Strategic planning includes six steps: prepare, assess, create, communicate, implement, and evaluate (Hebda & Czar, 2013). In the other hand, nursing process provides an organizing framework for the practice of nursing and knowledge, judgment, and actions that nurses bring to patient care. It consists of five phases: assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation. (Lewis, Heitkemper, Dirksen, & O'brien, 2007). 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.
This assignment will focus on development and awareness of the legal, ethical and professional issues associated with accountability in health care. The theme identified is record keeping. According to NMC, (2009), ‘record keeping is essential part of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health professionals’ practice and is necessary to the provision of safe and effective care. Records include anything that makes reference to the care of patient and any record can be called as evidence. NMC, (2009), states that, ‘ good record keeping helps to improve accountability and shows how decisions related to patient care were made’ and the courts of law approach to record keeping tends to be that, “if it is not recorded, it has not been done”.
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.

However, those in nursing can be distinguished by its emphasis on relationships, collaborative care and human dignity.” Legal and ethical issues can intertwine and can vary from person to person. The issues faced by nurses in their practice are based on what the individual believes is right or wrong and according to Guido (2010) ethics embodies a process of establishing standards of conduct and moral judgment. The chief ideologies of healthcare ethics that must be supported in every day clinical practice are beneficence, nonmaleficence, autonomy, and justice. Beneficence means promoting actions that are beneficial. Nurses work to foster what is best for their clients and attempt to achieve optimal outcomes.
2) They identify structures of care and care processes, which influence patient care outcomes. (Montalvo, 2007, para. 3) Structural indicators are comprised of the supply, skill, education and certification of the nursing staff. Process indicators measure nursing assessment, intervention and job satisfaction. Outcome indicators reflect patient outcomes that are most influenced by nursing care.
Application of Theory to Nurse Staffing Monet J. Scott Chamberlain College of Nursing NR: 501 Theoretical Basis Advance Nursing June 2015 Application of Theory to Nurse Staffing Theories guide the nursing practice in the sense that they may be used to express viewpoints and orientations to the foundational characteristics of the nursing profession. This has a profound impact on the way nursing is practiced in every clinical situation. Theories are also used to comprehend and analyze certain situations resulting in effective nursing approaches and essentials to carry out quality nursing care. Nursing theories are not exclusive to practical and tactile patient care situations but they are also valuable in problem solving. The ability of nurses to respond, preform, and resolve issues accordingly in nursing care situations can be attributed to the use of theory.
Let us also examine as to how the practice of nursing is expected to shift based on the concepts of continuum of care, accountable care organizations (ACO’s) medical health homes (MHH), nurse-managed health care clinics (NMHCs). Taking a composite approach to patient care, nurses today are expected to handle a
Nursing informatics I think that informatics in nursing is focused on both information management and communication. The use of health IT is already essential to delivering care, recording data, and measuring care. The American Nurses Association defines nursing informatics as “a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, and knowledge in nursing practice. Nursing informatics facilitates the integration of data, information, and knowledge to support patients, nurses and other providers in their decision-making in all roles and settings. This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.” ANA.
Leadership Questions NUR 492 Leadership Questions In discussion of my own personal views of leadership and effective characteristics of leadership, reflections of a nursing leader will be discussed ensue of developmental competency and transition from an associate nurse to an administrative nurse bachelor. Leadership in the nursing and medical field has different types of leaders as well as different styles and characteristics that require assessment for application to the health care system or health care organization’s structures, policies, and mission. Different leadership skills and characteristics are based on the health care setting and facility requirements and functional goals. Health care systems or organizations functional goals are usually for profit but also may have a mission of service excellence to humanity regardless of race, religion, creed, or gender. My personal view of a health care leader is a person that possesses good communication skills as well as good listening skills, the ability to be neutral and make detrimental decisions, and be able to adapt to many different cultures and internal environments.
