Advanced practice registered nurses must incorporate the APRN consensus model in their response.

DQ2

Compare two different advanced registered nurse roles with regard to ethical guidelines. Are there any differences in the ethical guidelines that govern these roles? What situations might require one role to respond differently, depending on the ethical guidelines?

Topic: Diversity and Global Perspectives of Care

DQ1

Identify a population that you will likely serve as an advanced registered nurse that you think is particularly vulnerable to issues of health disparities/inequity.

How do issues of diversity and global perspectives of care contribute to your understanding of health equity as it relates to this population?

DQ2

What is your personal worldview? Connect your worldview to cultural and spiritual competence. How will your worldview and cultural and spiritual competence affect your future practice and role?

Select two different nursing theories and describe how they relate to patient care. How could you use them for inciting behavioral changes?

DQ1

During this program, you will complete an evidence-based practice project addressing a problem, issue, or concern in your specialty area of professional practice. Consider an area in your specialty that you believe needs improvement. Which nursing theories could you apply to this problem? Why is this the best theory?

DQ2

Select one theory discussed during Topics 4 and 5. Does application of this theory differ based on the population focus (individuals, families, communities, and special populations)? Why or why not? Use examples from your current practice to illustrate differences or similarities.

UNIT 6

Topic: Role of Research and Research Process for Advanced Registered Nurses

DQ1

Review the evidence-based practice project ideas you described in Topic 5 DQ 1. Based on your initial ideas, what types of scholarly nursing research (such as quantitative or qualitative research, peer-reviewed resources, etc.) would be required to further investigate the issue? Identify the criteria you would use to evaluate the appropriateness of the research. Why is it important to select research that meets these criteria?

DQ2

Imagine the following scenario: You are taking the evidence-based practice course and one of your classmates shares an EBP project draft with you. You notice that some of the research has not been cited correctly or even at all. When you approach your classmate, the response is that "no one will notice and it is not a big deal anyway." What are your next steps in speaking with your classmate? Consider how this could reflect on the credibility and integrity of the individuals involved, the University, and the profession.

Topic: Evidence-Based Practice Initiatives

DQ1

Describe the steps of the evidence-based research process and the importance of using them.
