Appendix A

Clinical Practice Philosophy

            I see my future as a nurse practitioner as an opportunity to further serves my area of service as a quality health-care provider. I hope to improve access to health-care in the rural area in which I live.  Working in primary care my goal is to encourage preventative medicine and early intervention for the patients I am serving by practicing evidence-based practice medicine. I will serve my patients with dignity, maintaining their privacy while hopefully not only improving their health, but by also improving their knowledge of their health and their illnesses. Values that I hold very important to being an NP include: educated, research-minded, caring, honest, hard-working, always looking to learn more, and willing to advocate strongly for the healthcare of my patients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Appendix B:

Objectives for my job as an NP

  1. To obtain a job in a primary health care clinic where my education as an advanced health care nurse and my experience as a nurse will positively influence the clinic where I am employed.
  2. I also hope to improve the public's knowledge of the health-care services provided by the clinic; especially the preventative health care options that the patient's insurance will cover. I would plan on achieving this objective by creating health-fairs, pamphlets, and possibly even by utilizing social media to increase the knowledge of the clinic to public.

Courses I have taken in my MSN program thus far:

  • NFH 692- Family Nurse Practitioner Residency: 

 

This course is the culminating experience for the student to practice in the role of a family nurse practitioner.  This course emphasizes the application of previously learned theories and knowledge from nursing and other disciplines to the continued development of clinical decision-making skills.  The student will implement the role of the family nurse practitioner to manage the health care of clients (i.e., individuals, families, groups) in primary care settings.

It is anticipated that the student will be increasingly independent and skilled as the clinical experience progresses allowing him/her to contribute more toward the management of health problems.
