My goal as a family nurse practitioner student is to attain the highest clinical competence and professional practice. I completed the self-assessment with the intention of reflecting on my competency level and setting goals to continue learning throughout my practicum. I completed the assessment and chose Person Centered Care as my theory. It allowed me to set 3-4 objectives, which were all part of a larger goal that I identified. This was in order to improve on existing skills, increase knowledge, and sharpen my abilities for completing practicum.
Choice of Theory for Person-Centered Car
Today, person-centered healthcare (PCC), is a growing trend among healthcare professionals. PCC is a way for nurse practitioners to give priority to patient needs and create a safe, therapeutic atmosphere. It allows us recognize how individual circumstances can shape beliefs and behaviours while personalizing care plans around those beliefs and behaviours (Johns & Potter, 2018). PCC promotes healing by enabling patients and their families to partner (Roju, et. al., 2019). Given its holistic focus on individuals within their context rather than focusing solely on health problems; PCC aligns with both my own values as a practitioner as well as those recommended by experts in Family Nursing Practitioner education (Johns & Potter, 2018).
Practicum Goals & Objectives
I want to improve my existing skills and learn new information that will allow me to successfully complete a practicum using Person Centered Care principles. This is my goal.
Goal 1: Apply theories of evidence-based clinical practice to evaluate patients at each shift.
Objective 2: To demonstrate competency in assessing physical/psychosocial symptoms across lifespan by engaging in family centred care during every patient assessment .
3. Objective: Recognize the need for specialists by accurately summarizing current medical information and assessing each patient.
Objective 4: Enhance communication with coworkers through active listening skills when discussing each patient’s management plan.
Nurse practitioners need to incorporate person-centered care theories into their practice when looking at the future of healthcare delivery. Such models provide us with effective frameworks which support addressing individualized needs along with tailoring interventions that best suits those demands therein promoting positive health outcomes efficiently .. By setting these reasonable achievable goals using SMART strategy followed up continuously monitoring progress throughout associated learnt experiences become more prepared assume full responsibility autonomous roles field upon graduation journey undertaken has significantly contributed development necessary skill sets required independent functioning nurses practitioner..
