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.
Yet, Dr. Therapides feels that the patient, who is already frightened and apprehensive, may become more apprehensive if he is aware of the risks associated with the procedure.

While Dr. Therapides may feel that her patient will become more frightened after hearing about the risks associated with the procedure, I still feel that it is her duty to inform him. The patient may not ever be “fully informed” but, the pertinent information in this case must be disclosed if Dr. Therapides plans to follow protocol. In following the elements of consent, she must make sure that her patient has the capacity to make a decision in his healthcare and voluntarily agrees to do the surgery.
While participating in this activity, I was expected to follow the strict guidelines by the instructor and nurse; as required by the rules and regulations, and code of conduct in nursing. The nurse I was assigned to seemed a little intimidating in terms of her strictness when dealing with a student. This made me strive to avoid mistakes by documenting on time, and restoring the confidence of the patient to my ability. My key issue is that sometimes, the nurse would go with me to the patient and this heightened my anxiety. This led to jeopardizing the client’s safety, in this event; I forgot to lower the patient’s bed back to the appropriate height.
Patients rely on their physicians and other doctors, patients think or do what the doctor was right. Family doctor broke the minor patient confidentiality, without their permission. Minor patient 's family secret is broken, the patient can choose to stay away treatment.addition medical patient told the doctor, it seems disgusting and disclose sensitive personal information, do not tell their parents, then the doctor should not be counted.

For this assignment I will address Morton- Cooper & Palmer (2005) enabling traits and discussed the core skill of a mentor. I will analyse and reflect on how I’ve utilised these skill with a third year student nurse in my practice area (cardiology) I will also reflect and evaluate my mentoring experience with my learner to see if there is any area of improvement or changes to be amended. The Department for Health (2001) defined a mentor as an individual who facilitates learning and supervises and assesses students in the practice setting. As mentors, they make time for there students, checked student performance, set boundaries for the shift, knew what students were learning, explain what they were doing, asked questions and challenged students and acted as positive role models. In summary an effective mentor is someone who has a particular view of the nature of human beings and how they should be treated, has certain personal attributes, up-to-date knowledge and skills related to their professional practice and a genuine desire to give time and energy to the role of mentor.
For example, I learned within the field of clinical psychology, there are various aspects of the field. Currently, Dr. Felton does clinical work, research, and academia. This information was valuable because I am interested in both clinical work and research, I had previously assumed I would have to pick one and could not combine both aspects.

I think it is important that I clarify my own values to ensure that my care is client-centered. Self- reflection during care is also fundamental as it makes me aware of my actions and whether they are establishing a therapeutic relationship or doing the opposite.. Finally, I need to learn to be more empathetic towards my patient’s situations by being interactive, gaining insight and avoid being focused on the task and more on being with the situation. Some things that I will preserve are attentively listening, demonstrating attending behaviours and maintaining my patient’s dignity by ensuring privacy and

Therapists would help patients regain their strength or motion and I found that incredible. I did my own research and read more about what physical therapy was and the schooling needed. I want a career that will challenge me every day but also allows me to interact with and help people. During my research I came across Texas Woman’s University. While at college I reached out to someone at the office of admissions and we met.
