Compare and Contrast Two Nursing Theorists Callista Roy’s model is that of adaptation, which is an ever-changing point made up of different stimuli tailored to each individual and their specific needs. Dorothea Orem’s model is self-care, which is a human function that is deliberate in providing the necessary means for a productive and healthy life and development. These theories guide nurses to use the power of observation and interpersonal skills in doing an individualized assessment of each patient. NURSING THEORISTS WORKSHEET Nursing Theorist | Theoretical Framework (metaparadigm) | Theory Summary | Application to Nursing Practice | Nightingale, Florence | Environmental theory, Theory of practice | Ventilation, light, warmth, and noise level are essential in creating a safe environment for patients. Nightingale believed in treating the person itself and not just the disease.
A Comparison of the Professional Roles of Nurses In this paper, the nurse’s unique role in providing inter-professional care, patient care quality and safety, cost effective healthcare, and care to diverse patient populations will be investigated. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), J.W. and a Nurse Educator, M.,H., were interviewed, their roles as nurses were analyzed using provided protocol to discuss the difference between research and quality improvement, also how informatics affect the quality of patient care. The two specialties based on the individual interviews will be compared and a copy of both interviews will be incorporated into the paper. Lastly, a reflection of findings will be discussed as to how nurses could contribute the information from the two interviews into their own professional growth and development.
The organizational structure at the employed organization consists of the nursing leader’s title with his or her position and rank within a specific department. This structure supports the organizations mission and goal of providing a supportive work environment for the employees and delivering world class care to the patients. A detailed organizational chart is important to determine the overview of responsibilities and relationships to one another with the intention that the right people are put in place for organizational success. The organizational chart submitted consists of the reporting hierarchy of leadership for the ambulatory clinic as well as the hospital. The clinic’s leadership consists of five nurse managers divided between 36 specialty departments that report to the Director of Ambulatory Services.
The curriculum concepts are ideas and/or traits that characterize a successful nurse. The concepts, or outcomes, are measured for future nurses to reach the optimal knowledge and skill nursing professors are willing to give. Caring, the first outcome, allows nurses to perform their skills without bias. Communication, another outcome, is a valuable way nurses
The professional practice model at AHN was created by nurses at AHN and integrates the organizations nursing values, the environment, components of the Magnet model, and sets the framework for the approach in which care is provided (Allegheny Health Network, 2018). Dimitroff, Tydings, Nickoley, Nichols, & Krenzer (2016) condicted a study on engaging registered nurses to create a professional practice model and states, “Utilizing their voices we created a PPM that provides a foundation on which to practice, leads us on the ever changing journey of our profession, and offers a vision of how we want to practice” (p.11). These findings are in correlation with the results of AHN’s model because nurses involved in everyday care constructed it. AHN’s model is displayed by nine small diamonds that form a large diamond shape being held between two hands. Each small diamond states a different aspect of the care that nurses provide or the environment the care is provided in.
Concept Comparison and Analysis across Theories Lori Hamilton NUR/513 October 14, 2013 Georgia Swank Concept Comparison and Analysis across Theories As a profession, nursing theorists have come up with different theories that support and guide nursing practice. This paper will discuss the role of nursing in both Virginia Henderson’s Need Theory and Dorothea Orem’s Self Care Theory. The premise of each theory is the nurse will care for the patient until the patient can care for his or her self. By comparing and analyzing each theory, one will be able to get a better understanding of how to best apply the nursing theory in practice. In both, Henderson’s Need Theory and Orem’s Self Care Theory, the ‘role of nursing’ is the core concept.
RUP 1 Laurie Mahaffey Western Governors University A. Functional Differences The differences between a regulatory agency such as the Board of Nursing (BON) and a Professional Nursing Organization (PNO) is that the BON regulates, writes laws, approves licensure and governs nurses at all levels of nursing and at all levels of care. Its ultimate goal is protection of the patient. A PNO consist of groups of nurses that gather for the purpose of education, information sharing, benchmarking and overall growth of the nursing profession and the patients they serve. PNO’s provide strength to the nurse’s voice as well as serving as an advocate for patients (Matthews, 2012). The states regulate laws established to protect the
Once the need is identified, the nurse has to select required nursing systems to provide care: wholly compensatory, partly compensatory or supportive and educative system. Care is provided according to the degree of deficit the patient is presenting with and once the care is provided, the nursing activities and the use of the nursing systems will be evaluated to get an idea about whether the mutually planned goals are met. By using the nursing process, I will be able to design a plan of care for patients. Orem’s theory works for me because it has utility for professional nursing in the design of curriculums for preservice, graduate, nursing education administration, and nursing research. It gives me directions to nursing–specific outcomes related to knowing and meeting the therapeutic self-care demands, regulating
The following essay aims to identify how reflection in action and on action may impact on the provision of services by District Nurses. The author felt it important to define the two concepts, in order to understand their relevance to practice. It was found by Schon (1983) that reflection- in-action, was a nurses’ ability to understand how an individual was responding to a nursing intervention at the present time; in contrast to reflection-on-action which was thinking through a situation after it had occurred. From this understanding the author established through in depth reading that reflection has been a topic of discussion within nursing, health and social care professions for years (Kinsella, 2009). The theory of reflection has made the author identify the epistemology of reflection in and on action and the effect this can have on her professional growth.
Essence of Nursing Leadership Melissa Frentz Submitted to Norma Yearick, MSN in partial fulfillment of NR 622- Advanced Leadership Concepts Regis University October 1, 2012 Essence of Nursing Leadership Leading groups of people can be life changing. When a person decides they want to lead they have to look at all aspects of their life and how they perceive themselves. They also have to see themselves how others see them. Leading within the career of nursing can also help a person understand themself, whether it is a formal position or an informal position. The essence of nursing leadership has many aspects.
