The SNAP's domain of evidence-informed practice describes the challenges of nurse practitioners that needed to promote patient care through scientific review and integrate evidence-informed practice into patient care (WRHA, 2016, pg 8-Research_). According to practice standard by CNO 2002 pg 8, registered nurses and nurse practitioners ensure that nursing practices are based on evidence and best-practice guidelines to address client concerns and needs. They also integrate research findings into direct patient care (CNO 2002). Moreover, nurse practitioners are able to engage and implement research-based innovations for promoting patient care. They are able to lead and work together with other healthcare members to support research (WRHA,2016, pg 8-research).

To advocate for the patient is one of the many important responsibilities of the nurse in order to assure patient safety. An example of a situation in which the nurse would need to advocate for the patient would be if the physician were to order a medication that the nurse knows the patient has an allergic reactions to. It would then be the nurse’s duty to advocate for the patient by reminding the physician of the patient’s allergy. The nurse could then also answer any questions that the patient or the family has regarding the new corrected medication or simply just translating any medical terminology that was not
The role of theory in clinical nursing practice is to guide assessment, interventions, and evaluation of nursing care. Theory in nursing practice provides a rationale for collecting reliable and valid data about the health status of clients, which are essential for effective decision making and implementation. Nursing theory also serves as a guide assessment, interventions, and evaluation of nursing practice. Theories can address important questions for nursing units. Theories can be grand, middle range and practice.
& Bredow, T. S., 2013). In conclusion, Jean Watson’s theory of caring, a middle-range theory, provides essential framework and guidelines in nursing shortage problem. Nurses who exposed to caring theory have moral and ethical obligations to care for others during challenging situations. Patients, families and other professionals depend on nursing profession, their expertise and knowledge for best patient
Transition is the core of discipline in nursing ( Schumacher & Meleis, 1994, p.120). One particular transition listed in the Conceptual Curriculum Model is Health-Illness. Health can subjectively be defined as a state of optimal well being while illness can be defined as a sickness having a negative affect on the body. Two of the four aims of nursing are to promote health and prevent illness. In order to be successful in meeting these aims, a nurse will use knowledge, skills and critical thinking.

The integration of an early warning scoring system with nursing practice is a means with which technology and nursing knowledge evolve to “applied wisdom” (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2012). The data is represented by the vital signs. The collection of vital signs will generate information. The information will be scored in the system and alert the nurse when there are abnormal findings.
The article stated the five principles for Ells with special needs are “learning and developments that facilitates joint productive activities among students, learners’ prior knowledge and learning, educational activities within the context of students’ prior experiences and skills, complex solutions and higher-level thinking, and ongoing verbal dialogue.” In order to have effective curriculum implementation, teaching must emphasize: “academic content relative to students’ culture, background, environment, and prior experiences; multiple content knowledge and skills that are reinf... ... middle of paper ... ... differences in ELL students with special needs, emphasizing that a standardized test will never be able to measure the ability of the individual students. Students will be faced many problems in education that may include being wrongly included or excluded from special education classes. Teachers need to pay attention to the individual needs of their students, and ensure that they do not draw faulty conclusions about their students based on other students in the classroom. When a teacher factors in the student’s family and culture, they will be better to relate instructional material to the student, and they will also create an opportunity for higher thinking.

Teaching history in the public school system can present educators with a unique set of challenges that are not found in any other subjects or disciplines. Furthermore, the distinction between U.S. and World History course structure need to be identified in order to effectively incorporate textbooks, unit tests, state standards, and student prior knowledge into the class. U.S. and World History classes differ in many aspects; and the teacher needs to know how to separate the two distinct course structures. As a U.S. History teacher, various forms of accurate student assessment can be incorporated into my classroom which will provide information needed to adjust my teaching styles. I believe U.S History classes provide a more diverse selection of assessment tools because the material is narrower in scope compared to a World History class.
Critical thinking in relation to research papers involves identifying the author’s position, arguments and conclusions but also the line of reasoning that is used to support the conclusions (Cottrell 2005). The use of educational research papers’ is to understand possible relationships between existing practices and educational policy and legislation. Therefore, it is important to relate educational research papers into a wider context and discover links between other research findings. I shall argue that the given Student A’s (Student 2010) paper for this assignment contains too many quotations and descriptive writing compared to the required criteria of critical thinking. There are links between existing practices and educational policy and legislation but it is difficult to discover what position Student A takes due to the lack of arguments.
