NSG 4076 Bi_Weekly Practicum Journaling

From the past two weeks, my practicum experience has been majorly on the acquisition of skills and knowledge necessary to promote patient-centered care by advocating for the vulnerable population. Just like the Healthy People 2020 which aims at increasing public awareness and comprehensive understanding of the health determinants, diseases, and disabilities in addition to opportunities within the community, I was able to advocate for different clients with diverse health dynamics (Murillo-Llorente et al., 2021). For instance, one of my patients was a 24-year-old pregnant woman, who was unmarried and homeless. I was quite compassionate in taking care of both the patient’s health and social needs, by connecting her with appropriate community resources to help solve her problems. From this experience, I was able to appreciate the relevance of applying ethical consideration to promote critical thinking in decision-making concerning the provision of patient-centered care.

The conceptual framework pillars of the South University College of Nursing demonstrate the need to promote patient care, effective communication, critical thinking, exhibiting professionalism, and providing holistic care (Reljić et al., 2019). From my practicum experience, I was able to appreciate the need of observing all of the above-mentioned aspects of care to promote patient-centered care. This is even more crucial among the vulnerable population such as the minority group, older adults, and pregna
