Elements of a recognised framework by Cormack (2000) will be used as a guideline through the critique process. Critique is defined by Polit et al (2000) as a careful critical appraisal of the strengths and limitations of a piece of research. They state that a written critique should serve as a guide to researchers and practitioners, and should help to advance a particular area of knowledge. The critique should also help those who are practising nursing, to decide how the findings from a study can be best incorporated into practice (Nieswiadomy, 2002). Knapp (1998) points out that if research is to provide convincing evidence on which to base practice, it must be capable of withstanding scrutiny regarding the quality and relevance of the researchers work.
Reflective Essay to Discuss the Nursing Process and how it was Applied in the Clinical Area in which I was Placed INTRODUCTION This is a reflective essay to demonstrate the nursing process and how it was applied in The clinical area in which I was placed. Atkinson et al (1983, p2) describes “The nursing process is a system of planning the delivery of nursing care, consisting of four steps: Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation”. This is a client focused assignment; therefore I will choose a client whom I have participated in providing nursing care for. I will discuss the nursing process, how it was applied and the context in which it was done. I will use reflection to compare my findings to how literature states it should be done.

Evaluations that reflect judgments about the performance of the graduate student from nursing students, the preceptor, and the graduate student are examined. Clinical Practicum Analysis and Synthesis The purpose of this practicum was to provide an opportunity to gain experience and knowledge about the role of an academic nurse educator. The objectives of the practicum were developed using the National League for Nursing (NLN) core competencies for academic nurse educators. The responsibilities for which academic nurse educators are held accountable are related to the eight core competencies described by the NLN (NLN, 2005). The analysis and synthesis will utilize the NLN core competencies to discuss issues related to the application of the nurse educator role, strategies and approaches that were applied to the role, and a description and analysis of the clinical project that was undertaken.
Nursing Theorist Grid Use grid below to complete the Week 4-Nursing Theorists assignment. Please see the “Nursing Theorists’ Grading Criteria” document, located on the Materials page of the student Web site. Name: kisha Theorist Selected: Dorothea Orem Description of Theory: According to Somchit, (1989), Orem’s theory, “Focuses on self-care needs of the patient and is a deliberate action of the nurse who views patients in terms of their self-care capacity. Orem has specified the relationship of her concepts into a set of theories that are interrelated in nursing: theory of self-care deficit, theory of self- care, and theory of nursing systems.

Based on these two premise, communication in nursing focuses on attending, listening, intervening and exploring the contents of information while observing the feelings of the patient (Arnold and Boggs, 2009, pp37-38). This piece of work will evaluate different aspects of my own learning; focusing on the importance of good communication and its influence in clinical practice. Throughout the essay, the significance of different communication skills will be explored. The essay will also evaluate different aspects of personal and professional values and their relevance in clinical practice. References will be made to some health related legislations such as; The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) code of conduct, Care Quality Commission (CQC), Francis Report, Department of Health (DoH), The National Health Service (NHS) constitution and the fundamental values of care (Six C’s).
