Different countries-- and even different USA States -- have some differences in what a Practical or Licensed Practical Nurse can do. I don't know overseas particulars, but I worked with a "Practical Nurse" from overseas who was only permitted to work as an "Aide" in the USA because of unknown differences in the examination between the countries. Overseas, they are also called OVN, Licensed Vocational Nurse-- vocational referring to the fact these students attended a short term vocational school to earn their OVN status. In the USA, the proper name is Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). They are educated for 1 year with clinicals and book learning, then "sit" for an exam.
Final Project: Analysis of a Psychological Disorder Axia University PSY 270 June 26, 2011 Final Project: Psychological Disorder Analysis This paper will be an analysis of Marla, a 42-year-old Hispanic female. She has come to the clinic expressing symptoms of problems with sleep, a feeling of nervousness, and an inability to concentrate. Although the précis is short and lacks numerous minutiae, my initial impression is Marla may be suffering Dysthymia disorder. According to Kohn (2007), if the symptoms Marla is suffering have been present two or more years, she may have Dysthymia disorder. Conversely, Marla may have a major depression, as the symptoms are quite similar in both disorders.
This assignment aims to discuss frameworks used to identify clients’ needs, and also if these frameworks help to meet the needs of the client. I have chosen to base this study on a 20-year-old female who has enduring mental health problems and is currently being nursed on a low secure forensic unit. I am going to give my client the pseudonym Emma; this is in order to uphold her confidentiality and also to adhere to the NMC’s Code of Professional Conduct (2004). Emma has a long history of mental health problems, which date back to her childhood. She has been diagnosed as having Schizophrenia, which she feels has stigmatised her making it more difficult for her to see an optimistic future for herself.
