The Roles and Ways of Knowing for a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Through the practice of scholarship, theories, models and conceptual frameworks the Advanced Practice Nurse integrates clinical knowledge into evidence based practice. Healthcare reform has created a need for the advanced educated nurse at the Bachelor through Doctorate degree level. The nurse practitioner has become the norm in healthcare settings and is found in every specialty along the lifespan. Educational and clinical requirements defined by the APN Consensus Statement sets the standard for entry into clinical practice. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Position Statement on Defining Scholarship for the Discipline of Nursing (1999), the APN/DNP’s role of scholarship serves to benefit nursing research, teaching, education, and the practice of nursing itself.
Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) – a master’s degree educated RN who assumes accountability for client care outcomes through the assimilation and application of research based information to design, implement, and evaluate client plans of care. The CNL is a provider and a manager of care at the point of care to individuals and cohorts or populations. The CNL designs, implements, and evaluates client care by coordinating, delegating, and supervising the care provided by the health care team, including licensed nurses, technicians, and other health professionals. Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) – a practice focused doctoral degree in nursing. The degree that is recommended by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) for all advanced practice nurses by 2015.
I will further discuss key concepts of the theory, uses of the concepts, cases, and finally apply a graphic model of the theory as well as modifications to the model for use in my personal practice. Theory Summary Major Concepts In Patricia Benner’s theory of skill acquisition she adapted the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition to nursing practice and clinical knowledge development.
Jean Watson is recognized for her theories on human caring and the way nurses give care. Her theories are used to educate nurses on the integration of care and compassion within the discipline and technology of today’s healthcare organizations to better serve patients. Watson believed that human caring is “not just an emotion, concern, attitude, or benevolent desire. Caring is the moral ideal of nursing whereby the end is protection, enhancement, and preservation of human dignity” (George, 2011, p. 29). With this idea in mind, assessment tools are used by the nurse and physician to protect, enhance, and preserve human dignity (George, 2011).
In addition, we should also offer the good environment and atmosphere for a patient, such as ventilation and warming, light, personal cleanliness, and nutrition (George, 2002).Therefore nursing caring cannot become successful without trust, which is based on good environmental factors. My personal philosophy of nursing includes four things: client, health, environment, and nursing. The personal definition of client is followed by Palau’s nursing model. Palau’s said client is an individual, a developing organism who tries to reduce anxiety caused by needs
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. According to Chism, nursing theory is made up of ideas brought together by associated expressions that characterize, clarify, and foretell phenomenon that are in accordance with nursing viewpoints (Chism, 2013). Nursing theory helps to identify what should shape the foundation of practice by clearly describing nursing. It is essential the APN use nursing theory in evidence-based practice, to provide better patient care, improve communication between nurses, and as a guide for nursing research and education. In addition, because the main champion of nursing, caring, cannot be quantified, it is crucial to have a theory to examine and spell out what the APN does.
Blooms Research and Response Jennifer Crane NUR/427 June 24th, 2013 Gina Stephens Blooms Research and Response Blooms Taxonomy of Education is a communication between caregivers for patient education and related issues to patient care. The research done by Bloom is a valuable tool for Nurses to communicate with staff members and their patients. There are three domains involved with taxonomy: Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor. Each of these domains measure the level of understanding achieved. In this paper will teach how learn how Bloom’s Taxonomy applies in a case study, how it is a benefit to nursing instructions and will describe each domain.
This informs nurses’ practice from different types of evidence by professional expertises that collect and interpret the evidence for a valid outcome for clinical practices in supporting patients’ health and treatment. The ‘evidence’ in EBP requires a blending of research involving patient experience and clinical professions expertise as part of the evidence (Gerrish
Scott & McSherry (2008) also define evidence based nursing is a process by which nurses make clinical decisions using the best available research evidence, their clinical expertise and patient outcomes. We will also discuss nursing’s simultaneous reliance on and critique of EBP in the context of critical reasoning. There will also be discussion of a study done that examined the effects of integrating evidence based practice into clinical practicum among RN-BSN students and the limitations of evidence based practice and an alternate view of decision making. Lastly we will discuss evidence that challenges the traditional practice regarding injection sites (Cocoman & Murray 2010). According to Guem et al.
My Personal Nursing Philosophy Kimberly A. Anderson RN, BSN Holy Names University Abstract The purpose of this paper is to identify and describe my personal nursing philosophy and growth objectives in the context of preparing for the advanced practice role of Nurse Educator. Nurses are educators in the sense that they educate their patients on their health status, diagnostic interventions, medications, and after-care instructions in some manner during most interpersonal interactions. Nurses educate the physician and other healthcare team members when communicating a patient’s information, responses to interventions or special methods to utilize when approaching the patient. Nurses educate each other through the sharing of techniques, knowledge, and expertise gained from experience. Though nurses generally align themselves with a favorite nursing theorist to form their approach to practice, many concepts are based on the basic metaparadigm of nursing: person, environment, health, and nurse.
