Ethical Principles in Decision Making Andrea Franklin Western Governors Ethical Principles in Decision Making The Alabama Board of Nursing standards of practice states in 610-X-6-.03 Conduct and Accountability #1, that the registered nurse and licensed practical nurse shall: “Have knowledge and understanding of the laws and rules regulating nursing.” (Alabama Board of Nursing, 2009) It also states “Accept individual responsibility and accountability for recognition and appropriate nursing action following a change in the patient’s mental or physical status.” (Alabama Board of Nursing, 2009) As a Registered nurse in the state of Alabama I am required to understand and abide by the laws regulating nursing care. In this case study, I feel that is Dr. K is just trying to do what Doctors do and that’s save lives. Dr. K is not really looking at the ethical standpoint of the situation. He was correct in being concerned about Mr. E’s being competent enough to understand the severity of his condition but the brother should have been well informed and the issue of the advanced directive should have been explained and of course mentioned during the initial contact. Patient’s rights are supposed to be respected and carried out.
This specialty internship program will also assist with retention of nursing staff. Career development programs such as internships are an effective retention strategy. Purpose The purpose of this internship is to expose the student to the outpatient environments of hemodialysis. As most undergraduate nursing programs lack dialysis-specific clinical experience, nurses are in need of a strong educational program (Singer, 2006). As the number of patients on dialysis increases, so does the demand for hemodialysis nurses (Dunbar et al., 2012).

I feel that as a student and a later on a practicing nurse I am able to follow directions and am easily able to communicate with people. This is important for nurses are the middle man with patients and families and patients and doctors. Also feel as that I am a true advocate for people and their needs, which I think are key necessities for a nurse. Working with traumatic brain injured people for over five years, I feel I have encompassed all that there is to being an advocate for those in
Vincent Wu Hurston 19 October 2017 AP Literature Critical Lens Essay Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow --A Psychoanalytical Critic of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper Charlotte Perkins Gilman, a campaigning feminist writer in the early 20th century, was primarily concerned with showcasing the societal bonds that imprisoned most women in their marital contracts. Since its publication in 1891, The Yellow Wallpaper has created a huge stir over this often neglected issue. Generally, there are two major psychological critical lenses to examine this work: one that blames the illness of the narrator on the patriarchal structure of the society; and one that looks at medical causes for the depression the narrator suffers from.

It’s also frustrating to hit a ceiling in your career, not being able to advance any further in that profession without additional education. I watch the nurses I work with in the rehabilitation setting and they have so much more freedom to really work with educating the patient on a one-on-one level, use the tools they’ve learned as a nurse to find the root of a patient’s reason for being in rehabilitation, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals in a discharge plan.

Some have questioned whether nurses have lost their way while navigating the complexity of the increasingly technical environment that is contemporary health care. As technological, medical and administrative changes facilitated the advancement of nursing, the role of the advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) emerged. APRNs practice a greater set of skills, often diagnosing patients, determining a plan of treatment and absorbing many of the responsibilities previously held by physicians. Jeanne Lattanzio who worked as a registered nurse at the UConn Health Center for over 30 years including a 7-year stint as director of nursing.
