Results for Orems assignment

  1. Yeah!!

    Sat here doing a happy dance!!, I just got the email confirmation of my results for writing a care plan using Orem's. I know it doesn't sound very hard, but it was a 'here are four blank pieces of paper' job.

    And I have never used Orem's model before, and the scenario was a cardiac pt, and we haven't learn the pathopysiology yet, and I have never been on a cardiac ward.

    So I am really happy

    and the best part is that the next scenario is a Stroke pt using RLT:roll and I am on a stroke rehab ward using RLT!!!


    I mean to put this in the students forum, and i can not delete it, sorry, I need to brush up on my allnurses knowledge.

    hey well done whisper (I wont show my ignorance by admitting I cant remember any models of nursing!!!)

    The only model I can kind of use without a mountain of books is RLT, and that is only because most of the wards I have been on use it, rather than Orem's, (I only need one book)

    My assignment for this module though is to critique an assessment and care plan written by my mentor, can you imagine... would it be wrong to try and wait till my CAP document is signed off before critiquing thier work??

    whats a CAP document? I always do the evaluation of a course after I have my results............especially my clinical practice teacher course 'cos I slated the tutor and course!

    My CAP document, is my Continuos Assessment of Practice document, and has all the learning outcome I have to achieve per placement in it as well as any clincial skills, so that my mentor can rate me, onhow well I am doing.

    Basicaly it is a big folder I have to lug to placement and pester my mentor into looking at, and take hours for my to fill in as each learningout come needs evidence, research and an example of use on placement.

    is that any clearer?

    thanks Whisper! much clearer. sounds like a weighty document. not something we come across in general practice(thank goodness)

    Congrats, Whisper! I can't even remember the model we used in Queensland but now all I use is RLT. I only know Orems from my 2nd year of uni, and that was enough for me.
