She trusts that her spirituality and belief in a higher-existence will suffice for the successful health and delivery of her baby. Also, take into account of economic and financial statuses.

ACT Task 1 As in every job, a RN is responsible for providing adequate care to all patients despite their prior background. A nurse must be versatile and understand that it is acceptable to be different and learn how to adapt to different cultural, age, gender and religious preferences in order to make the patient feel secure about the treatment that he/she will be receiving. It is our job to answer any questions that the patient may or may not have during their consult with the nurse and/or doctor. In this case, we will examine a 24 year-old Vietnamese woman who is studying in the United States and due to cultural beliefs she may not be receiving adequate care for the symptoms she is experiencing. Jane Vuong is a Vietnamese 24 year-old

Although Sandra was not conscious and could not make choices herself, the staff tried contacting her next of kin, when they were unreachable they took matters into their own hands to help Sandra.

I also believe that family members should support their elderly parents or grandparents because when they were young, the elderly were the ones who care for them; so, now it is their responsibility to care for the elderly. I wish that everybody held the same opinions I do so the world would not see the elderly population get abused, mistreated, or disrespected from anybody, including healthcare professionals.

I pray that many of the religion and family values will be instilled in my daughter as well.
