Peer 1 

I have had a lot of great mentors in my nursing career. From school professors to clinical mentors and even mentors when starting a new job at the hospital. One of my favorite mentors is from nursing school and she taught me so much. Her way of teaching best fit my learning style. Two days a week we would have class where we went over different materials and took quizzes, and the other three days were clinical days. During our clinical days she would challenge us for the week to find and learn at the hospital what we were learning that week in class. For me this helped with the hands-on learning. It is one thing to read it in a book but to be hands-on really helps me understand better. We would then gather as a group at the end of the day to talk about our experience. Having a group discussion helped us all understand how stuff could be done differently. I found this to be very helpful to me. The second mentor that taught me a lot is from my very first nursing job. She was good with stepping back when needing to be. She helped me learn my critical thinking skills. Working at night at my hospital we do not have a doctor in house, if we need orders, we call our providers.  If there happens to be an emergency on the floor our ER doctor will come up. I feel it is very critical to have good critical thinking skills when working at night due to our lack of resources. I also feel this was more of a hands-on learning experience. Instead of how some mentors teach, they like for the person to shadow and discuss stuff instead of being hands-on right away.  I have also picked this up when training new nurses. It also can depend on the nurse and their learning styles. Some nurse may not feel comfortable to be hands-on right away and that is ok too. I know throughout my nursing career I will continue to have many great mentors.

Mentoring

My mentor was my elementary school nurse who was also a family friend. She stressed the importance of how you must have the right attitude- a positive attitude. Respect is very important as well as listening. She was there for guidance and support and she led by example. On very stressful days at work when it would be easy to blow up, I think about my mentor and have to de-stress.

Methods from my mentor to improve educational experiences are always to smile, make eye contact with patients and call them by name. She encouraged you to learn as much as you can and don’t stop at an Associate degree.

Technology use is not meant to replace the person to person interaction that is essential in any nurse- patient encounter (pg 527). We as nurses can ensure the patient understands he/ she is at the center of our care by active listening, looking at the patient when talking and not continually at the computer. Patient centered care so that patients can provide their subjective experience as an input.(pg528) Presence is the act of being there and being with our patients fully focusing on their needs. Technology is great and does help us collect meaningful data and generate knowledge about patient situations, it is equally important to collect the human-to-human data that becomes available only when we step away from the technology and interact authentically with our patients. (pg534)

She always stated: “When you help others you help yourself, because what you give is what you get”

Assignment 2: Policy Identification

According to the Council on Social Work Education, Competency 5: Engage in Policy Practice:

Social workers understand that human rights and social justice, as well as social welfare and services, are mediated by policy and its implementation at the federal, state, and local levels. Social workers understand the history and current structures of social policies and services, the role of policy in service delivery, and the role of practice in policy development. Social workers understand their role in policy development and implementation within their practice settings at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels and they actively engage in policy practice to effect change within those settings. Social workers recognize and understand the historical, social, cultural, economic, organizational, environmental, and global influences that affect social policy. They are also knowledgeable about policy formulation, analysis, implementation, and evaluation. Social workers:

  • Identify social policy at the local, state, and federal level that impacts well-being, service delivery, and access to social services;
  • Assess how social welfare and economic policies impact the delivery of and access to social services;
  • Apply critical thinking to analyze, formulate, and advocate for policies that advance human rights and social, economic, and environmental justice.

This assignment is intended to help students demonstrate the behavioral components of this competency in their field education.

To prepare: Working with your field instructor, identify, evaluate, and discuss policies established by the local, state, and federal government (within the last five years) that affect the day to day operations of the field placement agency.

The Assignment (1-2 pages):

  • Describe the policies and their impact on the field agency.  http://www.shpch.com/
  • Propose specific recommendations regarding how you, as a social work intern, and the agency can advocate for policies pertaining to advancing social justice for the agency and the clients it serves.

Note: You are expected to present and discuss this assignment with your agency Field Instructor. Your field instructor will be evaluating your ability to demonstrate this competency in their field evaluation. In addition, you will submit this assignment for classroom credit. The Field Liaison will grade the assignment “PASS/FAIL,” see rubric for passing criteria.

By Day 7

To Prepare:

  • Reflect on the Resources related to digital information tools and technologies.
  • Consider your healthcare organization’s use of healthcare technologies to manage and distribute information.
  • Reflect on current and potential future trends, such as use of social media and mobile applications/telehealth, Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled asset tracking, or expert systems/artificial intelligence, and how they may impact nursing practice and healthcare delivery.

By Day 3 of Week 6

Post a brief description of general healthcare technology trends, particularly related to data/information you have observed in use in your healthcare organization or nursing practice. Describe any potential challenges or risks that may be inherent in the technologies associated with these trends you described. Then, describe at least one potential benefit and one potential risk associated with data safety, legislation, and patient care for the technologies you described. Next, explain which healthcare technology trends you believe are most promising for impacting healthcare technology in nursing practice and explain why. Describe whether this promise will contribute to improvements in patient care outcomes, efficiencies, or data management. Be specific and provide examples.
