Must use the sample template for your soap note. 

Follow the MRU Soap Note Rubric as a guide

Use APA format and must include minimum of 2 Scholarly Citations.

TURN-It-In (anti-Plagiarism program) will be used.

The use of tempates is ok with regards of Turn it in, but the Patient History, CC, HPI, The Assessment and Plan should be of your own work and individualized to your made up patient. 

You must use template for Soap note 1. Use the information provided in the PDF as an “EXAMPLE”. You must use the word temple file and tailor it to your patient and their diagnosis. Using this template will make it very easy to learn the things needed in the note and help you not forget to put something or lose points due to incorrect format or missing information. 

The Chief Complaint, Patient info, HPI, Plan section, and references must all be of your own work and no copy-paste.

The Main Areas of Focus that will be checked for plagiarism is Chief Complain, History of Present Illness (HPI), Assessment with Rationale and Explanation, and the Plan. All of this should be in your own words and not copy-pasted from a past note or website or book. There should be minimum likeness noted by turn it in software in these areas. 

The Objective and Subjective information can be from a template (Standard Documentation) and will only be looked at for content and not for plagiarism. So if you are past 50% and the above main areas of focus sections are clear and minimum then you are ok. You can resubmit as many times but after 3 it takes up to 24 hours to get turn it in a score.

Cultural Health Promotion Project

Instructions from my professor:

Cultural Health Promotion Project

Cultural diversity refers to the differences among people based upon shared ideology and shared valued sets of beliefs, norms, customs, and meanings evidenced in a way of life. This diversity is expressed in many ways. Diversity in history, beliefs, practices, and opportunities not only exist among the many cultural groups, they typically exist across a wide continuum within the group. Health behaviors are influenced by culture and cultural values as well as socioeconomic status. 

In this assignment, students will develop a health promotion project for a cultural group living anywhere in the United States. You are to learn as much as you can about the culture norms and patterns and how these norms and patterns influence health practices. The purpose of this assignment is to develop a deeper understanding and sensitivity regarding the role of culture in patients’ lives and in nursing through the examination of a cultural/ethnic group while addressing health promotion strategies and disease prevention.

PROJECT COMPONENTS

The project should address the following Aspects of Cultural Assessment: 

1.  Ethnic/racial identity: How does the group identify itself in terms ethnicity and racial background? What is the range of interaction outside of the cultural group? Are recreational, educational, and other social activities within the ethnic reference group, the wider community, or both? 

2.  History and Value Orientation: How are values derived? What is the historical experience of the group that may have impacted values?

3.  Language-communication process: What is the primary spoken language? What languages are spoken in the home? And by whom? What language is preferred when speaking to outsiders? Do second and third generations in the speak the language of their grandparents? 

4.  Health Beliefs and Practices: What are the traditional health beliefs? How common are these beliefs and practices within this group? To what extent are folk healing practices and practitioners used? 

5.  Religious Belief and Spirituality: Discuss religious articles & practices. How is spirituality is defined in the culture? Remember that Religious Beliefs and Spirituality are different concepts. 

6.  Life cycle events: Which life cycle events are important to the culture? What are the customs associated with births, coming of age, marriage, and death? 

7.  Nutritional Behavior/Diet: Are there restrictions? Are there common practices? 

8.  Medical health care access and experience: Is access to care and equality of care an issue for this group? For example, are group members less likely to receive needed care due to system issues such as financial access or provider biases than another group? 

Based on the Cultural Assessment Data, the student will design a Cultural Health Promotion Plan: 

9.  Cultural Health Promotion Plan: Identify a health risk or health problem the project will address. Describe why this is an issue for your chosen target group and how cultural plays a role in the health risk or problem. 

10.  Health Promotion Strategies/Methods: Based on the health risk/problem identified, describe the strategies/methods that you will implement. Focus on primary and secondary prevention strategies. Refer to Healthy People 2020 Topics and Objectives. You may access the website at: https://www.healthypeople.gov.

 Nurses play a crucial and essential role in delivering patient’s quality of care, being the most direct caregivers for many of them. Nurses like Florence Nightingale, Isabel Hampton, and Lilian Wald were heroes who provided a tremendous knowledge that nowadays we are still using, and made a profound difference in the quality of care of patients, being their legacies followed today (Black, 2017, p. 324). Nursing has evolved in various aspects meaning that many changes have occurred in ways that are responsive to changes in the environment we are surrounded for. One of the changes we can observe in which this nursing field has evolved is gender equality knowing that in previous decades, and when Florence Nightingale started her nursing profession was a female dominated career where only women were the ones who provided care for patient, but today many males’ candidates are practicing the profession and are involved in patient’s care.

  The way they used to dress was totally different and not the same we use to wear today, they worn long white dresses, white hats, and white stockings, and nowadays nurses wear comfortable and beautiful scrubs, no hats, no dresses, and appropriate shoes and socks as well. As time has passed nurses have grown into highly specialized, and respected members of health care teams being a key element of the healthcare industry. Nursing education 100 years ago was a more direct training on how to address doctors, while nursing education today is more complex, formal, and comprehensive than it was before. Actually, today we as nurses need to take a complex and national exam as a requirement for becoming a licensed RN. While we get more knowledge and foundation of a stronger education we take into consideration the patient’s responsibility in our shoulders, and especially when we become advanced practice nurses.

  The impact of technology has allowed nurses become more precise, and efficient, alleviating some of the physical demands. The way nurses do their job today is easier than before keeping in mind that patient’s records are digital helping us with less paperwork, and preventing human mistakes on charts, that way is easier for us while doing an assessment on a patient. Another advantage we have with technology use is using the mobile apps to look up any medical information, as well as the special beds and chairs providing us a more comfortable environment as we don’t have to do so much heavy lifting (Dawn, 2016).

 Today, Nursing is what I expected when I entered this education. Although I never imagined being a nurse, I’m more than happy and proud of myself for having chosen this beautiful career. This teaches me every day to be a better person and value the love and care I provide to people who really need my help. I always thought about the tremendous responsibility I would have while dealing with real people who are really sick, but I’m always eager to learn new things and expand my knowledge to be more successful in my life and be the great nurse I always dreamt of when I decided to get into this field.

Nursing is one of the fields that require much attention, dedication, and passion concerning how nurses treat patients under their care. Nursing program entails taking care of patients, this involves giving them guidelines on various issues such as medication, feeding and dietary habits as well as offering assistance to patients with various medical challenges to ensure their good stay while at the health care facility. Nurses plays a pivotal role of assisting doctors identify the best care plan for patients. They are also involved in executing the care plan offered by doctors and can sometimes advice doctors more about the health condition of patients since they spent most of the time with the patients (Ronquillo, Currie & Rodney, 2016). While most people enter the nursing profession with the wrong mental perspective that nursing is a simple duty, some of them drop out during the training program as the task requires much dedication and perseverance as one interacts with diverse people with different health complications. While the different people may have various personalities, the nurse is expected to display high level of professionalism and care to patients, which calls for ethical values as a nurse (Clavijo, de Julián Romero & Paniagua, 2016). Although I expected nursing to be quite challenging while I was taking my nursing program, I never thought it would be that hard. The modern evolution trends have drastically changed the nursing roles unlike in the past.
During my studies as a nurse, I thought the nursing profession would be hard since I could see various nurses doing their duties with ease. When I visited the some of the healthcare facilities within my locality, I would see nurses doing their work perfectly and enjoying interacting with different patients and examining their medical conditions. For me, I was passionate about the profession since I like assisting people who are suffering from various conditions. Therefore, nursing was a good choice for me since I was able to identify the various people with different medical conditions and assist them to recover. However, I never thought that the task would be that difficult. I thought the task was easy while I was taking the nursing program in college until I entered the actual profession. I realized that the task was not as easy as I thought since most of the times, I found myself interacting with different patients with various medical conditions and who have different medical illnesses.
Working at the ICU was challenging for me since I found myself working with patients who were facing different critical issues. When I entered the nursing profession, I thought that nursing involved taking care of patients and giving them directions on how they would take their drugs as well as assisting doctors in treatment of patients. I never imagined that nurses play a more involving and critical role than the doctors assigned to treat the patients. I found myself working for more hours in a day than I expected. At times, I would work both day and night taking care of different patients since the nurses in my healthcare facility was limited. I realized that nursing has greatly changed and the profession has become more involving since nurses perform some of the task that doctors do not do.
Arguably, the nursing role has changed drastically since I have been using most of my time in the hospital taking care of patients, giving them directions on dietary habits and offering emotional support to different patients. This is one of the aspects that have drastically changed since I left my nursing program from college.
