Suggested reading to prepare for self-assessment: APA Help Guide & ANA Scope and Standards of PracticeLifelong learning and professional development

To prepare for completion of the scholarly paper:

1. Investigate the organizational philosophy, mission and vision of several healthcare

facilities including hospitals, residential care centers and community care organizations.
These must have nurses that work for them.

2. Locate an organization that aligns with your own personal values. This may be a

facility located in your local community, across the country or around the world.

To complete the paper, include a discussion of the following (make each a paragraph and do not change the order of paragraphs or combine). Paraphrase information from source – no direct quotes allowed:

· Discuss and differentiate historical and contemporary issue(s) in the nursing profession (cite). This could be one issue that has changed over time (or) a discussion of an important historical issue in nursing as well as a more current issue in today’s nursing.

· Examine and identify nursing values, knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to model professional nursing practice. How will your values be integrated into your chosen organization? How do your values link or tie to your organization to be a ‘successful’ nurse in this organization? Be sure to identify your organization and cite it when stating information about that organization.

· Identify your lifelong learning approach(es) (approach to learning over your lifetime) that will support both excellence in nursing and how they will support your chosen organization’s philosophy, mission, and values. Do not include their mission statement – you may refer to important parts of it however (if you cite it).

· Discuss the significance of spiritual beliefs and values to promoting health from a patient standpoint (cite if from a source). Apply this to patients and NOT nurses and avoid negative correlations. (References in APA must be within the last 5 years)

· Explain
how actual ‘care’ for vulnerable populations is impacted
or affected by attitudes, values, and expectations of the nurse, the patient, or both. Briefly discuss the professional nurse as role model to the client. This is not asking you to explain how a nurse should care for someone or what would happen if the nurse is not ‘nice.’
How is care impacted by the above?

· Describe a technique for behavioral change (cite this) that would promote health and manage illness when caring for self, family, and community populations. This needs to be an actual technique that has been developed to change a non-healthy behavior. Apply this to patients and NOT nurses.

· Describe what nursing practice excellence means to you. Develop/discuss your plan for professional development that includes short-term and a long-term goals and addresses practice excellence, life-long learning, and professional engagement. Briefly touch on the significance of self-care as a nurse.
