We also helped nurses in each floor if they had any questions about how to handle a patient with pressure ulcers. We also did many in services with new products to treat and prevent pressure ulcers.

Nurses apply health promotion everyday to their patients wither they realize it or not. Health promotion does not focus on a specific illness, it focuses on improving or maintaining the general health of individuals, families and communities. To successfully facilitate the improvement or maintenance with the patient’s health we must educate. There are many avenues that nurses have regarding health promotion and that is: education, practice, and research. Typically nurses have always taught their patients how to manage their daily lives with an illness, but now the purpose is more on how the patient can remain healthy and what preventative measures the nurse needs to implement for their patients.
Nurses spend the most time with the patients and it is the nurse’s job to notify the doctor if any changes occur throughout the hospital stay. Without nurses, doctors would be unable to successfully cure the disease process. My vision for myself as a nurse is that I will grow
My current job autonomy is necessary. Working in hospitals and nursing homes the majority of my nursing career, becoming completely autonomous was like culture shock for me. In a hospital you have co-workers, doctors, PT, Pharmacy all at your fingertips for information or advice and just help. Working out in the community was hard for me at first because I was not use to being completely alone. I did learn a lot with this job and have grown tremendously, since starting.

Nursing Theory: Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory and Patient Care Casey Ziegler Chamberlain College of Nursing NR-501: Theoretical Basis of Advanced Nursing March 2015 Nursing Theory: Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory and Patient Care Nursing theory is the backbone of the nursing profession. Nursing theory can be described as the organization of concepts and propositions that are designed for the guidance of nursing practice (Kolcaba's Theory of Comfort, 2013). The concept of nursing theory was first introduced early in nursing school. The basic theories/theorists were introduced to help provide a foundation for nursing students. Once schooling is over, many nurses tend to forget that nursing theory should be incorporated into daily nursing life.
For the past two years, I was working with developmentally disabled and substance abuse population. Most of the time, I was delivering direct patient’s care and had limited time to review policies and procedures of the organization. I identified a few policies with which I did not agree. At that moment of reviewing those regulations I knew that a change must be made, however I was also aware that with my title there wasn’t much I could have done. The feeling of being unable to make a difference in people’s life encouraged me to continue my nursing education in order to influence life those in need.
In addition, I will learn how to work as a critical care registered nurse. Prior to this clinical week, I was afraid of having a patient assigned to me, but I have overcome this fear. I want to learn and be able to provide patient care and distinguish any potential problems my patient may be having. Furthermore, I want to be able to communicate with the doctors, family, and other members of the healthcare team about my patient. This will enable me to become a well- rounded nurse.

It takes an intelligent, strong, and compassionate person to take on the illness of the world with the passion and purpose and work to maintain the health and well-being of the planet. No wonder we're exhausted at the end of the day!” (“Nurse Quotes”). Home Health care nurses are trained to provide nursing care for patients in the comfort of their own home. Being a home health nurse is a demanding job and it requires going through an intensive series of training, and having good monitoring and communication skills, as well as knowledge of medical terminology.
