The group I have chosen are elderly people with dementia, because of their illness, they are not able to concentrate, take care of themselves and it also depends on the severity of their condition. Hence this may impact their ability of doing their daily tasks, and this is what makes them vulnerable.

Nurses Leadership Roles in Policy

..."There is a movement afoot, and that movement is saying that if we do not get nurses fully engaged at every level of this delivery system, from policy formulation to operations, that we all ultimately suffer, and we are tired of suffering," Reed V. Tuckson, MD, FACP, executive vice president and chief of medical affairs at UnitedHealth Group in Minnetonka, Minnesota, stated at the January 20 RWJF panel meeting. "It seems incredible that at a time when our challenges are the worst they have ever been and are getting more complex, that we would somehow not make use of all of our assets....," Dr. Tuckson added. "It is past time for health policy and for healthcare institutions to not maximally benefit from the experience, the knowledge, and let me indicate not trivially, the compassion of nurses." Other areas in which opinion leaders would like to see nurses have more influence included increasing healthcare efficiency and reducing costs (84%), coordinating care through the healthcare system (83%), helping the healthcare system adapt to an aging population (83%), and improving access to healthcare (74%). "These opinion leaders recognize that nurses' experience at the bedside and our unique perspective on patient needs make us particularly well-qualified to shape healthcare policy and delivery systems to best meet patients' needs," panel member Mary Naylor, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in Philadelphia, director of the New......

...A student in Higher Education and a Future Healthcare Practitioner. In this essay I will explore my initial reflections on my role as a student in higher education. There will a discussion on my role as a future healthcare practitioner and the efforts I need to make to achieve the professional status of a nurse. I will discuss my learning styles and identify key developmental needs to be addressed. There will be discussions on the concepts of professionalism and accountability. In the United Kingdom today all newly qualified nurses must have a nursing degree as required by The Nursing and Midwifery Council. This significant overhaul to Florence Nightingale’s eighteenth century era, apprenticeship style learning system (Bradshaw, A. 2001), has led to fundamental changes in nursing education in the twenty first century; both in theory and practice. Today nurses are challenged with up-to date demands, including innovative medical treatments, leading to an aging population, with complex health values (Cherry, B. 2005). In addition, knowledgeable patients, who are averse to being told what to do but expect greater involvement in their own care planning. The need for graduate nurses is supported by the Willis Commission Report (2012) which argues that ‘our future healthcare services will require graduate nurses nursing and leading healthcare teams in a variety of roles, providing care in many settings’.

Future Impact of Nurses Role

...Future Impact of the Nursing Role Future Impact of the Nursing Role In November of 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued a report titled “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” It’s a look at how nurses should change their practice and role in healthcare. The new legislative reforms in the nation are being phased in over the coming years. This reform will expand the scope of the nursing profession and practice. This reform states that: “A number of barriers prevent nurses from being able to respond effectively to rapidly changing health care settings and an evolving health care system. These barriers need to be overcome to ensure that nurses are well-positioned to lead change and advance health (IOM-2010) .“ The Institute of Medicine (IOM) developed four key messages that form the origin for the analysis and endorsements presented. The first three are referring to the nursing role, and these are in summary: 1). Nurses should practice to the entire extent of their training and education. 2). Nurses should strive for higher levels of education and training, through a quicker more user friendly educational system that promotes seamless progression from one degree to another higher degree. 3). Nurses should be considered equal colleagues with physicians and other health care professionals, when remodeling health care in the United States. What is the impact on nursing practice...

Obesity Patients and the Role of the Professional Nurse

...Obesity and the Professional Nurse’s Role Paper Part I Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions. Currently, there are more than one third of children and adolescents who are determined as being overweight or obese (Ogden et al, 2014). In the past 30 years, the numbers of children who are affected by obesity have more than doubled (CDC, 2014). Clinically defined, children who are determined to be overweight are those who have excess body weight for their height and it is attributed to fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of (Stats, 2014). Children who are determined to be obese are those who have an excess amount of body fat and it is not attributed to physical characteristics (Krebs et al, 2007). For nurses who work with this population of patients, special care will need to be taken to address the host of physical and emotional issues that will be a part of this population’s treatment and care. Nursing staff must be prepared to appropriately diagnose obesity related health problems and provide effective intervention and treatment recommendations. Nurses who develop insightful treatment planning will be cognizant of the variety of health complications that may affect the patient in their care and can plan accordingly (Felix et al, 2013). As such, nurses also need to be more knowledgeable about how genetic susceptibility may also be a contributing factor to a child’s obesity (Seal, 2011). This will enable the treatment planning to incorporate genetic......

Nurse Practitioner Role Development

...FNP Role Development Katy Lehigh Concordia University Wisconsin FNP Role Development For five decades nurse practitioners have been providing safe, effective, quality primary care services to all ages and populations. As a testament to their commitment and excellence nurse practitioners are being chosen as provider of choice by millions of Americans. Becoming a skilled provider is a dynamic process that occurs over time. Effective role development is essential in becoming a dynamic, compassionate, and knowledgeable clinician. Political Perspective Not all threats to our nation derive from foreign enemies. Our nation suffers within our own borders due to chronic illnesses, rising medical costs, wasted resources, poor coordination of care, and a lack of nationalized healthcare. “America’s health care system is in crisis: It is a ‘sick care’ system, not a health care system” (Blumenthal, 2012). The current healthcare system is fragmented, mismanaged, and poorly financed. Americans receive healthcare insurance through various means, such as government run programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, privately through their employer, private pay, or the purchase through an open market. Regardless of the many healthcare options the United States has to offer, 14.7% of the population remains uninsured (Shi & Singh, 2015, p. 199). “The existence of multiple payers makes the system cumbersome” and poses a billing and collection nightmare for healthcare providers (Shi......

Nurses and Students Have Guidelines

...Nurses and Students Have Guideline to Follow University of Phoenix Nurses and Students Have Guidelines to Follow The purpose of this document is to present to nurses and nursing students a comparison of The American Nursing Association Code of Ethics for Nurses to the University of Phoenix General Student Responsibilities. The American Nursing Association Code of Ethics sets guidelines on how a nurse should practice nursing. The ANA code of ethics has nine provisions. The University of Phoenix Code of Student Responsibilities also has guidelines for its students to follow. The purpose of University of Phoenix codes is to help students become successful at achieving their academic goals. The University of Phoenix has 12 codes for its students to abide by. I have chosen two codes from the ANA code of ethics to compare to two similar codes from University of Phoenix Student Responsibilities. Comparisons will be made regarding confidentiality, privacy, accountability, responsibility, and reporting questionable and impaired practice. Codes of ethics help us to make prudent decisions now and in the future. As professional adults, one has a great deal of responsibilities. As a student at the University of Phoenix and a nurse I have to use my own judgment and make my own decisions. I ask for help when ever in doubt of an assignment at school or at work. I always ask questions to an upper authority figure such as my instructor at school or a......

Role of Teachers in Students' Identity

...important that teachers should take charge of their students, to help them develop a positive identity and thus a positive recognition, so they can define others as well as themselves and their groups from a positive perspective (Cherry 2011). By definition, identity represents a private self of a person through values upheld, views, principles and ideals that collectively form a strong basis of personality. It is basically built around the language, beliefs and even the culture of the community in which an individual identifies himself/herself with. This socio-cultural self-awareness of a person is not fixed but changes according to the environment and its transformation around him/her. It is a psychological defense mechanism that unconsciously exists in every person. Negative stereotypes as well as negative forces such as war, race, and discrimination can negatively affect a person, and more so the young generation in schools. A teacher for example who discriminates against a student will impact negatively on the student and trigger development of a negative identity in that student. This will hinder all the capabilities and potential s of that student and success will never be possible for him/her (Schmader 2008). On the other hand, a teacher who constantly encourages his/her students develops a very strong sense of positive identity in the students. This positive identity in turn propagates further determination in the students, making the positively receptive to more......

Role of Clinical Nurse Specialist

...Running head: NURSING ROLE Nursing Role in the Healthcare Delivery System Transition to Professional Practice Abstract This paper will discuss the thoughts and feelings of a clinical nurse specialist and how she feels the role of nursing has changed over the years. Nursing Role in the Healthcare Delivery System The role of nursing is a dynamic one. It continues to change day by day, year by year since the days Florence Nightingale when nursing was “invented,” if you will. Beverly Glick a clinical nurse specialist in a busy level three-trauma center has witnessed firsthand many of these changes. Beverly Glick has been a nurse for 38 years. Twenty of those years, she has worked in the emergency department (ED) (Glick, 2009). During her time as a nurse, Beverly has witnessed many changes in the role of nursing. She recalls how nurses used to sit at the nurses’ station and smoke. She remembers times when as soon as the physicians rounded the corner in the department the nurses would jump from their chairs so the physicians could sit down (Glick, 2009). Beverly recognizes that nurses are more respected members of the inter-disciplinary team than they ever used to be. Physicians are respecting their opinions and clinical judgment more than ever. She also recognizes along with that comes and increased responsibility for knowledge. She states “nurses are required to know more now than they ever did and be right about it” (Glick, 2009). ......

Situational Analysis of the Role of the Staff Nurse in the Context of

...SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE ROLE OF THE STAFF NURSE IN THE CONTEXT OF INTER-PROESSIONAL WORKING. The aim of this assignment is to discuss the role of the nurse in the context of the inter-professional team. Discharge planning will be discussed and analysed incorporating relevant knowledge such as teamwork and role enhancement. Relevant social, economic and health policies such as clinical governance will be discussed. Perspectives of each of the principle professional groups including myself as a third year student nurse, will be incorporated and collaborative team working addressed. The Department of health (2002) describes discharge planning as a pathway used to decide patient needs, for a smooth move from one level of care to another (Hunt 1996) and is the process through which patient’s needs are identified and plans are written, facilitating continuity of health care (Jackson 1994). According to the department of health (2000) discharge planning illustrates well, the role of the nurse within the inter-professional team the balance between goals set, care delivered and evaluation of care from a nurse and team perspective. Nurse involvement is considered integral and, aims to provide effective discharge plans (Department of Health 2000). The Royal College of Nursing (RCN 2002) supports the concept of nurses taking the lead and recommends the development of nurse led protocols in discharge planning. However the NMC (2004) highlights the importance of nurses being......
