Work In The Nursing Profession

1a Explain the differences between modern day nursing education and the old hospital based training model Modern day nursing is quite a different experience and process when compared to the old hospital based training system. Today’s nursing is theory based. Nurses learn the theory behind actions, procedures and decisions, before gaining the experience of performing the action or duty within the profession. In stark contrast the hospital based system is on the job, training where the nurses learn various processes as they present themselves and the theory is explained after the process has been demonstrated or when the applicable lesson comes to pass. The training was often governed by the skills required on the ward on that particular day, rather than the broad range of skills and knowledge that is achieved with the modern evidence based training model (Koutoukidis, Stainton & Hughson 2013 pp. 4 – 19).

1b When did the Diploma of Nursing become the nationally recognised entry level qualification for Enrolled Nurses in Australia? Why did this occur? The diploma of nursing was nationally recognised in 2010, it coincided with the establishment of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority (AHPRA). This was essential as previously each state had a different system and standards and this was not practical for national management .This was evident when nurses would transfer jobs between states and find that the skill sets were not equal (Koutoukidis, Stainton & Hughson 2013, pp 10)(Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Agency 2012).

It is interesting to note that the ANA (American Nursing Association) Standards have set forth the framework necessary for critical thinking in the application of the “nursing process." Unfortunately this framework can be executed superficially or substantively, as can any such framework. We believe that skilled nursing depends upon a well-reasoned philosophy of nursing rooted in a deep and rich conception of critical thinking. Intuitive nursing practice (which is s
