PracticeCulture and EthnicityChapter 7: This topic explores caring in nursing practice.Caring is universal.Caring affects the way in which we think, feel, and behave in relation to one another.Numerous scholars have developed theories on caring.These theories assist nurses and students alike to understand that caring is at the heart of the nurse’s ability to work with patients and their family unit in a respectful and therapeutic manner.Chapter 9: This topic discussed culture and ethnicityThe population in the United States is growing in diversity.Within the context of diversity, nurses need to recognize that dominant and variant cultural patterns will exist within the society.When caring for patients, students need to be aware of similarities and differences among the diverse patient care population.  Chapter 7 ObjectivesDiscuss the role that caring plays in building the nurse-patient relationship.Compare and contrast theories on caring.Discuss the evidence

nursing process – Assessment The nursing process is the approach nurses use to identify, diagnose, and treat human responses to health and illness.The nursing process is fundamental to know how they practice.The nursing process is continuous and comprised of five steps: assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation.Nursing assessment helps nurses to form a clear definition of the patient’s problems that provides the foundation for planning and implementing nursing interventions and evaluating the outcomes of care.Chapter 17: This topic introduces the second step of the nursing process – nursing diagnosis After you assess a patient, the next step in the process is to form a diagnostic conclusion.Some conclusions can be used to select a nursing diagnosis.The diagnostic process includes critical analysis and interpretation of assessment data that reveal a patient’s response to health problems, identification of patient needs, and formulation of nursing diagnoses. ·        Chapter 16 Objectives1.   Discuss the relationship between critical thinking and nursing assessment.2.   Explain the process of data collection.3.   Differentiate between

Ideally, nursing interventions should be evidence-based, providing the most current approaches for patient problems.Evaluation:Critical thinking is not a simple step-by-step linear process that is learned in a short period of time.Critical thinking is acquired through experience, commitment, and active curiosity towards learning.When caring for patients and their family members, nurses need to think smart in order to make sensible judgments so that the patient can receive appropriate nursing care.·        Chapter 18 Objectives·        Explain the relationship of planning to assessment and nursing diagnosis.·        Discuss criteria used in priority setting.·        Describe goal setting.·        Discuss the difference between a goal and an expected outcome.·        List the seven guidelines for writing an outcome statement.·        Develop a plan of care from a nursing assessment.·        Discuss the differences between nurse-initiated, physician-initiated, and collaborative interventions.·        Discuss the process of selecting nursing interventions during planning.·        Describe the role that communication plays in planning patient-centered care.·        Describe the consultation process.Chapter 19 Objectives·        Explain the relationship of implementation to the nursing diagnostic process.·        Describe the association between critical thinking and selecting nursing interventions.·        Discuss the differences between protocols and standing orders.·        Identify preparatory activities to use before implementation.·        Discuss the value of the Nursing Interventions Classification system in documenting nursing care.·        Discuss the steps for revising a plan of care before performing implementation.·        Define the three implementation skills.·        Describe and compare direct and indirect nursing interventions.·        Select appropriate interventions for an assigned patient.Chapter 20 Objectives ·        Discuss the relationship between critical thinking and evaluation.·        Describe the standards of professional nursing practice for evaluation.·        Explain the relationship among goals of care, expected outcomes, and evaluative measures when evaluating nursing care.·        Give examples of evaluation measures for determining a patient’s progress toward outcomes.·        Evaluate the outcomes of care for a patient.·        Describe how evaluation leads to discontinuation, revision, or modification of a plan of care.·             Ethics and ValuesLegal ImplicationsChapter 22: This topic explores ethics and values as it relates to nursing.Ethics is the study of conduct and character.When it comes to decision making in the health care setting, you will experience differing values between patients, family members, health care providers, and society at large.The use of a standard process when deliberating ethical dilemmas assists nurses when handling ethical issues.Use of a code of ethics provides a foundation for professional nurses.Chapter 23: This topic explores the legal implications in nursing practice Nurses need to understand the law to protect them from liability and to protect their patients.Nurses need not fear the law, but rather view the information that follows as the foundations for understanding what society expects from professional nurses. Safe nursing practice includes an understanding of the legal boundaries in which nurses practice.As health care evolves, the legal implications for health care evolve as well.An understanding of the implications of the law supports critical thinking on the nurse’s part.Chapter 22 Objectives ·        Discuss the role of ethics in professional nursing.·        Discuss the role of values in the study of ethics.·        Examine and clarify personal values.·        Understand basic philosophies of health care ethics.·        Explain a nursing perspective in ethics.·        Apply critical thinking to ethical dilemmas.·        Discuss contemporary ethical issues.·        Chapter 23 Objectives ·        Explain the legal concept of standard of care.·        Discuss the nurse’s role in witnessing the informed consent process.·         Describe the legal responsibilities and obligations of nurses regarding the following federal statutes: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and the Patient Self-Determination Act (PSDA).·        List sources for standards of care for nurses.·        Describe the nurse’s role regarding a “do not resuscitate” (DNR) order.·        Define legal aspects of nurse-patient, nurse-health care provider, nurse-nurse, and nurse-employer relationships.·        List the elements needed to prove negligence.·        Describe the nursing implications associated with legal issues that occur in nursing practice.     Spiritual HealthCode of Ethics, Practice Standards  The final topic we’ll learn about is spiritual health in nursing and the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice Spirit gives life to a person, as it signifies whatever is at the center of all aspects of a person’s life.Spirituality is an awareness of one’s inner self and a sense of a connection to a higher being, to nature, or to some purpose greater than oneself.Students must remember that a person’s health depends on a balance of physical, psychological, sociological, and cultural developmental and spiritual variables.Spiritual care is often an overlooked aspect of nursing.Spirituality is an important factor that helps patients to achieve the balance needed to maintain health and well-being and to cope with illness. ·        Objectives 1.   Discuss the influence of spiritual practices on the health status of patients.2.   Describe the relationship among faith, hope, and spiritual well-being.3.   Compare and contrast the concepts of religion and spirituality.4.   Perform an assessment of a patient’s spirituality.5.   Explain the importance of establishing a caring relationship with patients to gain spiritual insight.6.   Discuss nursing interventions designed to promote spiritual health.7.   Establish presence with patients.8.   Evaluate how patients attain spiritual health.·           Health Science Science Nursing NURSING 1111 Share QuestionEmailCopy link Comments (0)
