The basis of my paper will be Modeling and Role-Modeling Theory.
MRM is a client centered nursing theory that encompasses the patients’ perception of the world at its center.
The MRM theory also serves as a paradigm for nursing. It is viewed as a grand theory that includes many of the mid-range theories. MRM incorporates concepts from various interdisciplinary theories, such as Erikson’s psychosocial, Piaget’s cognitive, and Maslow’s basic needs, Selye’s and Engels’s stress adaptation, and several energy based concepts.
MRM also serves as the basis of nursing education. It is also a wonderful way for nurses to teach their students by following their examples.
The articles I have chosen are: GERIATRICS IN SIMULATION: ROLE MODELING AND CLINICAL JUDGMENT EFFECT. By: JOHNSON, ELIZABETH A.; LASATER, KATHIE; HODSON-CARLTON, KAY; SIKTBERG, LINDA; SIDERAS, STEPHANIE; DILLARD, NANCY. And Role modeling excellence in clinical nursing practice By R.N. Beth Perry.
The first article is on a study to determine the effect of expert role modeling on nursing students’ clinical judgment in the care of a simulated geriatric patient who experienced surgical repair of a hip fracture. (Johnson, Lasater, Hodson-Carlton, Siktberg, Sideras, & Dillard 2012).
Learning from exemplary nurses is the key. It influences us to follow in their footsteps. A great nurse educator believes that more can always be done above and beyond the call of duty. As Tanner (2006) identified, there is a strong need for nurse educators to focus on clinical thinking in order to safely meet complex patient care situations in health care. This is consistent with observational learning and role modeling theory (Bandura, 1997), the opportunity for students to view an expert nurse role modeling care significantly improved aspects of clinical judgment (Johnson et. al 2012).
The second article focuses on how being mentored can have a profound effect on the basis of a new nurses experience. Since...
