Integrate knowledge, theory, research and
skills in planning and evaluating comprehensive
plans of care for individuals, families and
populations
  • Demonstration of Clinical Proficiency at School
  • Examining 10 16 patients/week at Medical Clinic,
    site for clinical hours. Utilizing guidelines at
    National Guideline Clearinghouse website while
    writing plan for patients with multiple and
    complex problems like diabetes mellitus,
    hypertension, autoimmune diseases.

13
Integrate knowledge, theory, research and skills
in planning and evaluating comprehensive plans of
care for individuals, families and populations
  • Demonstration of Clinical Proficiency at school
    and work
  • During MSN 510, Theories for Advance Nursing
    Roles, I utilized Peplaus theory of
    interpersonal relations (1988) to study the
    relationship of a nurse with a patient with
    chronic pain.
  • Utilizing the knowledge gained to plan care of
    hospice patients at work to optimize pain relief
    by maintaining consistency of nurse for each
    patient to allow for development of therapeutic
    relationship.

14
Integrate knowledge, theory, research and skills
in planning and evaluating comprehensive plans of
care for individuals, families and populations.
  • Demonstration of Clinical Proficiency at work
  • Planning and guiding end-of-life care of 120
    patients with various life limiting illnesses.
  • Integrating knowledge of theory, research
    findings from National Guideline Clearinghouse,
    and knowledge acquired during graduate education
    to develop comprehensive plans of care for
    patients and their families.

15
Design culturally sensitive programs and systems
of care that meet the needs of diverse and
vulnerable populations.
  • Demonstration of sensitivity to problems of
    vulnerable populations
  • During the MSN 514(Health Promotion Disease
    Prevention) I used the TransTheoretical Model
    (TTM) (Prochaska Velicer, 1997) to understand
    the readiness to change of youth with substance
    abuse problems and their families.
  • I use this model to ascertain the readiness to
    change habits when I write care plans for
    patients from vulnerable populations at clinical
    site and at work.

16
Provide evidence-based, clinically proficient
care using critical thinking skills in advanced
nursing roles.
  • Using evidence based interventions in Advanced
    Nursing Roles
  • I studied how to critically evaluate research in
    MSN 530 Research Utilization in Advanced Nursing
    Roles
  • I wrote a paper on Pediatric Palliative Care for
    MSN 513 Healthcare policy and economics. I
    received a good grade for this paper. I also
    found evidence of the obstacles to providing
    sensitive and adequate care to dying children
    (Carter et al, 2006) (Hayes, 2006).
  • I utilized knowledge gained from this paper to
    advocate for a separate IDT for children on
    Pediatric Palliative Care and the setting up of a
    non-profit, Havens Heart, at my workplace to
    assist with such care financially leading to
    improved parent satisfaction.

Integrate ethical theory and principles into
nursing theory, research and practice in advanced
nursing roles.
  • Using ethical principles at school
  • In my MSN 531 scholarly paper I learnt how
    ethical principles of autonomy and nonmaleficence
    (Beauchamp Childress, 2001) pertained to the
    care of a terminally ill South Asian lady and her
    family. I learnt how to empower this patient and
    her family, to take the decisions to allow her to
    pass on pain free, with dignity, at home amongst
    her dear ones, and according to her expressed
    wishes.

24
Integrate ethical theory and principles into
nursing theory, research and practice in advanced
nursing roles.
  • Using ethical principles at work
  • I use these ethical principles every day at work
    when I plan and direct the care of terminally ill
    patients. I do my best to protect their rights
    during a time when the spouse, significant other
    and family tend to overlook or override these
    rights. I use these principles while navigating
    our complex healthcare system to ensure patients
    receive the best care possible, with dignity.

    our professional organizations, influence health
    care policy.

    the other a Physician, at my clinical hours site.

28

other disciplines to influence improvement in
