The nurse practitioner must assess and implement an action plan for management. The nurse practitioner will discuss how to initiate a plan of action in resolving the clinical issue and present a PowerPoint presentation.
No more than 10 slides should be used with group participants of 5 to 6 students per group.
The nurse practtioner has been working in a medical surgical unit for years as a unit ADVANCE NURSE PRACTTIONER for 5 years. She is very smart and savvy when it comes to her job. She constantly gets feedback from the patients as being one of the kindest, most thorough NURSE PRACTIONERs. The physician involved on this case scenario unbelievably thorough and great with patients.
This Nurse Practitioner was approached by a physician wondering why the blood pressure medications of a certain patient were being held over the past few days and he was not notified. This Nurse practitioner, being very diplomatic, offered a response to the physician, “I’m not sure, I didn’t even know that happened, let me look into it for you and get back to you.”
Unrelenting, the physician pressed farther: “There’s no need for you to look into it further, I’ve been sitting her for 20 minutes looking at the blood pressures and medications given–and it makes no sense.” Getting louder with each word.
Knowing she could offer nothing useful in this conversation with it escalating, she simply walked away saying, “I don’t know, I’ve literally taken care of this patient today for the first time.”
