  2. Key Constructs to Professional Nursing continued • Aiken Study (1994) > + P. N. • Facilitate professional autonomy • Nursing control over their practice • Positive nurse-physician relations • P.N. numbers/mix impact + patient outcomes by 3-12% (Needleman, 2001) • Provides compassionate care to clients • OJT does not normally meet the requirements of a professional occupation.

  3. What is a Profession? • Abraham Flexner (1910) • Intellectual vs physical (care plan vs IV) • Based on an assessable body of knowledge • Is practical rather than theoretical • Can be taught through professional Ed • Has a strong internal organization of members • Has practitioners motivated by altruism

  4. Explore the Meaning of a Professional vs. Technical Practice • Describe the similarities or differences between the chef at the Brown Palace & the cook at the Village Inn? Cook Chef

  5. Professional Practices Have a culture that supports professional activities: frameworks, CE, research Has a defined body of knowledge gained by formal education Is a discipline with peer review and a code of ethics Autonomy in practice with legislative and legal sanctions Is an organized system of practice-society recognized Technical Practices Are more likely to have more OJT than formal education. Are skill focused Have trade journals or technique trainings Do not focus on what advances the practice Develop through certifications Want less accountability Professional vs. Technicalfor all practice areas

  6. Professional thinking More is best Specialization in depth and breadth Evidence-based education Invests energy beyond the work-associations, research, reading Expects self accountability Resilient with change and believes change is valuable Technical Thinking Least is best Specialization in depth Experience is the primary educator Conserves energy beyond the workday Prefers others be accountable Enjoys consistency and believes change is disruptive Professional vs. TechnicalThinking and Valuing

  8. Imagine Nursing as Never Changing-Flat Line • Completely controlled • Impact on patient outcomes • Impact on new nurses • Impact on physicians • Impact on quality • Impact on staff

  9. What Would it Look Like with Fluctuation and Change? • How is Fluctuation & Change different from Random Chaos? • What are the Benefits of Fluctuation and Change? • Called Cybernetics II (as system in constant change—shaping toward improvements)

  10. Imagine Minimal Change

  11. Limited knowledge Information processing barriers Environmental barriers Motivational (internal) barriers Emotional barriers Perceptual barriers Intellectual barriers Cultural barriers (bias) KEY RESPONSES ARE: More people need to be stepping up to critical decisions with Shared Governance We need practice theories to keep us on track and tell us when we are lost We need to practice in an evidence-based care environment Professionals believe there are: Mind and Body Failures

  12. Conceptual Frameworks-Theory Allow You To Organize Your Thinking and Connect it to Principles • It helps to know what we believe and why • These are the the building blocks of our knowledge and beliefs • This allows us to move into new territory as if we have a map for the unknown • We have less surprises, and then react less stressed • It is an external support for our faulty thinking

  13. Imagine Nursing as Random Practice—Not a Discipline • Inconsistent care • Patient confusion • Evidence based practices are not encouraged • There is confusion and constant conflict • No accountability

  14.
