How does knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing provide a context in which to understand current practice? Identify at least three trends in nursing practice from the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece. How have these trends influenced your perspective of nursing practice? **** **** **** **** In order to fully understand our heritage, nurses must learn our professional genealogy – from how the profession evolved from ‘traditional’ ministering of the sick to the professionals we are today. Our history gives us a perspective in the traditions we have as nurses and a legacy to pass on to new nurses as they enter the profession.
Secondly it will go onto explaining different approaches to interviews which have specific strengths and limitations. Next, it will explain some advantages and disadvantages of using interviews as a research method with consideration to different types of interviews. This will be done by explaining ways in which the researcher may find interviewing useful and showing barriers which can prevent this method from being useful to researchers. The final aspects of this essay will sum up the pros and cons of using interviews as a research method. Gillham 2000 said that interview is a conversation which aims to find answers to particular questions.
The Impact of The IOM Report on Nursing Mariama Jalloh Grand Canyon University Professional Dynamics NRS-430V-0500 Teresa Gaither June 21, 2015 The Impact of The IOM Report on Nursing The Institute of Medicine (IOM) is an independent, nonprofit organization, which was established in 1970. Their aim is to provide advice to all level of healthcare sectors to ensure that effective healthcare policies are being implemented. In the late 2010, IOM released a special report “The Future of Nursing: Leading change, Advancing health”. The report contains three messages related to nursing, which focus on the following sections: transforming practice, transforming education and transforming leadership. This paper focuses on the IOM report and how it impacts nursing education.
The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast a nursing theorist from each of the aforementioned nursing categories. The following theorists were chosen – Virginia Henderson (needs theorist), Ernestine Wiedenbach (interaction theorist), Martha Rogers (outcome theorist), and caring/becoming theorist (Jean Watson). The education background, definition of nursing, philosophy of nursing, and goal/purpose of nursing will be explored. Comparison of Nursing Theorists Virginia Henderson (Needs Theorist) * Education: Diploma in Nursing Army School of Nursing (1921); BSN from Teachers College, Columbia University (1932); M.A. Teachers College, Columbia University (1934) * Definition of Nursing: Role of
The nursing theory that will be discussed in this paper is the Interpersonal Relations theory, created by Hildegard E. Peplau. Hildegard E. Peplau is a woman of many credentials (Rust, 2004). Her work, Interpersonal Relations in Nursing, has been identified as one of the first published nursing theories (Johnson & Webber, 2005). Before Peplau created Interpersonal Relations in Nursing, she devoted her life to working in private practice and hospital nursing (George, 2002). Peplau was also involved in nursing research, and teaching; this, combined with years of practice in psychiatric
Evidence Based Practice Nursing Implications The professional practice of nursing has transformed over several years. Gone are the days of providing patient care based on habits or tradition. The patient desires for the nurse to provide evidence related the medical condition to support them in their decision making process. Evidence based practice (EBP) is a recipe for clinical expertise. The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact of evidence based research on nursing practice, define EBP, explain the importance of EBP research to improve nursing practice, and barriers to overcome in research utilization.
Once I started researching a career in nursing I realized that there were a lot more types of nurses then I had originally imagined. I have not decided on which field of nursing I would like to specialize in yet but I just imagine myself as a general nurse, working in a hospital setting. A Registered Nurse (RN) is not a doctor assistant; a RN gets to treat wounds, give IV’s and basically get to treat their own patients. Right now my main priority is to stay focused on taking all necessary steps to pursuing Nursing as a career.Gwendolyn Mink describes most Registered Nurses as working directly with the patients and their families. They are the families’ contact with the medical world, in the hospital and at the patients’ home.
The education process in these early nursing times did not exist. It evolved with the help of several nursing leaders. Most commonly know is Florence Nightingale. She worked to change the sanitary conditions of hospital and advance education for nursing. Today there is several levels of education of nursing.
Due to Nightingale’s efforts to develop nursing into a profession and to provide those practicing with proper education, nursing was professionalised. Still nursing was very much focused on practical problem solving with little supporting theory. Even though the theory taken from Nightingale’s writings is seen as the basis for modern nursing, it was only after the Second World War that theory and practice became closer related. In the 1950’s the first theories on nursing were published and from 1960 till 1980 others such as Neuman and Orem followed. At the beginning of the 1980’s a collective view was created on the aspects which were key to nursing being: the person, the environment, health and nursing, also known as ”the metaparadigm of nursing”.
The Nursing Process This paper will explore four peer reviewed articles from the ITT Virtual Library with the basis of the Nursing Process. The nursing process is said to be originally based on a nursing theory developed by Ida Jean Orlando. This theory developed as she observed nurses in action in the late 1950’s. Ms. Orlando observed two types of nursing, good and bad nursing. Nursing care continually needs to be directed at improving outcomes for the patient; not about nursing goals.
