Discussion Topic

Top of Form

Activity Time

3 hour Additional Time for Study, Research, and Reflection: 1 hour


For this discussion, consider the role of the LPN and the RN in the nursing process. How would the LPN and RN collaborate to develop the nursing plan of care to ensure the patient is achieving their goal? What are the role expectations for the LPN and RN in the nursing process?

Use at least one credible resource to support your discussion (topic). For example, a credible resource could be the State Board of Nursing website, a textbook, or a journal article.

Be sure to use in-text citations and list your references in APA format at the end of your discussion.

You can find useful resources for APA and writing in the School of Nursing Guide,

What are the differentials for acute liver failure?

You are the critical care nurse practitioner covering the ICU at a busy teaching hospital. You are called to accept a transfer from an outside hospital. The patient is a 35-year-old native American female who lives on the Navaho Reservation. Prior medical history includes obesity, T2DM, and ETOH use/abuse. Patient presented to outside hospital complaining of RUQ abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, jaundice, and confusion.

Per the patient’s husband, she developed nausea/vomiting with body aches 3-4 days ago. She “felt like she had the flu” and was taking Tylenol for the body aches.

Labs from the outside hospital are significant for:

  • WBC 12.8 Gl 86 Tbili 20.4
  • HGB 9.5 BUN 14 AST 946
  • HCT 28.3 Cr 0.83 ALT 1110
  • PLT 73 Na 149 ALP 142
  • K 4.7
  • PT 34.6 Cl 112 Lactic acid 12.4
  • INR 3.6 CO2 13 Ammonia 281

Patient’s mental status quickly deteriorated, and she was intubated for airway protection and is being transferred to your facility for higher level care.

Respond to each of the questions below and support your answer with two or three peer-reviewed resources.

  1. What are the differentials for acute liver failure?
  2. What potential risk factors does this patient have for liver failure?
  3. What are the diagnostic criteria for acute liver failure?
  4. What are your priorities in the medical management of acute liver failure?
  5. What is involved in the pretransplant work-up for liver transplant?
  6. Why do you want to avoid transfusions in a potential transplant candidate?

Do a critique of the structure of the PICOT question. Is it in the correct PICOT format? Is the question specific enough? Is the patient population specific? Is the intervention a nursing intervention? Are there too many outcomes? Does the question make sense? Provide colleagues with suggestion on how to improve the PICOT question. No medical interventions!

Review this Twitter and share your thoughts on this issue with the class.

The DNP practice scholar has the skills, knowledge, experience, and ability to be a strong political advocate. Yet, despite this collective awareness, many nurses avoid becoming political engaged in health policy within the community and in some cases, within the organizations where they work.

This week, the focus was on understanding healthcare systems and the role of the DNP practice scholar as advocate for the patient, the community, and joining the national healthcare conversation. Reflect upon the development of your political competency and address the following:

  1. Consider a time when you had the opportunity to become politically involved in an issue (at work or in your community). If you pursued the opportunity what were the results? If you did not, what were the reasons?
  2. As you reflect on this week’s learning activities and your role as a practice scholar, discuss the area of your political competency that needs further development.
  3. Review this Twitter and share your thoughts on this issue with the class.  [ We are seeing +100k #COVID19 cases per day in the U.S. Last week, over 99% were #DeltaVariant. At least 19 states have confirmed cases of #OmicronVariant. We must act together to address current cases and prepare for the possibility of more Omicron ]
  4. Compose a 140-character Tweet that shares your thoughts and opinions about the Tweet. Be mindful Twitter only allows 140 characters (be concise). Share this Tweet in this discussion.

anxiety disorders


Doctor of Nursing Practice is a degree that requires a student to assess for evidence-based literature and to help translate the findings into practice for better patient care and outcomes. With this said, it is vital to know how to appropriately assess evidence-based information to ensure the legitimacy of information (Dearholt & Dang, 2021). For this discussion, the topic selected as a clinical problem would be anxiety disorders. I chose this topic because, as a psychiatric and mental health nurse practitioner, about 99% of the patients I see struggle with anxiety alongside their mental health diagnosis. Anxiety is a debilitating disease that targets both genders, but women are diagnosed two times more than men (Bandelow, Michaelis, & Wedekind, 2017). Anxiety is a huge comorbid in various psychiatric conditions and part of anyone’s life. I went straight to the websites that I have trusted throughout my nursing career in search of my clinical problem, and they are PubMed®, Google Scholar, and the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL). Another site explored is The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Looking through The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), their information is up to date. For example, the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine has topics on how anxiety is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic (Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, n.d.). This is an intriguing topic because we are facing this pandemic right now, and it has been known to impact patients who struggle with mental health issues. For AHRQ, although some of the information about anxiety is outdated, I can see at the end of the website that it has been updated in 2021 and reviewed (This proves that information is as up-to-date as possible. For PubMed®, Google Scholar, and the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), I find several pieces of literature in terms of anxiety but to ensure legitimacy, I need to make sure they are peer-reviewed. To explain discrepancies, it is important to take note of the author’s credentials, date of publication, any references utilized for the information, who the audience/readers are, if the evidence is cited in the investigation, and if there are any biases (Texas Gateway for Online Resources (n.d.).
