counseling ( Tronto, 2012). Conversely, Dix contributions to nursing entailed advocating for persons with mentally issues or confined to institutions. Her concern was on the wellbeing of individuals who were incapable of fending for themselves and needed a third party to advocate for their better treatment. Her avocations comprised campaigns for safe living conditions, protection against violence, and adequate health care. Barton is both an inspiration and influence on my nursing practice since I reside in a state that is classified as a high-risk disaster zone. I regularly volunteer at the local Red Cross chapter and during a hurricane incident, I was at the forefront in helping the affected community by providing food and working with other nurses to care for the injured. Dix also influences my nursing work with the foundations she has for the protection of persons incapable of protecting themselves by advocating for better legislation to minimize the maltreatment of these patients

NURSING PRACTICE 4 ( Lachman, 2012). It is humane in my view to care for others and fight for them when they are unable to do so themselves. Thanks to Dix’s efforts, nurses are better equipped to assist vulnerable patients by adopting healthcare proxies when need arises. State Board of Nursing Verses ANA By definition, the state board of nursing is a regional agency established in a particular area and tasked with the duty of overseeing nursing practice in that area. On the other hand, the ANA is a certified body that represents every registered nurse in the United States. The main functional difference between the institutions is that the state board only regulates in in its defined borders whereas ANA is a representation of all registered nurses in America. These agencies play crucial roles in the nursing field. According to Florida’s board of nursing, the institute is responsible for licensing, disciplining, educating, and rehabilitating licenses to guarantee competency in the provision of health services in the state (American Nurses Association, 2015). The ANA’s role on the other hand, is to advance the nursing profession to improve health for all. The body attains its roles by promoting ethical and safe workplaces, encouraging nurses to be at optimum wellness and health, fostering high nursing standards, and advocating for improvements in health care. The ANA and state board are essential to a nursing career since they promote regulations required for safe and quality practices in health care settings. For instance, the agencies demand that my education and license are up to date, which are critical in the dispensation of safe and positive care by being professionally competent. The ANA advocates for safe workplaces, which not only benefits the patient but also health practitioners. The nursing board shapes my practice by establishing standards that I must comply with to practice within the state ( Lachman, 2012).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
