"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.
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.
Interpersonal relationships is the connection that is shared between nurse and the patients.

This paper will describe the concept of patient assessment and support theory development related to patient assessment that will be integrated into nursing practice. A concept analysis is important as it aids in theory development, as well as nursing practice as a whole. The concept analysis of patient assessment includes: aim or purpose, possible uses, defining attributes, model cases, alternative cases, antecedents and consequences, and empirical referents. Aims or Purpose The aim of patient assessment is to evaluate a patient in order to ensure the patient needs are met and the best patient care is provided. Patient assessment is vital to ensuring patient needs are met, their status is evaluated, and the best possible care is provided.
Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education and its use in Nursing Education Devon M. Jones NUR/427 November 21, 2011 Marc Verlasky Abstract Today’s nurse is faced with caring for patients with more complex diseases and addressing the needs of each patient. Bloom’s taxonomy was developed as a tool for educators to classify learning objectives and skills for students. This taxonomy has been used extensively by educators in allied health fields, including nursing, to structure lesson plans and outcome testing (Larkin & Burton, 2008). In this paper the description of research conducted on Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education and its use in Nursing Education will be discussed, the application of the research conducted in Nursing Education, and the discussion of the three domains outlined in Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education. 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.
Schemas allow the person to interpret mental and physical actions through the process of obtaining knowledge. Cognitive theory is based on assumptions and accommodation on how a person perceives and adapts to new information. Lazarus and Piaget's theories are applicable in the role of nursing. Nursing is responsible to care for the whole patient. The nurse's role encompasses educator, resource person, coach, and leader.
The Framework is to be used by both clients and professionals and identifies targets for both health and social care service providers to assist clients in their daily living requirements. It aims to provide more choice in care, tailored to the individual clients needs. (NSF 2004)This is particularly relevant with Spina Bifida as the condition and its symptoms vary enormously even within the same type and with a lesion in the same place. Often there will be a specialist nurse caring specifically with patients with spina bifida as the NSF aims to have care ‘provided by people with knowledge and experience of specific conditions’ (Lggulden

The nurse must execute this process through selection, performance, management and evaluation of nursing actions. The nurse is responsible for assessing the health status of the patients. The RN is a provider for health counseling and teaching patients. The nurse is responsible for administering medications, treatments, and other health regimens that are ordered by a licensed provider. With the practice of the scope of RN, there are also standards that every RN needs to follow.
