The cookuo’s nest is a war between Mc and the big nurse, a war should have a winner and a loser, which is the topic we had talked about during the class last week. Although some of my classmates thought Mc won at last, I still had a point of view that the Big Nurse should be the winner.
First of all, when the Big Nurse asks them to take medications, the patients will take them even they don’t want it. While Mc first take his medicine, he just find that patient try to avoid of taking those.
And the second point, the Big Nurse try her hardest to create the fear among the patients, and in many ways decrease the influence of Mc. When Mc try to make all the patients vote for the baseball game, Big Nurse still use her power to let Mc fail but Mc can not find any excuse to refute her decision, the failure of the “uprising for the baseball game” let the patients thought that the Big Nurse had more power than Mc did. Some of the patients, just like Cheswake, influenced by Mc and talk against to Big Nurse because she keep his cigarette and make him crazy. What the big nurse do was just send him to the disturbed. After back from the disturbed, Cheswake suicide when he was having a shower. Another example, chief, the one who support Mc most, fight with the black boys for Mc, also be sent to the disturbed because of this. So it is not hard to found that the Big Nurse want every patient to know what they will have if they don’t follow the rule that the Big Nurse made and try to against her with Mc.
Thirdly, the Big Nurse know clearly what were the weakness of the patients. After Candy’s party, while she found Billy naked with a girl, she just told Billy“I was your mum’s good friend, she will be really pleased if she knew what you have done last night”, and then Billy just became crazy, he even killed himself because the Big Nurse did not forgive him even the Big Nurse did not…...

...Nurse Patient Relationship ------------------------------------------------- The nurse patient relationship is a central to patient satisfaction. Nurses spend most of the time with patient. Therefore nurses attitude toward their work, co-workers and hospital influences patients’ opinion and experience about the hospital. It is imperative to have positive nurse patient relationship to establish rapport and achieve healing. Patients and families count on nurses to keep them informed, to connect them to their physicians and other caregivers, to listen to them, to ease their anxiety, and to protect and watch over them during their healthcare experience. Because of these high expectations of nurses, it’s no wonder that nursing performance, and more specifically, the nurse patient relationship, is so central to patient satisfaction and a quality patient experience. ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- It is a nurse’s job to care for a patient’s medical needs. However, caring for their emotional well-being can have just as beneficial an impact on patient care. The relationship between nurse and patient requires trust, as well as understanding. For a patient to disclose private or embarrassing details about their physical or mental condition, they need to first trust that their nurse will treat them with dignity and respect. Furthermore, patients will only follow the advice of their nurse if they trust in his or...

...it is very important that a well-trained professional nurse should learn about physical science, social science, biological science, and technology. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) states “education has a significant impact on the knowledge and competencies of nurses.” In United States, based on the education, the nursing degrees range from diploma to doctoral level. Associate degrees in Nursing (ADN) and Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) are the most common degree programs in United States. A community college or university can provide an Associate degree in nursing (ADN) with license to practice in health care settings (American Association of Community Colleges, 2003). On other hand, Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) are offered by senior colleges and universities that require different basics and prerequisites, and in BSN program, training will be provided to improve leadership skills in addition to clinical nursing skills. Fairleigh Dickinson University started first ADN degree in 1952. In United States this entry level nursing degree is awarded by community colleges or technical colleges. Associate degrees will train the students in technical application of the nursing process. However, one of the disadvantages of the associate nursing program is that it never give emphasis on research based learning or evidence-based nursing practice. On other hand, most of the professional nurses hold a BSN degree which makes them to role away......

The cultural, socio and economic background play a vital role in the determining how one can merge themselves with health care profession. Traditional background appraisals of the patient make nurses resolve the needs which affect the physical and mental health of the patient. The Nursing community needs to pay attention while treating a patient coming from different cultural backgrounds, which helps nurses determine whether to provide more acceptable health care to the patients for better results. Heritage estimation tools and technics are double edged knives which make nurses understand their cultural backgrounds and to provide a suitable health care for the patients coming from different cultural background.

...Ethical Issues for Nurses Alexis Bushay HCA 322 Health Care Ethics & Medical Law Instructor: Jennine Kinsey August 18, 2012 Ethical Issues for Nurses Ethical issues have always affected the role of the professional nurse. Efforts to enact this standard may cause conflict in health care settings in which the traditional roles of the nurse are delineated within a bureaucratic structure. Nurses have more direct contact with patients than one can even imagine, which plays a huge role in protecting the patients’ rights, and creating ethical issues for the nurses caring for the various patients they are assigned to. In this paper I will discuss some of the ethical and legal issues that nurses are faced with each and every day. Ethics deals with standards of conduct and moral judgment. The major principles of healthcare ethics that must be upheld in all situations are beneficence, nonmaleficence, autonomy, and justice. Beneficence means promoting or doing good. Nurses work to promote their clients' best interests and strive to achieve optimal outcomes. Nonmaleficence means avoiding harm. Nurses must maintain a competent practice level to avoid causing injury or suffering to clients. The principle of nonmaleficence also covers reporting suspected abuse to prevent further victimization and protecting clients from chemically impaired nurses and other healthcare practitioners. Autonomy stands for independence and the ability to be self-directed. Clients have the right of......

...Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring Caring Moment - “The moment (focal point in space and time) when the nurse and another person come together in such a way that an occasion for human caring is created” In Jean Watson's theory of caring she has tried to make “explicit nursing's values, knowledge, and practices of human caring that are geared toward subjective inner healing processes and the life world of the experiencing person, requiring unique caring-healing arts and a framework called "carative factors," which complemented conventional medicine, but stood in stark contrast to "curative factors." At the same time, this emerging philosophy and theory of human caring sought to balance the cure orientation of medicine, giving nursing its unique disciplinary, scientific, and professional standing with itself and its public.” (Watson, 1999) Concepts: • Carative factors (evolving toward "Clinical Caritas Processes") • Transpersonal Caring Relationship • Caring Moment/Caring Occasion Jean Watson’s 10 carative factors that can be used as a guideline to help nursing interventions. These carative factors provide a framework that aids the nurse to pay attention to the caring processes. 1. Embrace altruistic values and practice loving kindness with self and others. 2. Instill faith and hope and honor others. 3. Be sensitive to self and others by nurturing individual beliefs and practices. 4. Develop helping – trusting- caring relationships. 5. Promote and......

...nursing, are the nurse–patient relationships that result in a therapeutic outcome. Hers is a theory of human caring that has a foundation in dignity, respect and trust. Watson’s theory and her four major concepts of human being, health, environment and nursing can be applied to the problem of frequent hospitalization due to non-compliance issues that occur. Human Being Nurses that work in hospitals that provide health care for people with poor socio-economic status often experience “frequent flyers”. An example of such patient is Mr.K, a 56 year old African American male admitted with hypertensive urgency with a B/P of 242/138. This is his third admission within the past two months. Mr.K stated that he had been drinking “gallons of vinegar” to lower his blood pressure after he “ran out of medicine”. Mr.K does not receive any type of income because he does not have a job and is currently living in a shelter. Regardless of his noncompliance and poor socio-economic status, Watson states that this patient is a “valued person to be cared for, respected, nurtured, understood, and assisted” (1988). From the first interaction or “caring moment” as Watson puts it, the nurse must establish a caring relationship which can only be attained by the display of unconditional acceptance. Watson states that a helping- trusting authentic caring relationship must be developed and sustained(1988). Sensitivity and openness to his condition must be demonstrated. Nurses must......

...In order to deliver nursing care to different cultures, nurses are expected to understand and provide culturally competent health care to diverse individuals. Culturally competent care is tailored to the specific needs of each client, while incorporating the individual’s beliefs and values (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2006, p. 90). By being culturally competent, nurses are able to help improve health outcomes by using cultural knowledge and specific skills in selecting interventions that are specific to each client (Stanhope & Lancaster). Therefore, nurses “should perform a cultural assessment on every client with whom they interact with” (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2006, p. 90) to help understand client’s perspectives of health and illness and discuss culturally appropriate interventions. In this paper, the author will demonstrate how nurses can utilize a cultural heritage assessment tool to help develop a cultural competent nursing care plan, which can be referred to in Appendix A and B. By culturally assessing client, nurses will be able to identify the needs of culturally diverse individuals and find out if what's important to the culture is really important to the person in terms of specific health needs. Introduction In order to deliver nursing care to different cultures, nurses are expected to understand and provide culturally competent health care to diverse individuals. Nurses must find out about people’s traditions, ways of life, and beliefs about health care so that the......

While a source of income is still required, the company where one is employed may not have as much influence if the career detracts significantly from the non-work related needs of the individual. Furthermore, if companies are insensitive to employee needs, and work becomes a significant source of stress, not only does worker productivity lessen but that company’s name and reputation as an employer may hinder its own ability attract necessary quality employees. Employees and employers alike are looking for ways to increase worker satisfaction. One increasingly attractive solution is the growing acceptance of a flexible work week and schedule. Prominent employers like Kraft Foods, Texas Instruments and First Tennessee Bank have implemented these changes for their workers to boost productivity while increasing job satisfaction (Forbes). Employers are also using these flex schedules as a way of attracting and retaining their employees. For example, “In 1999 only 18 companies on Fortune magazine’s list......

...physician. “The joint commission considers wrong site surgery to be sentinel events that are an unexpected occurrence involving death or serious physical or physiological injury, or the risk from that point forward. Serious injury specifically includes loss of limb or function” (Dillon, 2008) Mr. Joseph Benson is a sixty-two-year-old who has circulation problems and is diabetic; one of his limbs requires amputation. I will explain in this negligence paper the differences that separate negligence, gross negligence, and malpractice. I will look into the reasoning why nursing shortages and union problems may have caused the disaster. Finally, I will state why it is important to document because of the chances of negligence should I be Mr. Benson’s nurse. Briefly I will describe my ethical principles concept, this will guide my hospital practice and I documented the case that will satisfy legal and moral requirements. Negligence “Negligence is described as failure to use such care as a reasonably prudent and careful person would use under similar circumstance” (Weld and Bibb, 2009, p.3). Negligence can be deemed as “carelessness a deviation from the standard of care that a reasonable person would use in a particular set of circumstances. (Guido, 2010, p.92). Some typical examples that point to negligence are as follows: inadequate hydration, malnutrition, never turning on an Apnea monitor and lack of care. Negligence occurred when the Neighborhood hospital, amputated the......

...My Dream Job My dream job would be to become a Nurse. I love working with people and helping in any way that I can. Most people get sick when they see blood and bones. I like to learn about the human anatomy. I am very good at dealing with people who are sick. Being in hospitals does not bother me to most people it does. I have an aunt who is a nurse at Baptist; she loves her job and is extremely good at it. That is what inspired me to become a nurse. I also have a lot of cousins that are nurses. Making people healthy is a goal that I as well try to follow by. Everyone should feel good about themselves. Nursing takes a huge commitment; you have to study a lot and also may have to work double shifts. Working is something I enjoy doing, I would not mind working double shifts if I was needed to. Depending on what type of nursing you go to school for depends a lot on the type of studies required for that field. Most nursing you do have to know a lot about the human body as well as math and chemistry. To me you would have to like science, and being around people who are hurt and need your help. Going to school is how I am receiving the requirements for my dream job. Making money is always a huge part of a job, especially in this economy. .I would like to have a job that I love doing and make little money rather than have a job I hate making a lot of money. If I was asked to travel as a traveling nurse I would agree to go anywhere they wanted me to. It would give me a great......

Small Steps Big Wins

...Small Steps Big Wins 1. Please share your overall thoughts on Small Steps Big Wins? What did you learn from doing this exercise? What are your thoughts on sustainability? I think Small Steps Big Wins is a very good platform for us to share our sustainable activities and encourage us to act sustainably in everyday life. I learned that everyone can contribute to the society’s sustainability by taking some small actions, like reusing water bottles, unplugging, and etc. These small sustainable activities we can do in daily life cause big effects to the society and they are critical. If everyone keeps doing these sustainable actions ever day, we could change the world a lot. In class, we learned that sustainability is to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. By taking this exercise, I think that sustainability is not only a responsibility of corporations but also a responsibility for everyone in the society. Everyone should contribute to sustainability by taking these small actions. 2. Discuss the administration of Small Steps? Where directions adequate from Ron, Liz or Net Impact National? Was the program easy to follow? What would you ask us to do differently next semester? How about incentives (extra credit, cash, great interview story, etc – discuss)? The administration of Small Steps is good and it was easy to follow the exercise. My contributions to sustainability by taking these small......

...I’m not one of those people who grew up always knowing that they wanted to become a nurse. I went through the usual childhood fantasies: pilot, lawyer, scientist, architect, etc. But, never a nurse. My complete fascination and admiration for the profession is something that came to me rather recently in my life. In fact, what inspired me to pursue nursing was my experience with my pregnancies and the birth of my second child. Second child? Yes, I have two babies. So maybe I am going about things in a somewhat unorthodox manner, but it sure makes for an interesting and challenging learning environment. Given my life situation, maintaining a 3.3 GPA in my undergraduate studies and a 3.5 GPA in my prerequisite coursework has proven difficult, though I hope my persistence and hard work will ultimately pay off. The delivery of my first-born child was by way of cesarean section. While it was perfect and beautiful and completely orchestrated, I knew almost immediately after the birth that if I were ever blessed with another baby, I wanted to do things differently. When that time came around, the plan was to attempt a vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). Jumping feet first into this “plan”, I made sure to complete hours upon hours of research as to be armed with applicable information to provide to my obstetrician. While I knew VBAC deliveries were not necessarily favored in the medical community, I never anticipated the difficulty I would face when proposing my wishes.......

...Tyshauna F. Epps Mrs. Louise M. Brown English 101 29 June 2011 Working as a Nurse V/S Working as a Teacher As stated in the 6th edition Columbia Encyclopedia, nursing has always existed as an occupation, and recently, it has developed as a specialized profession. Teachers have been around for millions of years providing students with the proper education. Nursing is a better career choice than teaching is. Every student needs continuing education preparation to have any type of college degree. Students who become interested in nursing may want to become registered nurses or licensed practical nurses. The requirements for degree programs and licensure vary for these two groups. When training for licensed practical nurses, students study a 1-year program from technical schools, vocational schools, or community colleges. As for a registered nurses degree, students study from 2-4 years at an accredited nursing program. To become a teacher, students need to complete 4 years of study at any university. If students opt to become preschool teachers, a 2-year degree program in early childhood development must be obtained. When you choose to go into any profession, continuing education preparation is required. Nurses have more job opportunities than teachers. If you look around, nurses are needed at hospitals and nursing homes every day. With over 100,000 vacant positions and an ever-growing need for healthcare workers, the career outlook is excellent for the nursing field.......
