NR 501 Week 1 Discussion plus Reflection (Bundle)

NR 501 Week 1 Discussion: Importance of Theory in Nursing

For many students enrolled in NR501, this is an initial course for nursing theory. So, let’s have a debate. Is nursing theory important to the nursing profession? If you believe that it is important, explain why it is useful. If you do not believe that it is useful, explain why nursing theory is not necessary to the profession? Be sure to provide an example that demonstrates your opinion and a scholarly reference (not using the required textbook or lesson) which supports your opinion.


NR-501 Week 1 Reflection On Learning

Write 1-2 paragraphs reflecting on your experience as you continue your journey to achieve your MSN and become a nurse practitioner and post to this discussion board. Then save the reflection as a Word Document for submission later in the course. In week 8, you will submit all reflections as a single document.

This reflection is worth 5 points and the final reflection document in week 8 is worth 15 points.

What were the most important concepts you learned in week 1? Why are these concepts important? How will they prepare you for your future role as a nurse practitioner? In what ways do you feel prepared for your new role? In what ways do you feel unprepared?

The situation could be your first full code on a patient or visitor, a precipitous delivery, a patient dying, or many other situations in which you just did not feel like you had enough information or knowledge related to handling the situation. Afterward, you probably went over the scenario with others or in your mind with thoughts of what should I have done differently, what nuggets of wisdom can I add to my ever-growing knowledge and wisdom, etc. Please share one of these experiences with us and tell us what you learned from the situation as you self-reflect. How did this experience help you with other situations in your nursing career?
