Impacts of CPR on a Bedside Nurse Practitioner According to McGonigle and Mastrian , nursing practitioners have professional languages and terminologies that are only understandable to them in their discipline. In nursing care, it’s fundamental to use standardized nursing terminologies to separate the practice from other health practices. A standardized nursing terminology is a common language among clinical nurses that they readily understand and that are unique to and describes nursing care as a discipline (McGonigle and Mastrian 2015).
As a bedside nurse practitioner, I would welcome the use of Computerized Patient Record System (CPR) terminology according to North America Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA) in my practice. With a CPR, it is easy to identify with a plethora of data and informational records of different patients with similar conditions. In reference to (McGonigle and Mastrian 2015) such detailed data and information provide knowledge about specific patients’ conditions in detail since different patients respond differently to similar disease conditions (McGonigle and Mastrian 2015). As a result, it will provide me with a conscience and wise judgments about patient care at different situations.
For instance in the case with tonsillitis, if there is a CPR, it is easy to access data information about the disease for different patients. Upon careful study of the information, it would be easy to compare his conditions with other previous similar conditions of different patients. Subject the knowledge. I would be able to effectively communicate my patient’s condition to other nurses and other health care providers with the clear conscience of nursing possible interventions. In addition, I will gain improved patient care on tonsillitis conditions and appropriately comprehend nursing care outcomes with greater adherence to standards of nursing care. This will enhance my nursing competency as a nursing practitioner (McGonigle and Mastrian 2015).
