Examining the case of Alicia Lujan, provide two questions about one of Alicia’s
medications that you will ask your students doing their clinical experiences in Urgent
Care. Relate your questions to the 3Ps.
Would you prefer they use (1) medication cards or (2) concept maps or (3) another
method of your choice to demonstrate that they are ready to pass medications and
Excellent student post, your question style is applying strategies that involve doing
research and observations before administering medications. Nursing education is very
complex and in saturated with new knowledge and in meeting both lectures and didactic
a nursing curriculum that delivers nursing concepts and evidence base practice is
Encouraging students to further develop they knowledge and demonstrating that they
have the have the capacity to connect the pathophysiological changes that a devasting
disease process such as cancer exerts over the whole body and correlating that with
the pharmacokinetics of the medication involve would have demonstrated that at the
least students are knowledgeable enough to pass medications.
I would also, make sure that other safety strategies such as, The Quality and Safety
Education for Nurses (QSEN) are reviewed before going to the clinical arena. The
creativity in how you developed your questions is fun and makes the subject interesting.
Students will have to know their medications before administering it. Meaningful and
strategic are two descriptors of impactful your questions are. Not only are you making
sure that your students conduct research on the subject matter, but also, they will have
to apply the three p’s in order to be ready to administer patient’s medications. QSEN as
I earlier mentioned will integrate competencies such as centered care, safety and
evidence base practice as some of the six strategies that help prevent medical errors in
the healthcare industry (Lewis et at.,2016). This is an exciting and eye opening class to
the world of nursing education, creating questions that integrate the three P’s as we are
learning here is challenging and very fulfilling.
