This is the portion that I wrote about the case scenario. Professional nursing and client care
As a professional nurse, I know that patient requires consistent and repeated education about their disease, treatment, and risks and benefits of adherence. I will begin to work with this client toward better diabetes managements by treat her with respect and being open-minded and having a strong relationship with the client no matter what differences from she has. In addition, showing my caring for the patient in this difficult time and use the knowledge that I have about the diabetic to promoting health, to help the patient learn to care for herself, and to help empower the patient, teaching her to use available resources.
I will be honest with her and explain with confidence the consequences that she will facing if she kept doing what she has done. These are her comments: (You do a wonderful job exploring your role as a nurse. Good job. Now, I wish to see you write about the client?s possible point of view. What has she done exactly? Why has she done that? Would you ask the client her viewpoint? Here I might deduct a 1 point for depth. I would like you to write about your side of the issue, and the client?s side of the issue?.so multiple points of view. ) I knew that my duty and roles that, my position required me as professional nurse working with the patient is more important and maintaining professionalism has priority over my emotional reactions to the situation. It is about being true to the individual by caring for his needs and not letting his action interfere with the key task at hand patient welfare. The client would view as professional nursing care the same way I believe as respect, caring and have a knowledge and confidence to what I am doing.
