The Roy Adaptation Model Sister Callista Roy: Background Credentials, Title of Nursing Model, Reason for Development, and Classification of Theory Development by the Nursing Community Background credentials. Nursing theorist, Sister Callista Roy, was raised in Los Angeles, California where she became a member of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet (Phillips, 2006b). Her career in nursing started when she earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Mount Saint Mary’s college in 1963, followed by a master’s degree in nursing from the University of California in 1966. She then studied sociology at the University of California. In 1973, Roy earned a master’s degree in sociology, followed by a doctorate in the same field in 1977 (Phillips).
Benner looked at how nurses learn to do nursing, rather than just how to do nursing. Benner worked for several years as an intensive care nurse, then became a nurse researcher at the University of California at San Francisco, where she studied the Nature of Nursing Practice and how nurses gain expertise. She published, “From Novice to Expert” in 1984 and became a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing in 1985. Benner was influenced by the philosophers Heidegger, Kierhegaard, and Lazarus in her life and writings. (Marriner-Tomey 1994) Benner’s model is situational and describes five levels of skill acquisition and development.
While in that position she addressed the question, “What is the subject matter of Nursing?” This led to development of “Guides for Developing Curricula for the Education of Practical Nurses” in 1959. We first see Dorothea Orem’s Self-Care theory in her first book; Nursing: Concepts of Practice in 1971. Ms. Orem later went back to school and received Honorary Doctorates of Science from both Georgetown University in 1976 and Incarnate Word College in 1980. Ms. Orem also received Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Illinois
Running head: CLINICAL PRACTICUM ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS Clinical Practicum Analysis and Synthesis Janis A. Franich Ferris State University Abstract This paper presents an analysis and synthesis of the practicum experience for NURS-740. The issues, concerns, and challenges related to the application of the role, academic nurse educator, are examined in the clinical, laboratory, and classroom settings. The strategies and approaches that were applied reflected knowledge from practice, theory, and research from previous course work of the Master of Science degree in nursing program at Ferris State University and experience as a registered nurse. The clinical project that was undertaken for this practicum is described and analyzed for application to the role of an academic nurse educator. Evaluations that reflect judgments about the performance of the graduate student from nursing students, the preceptor, and the graduate student are examined.

“Watson defines caring as the ethical and moral ideal of nursing that has interpersonal and humanistic qualities” (Alligood, 2010, p.111). She believes in the holistic care of patients and that nurses need a strong background in liberal arts to care for patients. She also believes that nursing care can affect human development. Watson “believes that it is critical in today’s society to sustain human caring ideals and a caring ideology in practice, as there has been a proliferation of radical treatment and cure techniques, often without regards to cost or human considerations”(McEwen & Wills,2007,p.194). Jean Watson was born in West Virginia in 1940.
Integration of Evidence-Based Practice into Professional Nursing Practice In this paper we will discuss the integration of evidence based practice into professional nursing practice. Scott & McSherry (2008) define evidence based practice as the combination of individual, clinical, or professional expertise with the best available external evidence to produce practice that is most likely to lead to positive outcomes for a patient. Despite literature surrounding what evidence based nursing is and isn’t, nurses struggle to get evidence into practice. Many reasons have been reported including a lack of understanding about evidence based nursing means. Scott & McSherry (2008) also define evidence based nursing is a process by which nurses make clinical decisions using the best available research evidence, their clinical expertise and patient outcomes.
Running Head: CLINICAL NURSE LEADER ROLE Exploring the Role of the Clinical Nurse Leader Natalie D. Haslem University of South Alabama In this article, the role, history and future of the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) will be reviewed and analyzed. A conceptual model will be referenced to explain the role of the CNL. The master’s level degree is required for a CNL. This graduate degree prepares the nurse to be a leader in the acute care setting and all settings (Chism, 2013). The CNL assesses patient outcomes, assesses the possibility of loss or injury, brings the best practice evidence to the bedside, and improves the overall collaboration of care across the interdisciplinary team (Moore and Leahy, 2012).

The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60). After observing the available options and doing research of the three different programs I decided to attend an AD program at Keiser University. The reason I went this route was because in two years of nursing education it permitted me start working in the clinical setting as a nurse. On April, 2015 I graduated Keiser University Orlando, and on May 2015 I obtained my RN licensure from the state of
