Community of Practice 4
In light of new technology and the massive increase in social networking, it is understandable that educationalists are embracing and utilising these new technologies to develop courses and tap into the learner’s social needs, which could prove to be a lucrative source of motivation. However, motivation is not the only reason educationalists are integrating social networks into the course design, that is, there is also evidence that demonstrates social networks not only allow users to share...
Student nurses’ experiences of community-based practice placement learning: A qualitative exploration
United Kingdom (UK) health policy has adopted an increasing community and primary care focus over recent years (Department of Health, 1997; Department of Health, 1999. Making a Difference: Strengthening the Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visitor Contribution to Health and Health Care. Department of Health, London; Department of Health, 2004. The NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (NHS KSF). Department of Health, London). Nursing practice, education and workforce planning are called upon to adapt accordingly (Department of Health, 2004. The NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (NHS KSF). Department of Health, London; Kenyon, V., Smith, E., Hefty, L., Bell, M., Martaus, T., 1990. Clinical competencies for community health nursing. Public Health Nursing 7(1), 33–39; United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting, 1986. Project 2000: A New Preparation for Practice. UKCC, London). Such changes have major implications for pre-registration nursing education, including its practice placement element. From an educational perspective, the need for increased community nursing capacity must be balanced with adequate support for student nurses’ learning needs during community-based placements. This qualitative...
...Gruene Community Assessment: Census Tract 3105
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, School of Nursing
Summary Synthesis Statement
An assessment of the Gruene community was conducted utilizing the community as a partner model. This included eight major community subsystems analyzed utilizing data from the windshield survey, data collection, and interviews with community members. The community of Gruene is comprised of census tract 3105 and a detailed analysis, diagnosis, planning, intervention, and evaluation was performed. The process was conducted in an effort to determine any potential health needs of the community, as well as its strengths and weaknesses.
Gruene lies entirely within the city limits of New Braunfels. It was annexed by New Braunfels in 1979. New Braunfels is in the county seat of Comal County at the foot of the Texas Hill Country. The total population is 8,965 (American Factfinder, 2011). The Gruene water tower is the most identifiable sign for the city. The Guadalupe River runs through the northwest border of Gruene. Gruene has been designated a Historic Town by the State of Texas. The name of the town is pronounced like the color “green”. Henry D. Gruene, the towns’ founder, originally bought land for a cotton farm in 1872 with his father and brothers. There is a great deal...
...addressed in the pamphlet bringing knowledge and awareness to both health care provider and patient alike. In the teaching plan, four domains/behavioral objectives with content and methods and/or strategies were reviewed and elaborated on even though additional domains were place in the pamphlet. These domains included
Remaining injury free while cooking: Persons in wheelchairs should place tilted mirrors at back of stove to see into the pots without tipping them.
Remaining injury free in the home setting: Hand grips should be placed in showers and near toilets.
Remaining injury free outside/in the yard: Flood lights and/or motion sensor lights can aid in increased visibility when arriving home in the evening hours.
Ability to verbalize community resources: organizations such as churches, meals on wheels, fire departments or even Life Alert are available to help when needed.
Epidemiological Rationale for Topic
Home safety after discharge can reduce injuries (in all ages) and help prevent hospital readmissions and return visits to rehab. Readmissions, from potentially avoidable situations, can lead to further complications on top of the initial health issue that landed the patient in rehab. Decreasing falls after discharge from rehab reduces return admissions which in turn decreases rates of pneumonia. Not only are the elderly more prone to falling than other populations but when coupled with a new limitation especially ones that require a...
Final Report on community service at St. Rose Nursery
Before actually partaking in community service, I always thought of it as a means of overworking students for the employers to save money, but after actually getting myself involved in it...I realized that doing community service is actually a privilege for us the volunteers. It gives us an opportunity to gain experience, widen our skills and get a better understanding of the hard labour and it is a process that essentially goes into the outcome of a product or service. Community service has literally made me realized how little I contribute to my country, how little I know about my country and has brought to my attention and conscience that I should try my best to assist more—free of wage—in the continuous growth of my economy. Doing my service at St. Rose Nursery, has opened my eyes to the not so easy process of growing flowers, plants and trees; for example how important fertilizers are and what a big difference the right fertilisers make—and also the different types of fertilizers and their functions . Before I never really understood the beauty of them nor did I realize how much work went into nurturing and harvesting them, but now I am more aware and more concerned about the health of trees and how they are treated and even situated in a pot or the ground.
On my first day at St. Rose Nursery, I was given a tour...
...therefore, it takes several other people to get one task done. This process requires one who will be exposed to a new environment while enhancing qualities to learn, understand, and work well with others. Learning is as much a part of our human nature as eating or sleeping, that is both life-sustaining and inevitable, and . . . given a chance, we are quite good at it (Wenger, 2000, p. 210).
Communities of Practice (COP)
“Communities ofPractice,” is a group of people that cooperate together to give back to the whole community in various ways (Nasir & Cooks, 2009, p. 44). There are two major modes of membership in a COP which are, knowing and belonging. “Knowing” has to do with the skills a person can bring to bear within a community that needs and values those competences. “Belonging” in a COP means being a member in a COP and with some relationships that emerge and are maintained in the community. As the member works with others, negotiates activities and meetings, collaborates on creating new projects and producing agreed-upon work; yet, their interface with other members of the community will affect them and perhaps change them over time (Wenger, 2000, p. 229).
First-hand experience in a COP
Our groups the first COP for this course were all assigned by the instructor. We all came together decided on what to do as a new group to think of what makes...
...many ways: steady employment within the tourism industry: hotel, airline and restaurant staff, bigger sales at department stores and shopping malls and bigger revenues at theme parks. In short, the more visitors who come to Hong Kong, the better it is for business.
But such a high number of tourists can also put a strain on many things. If the city’s 7 million population is already considered one of the world’s most crowded how much worse will it be if an average of 3 million people came to the city on a monthly basis?
Here are some implications of a city continuing to enjoy the trend of the growing number of incoming tourists:
1) More crowded facilities. Shopping malls, theme parks, beaches, you name it, as long as the place holds an interest for newcomers, it becomes a bit more crowded than before. This could make the experience of these places less enjoyable.
2) More expensive hotel rates. With demand surging amidst the steady inflow of tourists, hotel occupancy rates can easily approach full capacity (2010 had 85 per cent, up from 76 per cent in 2009). Naturally, as supply is depleted, prices start creeping up, dismaying budget travelers who may be forced to take alternatives such as cheaper but less tidy guesthouses. On average, a night’s stay in a hotel last year already cost 10 per cent more than its 2009 rates.
3) More traffic congestion. Roads to the Peak get t more congested while those taking the tram experience longer waiting times. With...

The Multitheoretical Approach
The multi-theoretical approach brings together the following theories: feminist theory, social theory, learning theory, field theory, social exchange theory, cognitive-behavioral theory, psychoanalytic theory, systems theory, and empowerment theory. No one theory explains human behavior completely but together they give us a better understanding and insight to human behavior.
People react to the same stressful situation in different ways. Explain.
People react differently to the same situation based on their life experiences and the experiences that have shape us as individuals. Our religion, culture, gender, age, socio-economic status, our affiliation with many groups, ultimately determines how we react to certain situations that we experience in life. A person gender, race, socio-economic status, religion, culture, education, will affect how they react to a certain stressful situation. These differences impact how we come to value the situations and experiences we come into contact with in our lives.
