11/12/2012 Components of a Nursing Care Plan A nursing care plan is a set of guidelines that directs nursing activities for a patient. It details the entire steps needed from beginning to end of a patient’s care. The nursing care plan is also a framework that allows for evaluation of the effectiveness of the plan and it promotes continuity after the patient has left the healthcare facility. The four main components of a nursing care plan are: nursing diagnosis; expected outcomes; interventions; and evaluations. Documentation of the nursing care plan is important in order for the patient to receive proper care.
This article main purpose is to provide evidence of the importance and application of standardized terminologies in the Nursing practice. A patient care scenario will be used to identify how NANDA, NOC, and NIC elements are applicable. Data, information, knowledge, and wisdom (DIKW) framework will be used to create the patient care scenario. Standardized Nursing terminologies are used by most of healthcare settings as part of Electronic Health Records, and represent nursing data, information, and knowledge that can be stored in the electronic systems to be used as a reference by health care professionals. Scenario A female is referred to home health services for skilled nursing evaluation, and observation.
When nurses reach this level they understand how medications affect the body and why they are used and if they are seeing the expected outcome. This leads to the top of the domain which is create, nurses at this level are active participants within the health care team devising a plan of care for their individual patients. The affective domain or the feelings domain is made up of five subclasses. The first of these classes is receiving, at this level nurses are ready to learn and receive whatever is necessary for them to be successful. As learning progresses nurses start to respond to and value information, organize what is learned and finally internalize.
The nurse manager states what, how, and when a task should be preformed. When delegating the task must be defined and then there should be a determining of who should receive that task. Once someone is chosen identify what the task involves and provide clear communication about what is expected and what to do in the event
A Comparison of the Professional Roles of Nurses In this paper, the nurse’s unique role in providing inter-professional care, patient care quality and safety, cost effective healthcare, and care to diverse patient populations will be investigated. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), J.W. and a Nurse Educator, M.,H., were interviewed, their roles as nurses were analyzed using provided protocol to discuss the difference between research and quality improvement, also how informatics affect the quality of patient care. The two specialties based on the individual interviews will be compared and a copy of both interviews will be incorporated into the paper. Lastly, a reflection of findings will be discussed as to how nurses could contribute the information from the two interviews into their own professional growth and development.
These core concepts lead nurses to actions that guide their practice. Nurses incorporate these concepts as they review, formulate, and deliver nursing care (Brilowski & Wendler, 2005). Nursing is a common core concept of nursing theories. Comparing and analyzing the definition of the concept of nursing among theories helps to distinguish the differences between them. It is also important to know where and how theories can best apply to current nursing practice.
We will further consider the nursing skills needed by the nurse (RN) and the scientific basis in each part of the nursing process. The assessment is the first step in the nursing process. The assessment phase is where information is gathered; this data will assist in forming diagnosis, outcomes and interventions. Analyzing a patient involves collecting both subjective and objective data. First, the RN needs to collect the data.
As such it enables health practitioners of all varieties to address healthcare questions with an evaluative and qualitative approach. EBP allows the practitioner to assess current and past research, clinical guidelines, and other information resources in order to identify relevant literature while differentiating between high-quality and low-quality findings (EBP Website) .

At the core of nursing is the therapeutic nurse-client relationship.
The nurse must execute this process through selection, performance, management and evaluation of nursing actions. The nurse is responsible for assessing the health status of the patients. The RN is a provider for health counseling and teaching patients. The nurse is responsible for administering medications, treatments, and other health regimens that are ordered by a licensed provider. With the practice of the scope of RN, there are also standards that every RN needs to follow.
