Along with defining nursing, the practice act sets professional standards by giving guidance regarding scope of practice. “The overall guidance goals for nurses are designed to accomplish competence” (Brent, 1997). In order to produce quality nursing care provided by qualified practitioners we rely on the guidance and regulations of the Nursing Practice Act. “To achieve success, it is very important that nurses become familiar with the Nursing Practice Act because the health care system is always changing”(Brent, 1997). “Scope of

The professional nurse organization in relation to the promotion and integrity of the nurse profession, advocates for the nursing profession by providing continued information to nurses and the public regarding nursing values, professional standards and specialty content
Application of Theory Paper Nursing theory is the framework that defines nursing practice, establishes standards of care and provides the information essential for functioning patient care. Theory presents logical and educated reasons for nursing actions, based on structured, written depictions of what nursing is and what nurses do (Rousell, 2010). When problems arise within the educational, research, administration and direct patient care settings; theory supplies a foundation for dialog. When using theory to facilitate resolution of a nursing issue it guides leaders in the direction of the common goal of affording superior patient care (Rousell, 2010). 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.
Therefore, the nursing process is in the context of nurses planning the care of specific patients, but strategic planning is on the future direction of the agency in the context of their internal and external environments.

It has become a prevalent structure and process for nurses to use for the nursing process and in strategic planning as it is efficient in the use of data, information, and knowledge for patient care (Sewell & Thede, 2013) In general, nurse is primary decision
INTRODUCTION A nursing information system supports the use and documentation of nursing processes and activities and provides tools for managing the delivery or nursing care. For an effective nursing information system two goals must be accomplished. * The system must support the way that nurses function, allowing them to view data, collect necessary information provide quality client care, and document the client’s condition and the care that was given. * It also must support and enhance nursing practice through improved access to information and tools such as online literature databases, drug information and hospital policy and procedure guidelines. Our system ADPIE (assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing and evaluation) took these goals into consideration in order to develop the system for the benefit of nurses.
State boards of nursing ensure compliance with state nurse practice acts.

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.
Our decisions must be guided by our conscience, morals, our professional responsibility, our responsibility for dose we care for, and our responsibility to the organization we work for. Critical decision making or critical thinking is the key to ensure high quality patient care, reduce adverse outcomes, and improve patient safety and satisfaction (Benner, Hughes, & Molly, 2008).

Finally, determine if the procedure would pass the "reasonable and prudent" standard of nursing, meaning would a nurse with the same education and training perform the task. You must have a valid order from the physician, documented competency for the procedure, and be willing to accept the consequences for your actions (Anderson, 2014). When introducing the new procedure to the physicians and fellow nurses, a few steps should be taken. First, make sure administration and nursing supervisors are on board with allowing this kind of change to be implemented so that a new policy can be written stating this procedure is within the scope of practice in order to protect the nurses who will be performing it. Mandatory skills classes or in-services regarding the new procedure would have to be implemented for all physicians and nurses that would be directly involved with it.
I’ve always wanted to do something with my life that is always changing and growing, and helping to better others. As a nurse practitioner there are never ending opportunities. There are so many different areas of work for a nurse practitioner to go into and they will always be helping somebody, whether it is to better there health or just maintaining it. To be a nurse practitioner I believe you will need to be versatile and ready for change. You will also need to be able to make decisions, and have great people and communication skills.
