  • Provide a brief overview of the article

nursing theory and one non-nursing theory

Locate one nursing theory and one non-nursing theory. Describe how two practitioners can bring these separate theories together to provide meaningful patient care. Be very specific when you demonstrate how the two practitioners looking at a patient from differing theories bring meaningful care to a patient

As you might recall from Week 5, there are significant differences in the applications of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for families and individuals. The same is true for CBT in group settings and CBT in family settings. In your role, it is essential to understand these differences to appropriately apply this therapeutic approach across multiple settings. For this Discussion, as you compare the use of CBT in group settings and family settings, consider challenges of using this approach with your own groups.

Learning Objectives

Students will:
  • Compare the use of cognitive behavioral therapy for groups to cognitive behavioral therapy for families
  • Analyze challenges of using cognitive behavioral therapy for groups
  • Recommend effective strategies in cognitive behavioral therapy for groups

To prepare:

  • Reflect on your practicum experiences with CBT in group and family settings.

Post an explanation of how the use of CBT in groups compares to its use in family settings. Provide specific examples from your own practicum experiences. Then, explain at least two challenges counselors might encounter when using CBT in the group setting. Support your response with specific examples from this week’s media.

Within the Discussion Board area, write 300 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your

classmates. You are required to use 1 scholarly resource, in addition to your textbook. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.In your new job as a leader in a nursing department, you want to prepare yourself for any situation that may occur. You take time to review your relevant experiences and some of the lawsthat will affect your actions.Staffing levels vary from work environment to work environment and depend on the type of nursing, from intensive care to long-term care.

  • Describe a situation when you were short-staffed.
  • How did you handle the situation?
  • What was the outcome?
  • Reflecting on the outcome, how would you have handled this situation differently?

Some states mandate staffing levels; others do not. 

  • What type of legislation exists in your state regarding nurse-to-patient staffing ratios?
  • How does the legislation, or lack thereof, affect patient care?

Review the following resource: United States Department of Health and Human Services (2017). 2020 Topics and objectives: Nutrition and weight status. Retrieved from: https://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/topics-objectives/topic/nutrition-and-weight-status

The prevalence of obesity remains high and affects Americans of all ages.

Initial Discussion Post:

  • Identify two (2) contributing factors to childhood obesity. .
  • List three (3) ways the nurse could intervene to promote the nutrition and weight status objectives for Healthy People 2020.
  • Discuss why these objectives are important for individuals or communities.

Base your initial post on your readings and research of this topic. Your initial post must contain a minimum of 250 words. References, citations, and repeating the question do not count towards the 250 word minimum.

Information systems support and facilitate the functioning of people to enhance and evolve nursing practice by generating knowledge. This knowledge represents five rights: the right information, accessible by the right people in the right settings, applied the right way at the right time. It is also the struggle to integrate new knowledge and old knowledge to enhance wisdom. If clinicians are inundated with data without the ability to process it, this yields too little wisdom. That is why it is crucial that clinicians have viable information systems at their fingertips to facilitate acquisition, sharing, and utilization of knowledge while maturing wisdom; it is a process of empowerment.

  • If you could meet only four of the five rights, which one would you omit and why?
  • Provide a rationale for each right you chose to meet: 
    • Right Information
    • Accessible by the Right People
    • Right Settings
    • Applied the Right Way
    • At the Right Time

Assignment: Health Promotion Proposal Paper


The purpose of this assignment is to provide the learner an opportunity to design a health promotion proposal specific to your role specialization.
Each student will write a scholarly paper that demonstrates graduate school level writing and critical analysis of existing nursing knowledge. The paper will be a minimum of 12 pages and maximum of 15 pages (Excluding Title/Reference Pages) and conform to APA writing style.

Choosing Your Topic:

Review the list of priority areas for health promotion and disease prevention in Healthy People 2020 (www.healthypeople.gov). Next click on the “Topics & Objectives” tab and select a topic for your health promotion proposal. Consider a topic area with a focus that you believe is critical to your future role as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. Consult with your faculty member and seek approval prior to starting your paper.
Following approval of your selected topic, you will select a Specific Objective from Healthy People 2020. For instance, if your topic area was “Older Adults” you may choose the following objective in the “Older Adults” section and then choose a specific objective (click on the objectives tab):

• OA–6: Increase the proportion of older adults with reduced physical or cognitive function who engage in light, moderate, or vigorous leisure-time physical activities.

Based on this objective you would develop a more specific evidence based intervention such as providing a workshop on exercise for your target population. Or if your topic area was “Adolescent Health”, you may want to focus and develop and intervention on the following objective in the “Adolescent Health” section”

• AH–1 Increase the proportion of adolescents who have had a wellness checkup in the past 12 months.

Gathering the Evidence:

Besides the resources available in the topic areas of Healthy People 2020, visit South’s Online Library and conduct a review of literature looking for nursing research related to health promotion and disease prevention in your selected topic area. Also visit reputable internet sources such as the CDC, NIH, AHRQ.

Paper Criteria:

Clearly describes the health promotion/disease prevention problem specific to the target population.

Explains how the selected problem applies to advanced practice nursing.

Critically analyzes the current literature related to interventions that addresses the problem related to communities from nursing, the sciences, and humanities.
