I seek her permission and consent to teach her about medication administration procedure. The consent attached in (appendix 1). Identifying Learning Needs ,Planning and Managing Student Experience. In the learning process the important things to do identifying my leaner needs. Vision for learning and teaching enhance the quality of student in learning experience by providing a support and well-resourced learning environment.
I believe that providing the best possible care for each patient should be the primary concern of nursing. In doing so, the environment is crucial in the meeting the needs of the patient. Central concepts of nursing are “person, environment, health, and nursing” ( Masters, 2014, p.48).Careful consideration must be given in educating the patient about the illness. In early years, the responsibility fell upon the physician. In recent years, the responsibility has been transferred to the nurse to manage the patient’s environment in order to promote the patient’s recovery.
Hand washing and infection prevention is one of the most under stressed areas of healthcare. It is the job of Team A to guide and direct the learning and behavioral changes needed to be successful as a healthcare worker. As nurse educators we realize the basic understanding of critical thinking lies within the Socratic Method, this is the strategy we will use to present the information on infection prevention. According to DeYoung (2009) “In this method, all thoughts are treated as if they are in need of further development and refinement, regardless of how reflective they may be” (p. 226). Our purpose is for the students to have clarity about our topic and as instructors we will hold them accountable for the information presented.
Reflective Account The purpose of this essay is to provide a reflective account on a clinical intervention I was involved in during practice experience. An adapted versions of Driscoll’s (2002) What? Model will be used in order to guide me through the reflective process (see appendix 1). Reflection on an experience is a learning activity requiring an ability to analyse one’s self in relation to what has happened or is happening and make judgements regarding this (Driscoll 2007). In accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008), confidentiality shall be maintained throughout.
Assessment and Accountability in Mentorship Introduction A mentor is according to the Nursing and Midwifery Council a Nurse or Midwife that is responsible and accountable for facilitating learning, assessing performance and producing evidence of achievement or non- achievement of students in practice (NMC 2006). As the main aim in its Code (NMC 2008) is to protect the health of the public and the delivery of high quality care the mentors are established as “gate-keepers” to the professional register. To be able to carry out this task, the NMC further indentifies eight key skills in its' Standards that a nurse needs to develop in order to become a mentor and support learning and assessment in practice. This assignment aims to explain the terms of assessment and accountability as applicable to a Nurse mentor on the example of two first year adult branch nursing students in a Dermatology department. Main Body The clinical environment with its potentially unpleasant new experiences can have a big impact on a student (White and Ewan 1991cited in Stuart 2007).
Comparison Both baccalaureate degree and associate degree in nursing play an important role in patient care but in two different ways. The associate nurses are practically very involved with patient bed side care. The associate nurses administer medications, do the treatment and very involved with discharge teaching. The baccalaureate degree nurses will go deeper in patient education and care plans. Baccalaureate degree nurse (BSN): a nurse with a four year academic degree offered from senior colleges and universities that include general education requirements along with courses that provide a broad liberal arts background in addition to clinical nursing courses (Gooding, 2005).
This allows your new knowledge/experience to develop yourself and others personally and professionally. The six stages of Gibbs Reflective Cycle: It starts with description. In this section, you need to explain what you are reflecting. Perhaps include background information, such as what it is you’re reflecting on and why. This is followed by feelings, discuss your feelings and thoughts about the experience.
The NCNR dedicated areas within its institute to focus just on how to conduct research. Knowing how to conduct research is important as studies were undergone to not only improve nurses’ ability to slow a patient’s illness, but to also assist the nurse in promoting a healthy lifestyle for the patient. The NCNR believes research is necessary because nurses “are more likely to have continuing contact with the most vulnerable populations” (Merritt, 1987). Research is needed to assist nurses in identifying those patients at risk so interventions can be put into place to empower the patient to realize a healthy lifestyle is achievable. Conclusion Nursing research has always been and continues to be directed toward patient care.
University of Phoenix Material Personal Philosophy of Nursing Worksheet I believe that the core of nursing is delivering quality care specific to the needs of patients, families and the surrounding community. This is achieved through education, teaching and listening. I believe that the focus of nursing is centered around caring for the sick and vulnerable. My vision for myself as a nurse is that I will make every decision one that provides an optimal outcome for my patients and their families. I will continue to keep myself educated with the latest updates in nursing to ensure the care I am giving my patients is based on the latest research.
Whereas Kolb’s model is sometimes referred to as an experiential learning model (which simply means learning through experience), Gibbs’ model is sometimes referred to as an iterative model (which simply means learning through repetition). 1 Peter Lia: Learning Support Tutor: Disability Advisory Service: KCL The version of Gibbs’ model given to students may be slightly adapted, such as the one that appears in Bulman and Schultz (2013) Reflective Practice in Nursing p232. It looks like this: Description what happened? Final evaluation What were your and action plan feelings and how what would you did you react? do differently?
