Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Pflegemanagement / Sozialmanagement, Fachhochschule Jena (Fachbereich Sozialwesen), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Veränderungen im Gesundheitswesen durch laufende Reformen und Restrukturierungen sind vielfältig. Schon seit Jahren sind demografische Tendenzen wie die älter werdende Bevölkerung, Zunahme chronischer Krankheiten, veränderte Familienstrukturen und ein Wertewandel in der Gesellschaft bekannt. Die Aufgaben der Pflege werden in diesem Zusammenhang immer komplexer, während die finanziellen Mittel und Ressourcen knapper werden. Es zeigte sich, dass mit herkömmlichen Ausbildungs- und Organisationsstrukturen den ehemaligen und zukünftigen Herausforderungen nur zum Teil entsprochen werden konnte. Neuartige Problemstellungen verlangten nach anderen Werten, Methoden und Instrumenten. Um diesen Herausforderungen gerecht zu werden, hat die Schweizer Bildungslandschaft in der Pflege 1983 begonnen, pflegespezifische Fachausbildungen in der Pflege zu etablieren, um somit der Pflegepraxis neues Wissen und Können zugänglich zu machen. Zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt stellen sehr unterschiedliche Fachausbildungen einen festen Bestandteil der Schweizer Pflegebildungslandschaft dar. Pflegende mit einer abgeschlossenen Fachausbildung gelten als die Spezialistinnen für klinische Pflege. Ungeachtet dieser fachlichen Anerkennung bedeutet die Rollenfindung im jeweiligen Praxisfeld für die meisten Absolventinnen solcher Weiterbildungen eine große Herausforderung. Ständig wechselnde Bedingungen des Gesundheitswesens und institutionellen Gegebenheiten bei der Rollenanpassung müssen in deren Berufsbild mit einbezogen werden. Diese Literaturarbeit stellt die Entwicklung der Pflegeexpertinnen in der Schweiz vor. Ziel der Arbeit ist es darzustellen, wie sich das Berufsprofil Pflegeexpertin entsprechend der pflegefachlichen Herausforderungen unter veränderten politischen Strukturen im Gesundheitswesen entwickelt hat. Ein Bezug der Tätigkeit von Pflegeexpertinnen in Deutschland wird hergestellt.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pflegewissenschaften, Note: keine, Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena, ehem. Fachhochschule Jena (Fachbereich Sozialwesen), Veranstaltung: Masterstudiengang Pflegewissenschaften/Pflegemanagement, 54 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In den folgenden Ausführung wird es darum gehen, die APN Rolle näher zu bestimmen. In dem Prozess der Rollenentwicklung wird offensichtlich, dass auf bestehende traditionelle Rollen, wie der Clinical Nurse Specialicts (CNS) und Nurse Practitioner (NP), zurückgegriffen wurde. Nachdem die Diskussion um die APN Rolle auch Europa erreicht hat und diese mittlerweile Bestandteil von Hochschulausbildung mit Abschluss Master of Science (M.Sc.) ist, wird die Frage dringender, wie sich diese Rolle in bestehende Rollen des Gesundheitssystems integrieren lassen. Diskussionen dazu gibt es praktisch nicht bzw. nur sehr wenige. Einig ist man sich weltweit, dass die APN über einen Hochschulabschlusses in Form eines Masterabschluss (Waterhouse, 2002; Darmody, 2005; Yates et al. 2007) verfügt. Die Rolle selbst setzt sich aus verschiedenen Rollen, wie beispielsweise Beraterin, Verwalterin direkt Pflegende, Leitende und Forscherin. Ebenfalls sind die Kompetenzen vielschichtig und umfassen unter anderen komplexe Pflegesituationen, Anwendung von Evidence Based Nursing oder Entwicklung von gruppenspezifischen Angeboten (Familie, Gemeinde etc.). Insbesondere braucht es ein breites Verständnis der Pflegenden darüber, was überhaupt Advanced Nursing Practice und der daraus resultierenden Advanced Practice Nurse Rolle für die Praxis und Zukunft bedeutet. Hauptanliegen der Professionalisierung darf nicht die Spaltung der Pflege in akademisch und nicht akademisch sein, sondern eine professionelle und qualitätsvolle Pflege für die Bürger in Deutschland sicherzustellen.

Im Zuge der Einfuhrung von Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP) in Osterreich, wird der Fokus vermehrt auf die Implementierung von erforschten Modellen und Konzepten, hinsichtlich der Optimierung der Praxis, gelegt. Eine klar definierte Aufgabe von Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) ist es, eine Praxis zu entwickeln, die auf aktuellen, Evidenz-basierten Forschungserkenntnissen beruht. Diese sollen ebenso in das Gesundheitsmanagement und die professionelle Pflege eingebunden werden. Advanced Nursing Practice soll sich der Forschung bedienen, um die pflegerische Betreuung zu verbessern. Auch der Bereich der Edukation in der Pflege ist gerade fur Advanced Practice Nurses ein wichtiges Arbeitsfeld. Viele Frauen ergreifen diese Berufswahl erst eher spat. Wenn sie diese Wahl aber aus eigener Motivation heraus treffen, dann sind sie hochmotiviert die Ausbildung erfolgreich abzuschliessen. Die vorliegende Studie analysiert, wie die Motivation zur Wahl einer Ausbildung im Zusammenhang mit dem Engagement wahrend der Ausbildung steht. Das Phanomen intrinsischer Motivation der interviewten Teilnehmerinnen der Heimhilfeausbildung soll erfasst und anschliessend denkbare Unterstutzungsmoglichkeiten durch Advanced Nursing Practice im Bereich der Edukation dargelegt werden."

Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title! "A challenge ahead for nursing is to take the path of most resistance rather than the easier road of least resistance. The debate needs to continue...[by focusing on] whether nursing is teaching an appropriate level of inquiry including philosophy and methodologies specific to those real-world, rapidly changing conditions that characterize today's practice environment." From the Foreword by Sally J. Reel, PhD, RN, FNP, BC, FAAN, FAANP University of Arizona College of Nursing "I have taught a philosophy of science course intermittently for about 20 years. Philosophy of Science for Nursing Practice is not only the most succinct, insightful, well-organized presentation of information I've yet seen, but drives thinking to where it ought to be." Laura Cox Dzurec, PhD, PMHCNS-BC Dean and Professor Kent State University College of Nursing "This appears to be the first book that focuses on the philosophy of science and its application to practice doctorates. The authors assume readers may not have a formal background in the philosophy of science, and write in a conversational tone with a minimum of difficult terminology. They discuss the current state of DNP education in a way that can foster discourse and debate." Score: 97, 5 Stars. --Doody’s Medical Reviews Tailored for both DNP and PhD doctoral nursing programs, this text is the first to focus on philosophy of science applications to the discipline of nursing. The authors, a philosopher and a nurse-scholar who co-teach the course upon which this volume is based, address a growing need for increased philosophy of science content in evolving DNP programs, as well as practice-oriented research considerations for this discipline. The volume presents a creative use of the social, political, and historical content in which nursing has evolved. As a whole, this extremely important text reassures the student of the fluid and palpable connections between philosophy of science and nursing science and practice. Key Features: Explores the concept of nursing as a practice profession and assesses how much philosophy of science is needed for doctoral nursing students. Examines the practical application of the philosophy of science to both DNP and PhD students. Addresses the basic principles and concepts of the philosophy of science and their practical application for contemporary practice inquiry. Provides an overview of the century-long path to the development of nursing science that is an essential "bridge" to the philosophy of science content and serves as a "next step" towards building a nursing epistemology Reinforces important connections between the philosophy of science to nursing science and nursing practice.

Caring is imperative in nursing and therefore an important element of any nursing course. This book demonstrates through narratives and real life case studies, how students can become better carers in their own practice. The text considers 'caring indicators' and how they can benefit nursing practice; these indicators include showing a willingness to enter a caring discourse, displaying authenticity, being proactive, promoting dignity and giving the patient confidence in your ability to listen and help them. The narratives throughout the text really engage the student as they draw on real world experiences, using them as a ‘springboard for learning’. The book looks at the caring relationship, before moving on to more specific situations such as caring in difficult situations, knowing yourself, emotional resilience, and the future of caring. This book is useful as a core text for CFP and Year 1 of Branch study; adopting a practical and applied approach throughout, it gets to the heart of student anxieties and questions.
