What Is Your Definition Of Nursing Excellence? Nursing excellence is defined in various ways. I believe that nursing excellence is demonstrated when nurses are involved in promoting holistic patient centered care, quality and innovation, education, evidence-based practice, and nursing research. Nursing organizations plays a pivotal role in promoting nursing excellence. For this discussion post, I will be discussing the role of two organizations; the National League of Nursing (NLN) and the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN), in promoting nursing excellence and nursing practice.

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.
Nursing theories are the support of nursing practice nowadays. Application of nursing theory into practice has significant impact on improving quality of patient care and overall healthcare outcomes. In particular, a practice theory called Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle (PDSA), developed by W. Edwards Deming, can be applied to improve processes in healthcare settings. According to Varkey, Relle, & Resar (2007), this theory “involves trial-and-learning approach in which a hypothesis or suggested solution for improvement is made and testing is carried out on a small scale before any changes are made to the whole system” (p. 736). Healthcare processes need to be constantly evaluated based on evidenced-based-practice for quality improvement and better patient outcomes.
Having advanced nursing knowledge and being able to apply it into appropriate healthcare settings is key when caring for various patient populations (Christensen, 2011).

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.

Nursing theories came about as an explanation, reasoning or through research and practice as a way to explain and come up for procedures of healthcare. The best way to look at nursing theories is like the foundational block. Nursing theories are important set the tone of how a nurse will practice. A nurse will use intuition, practice, past expertise and events, and couple with learned theories to work every day in order to give the best patient care. it is all the more important to appreciate what first advanced nursing beyond mechanisms of practice to becoming a knowledge-based force in healthcare: That force is nursing theory and the theoretical thinking and research that generate theory.
