Week 1 Discussion

Continuing Your Education Reflection

This is a time to celebrate the talents you bring with you to your continuing knowledge development. It is a time for discovery, reflection, and professional development. You have had many experiences in educational settings. Unlike a child in school, the adult learner brings a wealth of experiences to the learning environment. The experiences of the adult learner may be varied, but they occurred in a certain environment or context and have meaning to the individual. To understand this meaning requires careful examination of your situation.

Post Requirements

First, consider the reasons you have returned to school. You may think that the recognition for your work or the pay differential on your career ladder is the reason. These may be considerations, but you are embarking on a journey of professional development that will further your knowledge, skills, and abilities, compared with a quick fix to a limiting situation. You will be facing the challenges of competing roles and addressing priorities in time management.

Reflect carefully and identify your reasons for continuing your nursing education.

Discuss how this will impact your educational progress.

Week 2 Discussion

Cultural Competency

Ray’s (2016) theoretical model of Transcultural Caring Dynamics in Nursing and Healthcare contains four dimensions: the essence of caring, transcultural caring ethics, transcultural context, and universal sources (religion/spirituality). You are working on a busy pediatric oncology unit at a local children’s hospital.

Post Requirements

Choose one of the following three families, propose your initial activities with these families in order to demonstrate transcultural caring through awareness, understanding and choice.

Ricci is a 3-year old recently diagnosed with neuroblastoma. His parents are migrant workers at the local peach orchard who follow the harvests in the southern region. They migrated from Mexico 3 years ago and have an extended family by blood and occupation. Ricci is an only child. The maternal grandmother has been at Ricci’s bedside constantly since the parents both work long hours. His parents visit nightly, come groomed and dressed in their “best church clothes,” and bring dinner accompanied by a friend or two, all with prayer, fear, and concern. Describe your initial activities with these individuals and groups in order to demonstrate transcultural caring through awareness, understanding, and choice.

Lei is a 3-year-old diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic anemia (ALL). Her parents own a nail salon close to the hospital but live with Lei and her 6-year-old brother and an extended cultural family outside the city. One parent came to the United States at the same age as Lei, while the other was born in this country. Since her parents work extended hours, they have arranged additional staffing from their cultural family for the salon and have arranged for the paternal grandmother to visit from Viet Nam to assist with Lei’s care. Lei shared with you a cherished item her grandmother gave her from the recent Chinese New Year Celebration. Describe your initial activities with these individuals and groups in order to demonstrate transcultural caring through awareness, understanding, and choice.

LeeAnn is a 12-year-old gymnast recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the right knee. She lives with her divorced mother and a full-time live in nanny/housekeeper. Her mother is a neurophysiologist at a major medical center across town currently working on a major research grant. LeeAnn has had the same “nanny” since she was 2 years old who had been taking her to her gymnastic practices and events when she had a fall that led to the diagnosis. Her mother visits in the evening and calls for updates and the nanny/housekeeper spends most days during treatments and nights at the hospital. Describe your initial activities with these individuals and groups in order to demonstrate transcultural caring through awareness, understanding, and choice.

Provide an example in which telehealth nursing increased the quality of a patient's life.

List three essential attributes that a good telehealth nurse needs to possess.

DQ2 Economics and HealthCare Policy

Ms. Jones is a 30-year-old client with a history of abdominal cramping, diarrhea that alternates with constipation, flatulence, and generalized discomfort. She had a complete panel of blood tests, and she undergoes a barium enema and a colonoscopy; the results of all the tests are normal. She is given a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, a functional disorder that occurs when the lower gastrointestinal tract does not work as effectively as it should. The health care provider explained to Ms. Jones that her condition cannot be cured but that it can be managed. On a subsequent visit to the clinic, Ms. Jones requests an MRI. The nurse mentions this request to the provider who feels that the procedure is not necessary for the following reasons: it would not provide information that would alter the diagnosis or the management of her condition, nor would the test improve her condition. Ms. Jones insists; she tells the provider that her insurance policy would cover the diagnostic procedure for the purpose of investigating abdominal pain with the exception of a $20 copayment that she would pay.

Post Requirements

Why should Ms. Jones be discouraged from receiving the MRI if the insurance company will pay for it (estimated cost $2000 to $4000) and she is willing to pay the $20 copay? (Or should she be discouraged?)

DQ3 Health Policy and Politics

Post Requirements

Assume that your representative has indicated that he or she will likely vote against a bill that you feel is essential for decreasing the nursing shortage. Describe what you can do to be more effective in swaying the legislator's vote. What could nurses do that would have the opposite effect and create barriers to affecting the representative's vote?

In what ways do you think you can influence political outcomes?
