Date:02/24/2021 Student Name: Sarah Wilson Part One Art of Nursing: The Nurse-Patient Relationship The nurse-patient relationship is established for the benefit of the patient to meet their needs, support their goals, and encourage them in the healing process. Depending upon the circumstances, the relationship can become emotionally and spiritually intense for the nurse as well as the patient. For this reason, nurses must be aware of the phases and boundaries of the nurse-patient relationship to appropriately maintain this helping role. For this assignment, read and review the following references, answer each question, providing a substantive answer where appropriate. Word for word copying from the reference material is not acceptable. Read the material and then, using a combination of referenced material and your own words, write out your answer. Use your critical thinking skills in developing your answers. In-text citations are expected. Please note some of the reference materials refer to RN’s; however, the nurse-patient relationship applies to all nurses and healthcare workers. REFERENCES: Williams, P.

Honesty Respect. 2) List the five components to the nurse-client relationship as described by the National Association of New Brunswick (2015). Provide a brief explanation for each component. Power Trust Respect Intimacy fiduciary duty. Nurses have more power than the patient, but the power is to make the right decisions on behalf of patient. Misusing power can result in abuse. Trust is critical in a nurse-patient relationship and if broken it can be hard to rebuild. Respect is acknowledging a patient’s background, culture, religion, and views without being judgmental while providing care.
