After reviewing the research articles and discovering nosocomial CLABSIs are an issue in many areas of nursing care, it is evident nurses need further education on this matter. It would also be beneficial to establish a quality assurance change plan and establish set guidelines for staff to follow when inserting, and caring, for CLs. Continuing education is always an advantage in nursing. Keeping current with evidence-based practices and research, ensures nurses are up to date on the current literature allowing them to provide quality, safe patient care. The research conducted in these articles highlighted the fact that educating staff led to improved patient outcomes in relation to nosocomial CLABSIs.
Virginia Henderson developed the nursing need theory, which focuses on increasing the patient’s independence to speed up the recovery process (Alligood and Tomey, 2009). This is where my theory begins to connect with hers. Our main duty as nurses is to provide care for the patient while they are unable to care for themselves and facilitate them to be the best individual they can be. For this reason nursing is both a science and an art. It is a science in that nurses must understand the disease processes that are affecting the patient’s health, they must also practice based on evidence that is defended by science, and know how to operate equipment and machines.
The nursing process is one of the most fundamental yet crucial aspects of the nursing profession. It guides patient care in a manner that creates an effective, safe, and health promoting process. The purpose and focus of this assessment paper is to detail the core aspects of the nursing process and creating nursing diagnoses for patients in a formal paper. The nursing process allows nurses to identify a patient’s health status, their current health problems, and also identify any potential health risks the patient may have. The nursing process is a broad assessment tool that can be applied to every patient but results in an individualized care plan tailored to the most important needs of the patient.

Advocacy requires a set of skills that include problem solving, communication, influence, and collaboration”(p. 2). With those skills, the nursing staff will be able to work together to advocate for their patients. Along with those skills, nurses need to keep in mind the three core attributes that are: safeguarding patients’ autonomy; acting on behalf of patients; and championing social justice in the provision of health care. (Bu & Jezewski, 2006) Problem Solving Problem solving is when there is a problem or issue that needs to be resolved. When there is a problem with a patient the nursing staff needs to try and resolve it to make all parties satisfied.
In the healthcare setting it becomes highly relevant for the nurse to have the ability to lead, as it is important to be able to work within or lead a team to facilitate quality and safe care for patients (Coelho Amestoy et al. 2014). Coelho Amestoy et al. (2014) also reflect on the challenges that the rn can face in trying to assume the leadership role in the healthcare setting, as there are many health professionals in in this setting there may be conflicting ideas in relation the care. Influential leadership skills are needed by all RNs, from those in management positions and especially to RNs providing direct care to patients (Curtis, DeVries and Sheerin, 2011).

The registered nurse should communicate clearly her expectation of the task to be accomplished, when and where information should be reported, observations that are expected to be recorded/reported and specific patient concerns that require immediate attention. The nurse would then assess the understanding of the expectation and clarification if needed. Open and mindful communication improves delegation and increase patient safety. Besides verbal communication, non-verbal communication is very important. The nurse’s body language should reflect what she is verbalizing (Yoder-Wise,
