Nursing Problem Paper #1: Identifying the Problem

Identification of the Nursing Problem — Unit 4 (75 pts)

Compose a paper that describes the nursing problem that you have identified in a clinical setting or have chosen from the simulated scenarios. The identified problem can relate to patient and/or family care, staff or student problems, or leadership and management problems, in inpatient or outpatient settings, or other healthcare environments.

The evidence-based nursing problem paper, Identifying the Problem, is where you will justify why this is an important problem; therefore, you need to supply data and information that shows this is an important problem. You do this by providing background information, statistical support, and specific information about the identified problem. The paper should not be purely anecdotal information from you or your sources. The paper should focus on the following three major content criteria (See grading rubric):

  1. Be sure to identify how specific theory and knowledge from each of the following areas contributed to your ability to identify or solve the nursing problem:
    1. Specific prior general education courses
    2. Specific prior nursing courses
    3. Your nursing background and experience
  2. Consider the following questions as you justify the existence of the identified problem at the setting:
    1. Why is this problem important to the site and to nursing?
    2. How does this problem affect the staff/patients/clients at the facility? (Or if in the past, how did this problem affect the staff/patients in the previous facility?)
    3. What is the current state of this problem in health care?
    4. Is it a problem in the country, globally, at other local organizations, or specifically in this facility?
  3. Make sure to discuss in detail your plan for searching for an evidence-based solution to the problem.
    1. Identify who you would need to contact or meet with to investigate the problem further.
    2. Discuss what your plans would be for interviewing or surveying the staff, other departments, or other disciplines if you were actually in charge of addressing this problem at a workplace/facility.
    3. How do you plan to search the current literature for actual research studies on the topic?
