The possession of knowledge, skills, and research that exceeds the traditional scope of nursing practice and particularly nursing practice in this specific field; and 3, advancement, which includes specialization and expansion in the field (Joel, 2009). The three conditions of advance practice nursing are interrelated and focus on the four primary conditions of nursing: health, environment, patient, and nursing all of which are stressed in the IOM report.
In short, the IOM report may well lead to nurses developing an innovative approach, focusing on continuous development of skills, acquitting synthesis of experience, knowledge, and skills, and working on maintaining a holistic, patient-centered focus.
Nurses will also become more multi-disciplinary in knowledge and practice since their research and critical thinking will impel them to understand and investigate a plethora of directly and indirectly related fields.
Since evidence-based nursing is already a huge component of nursing, I would not place more emphasis on that. Instead, I would place greater focus on teaching the rudiments of computer research, as well as teaching student nurses the basic skills of SPSS and how to read and interpret results. This is often an overlooked component and yet, if nurses are expected to become critical contributors of medical research, an important one.
The impact of the IOM report on the nurse's role as leader
By becoming more evidence-based, the nurse becomes a leader in her field in that, instead of nurses following authority opinion as was previously the case, the caregiver now bases his or her practice on scientific evidence, using research skills to collect and appraise her evidence.
Critical thinking and knowledge of current research is particularly important for the primary adult care nurse since increasingly complex decision-making situations call for more reflection on the caregiver's part (Salehi et al., 2007). In a more indirect manner, critical thinking also provides the nurse with greater skills and ability to work in social and multidisciplinary groups. Nurses are expected to effectively work with a multidisciplinary healthcare team in their provision of nursing care (NMC, 2009). Acquisition of critical thinking compels nurses to investigate and acquire the vocabulary, knowledge, and understanding of related fields other than their own, thus enabling them to better participate in communication with diverse doctors…[continue]
