PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY2A). A nursing theory is an accredited set of rules and modes of conduct that guide a nurse.Since it is my profession, some arguments seem to be more into me than others (Puente, 2017).The theory makes me feel that my code of conduct and values are well measured is the Trans-cultural nursing theory. Nurses use this theory by believing that there is no way, there can be acure if there is no care (Puente, 2017). The approach, therefore, guides the nurses to be morecaring to their patients at the workplace and understand that a health care specialist should workhard towards having well-comprehended health beliefs and life forms of a different culture in thesociety. The theory fits my practice in that I am a trained nurse, and I believe in the fact thatpatients need mental, physical, and regular health care and concern that they receive in hospitals.I think that besides medical treatment, care can cure too (Puente, 2017).B). Florence Nightingale and Virginia Avenel Henderson. Florence Nightingale is one ofthe iconic figures in the history of the nursing profession, stretching from 1820 to 1920. She isthe pioneer of modern nursing and Served voluntarily as a nurse at St. Vincent (Puente, 2017).She served to treat the wounded British soldiers willingly who had received inadequate medicalcare and started suffering from other diseases such as cholera (Puente, 2017). Her willingness toserve without pay makes people remember her.The second key figure in the nursing profession is Virginia Avenel Henderson andcommonly identified as the first lady of nursing. She has made a significant contribution inhistory to the strength of the American as well as international nursing education. She has ahistorical record contribution to the development of the nursing theory that all nurses should helpall people, whether sick or well. She advocated for better medical health care and peaceful death(Silva et al. 2018).
PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY3The two iconic figures have made me realize that there is no need to focus too much onsalary and income (Puente, 2017). From the two, I learned to need to ensure that I over the bestquality of care and treatment services to my patients as a nurse before thinking of salary. In thatway, I have learned this is a passion, not just an income generation job. Comparing the Two The two figures have taken much of their life doing voluntary work and developing a favorablenursing code of conduct and values (Puente, 2017). Both, seen to have one heart of serving thecommunity to their level best, without any pay. C). American Nurses Association is an organization that represents registered nurses inNew York State.
