DQ 2: Select one theory discussed during Topics 4 and 5. Describe how this theory applies to your future role in advanced nursing practice (individuals, families, communities, and special populations)?
Select one theory discussed during Topics 4 and 5. Describe how this theory applies to your future
role in advanced nursing practice (individuals, families, communities, and special populations)?
Why or why not? Use examples from your current practice to illustrate differences or similarities.
Wiendenbach’s Four Elements of Nursing, Peplau’s theory of Interpersonal Relations, Watson’s
Philosophy and Science of Nursing and Neuman’s System Model all contain elements that I hope
to incorporate into my advanced nursing practice. Of these four theories, Neuman’s System Model
is the theory that I feel with be most useful in my public health advanced nursing practice. Betty
Neuman’s Systems Model has a wholistic focus that covers a wide range of issues and prioritizes
unity (Gonzalo, 2021). Neuman’s system approach can be applied to a single person, a group or
society. I feel that Neuman’s assumptions are flexible yet structured enough to adjust to all the
variables that exist within the public and the health issues that develop there. It acknowledges that
while each system is unique, the three preventative stages of primary, secondary, and tertiary are
relevant to each unique situation. The three prevention methods work to prevent, reduce, or
eliminate stressors that are either external, internal, manufactured, or natural so that the system’s
defense lines can be restored, and stability can be re-established. (Gonzalo, 2021)
Neuman’s model use in my future practice in public health and my current practice as
chemotherapy infusion nurse are similar. In oncology the known stressor is cancer, and the goal of
chemotherapy is to reduce and or eliminate that stressor to re-establish the patient’s physical
stability. During the journey of diagnosis and treatment, the patient also has physiological,
psychological, spiritual, and sociocultural defense lines that have been disrupted. As a
chemotherapy nurse I use Neuman’s open system of communication and constant feedback to
wholistically help the patient adjust and mitigate these disruptions. One example is the
management of nausea during treatment. I have noticed during my many years of treating patients
that if we are able to keep an open line of communication about their nausea, such as when it
occurs, what medications or interventions work and do not work, we can successfully manage their
nausea throughout their prescribed treatment cycles.References:

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
