1. Choose an article from a professional nursing journal that reflects or involves the nursing process in some way. Summarize and discuss this article and relate the nursing process to this article. The article may not spell out the nursing process per say, rather the nursing process may be embedded within the article. For example, an article may be about post-operative care of the total knee patient: assessment would involve what specific assessments would be required for this patient, a plan that might involve hydration and mobility, then interventions which would be very specific and lastly of course, how to evaluate how effective your nursing plan was. This part should be 2 pages long.
2. The final part will be your analysis of this plan and a reflection on any personal experience you may have had that you could possibly relate to this article summary. This experience could be from a work experience, or maybe a personal experience involving say a family member who had surgery. This part should be 1 page long.
3. APA format is required.
Journals chosen should be within five years of publication. They should be from an acknowledged organization with a history of medical publication (e.g. not Reader’s Digest, TIME or Boy’s Life, etc.) Articles should be at least 2 pages long.
