WEEK ONE JOURNAL ENTRY Week One Journal The purpose of this paper is to choose one nursing theory and one counseling theory to help guide my personal practice. Each theory will be explained along with the reasons why they were chosen. Three different goals and objectives for each goal specifically relating to this course will be identified. A timeline of practicum activities will be created based on the requirements for this course.Nursing TheoryThe nursing theory that will be discussed is Ida Jean Orlando’s theory of the deliberate nursing process. This theory resembles the idea that patients’ perceptions of their personal experience is altered by nurses’ education and the information provided to the patient. This should be taken into consideration potentially to allow the patient to have their own perception and interpretation of situation. This also requires the nurse to have an open mind and listen to thepatient and their feelings and needs before making any assumptions about the type of care needed and the way it should be provided (Gonzalo, 2019). This theory was chosen because it will be important to keep this in mind personally during my practice as a PMHNP before assuming too much about what I may think the patient needs and can benefit from. That is why itis important to allow the patient to provide detailed information about themselves, their history, and their goals from therapy.
