Who is the famous Nurse made this statement?

“I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past.”

NCLEX-RN plan® Integrated Processes

  • Nursing Process – a scientific, clinical reasoning approach to client care that includes assessment, analysis, planning, implementation and evaluation.

  • Caring – interaction of the nurse and client in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. In this collaborative environment, the nurse provides encouragement, hope, support and compassion to help achieve desired outcomes.

  • Communication and Documentation – verbal and nonverbal interactions between the nurse and the client, the client’s significant others and the other members of the health care team. Events and activities associated with client care are validated in written and/or electronic records that reflect standards of practice and accountability in the provision of care.

  • Teaching/Learning – facilitation of the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes promoting a change in behavior
