Week 3 – Intraprofessional collaboration- Example: Teaching nursing staff how the effectiveness of the practice change that you are proposing will benefit their patients and ultimately improve the level of nursing care and patient ou
(Sample) Week 3 (February 4-10)
Week 3 required me to submit six of the peer review articles previously researched along with the strength and weakness. We also discussed different methods of evaluating evidence with compare and contrast. The PICOT statement paper was also submitted which I did my best on but was a bit disappointed with the grades. I spoke with my mentor to figure out where I went wrong and came up with different ideas on how to approach papers moving forward. Finding better peer review articles was one of our solution along with narrowing them down to what best fits my PICOT. I also spend some time reflecting on Ethical consideration in Healthcare. Most of the times, nurses struggle due to the ethical challenges associated with patient care. Ethical concerns may come up within any healthcare circumstance whereby moral questions of whether one was right or wrong are asked. As a nurse, I was able to acquire knowledge on the importance of ethical culture in the health facility I was working. Ethical culture can be defined as the way ethical circumstances that develop ethical problems are addressed within a facility. Ethical practices in nursing can be sustained by constantly engaging with ethical experts. The experts play a key role in the collection of code of ethics that have various guidelines and recommendations that indicate how to effectively respond to ethical issues (Char, 2018).
Week 4 – Health care delivery and clinical systems – Formulate a system or organization change in patient care process that improves the patient outcomes or determines a solution to an organizational problem. Example: Your mentor tells you that the nurses are always changing shifts, and this has become a problem as some shifts do not get adequately covered due to overlapping personal schedules. You form a rotating schedule, so nurses will know in advance of their work schedule on an Excel spread sheet that shows how the rotating schedule would work and submit it to nursing management

I had the opportunity to spend a few hours with my mentor in the anticoagulation center. After completing what I was assigned to do for the patients that day, my mentor and I looked over the peer review I choose to complete the literature evaluation table. DQ’s were also done. After a thorough and meaningful research, we narrowed down to eight peer review articles. I decided to reflect upon Health Policy this week. Health policy can be defined as the decisions, plan and actions incorporated to achieve various health care objectives in the society. Health policy decisions in the United States are made at the federal and congress level and also by other healthcare organizations. As a nurse, I have learnt that nurses play a significant role in the formulation of policies that will have great benefits not only in the short run but also in the long run. A majority of nursing agencies encourage nurses to actively participate in policy formulation. As a nurse, I can participate in the policy formulation process by analyzing various healthcare policies and laws, advising policy makers and the general public and also developing and proposing various healthcare policies.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
