Integration of Evidence-Based Practice Into Professional Nursing Practice
As the professional nurse, you realize that your nursing care area often sees patients with the same particularly challenging nursing care issue (not medical care issue). Include all of the following in your answer to this discussion.
Identify the nursing care issue or problem and justify why it is a nursing care issue in need of implementation of evidence. Remember, this should not be a medical issue.
Explain how you would search CINAHL for evidence on this topic (including search terms you would use) and how you would critically appraise the evidence found in your search. Note: You do not need to perform the search or provide an article for this discussion, but you may do so if you like.
Paterson and Zderad emphasize it is important to emphasize that in humanistic nursing theory, each nurse and each patient is taken to be a unique human being with his or her own particular gestalt. Gestalt, representing all that particular human beings are, includes all past experiences, all current being, and all hopes, dreams, and fears of the future that are experienced in one’s own space–-time dimension. Think about each of the listed components of one’s gestalt. Identify particular experiences that stand out in each and write these down. Review the components of your “personal gestalt” and describe how you believe these life experiences impact your practice of nursing.
