Being there made me scared but encountering the nice nursing staff and doctors made me feel more secure. I would always ask questions like do you love you job and what made you become a nurse. Getting those answers and having those experiences made me feel more competent about the career choice that I was playing on pursuing. As I got older I began to do research on the field and I learn that it was not only a rewarding career but it was an auspicious one also. Nursing is one of the few careers that not only help others but it also helps
Eventually, I was able to assist Mr Brooks with his personal hygiene needs and was also able to follow the standard procedure. It was a positive experience for me personally. Assisting patient to meet their hygiene needs is a very important part of nursing care (Baillie 2005). The Department of Health (2007) outlined the importance of meeting needs and improving patient care as ‘getting the basic’. Staying with the patient and eventually sees him calm and smile again somewhat makes me feel proud of myself and our team making the patient a happy person again.
In my nursing class, I learned that doctors cure the sickness and nurses cure the patient. This means that the nurse attends to the physical, mental, and psychosocial aspects in the care of patients. Some days can be demanding on the mind and body, but you can still go home and be grateful of what you have done for someone else. I believe that the core of nursing is love and passion for others. Without this love and passion, why is one in nursing.

The contribution of the whole team will improve the quality and continuity of the care and provide the best outcomes for the patient. Delegation and Teamwork It is obvious that Ms. W is concerned about Ms. R so the nursing supervisor should approach her with that in mind. She should speak to her privately and find out the reasons why she is not delegating some of the tasks to the team. There are many barriers to delegation such as thee person feels they can do the task themselves, inadequate training in delegation, and reluctance to depend on others. The nursing supervisor should explain the importance of delegation in improving workflow and influencing positive patient outcomes.
A cardiologist is a medical professional who concentrates on the state of the patient's heart and other areas which may be connected to it. The treatment of this organ as well as the study and research or its function, is often applied by the doctors to their patients for better results. Equipment and Paraphernalia Doctors of the heart often use medical equipment and other medical paraphernalia to help them pinpoint the closest possible factor that may be affecting the patient. The electrocardiogram is one of the most commonly used equipment that supports the cardiologist in finding what may be wrong with the patient. The electrocardiogram is just one instrument among many that can help distinguish the issues of a certain patient concerning his cardiologic health.

Nurses provide comfort to the patient by ensuring that the patient understands the procedure. Providing comfort is definitely within the nurses’ scope of practice today. Nurses are the ones in direct contact with their patients, providing relief from certain discomforts, continuously assessing, monitoring and providing care that will ensure the client is at ease. Comfort is the desirable state that nurses would want for their patients. 2.
There are a number of key points and techniques that involve therapeutic communication and can make communication more effective. Important aspects of therapeutic communication include: focusing on the client, building a trust between the client and healthcare worker, allowing time for client questions and answers, and understanding non-verbal communication. Remembering that clients often view their nurses as the healthcare member they relay and receive most of their information from should be viewed as a top priority for the nursing staff. Time spent with the clients can be short because of client loads, effective communication allow nurses to spend more meaningful and productive time with their patients. Building trust fosters a relationship where the patient is more comfortable sharing personal information with the nurse.
The values, beliefs, and ethic in nurse practice. One of great challenge in health care is how to integrate appropriately our own values and beliefs into the professional practice. The strong connection between the patient and nurse is a wonderful opportunity to manifest mutual feelings, recognized strengths, fears, choices, faith, and goals. Nurses should be aware and sensitive to the patient’s conflicts, personal drama, and experience. The nurse’s spiritual and moral support is a useful tool to promote well-being and contribute to assist the patient to cope better with the difficult life events.
