ritical thinking is a key skill that nurses need to employ to improve the care they provide and anticipate providing. Developing critical thinking skills is part of what helps a nurse move from novice to expert in their area.

Critical thinking is a key skill that nurses need to employ to improve the care they provide and anticipate providing. Developing critical thinking skills is part of what helps a nurse move from novice to expert in their area.

In my experience in the ICU, I began as a staff nurse with other medical and surgical experience, yet I was a novice. The many devices used to monitor patients, the ventilator, the assessment standards and observational skills were all new to me. I was oriented by a nurse would be considered a proficient nurse as described by Kaminski (2010) of Benner’s Stages of Clinical Competence. She was fluent in the role of Cardiothoracic ICU nurse; she knew what needed to be done as far as tasks and could accomplish them, but also was closely monitoring the patients’ vitals. She could sense when something was wrong, even before the vitals reflected it. The way she interpreted the data and ‘just what the patient looked like’ and rightly relayed this information to the providers made her someone that others would go to for advice and help. The SGNA describes a proficient nurse as one who “perceives situations as wholes rather than in terms of chopped up parts or aspects” (n.d.)

Critical thinking supports clinical competence by cueing the nurse to question: ‘what caused this?’ ‘how could this be prevented?’ and ‘what is the treatment?’. These help the nurse process the things that happen to a patient and apply these reflections on the next situation they encounter. “The proficient nurse learns from experience what typical events to expect in a given situation and how plans need to be modified in response to these events” (SGNA, n.d.).

Nurses should be motivated to achieve the level of expert in their area. This takes courage, as we need to push ourselves out of our comfort zones and advance our knowledge on our own at times. “The true expert must take this risk and continue to move up the ladder of skill and knowledge acquisition despite potential conflict within the nursing workplace” (Kaminski, 2010).

I also thought it was interesting that “Nurse managers skilled in the use of critical thinking may be better able to create positive practice environments that are conducive to job satisfaction and thus the retention of staff RNs” (Zori, Nosek, & Musil, 2010) and I agree with this sentiment. My nurse manager was an expert in the ICU as a charge nurse, then a nursing supervisor, and then she became a nurse manager. I think her experience in each of those roles attributes to what makes her so effective.

In my own practice, I employ many of the practices mentioned above. Between self-reflection, learning from each new patient situation, and questioning my peers and providers on their expertise, I have moved from novice to advanced beginner to competent to proficient. I would not consider myself an expert yet, but in pursuing higher education, I hope to advance to that level.

Describe four cardiovascular conditions that may lead to heart failure and what can be done in the form of medical/nursing interventions to prevent the development of heart failure in each condition.

What nursing interventions are appropriate for Mrs. J. at the time of her admission? Drug therapy is started for Mrs. J. to control her symptoms. What is the rationale for the administration of each of the following medications?

  1. IV furosemide (Lasix) – Lasix is a diuretic that will help to reduce the fluid overload symptoms associated with CHF. Although I would advise to use extreme caution considering Mrs. J’s Blood pressure is documented at 90/58
  2. Enalapril (Vasotec) – Helps improve heart function targeting ventricles for smoother blood flow. Monitor BP
  3. Metoprolol (Lopressor) Tachycardia(HR 118) can cause increased workload on your heart. Monitor BP
  4. IV morphine sulphate (Morphine) – Helps relax smooth muscles, it’ll help with her pain but it will greatly reduce her anxiety and respiration considering the statement that she cannot get enough air.

Describe four cardiovascular conditions that may lead to heart failure and what can be done in the form of medical/nursing interventions to prevent the development of heart failure in each condition.

1. Atrial Fibrillation + RVR – medication use for rate control and/or cardioversion if not contraindicated.

2. Hypertension – lifestyle modifications and changes most importantly diet and exercise. Stress reduction. Reduced if not even better, eliminated salt intake. Medication treatment and management.

3. Obesity – Encouragement of diet and exercise for weight loss!!

4. Smoking – First and foremost … QUIT!! … Medical interventions can include education, therapy and nicotine patches/gum/meds.

Taking into consideration the fact that most mature adults take at least six prescription

medications, discuss four nursing interventions that can help prevent problems caused by multiple drug interactions in older patients. Provide rationale for each of the interventions you recommend.

Four nursing interventions that can help with multiple drug interactions include education of all realms

1. Close monitoring – When patients require help and assistance with medications, it is important to offer teaching and education. This may include preparing medications in medisets for exact medication/dose/time to take the.

2. consider nonpharmacologic treatments – Optimally it would be beneficial to reduce the amount of medications taking. Providing alternatives would be beneficial such as diet, exercise and lifestyle modifications (stress reduction would be an example).

3. Review of all medications – as with close monitoring, reviewing the medications to ensure that they are correct. Polypharmacy is also a concern. Ensure right dose, right med and that they are correct for treatment.

4. easier dosing — Many times medication doses can taken once a day which can be easier for compliance than multiple times a day. Also consider when is the best time for the patient to take the medications. Easier can definitely ensure compliance and reduce errors.

Assignment Part 1, Readings:

As a graduate student, research is a focal point of your education; therefore, it is important for you to understand how to search for and to use only credible sources in the variety of scholarly papers that you will be expected to write. You will begin this Assignment by reading about the kind of research sources you are expected to use at this level of your education. Next, you will read about compiling an annotated bibliography, and then you will learn what a literature review is. It is important that graduate students know the difference between a reference page, an annotated bibliography, and a literature review. Read the following three handouts from the KU Writing Center before you go any further with this Assignment.

Assignment Part 2, Annotated Bibliography:

Your program culminates in a capstone project in MN 600 where you bring together what you have learned and present a project to the academic community. This Assignment gives you the skills and knowledge to begin collecting credible information needed for future assignments and experience with APA citation by creating your own annotated bibliography. As you read in the annotated bibliography handout, an annotated bibliography contains two main parts: bibliographic information (in APA format) and an annotation. Annotations vary, and for this Assignment, your annotations should provide a:

  • Summary of the book, article, white paper, website, or other resource
  • Evaluation of resource. Is the source research related? If so, is it a qualitative or quantitative study or mixed?
  • Fully assess the sources and offer comments or criticisms of it. Is it a reliable source? Is the article current? Is this source scholarly or popular? Can this source be used in a final paper?
  • Application to your program or future research

For your annotated bibliography, you will annotate 10 sources with at least five scholarly (peer-reviewed, evidence-based), three articles from professional and credible websites (i.e., NIH, CDC, etc.), and the remaining two your personal choice, although still credible sources. The topic should be related to your program of study (nursing education, nursing administration, nursing informatics, or advance nursing practice).

Assignment Part 3, Reflection:

After you have compiled your annotated bibliography, reflect on the sources you used for this Assignment. For example, consider the following questions.

  • What difficulties did you encounter when evaluating the credibility of your sources?
  • What questions do you have about the differences between a reference page, annotated bibliography, and a literature review?
  • When do you think it would be helpful or when do you think you will use a literature review in your graduate studies?

Develop a 3–4-page educational plan to help improve the health and welfare needs of a vulnerable population in your community. In your plan, include the demographics of your community and the health care needs of the selected vulnerable population.

The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (2010) has changed the focus of community health care to disease prevention. Now persons who would otherwise not seek health care services can access safe, quality, continuity of care. Many from this population are identified as at-risk. They have a strong need to become more educated about their illnesses and learn how to prevent disease progression. The key is promoting health and wellness.

Questions to consider:

To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community.

  • What are the demographics of your community in terms of the at-risk population?
  • What resources are already in place for this population?
  • What is the best method to approach the intervention with this population?

Instructions:

PREPARATION

  • Read the scenario below.
  • Reflect on your community and review the literature to obtain recent demographic information regarding population, age, gender, socio-economic status, education, ethnic distribution, types of diseases, and morbidity and mortality rates.
  • Once you have gathered this data you should be able to determine what the greatest health care needs are in your community and select an at-risk population that could benefit from a health education program.
Scenario

The Patient Outreach department where you work has asked you to create an education plan for an at-risk population that is underserved in your community.

As an active member of your community you are aware of several health disparities among the population; some members have difficulty accessing care, others have little knowledge of their chronic disease process, and often cultural issues influence medical care.

Patient Outreach would like you to select a group and create a lesson plan that will help educate them and help them better understand how to manage or prevent illness or disease. Consider characteristics of culture, ethnicity, and social background that might affect the target group.

The population you choose could be a subset such as the elderly, an ethnic minority, a lower socio-economic group, or one that you have identified from your own observations. Some examples might be producing a lesson plan on how to manage diabetes or how to decrease the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.

DIRECTIONS

Create a lesson plan for your selected population. Be sure you identify the population your lesson is meant for. As you develop your lesson plan, keep in mind the comprehension level of your target audience and the information you want them to take away. Include the following:

  • Explain why a specific population in your community qualifies as at-risk.
  • Recommend evidence-based strategies to improve health outcomes for this at-risk group.
  • Describe health care resources that serve this vulnerable population.
  • Explain appropriate nursing interventions that will provide quality care to this vulnerable population.
  • Create strategies to support plan implementation, addressing characteristics of culture, ethnicity, and social background that could affect the plan.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Write between 1000 and 1250 words (4–5 pages).
  • Include a title page and reference page.
  • Provide adequate documentation of ideas and appropriate APA citations of relevant literature.
  • Use a minimum of 4 references. (These must be recent, from within the past five years.)
  • Double space, and use Times New Roman font, 12 point.

Develop a 3–4-page educational plan to help improve the health and welfare needs of a vulnerable population in your community. In your plan, include the demographics of your community and the health care needs of the selected vulnerable population.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

  • Competency 1: Evaluate scholarly nursing literature that supports evidence-based nursing practice
    • Explain appropriate evidence-based nursing interventions that will provide quality care to vulnerable populations.
  • Competency 2: Explain ways to promote safe, quality, evidence-based care to populations and communities in health care environments.
    • Describe health care resources that serve vulnerable populations.
    • Explain why a specific population in a community qualifies as at-risk.
    • Create an evidence-based plan to promote health and wellness in an at-risk population.
  • Competency 4: Communicate in a manner that is consistent with expectations of nursing professionals.
    • Write content clearly and logically, with correct use of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.
    • Correctly format citations and references using APA style

Discussion: HITECH Legislation

In order for organizations to receive the incentives offered through the HITECH legislation, they must be able to demonstrate that they are using the technology in meaningful ways. The following criteria for meaningful use must be evident to qualify for EHR incentives (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 2012). The technology must:

  • Improve quality, safety, and efficiency, and reduce health disparities
  • Engage patients and families
  • Improve care coordination
  • Improve population and public health
  • Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for personal health information

For this Discussion you consider the impact of the meaningful use criteria of the HITECH legislation on the adoption of health information technology.

To prepare:

  • Review the Learning Resources on the HITECH legislation and its primary goals.
  • Reflect on the positive and negative impact this legislation has had on your organization or one with which you are familiar.
  • Consider the incentives to encourage the use of EHRs. Focus on the definition of meaningful use and how it is measured.
  • Reflect on how the incentives and meaningful use impact the quality of patient care.
  • Find an article in the Walden Library dealing with one of the criteria to qualify for meaningful use and how it has been successfully met.

BY DAY 3

Post a description of how HITECH legislation has positively or negatively impacted your organization. Address how its related incentives influence the adoption of health information technology in health care and impact the quality of patient care. Provide a summary of the article you identified and explain how it demonstrates the ability of health information technology to meet the requirements of meaningful use.
