Grounded in the Institute of Medicine's five core competencies for healthcare professionals, the current edition logically flows from the basics of the nursing profession and the dynamics of patient care into critical healthcare delivery discussions, ranging from health policy and political action to community health and leadership in nursing practice. Each chapter features discussion questions, critical thinking activities, and "stop and consider" sections that encourage students to reflect on important chapter topics in meaningful ways. Students can further interact with text content in "Working Backwards to Develop a Case", an in-text feature that allows students to creatively apply what they have learned to their own unique case scenarios, bringing these foundational concepts to life.

References will be updated as appropriate. The following changes are proposed for this fifth edition.

Description : The project for development of nursing management system to promote high quality and effective nursing care endorses development of knowledge and nursing skills with the objective towards quality and safety of the patient as well as holding the status of excellence in nursing practice through education system and tools for development of nursing practice. Framework Professional Practice Model of OnSomble Model of Professional Role has been utilized and applied for development of professional nursing practice in practice, collaboration, communication and professional development, and review tools in order to promote a development in nursing practice at individual and team nursing level. Nurses will be encouraged to develop critical thinking through three effective questions (what went well, what could have gone better, what I will do differently for the next time) and use of simulation in the workplace. The objective of this project is to promote satisfaction among patients and parents, which can be measured by randomly asking the patients on a monthly basis for Overall Patient Satisfactions Assessment by HCAHP with the target of 90% or greater, and also randomly asking the patients on a monthly basis for Ability of Nurse to Inspire Trust and Confidence in Patients with the target of 80% or greater. A yearly questionnaire to evaluate staffu2019s confidence in their nursing care capacity will also be reflected through Staff Engagement Score with the target of 80% or greater and the turnover rate of the nursing staffs being less than or equal to 12%.Due to this project, not only the patient's satisfaction with the care and treatment is enhanced, but the nurses will also have more confidence in working professionally. Nursing Competency - knowledge, skills, and ability - are continuously developed. In addition, it was found that what was gained from the nursing capacity development project was the opportunity to create relationships among other professions, which will be learning together at the bedside, sharing information and knowledge, and working as a team. Interprofessional refers to the shared relationship among individuals, groups, and organization from different disciplines through the use of simulations scenario with multidisciplinary team and effective questions are used to encourage critical thinking to optimize the benefits for patients and families.

Description : Functioning as both a graduate textbook and a professional resource, Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice explores the historical and evolving role of the doctorally-prepared Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). Because the role of the DNP graduate is evolving, the primary authors and contributing authors of this text present positions and reflective responses that represent a diverse range of current views on the DNP role and the diverse 'ideals' of what the role of the doctorally-prepared APRN should be. This is also the first text to market that exclusively examines the evolving and expanding role functions of the DNP graduate. Too often, nursing texts offer the sole view of the author. This one uniquely does not. The highlight of this text is the two-part chapter organization that presents the chapter content followed by a Reflective Response, which is commentary that may counter or support the opinions of the chapter author. Each Reflective Response is written by well-known DNP leaders representing the diverse roles and experience of academics, administrators and practitioners. This innovative chapter presentation is bound to provide for more stimulating classroom discussion. This work is stimulating and possibly provocative, but in the end is a well-rounded, landmark presentation of a wide range of topics surrounding education of the DNP, the core competencies and the unfolding DNP role development. It is a 'must have' text for use in all DNP role development courses and courses covering contemporary DNP degree issues! Each of the textbook's sections thoroughly covers important aspects of role development: Section I: provides background information on the evolution of the DNP degree; essential content on role theory; what nursing "roles" are and how they evolved; and a discussion of how masters versus doctoral level advanced nursing practices differ Section II: focuses on the four basic roles of the DNP graduate which currently predominate: practitioner, clinical executive, educator, and clinical trials research scientist, as well as the role of the clinical scholar which each graduate is expected to be Section III: covers the diverse skills that comprise the doctoral APRN role; including leadership content, negotiation skills, and leveraging technology to support doctoral advanced level practice; debate over the DNP Exam; discussion of DNP grads using the title "Dr"; and how the doctoral APRN can use their new competencies to function at a higher level
