In todays society nursing care for older adults has increased over the years. This increase in the older population has caused a growing need for Gerontological Nurses. GAPNs have a very specific role to play in the care of older people. Geriatric Nurses are educated to understand and treat the physical and mental health needs of older people.

Assessment Tool Analysis Kim Hoang NUR/440 January 16, 2013 Elena Purcar This paper will discuss three assessment tools that evaluate on-physical measures. Nurses should be knowledgeable in tools to expand the abilities of nurses to assess and evaluate clients in various stages and states of health, illness, stress and life. The three assessment tools that will be discussed are the Mini-Mental State exam, the Well Being Picture Scale, and the Perceived Stress Scale. Mini-Mental State Exam The Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) is a standardized screening tool that assists in determining our older clients’ current abilities and disabilities, and planning specific interventions based on the screening (Agostinelli, Demers & Waszynski, 1994). The MMSE has been used to detect cognitive deficits and to assess cognitive changes over time.

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: Steve Early Theorist Selected: Sr. Callista Roy Description of Theory: Sister Callista Roy believed that “Humans are bio-psycho-social beings existing within an environment. Needs are created within interrelated adaptive modes: physiological, self-concept, role function, and interdependence” (Taylor 74). Sr. Roy believed that the patient’s modes of adaption were partly innate and partly acquired behaviors; if the behaviors are appropriately applied there is an increase in health restoration.
To understand the link between health and illness, the physiological,psychological and social aspects of an individual's life must be taken into account. This project will be based on specific issued relating to nursing practice which I identified during placement. While (2002) states that effective communication is fundamental to effective consultation and appropriate environment which support privacy and confidentiality. Bate (1999) observing patients, allowed me to notice the distressing situation that the patients was which make them feel uncomfortable which have effects on their social, physical and psychological among older adult with mental health illness. During my observation in placement I found it to be more applicable to older adult complaining to the nurses how constipated the feel.
Sometimes patient’s neurological deficits get resolved after a few hours or days and that calls for change of treatment plan. How do I know the nursing intervention to perform on stroke patients? It’s through empirical knowing. Empirical knowing is the ‘science’ of nursing, it can be systematically organized into general laws and theories that are used to describe, explain, and predict (Carper, 1978).Empirical knowing is knowledge obtained from school lectures, text books and journals. Empirical knowing focuses on evidenced based practice which leads to effective nursing practice.
