The need of modern society for quality nursing care leads to the need to train nurses in the knowledge of medical issues. An integrated approach that includes different competencies is vital for implementing nursing activities in the field of human health. Taking it into account, training programs imply mastering all the knowledge and skills required in professional activity. Thus, the work done corresponds to the MSN program outcome, and all of the artifacts submitted meet the requirements for nursing.
Providing High Quality Care
Reflections on this issue are presented in Alternative Writing Assignments in NR509 Week 1, NR509 Week 2, NR509 Week 3 and are also mentioned in artifacts NR603 Week 6 Part 1 and 2. We have addressed the issue of assistance and care more than once and came to the same conclusions. The level of service provided for the patient is strongly influenced by how the nurse uses her interpersonal skills, such as listening, empowering the patient to express herself, and comfort and support. This topic was slightly touched upon a bit in work NR599 Week 3.
Watson’s Theory of Human Caring, which was also covered in NR501 Week 5, draws attention to how patients should be caring. It is high-quality, safe, patient-centered care grounded in holistic health principles (Pajnkihar et al., 2017). All this is possible with the sincere desire of the medical worker to help other people while taking into account the patient’s individual characteristics and condition at the moment. All the above-related artifacts boil down to the fact that having received the necessary competencies, nurses must develop their skills to provide quality patient-centered care, planned with his participation.
A significant number of artifacts NR500 Week 2, NR501 Week 5, NR505 Week 5, NR509 Week 2 emphasize the importance of a supportive environment for both the patient and the medical specialist. All aspects that the patient encounters when entering the hospital are essential, ethical, physical, physiological, aesthetic, and psychological noted in NR599 Week 3. A supportive environment for the patient develops when they feel a sense of security since the medical staff creates a comfortable, friendly environment. According to NR599 Week 5, the nurses should be unbiased and willing to show empathy, compassion, respect, and support. A supportive and caring environment is one of “the most effective ways to improve the healing process” and achieve quality results for patients. (Acob, 2018, p. 54) I always point out that I hope to create a favorable environment for each patient in my future nursing practice, depending on their wishes and assessment. For example, the approaches proposed by Jean Watson will not remain unnoticed during studying and will find application in my future nursing practice.
Personal and professional growth is possible through reflective practices and recognition of the cultural diversity and plurality of experiences of people seeking help. While thinking about the multifaceted profession, we talked about the APNs Professional Development Plan in NR500 Week 4. This tool can be used to set both short and long-term goals for professional development. Various practices which make nurses think about their professional path, increase self-awareness, identifying strengths and weaknesses are discussed in NR500 Week 2. The need for cultural competence is becoming increasingly important since countries are becoming more and more multinational (Henderson et all., 2018). Therefore, there is a need to be aware of the differences and the importance of providing optimal care for patients regardless of gender, race, or ethnicity. With the growing demand for healthcare services, APNs are valuable, considering NR501 Week 3 and NR599 Week 3. They must continue their education and constantly evolve to keep abreast of changes in technology and new trends in healthcare management.
Integrating Professional Values
Analysis of articles in the works NR505 Week 4 and reflection on specific professional values shows that the moral foundations of healing are universal human moral values, principles, and norms. Artifact NR602 Week 8 highlights that by providing medical services, the nurse thus integrates professional values into interaction with the patient. Professional values integrated through scholarships motivate medical students to study and achieve personal heights and acquire professional qualifications. Scholarship related to nursing practice and profession provides the nurses with knowledge of nursing systems, leadership, skills related to interpersonal collaboration stated in NR500 NP. It also enhances the delivery of holistic, safe, and quality care, thereby improving patient outcomes.
Collaborative Advanced Nursing Practice
In the NR601 Week 7, we discussed and analyzed cases of nurse practitioner pupils from the collaborative advanced nursing practice. Examples indicated that students had reached Chamberlain College of Nursing FNP Program Outcomes; these included weekly clinical cases and shadow health research. They have been successful in their businesses as they have given their patients and communities a much-needed voice. In their interactions with their patients, they used advocacy, a kind of compassion that led to good results. This method is applicable in interpersonal situations between the patient and the health care provider. It protects people from harm and helps maintain the person’s voice in choosing appropriate therapy alternatives. As stated in NR603 Week 6, evidence-based learning has been used to assess, implement, plan, diagnose, and evaluate various virtual people to validate patients’ well-being. This teaching approach has yielded positive health outcomes through the compassionate, evidence-based collaborative practice of leading nurses.
