The topic this week asks you to apply what you have learned to the following case study.

As the school nurse working in a college health clinic, you see many opportunities to promote health. Maria is a 40-year-old Hispanic who is in her second year of nursing school. She complains of a 14-pound weight gain since starting school and is afraid of what this will do to both her appearance and health if the trend continues. After conducting her history, you learn that she is an excellent cook and she and her family love to eat foods that reflect their Hispanic heritage. She is married with two school-age children. She attends class a total of 15 hours per week, plus she must be present for 12 hours of labs and clinical. She maintains the household essentially by herself and does all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, and chauffeuring of the children. She states that she is lucky to get 6 hours of sleep per night, but that is okay with her. She lives 1 hour from campus and commutes each day. Using Healthy People 2020 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and your text as a guide, answer the following questions.

  1. 1.What additional information would you like to gather from Maria?
  2. 2.What are Maria’s real and potential health risks?
  3. 3.Why is Maria’s culture important when obtaining the health assessment?
  4. 4.Pick one of Maria’s health risks.What would be one reasonable short-term goal for this risk?
  5. 5.What nursing interventions would you incorporate into Maria’s plan of care to assist her with meeting your chosen goal? Please provide rationale for your selections.

Week 3: Assessment of the Neurological System

9696 unread replies.120120 replies.

Randy Adams is a 38-year-old male patient of Dr. Joseph Reynolds who was admitted yesterday morning for 24-hour observation for mild concussion following a motor vehicle accident. Randy lost consciousness during the accident and was very confused when he arrived in the ER after EMS transport. He is an Iraq war veteran and he seemed to think after the accident that this all happened in Iraq. Dr. Reynolds is concerned that Randy has some residual problems from a couple of explosive incidents that occurred while he was in Iraq. The physician is unsure whether Randy’s current symptoms are from the car accident or from prior injuries so he has referred him for consultations to both a neurologist and to a behavioral health specialist.

Based on the above please discuss the following.

  1. Pathophysiology of concussive injuries and treatment
  2. Neurological assessment tools used in your current practice setting (if not presently working, please describe one used during prior employment or schooling)
  3. Current best practices associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  4. Nursing interventions you would include in this patient’s plan of care

Week 4: Assessment of Cardiac Status

9090 unread replies.117117 replies.

Esther Jackson is a 56-year-old black female who is 1-day post-op following a left radical mastectomy. During morning rounds, the off-going nurse shares with you during bedside report that the patient has been experiencing increased discomfort in her back throughout the night and has required frequent help with repositioning. She states that the patient was medicated for pain approximately 2 hours ago but is voicing little relief and states that you might want to mention that to the doctor when he rounds later this morning. With the patient appearing to be in no visible distress, you proceed on to the next patient’s room for report.

Approximately 1 hour later, you return to Ms. Jackson’s room with her morning pills and find her slumped over the bedside stand in tears. The patient states, “I don’t know what is wrong, I don’t feel right. My back hurts and I’m just so tired. What is wrong with me?” The patient refuses to take her medications at this time stating that she is starting to feel sick to her stomach.

Just then the nursing assistant comes into the patient’s room to record Ms. Jackson’s vital signs, you take this opportunity to quickly research the patient’s medication record to determine if she has a medication ordered for nausea. Upon return, the nursing assistant hands you the following vital signs: T 37, R 18, and BP 132/54, but states she couldn’t get the patient’s pulse because “it is all over the place.”

Please address the following questions related to the scenario.

  1. What do you suspect is the cause of the patient’s symptoms?
  2. Describe the course of action that you will take to confirm this suspicion and prevent further decline.
  3. What further assessments, lab values, and tests will likely be ordered for this patient and how often? If testing is to be completed more than once, please explain the rationale for doing so.
  4. While you are caring for this patient, how will you ensure that the needs of your other patients are being met?

Please review the video above as it will provide you with an opportunity to immerse yourself in the role of a nurse addressing tobacco use during routine patient care. Click to review a transcript (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. of this recording.

While viewing, reflect on what you have learned about tobacco use and the role that nurses and other interdisciplinary team members play in helping to assist tobacco users with quitting. While viewing, it is also important to keep in mind that tobacco users move through stages of change in the process of quitting. They move from pre-contemplation to contemplation, contemplation to preparation; preparation to abstinence; abstinence to maintenance. Every stage requires a different strategy by a nurse.

After watching the video, and reflecting on the information presented, address each of the following questions.

  1. What are the common symptoms associated with an exacerbation of COPD?
  2. What assessment techniques will you use to assess Mary?
  3. Identify smoking strategies that would be appropriate for each of the encounters that Mary had with the nurse throughout the video that could have been used to assist Mary in quitting smoking.
  4. Find a resource in your community that could assist Mary. Start by searching the Internet for your local health department’s website. What services are available to Mary? Briefly describe the services that the state quit line provides. Does it meet the 4 As? Is it accessible, acceptable, affordable, or available for Mary?
  5. What will you do to follow-up on Mary’s smoking cessation process?

Refer to your textbook or the Internet to learn what impact the family’s health history may have on the adult participant’s personal state of wellness both now and in the future. This paper does not require APA formatting, but you are expected to write clearly and use proper grammar and spelling.

    • Identify at least one important finding you discovered in Milestone 1 that is associated with this risk factor.
    • Explain how this places your adult participant at increased risk for developing a preventable disease (obesity, Type II Diabetes, etc.), which is described.
    • List short and long-term goals.
  • Intervention (four to five slides):Choose one evidence-based intervention related to the modifiable risk factor chosen that has been shown to be effective at reducing an individual’s risk for developing the preventable disease.
    • Describe the intervention in detail.

o Provide rationale to support the use of this intervention. Support your rationale with information obtained from one scholarly source as well as Healthy People 2020 ( http://healthypeople.gov (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.).

  • Evaluation (three to four slides): Describe at least one evaluation method that you would use to determine whether your intervention is effective. Outcome measurement is a crucial piece when implementing interventions.
    • Describe at least one method (weight, lab values, activity logs, etc.) you would use to evaluate whether your intervention was effective.
    • Describe the desired outcomes you would track that would show whether your intervention is working.
    • Include additional steps to be considered if your plan proved to be unsuccessful.

  • References (last slide): List the references for sources that were cited in the presentation.
  • Speaker notes: Share in detail how you would verbalize the content on each of the slides to the patient.

Remember, you are creating a patient teaching plan so be sure to include terms easily understood by the general population and limit your use of medical jargon.
