nursing is to help people meet their own demands for self-care on a therapeutic and continuous basis” (p.369). Theory’s Historical background: Fawcett reports, (2001), “Dorothea Orem RN, BSN, MSN Ed., was born in Baltimore, Maryland 1914. Orem began to develop foundations for the self-care deficit theory of nursing in the 1950’s when the curriculums of most nursing education programs were based on conceptual models from medicine” (p. 34). According to Singleton, (2000), “Orem’s self-care has historic significance in nursing.

Potter: Fundamentals of Nursing, 8th Edition Chapter 01: Nursing Today Answer Key - Review Questions and Rationales 1. Answer: 4. When giving care, it is essential to provide a specified service according to standards of practice and to follow a code of ethics.

Discuss the importance of nursing assessment in relation to the delivery of holistic care for a patient/client from your current practice experience For this assignment I will discuss the importance of an assessment tool in relation to a chosen patients holistic care needs. This will be done by exploring the significance of the tool and the strengths and weaknesses it imposes in terms of providing good care. Based on what the tool has informed the health profession I can then refer to what provisions would be put into place and how the care of the patient would be managed. To be able to fully understand what the assessment has provided for the patient, the effectiveness of it in meeting the care needs of the patient will be explored. I will focus upon the Braden Scale assessment tool throughout the essay with relevant literature included to support the meaning of the assessment and my understanding around it.
