I have a little more than two years working experience as a nurse on the medical surgical floor that focuses on orthopedic and bariatric patients. I also have another job as a medication assistant at Austin Community College (ACC). This job allows me to collaborate with a nursing instructor by educating level one nursing students in a hospital setting in medication administration safety, basic nursing skills, critical thinking skills, evidence-based practice, core measures, and providing effective and holistic nursing care.
My goals as a nurse is to build a trusting relationship with my patients and promote the patient’s sense of control in order to attain quality, holistic health. These goals are very similar with my ACC students. As I assist in teaching them how to reach their potential as a future nurse, I want us to trust each other, and I want them to be autonomous in researching answers themselves to provide quality care. My nursing care before this class was more focused on evidence-based practice since I did not consciously incorporate theory into my bedside practice.
This personal framework paper will review my personal values, beliefs, and nursing philosophy in relation to my bedside nursing practice and medication assistant position. I will describe Erickson, Tomlin, and Swain’s Modeling and Role Modeling Theory (MRMT) and how it applies to the nursing metaparadigm and my nursing practice. I will further compare and contrast the theory of Modeling and Role Modeling to my philosophy and approach to nursing, and describe a situation in which my framework could have been applied.
Empiricism is a philosophy that views reason, predictability, and explanation are key to knowing the truth and proving why a phenomenon occurs. Knowledge and beliefs are obtained through evidence and experience. Observations through experiences serve as facts,…...

...Theoretical Framework Operations management is the business function that plans, organizes, coordinates, and controls the resources needed to produce a company’s goods and services. It involves the responsibility of ensuring that business operations are efficient in terms of using the least possible resources as needed, and effective in terms of meeting the customer needs. Needs are the basic forces that drives consumers to take actions and engaged in exchanges. The desire to satisfy these needs is what motivates a man to act, but the satisfaction of these needs must be done in the order of their priority so that a higher need does not strongly motivate a person unless the next preceding lower need has been substantially satisfied. For each society there is a set of needs perceived by the people that they feel should be satisfied as part of the development process. It is usually recognized that needs could be generated by physiological deprivation or by a positive desire to have something. It is also recognized that those needs generated by deprivation are typical and that usually one of needs is based on attaining certain goals. The humanistic approach espoused by Abraham Maslow, leader in Humanistic Psychology believes that Thus man is perpetually wanting animal. Ordinarily the satisfaction of these wants is not altogether mutually exclusive, but only tends to be. The average member of society is most often partially satisfied and partially unsatisfied in all of......

Differentiation Framework

...Differentiation Framework Throughout our lesson we have learned about people decisions and how many different important factors play a part in becoming a successful manager. Understanding how to make strategic decisions and how its importance to a company is crucial, in order for growth and success to be produced. An important factor in a company success is having in the right people in the right positions. Differentiation is a way to manage people and businesses. Differentiation can be used as a management system to determine the right people and business strategies that will transform a company to be exceptional. Although, differentiation is a unique approach, it will separate the strong from the weak bottom performing people. Many companies fail because they don’t make it a priority to manage their people by a management system. Majority of the time the organization depends upon the personal style of the leader in charge to manage their people; they have no strategies in place to guide them. Companies should design a workforce in a particular way that will add value and grow the company strategic objectives. Differentiation is a management system that could help lead to the success of a company tremendously. 1. Discuss the strengths, pitfalls, and underlying assumptions of differentiating employees in the manner suggested in Jack Welch’s frameworks. According to Welch, companies suffer when every business and person is treated equally and bets are......

...1. Theoretical Framework of Dorothea Orem’s Nursing Theory, BSN 2. ……….BSN NUR/513 Theoretical Framework of Dorothea Orem’s Nursing Theory The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of Orem’s theoretical framework and analyze the critical components of the conceptual nursing model. Orem’s Self Care Deficit Theory is widely used in models of nursing. Orem chaired the Nursing Development Conference Group which examined nursing problems and research. Orem’s interest in curriculum development arise ++her interest in formulating a conceptualization of nursing. Theoretical Framework Orem presented her conceptual framework consisting of four concepts about persons and two about nursing and theories derived from this model – the self care deficit theory. The theory of self care, and the theory of nursing system. Concepts in the model are self care, self care agency, self care demand, self care deficit nursing agency, and nursing system (Fitzpatrick & Hall, 2005). Orem sees nursing as a science, technology, art, and a helping service given to a person with a legitimate need for it by nurses who have specialized knowledge and skills. Nurses help clients meet existing or anticipated demands for self care in order to sustain life and health, recover from disease or injury and cope with their effects (Fawcett, 2005). When speaking of nursing, Orem uses the terms nursing and nursing agency. Orem described the human being as an integrated whole composed of an internal......

Personal Framework

...The Journey into Cultural Care and Diversity in Nursing: A Personal Framework I have had the opportunity to work in many different areas of nursing, and have learned a great deal regarding cultural care and diversity among patients and their families. I have used my past experiences in each different unit and healthcare facility to improve my communication and rapport with my patients and their families to improve the continuity of care. I have been exposed to patients from different countries, cultures, and religions on a daily basis. I believe that it is crucial for the nurse to build a trusting non-judgmental relationship with the patient and their families to show compassion. When caring for patients I listen to their concerns, decrease the stress levels and improve communication and recovery. As a nurse I must take in consideration the culture and religion in which they come from, and care for them appropriately to avoid upset and miscommunication. My goal and focus is to use holistic care to provide the patient with a successful recovery. My personal framework paper will be expressing my own personal journey as a bedside nurse and using my own personal beliefs, values, and philosophies related to caring for culturally diverse patients. Madeleine Leininger’s Cultural Care Diversity and Universality Theory, and the nursing metaparadigm will be discussed, and shown how it is incorporated into my daily nursing practice.

Ethical Frameworks

...Applying Ethical Frameworks in Practice Richard Doria Grand Canyon University NRS -437 V Nov 16, 2014 Applying Ethical Frameworks in Practice Patient confidentiality can be often breached without the intention of doing it. This happens when staff discusses patient information in crowds or small groups, patient notes on the computer being left open and unattended, and documents that are not being filed properly and stay visible to the next patient. Confidentiality is not necessarily absolute even though it is a patient’s right. Certain situations exist where medical staff is obligated to breach confidentiality, especially when they feel that it is in the patient’s interest to do so. The following are implications of breaching confidentiality: “1) breaching confidentiality fails to respect patient autonomy, 2) violation of patient confidentiality is a form of betrayal, and 3) patients have a right to confidentiality that has frequently been demonstrated in common law and in some specific areas outlined in statute law” (, 2010). Confidentiality is a principle in nursing that makes nurses preserve the privacy of their patients and grant them their autonomy. Respect for the patients is being shown while maintaining confidentiality. This task makes nurses, physicians, and other medical staff accountable. Breaching confidentiality has a major tendency to cause harm or the patient refusing further medical care. “Undue harm can be described as......

...Running head: ETHICAL FRAMEWORKS Ethical Frameworks Anna Marie Santana Grand Canyon University Ethical Decision Making in Helath Care NRS-437V Marianne Murray May 19, 2011 Ethical Frameworks Introduction Ethical decisions in healthcare are difficult. This is why it is essential for nurses to understand how to approach these problems and when to ask for help. Privacy and confidentiality are ethical issues where there may be confusion regarding the best course of action to take. Nurses need to know the laws and patient obligations regarding these issues. In Health care we have a law called HIPAA, (HIPAA.ORG, 2008) that ensures patient privacy. It is crucial for nurses to understand the regulations relevant to confidentiality in order to practice within the guidelines of the law. In the article "Bioethics on NBC's ER: Betraying Trust or Providing Good Care? When is it ok to Break Confidentiality?" (Nathanson, 2000), the author addresses an ethical issue that incites ethical conflict for a nurse. In order to coerce two young girls reluctant to seek medical help, Nurse Hathaway made a promise that no matter what she learns about them during the exam she will not divulge this information to the parents or anyone else. Finding out that her patient 14 year old patient not only had HPV, but also cervical cancer from participating in sex parties with multiple partners, Nurse Hathaway is faced with an ethical decision. Nurse Hathaway must decide to honor her patient’s......

Ethical Framework

...Running Head: EITHICAL FRAMEWORK Ethical Framework Grand Canyon University: NRS437V June 14, 2010 Ethical Framework As a professional health care worker, the implication confidentiality breach regarding ethical dilemmas are significant to nurse and patient. The information disclosed can cause problems on a personal and professional level. Breach of confidentiality occurs when the heath care work discloses the patient's medical or personal information without the patient's informed written or verbal consent. Confidentiality is needed between the nurse and the patient to maintain a good open and honest relationship between both parties. There are several ethical implications regarding breach of confidentiality, for example, patient trust, nurse responsibility, and disclosure of important information regarding treatment; however, there are certain situations when disclosing information is legally and ethically required. The ethical implication of confidentiality breach are not only legal but ethically important and the responsibility of a nurse or any other health care work. The nurse must keep "her word" of honesty to help gain the patient's trust. The nurse is then able to gain the vital information that may help to appropriately care for the patient and preserve continuity of care. In the article by Pamela G. Nathanson entitled "Betraying Trust of Providing Good Care? When is it Okay to Break Confidentiality," nurse Hathaway actions where appropriate in informing...

I now scrub and circulate neurology, urology, ENT (ear, nose and throat), and plastic surgeries. I am also a charge nurse and in charge of orienting new nurses and graduate nurses. The OR is fast paced and challenging. One never knows what is going to come through the doors, but you have to be ready at any given moment, to do anything from removing tonsils to clipping an aneurysm, in a matter of minutes. In the OR, often times the team gets caught up in tasks that need to be performed to get the case going, and sometimes forget that a human being is lying on the table with both physical and emotional needs. That is why, I teach my new graduates and everyone that I precept to act like it is a member of their family lying on the table. Often times just a friendly word or a smile before the patient is put under anesthesia can make a world of difference. If there is time, I also update the family to what is going on in the OR and try to answer any......

Descriptive Framework

...Descriptive Framework The virtual organization that I selected for the Organizational Communication Analysis is Kelsey Elementary School. As a mother of a fifth grader, I am always interested in the communication efforts associated with elementary schools. In the past, school administrators and teachers were only able to communicate in person, through written correspondence, or by telephone. The technological advancements of the 21st century provide school faculty with the opportunity to connect with others using a plethora of communication methods, but the first step to conducting an Organizational Communication Analysis is to develop a framework that provides a clear description of the school. Kelsey Elementary School According to the school’s webpage, Kelsey Elementary, in partnership with families and the community, is dedicated to the growth and development of each student in a positive learning environment that will contribute to each student’s lifelong learning in a changing society. Kelsey Elementary is often used as a representation of all other elementary schools in the Kelsey Unified School District. Enrollment for the current school year is 500 students in grades Kindergarten through five. The city of Kelsey has a vested interest in the success of all students attending the city’s educational institutions. Kelsey Elementary is a primary stepping stone for students on their educational journey therefore; a solid educational foundation is vital. The......

Building a Personal Framework

...Building a Personal Framework I have spent most of career practicing nursing in the surgical setting. I was a staff nurse on an orthopedic surgical unit for the first two and a half years after graduating from an associate’s degree nursing program. I then went back to my home of the Operating Room (OR), previously working as an OR Assistant prior to going to nursing school. I joined the cardiovascular team in the OR during my orientation period and absolutely loved it. Four years later I began my journey in nursing leadership. My first leadership position was the supervisor of an operating room, and was promoted to a nurse manager a few years later. Looking back, I’m not sure how I remained in management, I had little to no mentorship or guidance. Since then I have developed a passion for mentoring nurses and helping them be successful in both staff and leadership roles. Performing both inpatient and outpatient procedures, I get to be involved in the care of healthy and ill adult patients undergoing surgery, endoscopic procedures, and pain management procedures. I have a holistic approach to nursing care, and place the patient in the center of the care they receive during their stay. Of course, there are times during a patient’s stay, the focus must be placed in a particular area, such as patient safety in the operating room. Another important focus while the patient is undergoing surgery is the patient’s family and loved ones. We adopted a standardized process......

It Frameworks

...comes in to play. As highlighted in Dr. Steven Hornik’s September 22nd presentation on frameworks, there is a disconnect between the need for IT Governance and the practices of corporate executives. This research paper will be geared toward the education of corporate executives on IT Governance, various frameworks available for use, and the importance of knowledge and implementation due to accounting regulations. There will be 4 key elements covered: Introduction to Enterprise and IT Governance and the frameworks available, the importance of integrating accounting compliance regulations with IT security due to the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) act, a compare and contrast of the top frameworks with a compiled list of best practices from all the various frameworks, and finally a recommendation to executives. PART I. Stakeholders becoming increasingly concerned about the sound management of their interests have led to the emergence of governance principles and standards for overall enterprise governance. (Board Briefing on IT Governance) ITGI defines Enterprise (Corporate) Governance as, “a set of responsibilities and practices exercised by the board and executive management with the goal of providing strategic direction, ensuring that objectives are achieved, ascertaining that risks are managed appropriately and verifying that the enterprise’s resources are used responsibly.” Widely used frameworks for enterprise governance due to requirement for SOX compliance are the Committee......
