Each nurse demonstrated that teambuilding is important because it helps to provide better patient care by utilizing the expertise of the other disciplines and allowing collaborative efforts to resolve patient problems. Teambuilding also includes relationship building. As stated by the nurse midwife, she establishes a relationship with the labor nurses, which also enhances patient care. The particular care applied through these particular nursing practices, across the board, are direct patient-centered care with the exception of the infection control nurse. Her care is not directly with the patient, but her job effects the patient directly.
The ability of nurses to respond, preform, and resolve issues accordingly in nursing care situations can be attributed to the use of theory. Nursing theory propounds enhanced problem solving abilities for those who know and practice it with the result of better decision making that is organized and purposeful (Abdellah, 2014). According to Abdellah (2014), in order to execute quality nursing care, the ability to identify and solve overt and covert nursing issues is fundamental. Application of a theory to address and resolve challenges within the nursing profession can be employed through health policy, institutional and operational dilemmas, and within the management of nursing care services. There are several disciplines that comprises a theory which includes middle range, grand, or practice nursing theories.
The nurses and physicians acknowledged the fact that there are substantial advantages for physicians and nurse practitioners to work together.

In order to provide quality care, communication between the physicians and nurse practitioners is of utmost importance (Fairman,
Getting to the Goal Krystal McKeever HCS/301 Undergraduate Nursing Studies September 17, 2012 Barbara A. Deets Getting to the Goal Developing goals and sticking with those goals helps to achieve success. According to Hills (2011), “effective goal setting is an important practice management tool and personal development strategy that many individuals credit for their success” (p. 159). Many people develop goals in their professional and personal lives; starting with a short- term goal and leading into a long-term goal. In setting these goals, I will determine the skills needed to achieve my goal, the milestones I will need to accomplish, what barriers I may run into, and how I will overcome those barriers. With set goals, I will learn
Secondly there's Career mobility which means, Once you become a registered nurse (RN), you can take your career in other directions, too. You could work on the front lines in trauma care or in the justice system as a legal nurse consultant. You can work as a teacher, a writer, or as a researcher (I.e. interact with children or the elderly and work directly with patients or direct a health care agency). The opportunities are virtually unlimited especially for nurses who continue to learn and educate themselves in their fields of interest.
Provision nine states that a nurse is responsible for articulating nursing values and maintaining integrity of the profession (Martha D.M. Fowler, 2010). This can be accomplished by becoming a mentor for nurses who have just graduated. I could sign up to be a preceptor and really share with the new nurse the values of nursing, as well as demonstrate the integrity and core values of the profession. I could easily go through each of the nine provisions to the ANA Code of Ethics and demonstrate how I can use each one in my daily life as a registered nurse.
Vision for the future of nursing NUR 391 September 3, 2012 Vision for the future of nursing Today’s nurses focus on care for patients based on evidence based practice, which requires nurses to base their care on research based knowledge. It involves using the most credible and up to date research to guide the nurse through patient care. Evidence based practice (EBP) also stresses the use of known policies and protocols that are based on research rather than based on ‘that is how it has always been done attitudes.’ Evidence based practice also has many potential advantages including greater confidence in decision making and better patient outcomes. EBP has also helped with the nursing process which gears specific patient care to the individual based on that specific patients individual needs (Black, 2011). According to Black (2011), “nursing research enhances the status of nursing as a profession by expanding nursing’s scientific knowledge base.” (pg.
Emphasis will also be made concerning how I would change my practice to reflect the goals of the IOM report. The IOM recognized that by enabling nurses to practice to the full extent of their education, training, and competency, healthcare would reap the benefits of higher quality service and increased safety. The IOM viewed this simply as recruitment of nursing’s traditional strengths as professionals. (IOM,
The challenge of entering into a vigorous program such as DNP will allow me to continue to enhance my skills and help me reach my career goal as an APN. I have what it takes to succeed based on my nursing and critical care experience. I want to continue to grow in nursing profession where there is learning, growing and giving back.
