One extract focuses on the process of clinical assessment and it begins by highlighting the significance of its application in the nursing practice. This significance has been emphasized in my studies as we have been gaining knowledge in preparation for our OSCA examinations and I am aware that we will continue building upon these skills throughout the remainder of this course. The most commonly used frameworks for nursing assessments are described in the text, and this information is a valuable foundation for me to refer to in future practice. The ability to assess a patient effectively will be vital in practicing as a nurse, so this knowledge is valuable for me to refer to. Assessment is ongoing and continuous in the nursing process; and involves a comprehensive collection of objective and subjective information in regards to the physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual aspects of the patient.
This course has exposed me to the many different learning theories that have been developed and how to effectively assess the in order to develop and implement an effective teaching plan. Teaching strategies and plans must be specific to the learner and barriers need to be identified early so they can be overcome to promote better outcomes Although nurses have always been the “backbone” of healthcare and will remain active in the industry, the role of nursing is changing and expanding. Having been a nurse for the past 26 years, I have experienced some of these changes. This course has confirmed my decision to return to school and obtain my Bachelors of Nursing (BSN) degree. With the shift to community health and prevention, nurses are going to be required to have a BSN.
Professional Role Development Plan While transitioning from RN to BSN, I am enduring countless learning, professional experience, and nursing knowledge. I am learning that baccalaureate nursing gives me a different perception of viewing nursing care as not only limited to individual and a family but also the whole community. The professional development that higher education is bringing upon me is exceptional. Vision of Healthcare in Future Today’s healthcare system is consistently evolving with new advances, technologies, and evidence based research. In order to meet the demands of nursing to continue to deliver safe and effective practice, positive patient outcomes, nurses are challenged to stay on top of the industry by continuing education.
My studies of Bachelor Degree in nursing will provide the knowledge I need to be successful in my nursing career. In my previous experience in college, I learned basic knowledge and the necessary skills to work in a healthcare environment as a nurse. A nurse has a lot of specialties, each with its own challenges and achievements. For example, while I was in my internships for registered nurse, I discovered that I love to work with elderly people. Then, I choose to work in home health care, to provide professional and emotional support for those who care for us for many years and now need our understanding, love, and excellent patient care.
By improving managed care, healthier patients can be achieved and personal health improvement strategies can be developed for the community. I am excited at the possibilities working as a nurse practitioner can achieve. I am confident that my skills will be aligned with the education Walden will provide. Working in the nursing field for over 17 years, I have acquired many professional assessment experiences. In healthcare, nursing interventions are constantly changing, focusing on the evidence based practice to improve patient
Introduction In this paper I will discuss how preceptors and educational leaders have contributed to my nursing career and many others. The mentors who have the most influence on nurses are those that stick with the nurses and help give them the motivation they need to move through obstacles. In the first few paragraphs, I will discuss my personal experience with a mentor and the characteristics they possessed that were beneficial to me. Mentors have become a great influence in my career and many others. In the last section of this paper, I will discuss some of my personal experiences in example and support why I value the characteristics by referring back to peer reviewed articles.
Becoming an advanced practice nurse has been a goal of mine since attending nursing school. Being surrounded by Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS), Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Educators, and Nurse Administrators gave me the inspiration and drive to continue my education as a Parent-Child CNS. As a practicing bedside registered nurse, I want to fulfill my desire to develop on a personal and professional level. Advancing my education can provide me the opportunity to become an expert in my profession by gaining more knowledge and skills to educate patients, families, and the healthcare team. Advanced Education According to Kozub, Brown, & Ecoff (2016), a CNS “blends leadership and advanced clinical practice to improve patient care, nursing practice, and organizational outcomes” (p. 145).
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. Culture Growth & Development Discuss the relevance of personal developmental stage and culture to career planning: As an US immigrant and near future patient advocate, I think on... ... middle of paper ... ... should be involved with the patient care along other health care members, to increase my learning beside benefiting the patients. 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.
I plan to stay current on education by taking courses, attending conferences, obtaining certifications, as well as joining meaningful nursing organizations. I have a strong background in research as evident in working as a research assistant in graduate school and my current involvement in a research project with Dr. Lisa Bradzke for Honor’s Program. My research skills will facilitate my learning process by providing the best evidence based strategies and practices for nursing issues. Completing this goal will not only advance my career, but also expand my effectiveness as a competent
As first year nursing students, it’s important that we find out what truly defines our profession. In order to do this we need to evaluate the different perspectives that surround nursing, which means I need to reflect on the definitions from my interview, my own developing view, and the readings and discussions we had in class. In order to examine these various perspectives, I was given the opportunity to interview a current nurse. This interview allowed me to form my own view, and to evaluate what I’ve learned about nursing in a classroom and compare and contrast it to a clinical setting. I was fortunate to have a nurse in my family, who was willing to share her experiences as a nurse with me.
