In this paper will teach how learn how Bloom’s Taxonomy applies in a case study, how it is a benefit to nursing instructions and will describe each domain. The case study is with Ms. C, a 64 year- old postop open cholecystectomy with respiratory failure. It is stated that ((Burton & Larkin, 2008) “Ms. C underwent surgery without complication; however, in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU) she required extra oxygen therapy. Despite her need for oxygen, she was transferred to the postoperative unit without oxygen.” The nurses did not transfer the patient with oxygen, communicate that she needed oxygen, and it lead to other events of miscommunication among staff members.
Autonomy in nursing practice applies to clinical judgment, decision-making skills in patient care, and quality patient care in the clinical environment. When Nurses in the clinical area practice autonomously, it leads to increase job satisfaction, nurse retention, patients’ satisfaction, and high quality nursing care. The following scenario is a personal example of the graduate student’s experience working in an orthopedic unit. A 64-year-old female admitted from the emergency room, with diagnosis of fever and right lower cellulitis. Patient was status post right knee replacement two weeks ago.
I will use reflection to compare my findings to how literature states it should be done. I plan to show an understanding of holistic care and how it is used in each stage of the nursing process. Holistic care is an approach to healthcare which treats the individual as a whole person in relation to their needs (Hinchliff et al, 1998). In order to maintain confidentiality I have provided my client with a pseudonym (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2002). I based this assignment on Mary, who is a 72 year old lady and suffers with osteoarthritis which is a degenerative disorder in bone and cartilage (Hinchliff et al, 1996).
Each state has a law called the Nurse Practice Act, and a governing body the State Board of Nursing. Nurses come into this profession with their morals and values that is part of what makes them individuals; this also comes into account as they handle varying situations at work. Case Studies Case study#1 is Marianne a 79-year-old woman who was admitted with a hemorrhagic stroke. She is unresponsive with dilated and nonreactive pupils, intubated on a ventilator, and without advance directives. Her husband and children have varying opinions on how to proceed with her care.
Role Transition 1 Role Transition: Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse Lisa Knapp Nursing 200 Treasure Valley Community College Sandi Kellogg July 18, 2008 Role Transition: Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse The word “nurse” can conjure up many different mental images and emotions, depending upon whom you ask and the experiences that person has had with various nurses. There is a good reason for this. The nurse has many different responsibilities and roles. This paper will focus on relationships and transitional changes from the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to the Registered Nurse (RN) role in the nursing process, as well as this nursing student’s observation of
Several times a year, AWHONN hosts conventions and provides lectures and continuing nurse education classes. This also allows for nurses to network with other care providers in their field of interest. The mission of this organization is not focused on all nursing, rather it is only focused on nurses working in women’s health and specifically for those working with women in their child bearing years. (AWHONN, 2015) The Washington State Board of Nursing Commission regulates and maintains competency and quality of nursing among registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, advanced registered nurse practitioner and nurse technicians. The job of the board is more than education.
Reflective account in the ward. 12/07/2012 The purpose of this account is to reflect on an incident that I encountered when working in the unit in a hospital. In accordance with the Nursing and midwifery council (NMC 2010) code of professional conduct, confidentiality shall be maintained and all names and places have been changed to protect identity. I will use Gibbs model of reflection (Gibbs 1988) to help detail my practice in a constructive manner. During my placement time, I seconded health care assistances and nurses supporting patients with personal care, my mentor was pleased with my work and she started allocating me to help patients who needed minimal help with their personal care.
Even though it was a job dominated by men, during the civil war many women had to become nurses due to the lack of males. Even though many male doctors opposed women as nurses, women were so useful that complaints from doctors were soon ignored. Women nurses were very significant during this period of time because they helped save many lives and at least slow down the spread of disease and the death rate. But that’s not all that women in the nursing profession did. Women in this job also provided traditional women jobs such as cleaning, cooking, and laundering.
Patch 1 Developing Professional Identity Within this essay I will consider my knowledge and understanding of two professions within the health and social care context as I begin my career in health service. I will look at the roles and perceptions of an adult nurse and social worker as they are play an integral part together. I will look at how my views have been formed, seeing through the influence of mass media, family views and personal experience, and also how my views have changed since entering university and starting my training in adult nursing. I decided to become a qualified nurse after the work as a Clinical Support Worker. I found working within care that is something that comes as second nature to me, the way I think and
Comparison Question number One The comparison of two nursing positions is a BSN prepared ICU staff nurse and an ICU nurse educator with the education preparation in MSN in Nurse Education. Both nurses are required to have a nursing license for the state they work in in order to be employed as a nurse. Other certifications that are required in order for nurses to care for patients in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) are: Basic Life Support/Advanced Cardiac Life Support (BLS/ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC). These licenses and certifications are required whether a nurse has an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN), a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). On any nursing unit, both of these RNs are able to care for patients, go over patient, family, and discharge teaching, and be in charge of other nurses.
