While more research is needed to establish the cause of CLABSIs, and best care practices of CLs, there are some quality assurance improvement changes that can be implemented now. Utilizing evidence-based research, a quality assurance change plan can be implemented to decrease the risk of nosocomial CLABSIs. Nursing staff must be properly educated on the new standard of care, adequate training must be given to the staff, proper devices must be on hand, and evaluation of the procedure is needed to ensure the best patient outcome. Nursing leadership will play a major role in advocating for these changes.
Having advanced nursing knowledge and being able to apply it into appropriate healthcare settings is key when caring for various patient populations (Christensen, 2011). Through my course of study I have been able to study past nursing theories and research in order to formulate a plan that is evidence based and best for my patient.

As a practicing registered nurse I have discovered that patients as well as healthcare nurses need education on improving safety. In the clinical setting, patients should be educated on all topics that are related to their specific disease process or medical condition.
My goal is to exhibit the use of my critical thinking skills throughout assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing and evaluating nursing care (ADPIE). Much of the nursing school courses specially medical- Surgery centered around evidenced based which now I can see how to relate them into capstone course and eventually helping me to pass NCLEX.

If a nurse comes to work to exclusively do the job, the environment not favorable, and non-productive, and there will be no development and growth. For this reason, my plan is to constantly be involved in care of assigned patients, with the health care team.
My personal philosophy of nursing revolves around making this professional experience fulfilling for both myself and the patient through the realization of values and personal beliefs. To make nursing a fulfilling experience involves the continuous search for knowledge in the practice of nursing in order to improve the profession and benefit the patient. In the practice of nursing, the patient is the main center of attention. Therefore, the goal of nursing is to optimize the health of the patient through the continuum of health care. All efforts should be channeled towards achieving the patient’s well-being, providing quality care, and managing and treating the underlying disease condition.

Their findings suggested that Roy’s adaptation theory was an applicable, flexible, and useful model in research and served to effectively guide nursing practice (Shosha & Al kalaldeh, 2012). Conclusion In conclusion, Roy’s Adaptation Model provides clinicians and researchers with a theoretical foundation to build upon. In practice, Roy’s adaptation model provides a systematic and dynamic approach to the nursing process, allowing nurses to develop holistic and meaningful care plans. In research, Roy’s adaptation theory has been extensively tested, generating evidence within nursing practice.
Adding on when nurses are self-aware they are able to adapt to, or positively change their attitudes and actions and to understand how different people treat them and this creates a better nurse-patient relationship. In addition a positive self-awareness gives a sense of continuity, wholeness and consistency to a person. In relation to nursing, self-awareness helps nurses to learn about their strength and weaknesses. “It helps nurses to deliver better client care thus; client gets well soon and builds a trusting relation between the client and the nurse. Self-awareness helps nurses to identify several problems that might be a cause I providing better care”(Nancy Burns, 2005).
According to nursingjounrnal (2005) Middle range theories are applicable to each aspect of the nurse profession from administration, education, and direct patient care. Since middle range theory lie between grand theory and specific situation theory. Most nurses believed that middle range theory intervention are more specific on solving problem and if implemented at the bedside as intended they will always bring positive outcomes to the patients . The focus on improved patient outcome and patient satisfaction will be the future development in nurse theory and middle range theories lend to this development. Evidence based practice developed through the use of research studies and theory will lead the nurse in to the future practice.

I try to be more active listener, validate my client inferences and check for accuracy. The client often enjoys that and outcome is beneficial for both.
This paper offers a nursing view, analyzing main concepts of the professional nursing roles. In any environment where a nurse performs its duties there is a combination of functions. Nurses work as: Health Promoter and Care Provider; Learner and Teacher; Leader and Manager; Patient Advocate; Research Consumer; Colleague and Collaborator. Nursing functions can be also be described by the degree of reliance on other professionals: dependent (based on written orders); independent (when personal judgment comes into play); and interdependent (when the practitioner collaborates with teams and protocols. Health Promotion/Care Provider The role of the nurse as a care provider is aimed at supporting the individual in maintaining their health and help to increase and reach the maximum health potential.
When we speak of critical thinking we are referring to the possibility of obtaining, organizing and analyzing certain information about a fact or situation. If we focus on this first aspect of critical thinking, we realize its the importance of it, since human beings, throughout their lives, learn to relate to the world through their curiosity to know and understand their surroundings. The same applies to nursing practice, thus allowing the nurse to have an analytical open mind that through which objective and subjective data can be obtained from patients, their family and their environment, so helping to form a clear idea of target health that can focus on patient care .It is very important for this collection of patient data to be specific, realistic and objective. Then, the nurse should organize this information and refer to the option that she/he has to reflect on the data obtained.
