I’ve learnt a lot during the last 6 months.

Take a critical philosophical look at nursing ideas. Theories of nursing often have their roots in philosophy and religion. For a long time, the philosophy of nursing has been the basis for the profession. This is especially true of the principles of selfless service and promoting the flourishing of others.

Research requires the use of theories since they enable us to comprehend the significance of nursing. Research and practice are significantly influenced by nursing models and ideas.Theory influences research and practice by providing a framework for thinking about a phenomenon (Salifu et al., 2019)The nursing theory must be used or used by nurses and other healthcare professionals to investigate the various patient experiences of symptoms as assessed in a specific healthcare environment.

The presence of certain symptoms in patients is influenced by a variety of circumstances, including those related to their environments, their psychological states, and their physiological states (Christalle et al., 2019).Hence, “pain and culture” is one of my favorite topics to discuss since it has helped me learn and is used often in my field of nursing.Institutions dedicated to medical education have a responsibility to provide students with instruction on pain management and ethics as they learn to treat patients with long-term conditions (Carvalho et al., 2019).

However, managing pain effectively has emerged as a major challenge for the medical community. To give adequate pain treatment, providers must be truthful and compliant with the law.For this reason, researchers established the concept of self-efficacy to describe these occurrences. But assessing a person both internally and externally entails figuring out their degree of understanding based on both their internal performance and the impact of external influences (Klassen & Klassen, 2018).Medical decision-making in the long term would be guided by the evidence-based practice established via the study of scientific literature and the application of related principles. The nurse practitioner ultimately must integrate elements, practices, and queries in order to gain professional duty.

 These are only a few of the arguments I can use to support my conclusion that this class was an excellent experience for me, all the discussions, learning more about them, and learning how to apply them. It was a wonderful challenge for me to learn how to read and write professionally since it equipped me with the information, I need to do well in nursing school and in the real world.
