Question description

Concept Usage in a Professional Practice Model


The purpose of this paper is for you to examine the philosophy of nursing and/or the professional practice model in your facility (if you are not working or the facility does not have one, then you may choose one from your readings).

Example: Your hospital’s framework is based on Jean Watson’s Caring model.


  1. Select a single word (concept) that is included or defined within your professional practice model or philosophy, as a characteristic of the model.
  2. For this paper, include a discussion of:
    • A concept from your organization’s nursing philosophy or professional practice model. Examples include: safety, patient satisfaction, quality, accessible healthcare, responsibility, and caring.
    • The organizational definition, if stated. Also list your organization’s mission and vision statements. If the organizational definition, mission, and/or vision are not stated, explain this in your paper.
    • Several definitions and uses of the concept (as in the Unit 3 Assignment) taken from the nursing literature.
    • Your own definition of the concept, as if you are preparing it to submit to your workplace as a needed refinement (why you have modified the definition). Develop this from your reading and the organization’s definition. In other words, modify it as you would like to see it developed into the framework and organizational structure of the facility by specifically identifying your redefinition and explaining why you feel the definition of the concept should be modified.
    • How this concept supports your professional practice model. Be sure to specifically identify by name your facility’s professional practice model or provide a framework that would represent the philosophy of nursing within your facility, such as Watson’s Caring model.

  3. Use 4–6 nursing scholarly sources to support your definitions.
  4. Use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) to cite in text and your reference list.
  5. Your Assignment must be 4–6 pages, and should include a title page and reference page (in addition to the 4–6 pages for the Assignment).
