MSN-prepared Nurse as an Educator
During the Week Three learning activities, the role of the MSN-prepared nurse as an educator is evident. Whether providing education to individuals, families, or groups, improving the knowledge surrounding health and illness is an integral component of advanced nursing practice, with health promotion often being the goal.
With learning from Week Three regarding the respiratory system in mind, as well as concepts surrounding health promotion from the previous weekly lesson, respond to the following:
1. Describe a scenario involving either a chronic or acute illness involving the respiratory system that is different from the Shadow Health patient scenario.
2. What health promotion model or concepts would you keep in mind as you initiate education, and why?
3. Share 2 questions an MSN-prepared nurse could ask which would aid in assessing the patient’s educational preparation and readiness to learn.
4. Provide feedback to your peers for considerations related to age appropriate and culturally inclusive questions which would demonstrate an open mind and respect for differences.
