In regard to Chamberlain’s MSN/FNP program outcomes, this course is an integral component in order to achieve success upon graduating. MSN essential Vlll entails recognition that the master’s-prepared nurse applies and integrates broad, organizational, client-centered, and culturally appropriate concepts in the planning, delivery, management, and evaluation of evidence-based clinical prevention and population care and services to individuals, families, and aggregates/identified populations. Being a family nurse practitioner, I must understand disease processes from birth to adult. This class brought to my attention problems that can occur in infancy to geriatrics.
The nurse practitioner core competency, scientific foundation, was achieved in a multitude of ways. Having a broad knowledge base of many diseases, understanding why and how they occur, their clinical manifestations, laboratory, or clinical diagnostic tests and individualized patient-centered treatment and care is very important when it comes to achieving this outcome and this course has prepared me in these aspects as follows: 1. Critically analyzes data and evidence for improving advanced nursing practice: I gained knowledge and utilizes it to analyzed different pertinent positive findings and pertinent negative findings in different scenarios, and develop appropriate differential diagnosis while exploring the most current evidence that will assist in improving the care and treatment for specific patients. 2. Integrates knowledge from the humanities and sciences within the context of nursing science: The understanding of human body and relating it to disease state as well as the concept of etiology and epidemiology (incorporating statistics and its related sciences), have provided adequate knowledge needed for quality care of patients. The use of diagnostic test to identify and confirm certain diseases has opened way for more advanced safe patient care. 3. Translates research and other forms of knowledge to improve practice processes and outcomes: The research for information during this course has given me broad knowledge on many disease conditions and their treatment. Translating those researched information into knowledge and applying them to different scenarios in our case studies have prepared me well to be able to render adequate care in real life situations. 4. Develops new practice approaches based on the integration of research, theory, and practice knowledge: This course allowed me to incorporate evidence based research and theory into practice to render quality care to the patients (National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties, 2011).
