(Answered) NR 509 Week 8: Reflection Post


In order to provide high quality healthcare to patients, the provider of care must possess the skills and competency indicative of a high quality medical provider. The rationale for measuring quality improvement is the belief that good performance reflects good-quality practice. A quality improvement strategy is defined as any intervention aimed at reducing the quality gap. Therefore, students must aim to achieve the skills and competencies indicative of high quality healthcare providers through the systematic implementation of a quality improvement strategy.

Activity Learning Outcomes

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Reflect upon providing high quality healthcare to patients (CO2)
  2. Identify knowledge deficits as determined by the APEA 3P examination (CO2)
  3. Identify educational resources available through the Chamberlain University library (CO2)
  4. Create a self-driven quality improvement plan aimed at decreasing knowledge deficits and improving performance (CO2)
  5. Disseminate your improvement strategies with student peers (CO2)

Due Date: 

Saturday 11:59 PM MT at the end of WEEK 8

Students are expected to submit assignments by the time they are due. Assignments submitted after the due date and time will receive a deduction of 10% of the total points possible for that assignment for each day the assignment is late. Assignments will be accepted, with penalty as described, up to a maximum of three days late, after which point a zero will be recorded for the assignment.

In the event of an emergency that prevents timely submission of an assignment, students may petition their instructor for a waiver of the late submission grade reduction. The instructor will review the student’s rationale for the request and make a determination based on the merits of the student’s appeal. Consideration of the student’s total course performance to date will be a contributing factor in the determination. Students should continue to attend class, actively participate, and complete other assignments while the appeal is pending.

Total Points Possible:  30 Points


  1. Reflect upon Program Outcome (PO) 1: Provide high quality, safe, patient-centered care grounded in holistic health principles (holistic health & patient-centered care). What does this outcome mean to you? Provide two (2) or more examples of how you specifically achieved or had exposure to this outcome during this course.
  3. Identify three (3) content domains in which your performance was the lowest percentage as compared to the national average. If two or more domains share equal percentages, select the three lowest domains for this activity. In the following example, the student scored the lowest (17%) in the Endocrine and Urology domains and 33% in Cardiovascular. The student would select all three domains. See the table below.
  4. Access the Chamberlain University library websiteto research topics and content areas related to the domains identified in Step 3. Explore the Access Medicine
  5. Create a self-guided quality improvement planbased on these resources. Include the following details:
    • Resource Name(s) 
    • Timeline for studying 
    • Goals/Outcomes 
  6. Share your improvement plan with your peers in the Week 8 Reflection Post discussion forum inCanvas.



In recent years, nursing education has greatly embraced reflection as a valuable tool for promoting learning among nursing students.  Similarly, self-reflection serves as a basis of meaningful nursing practice. In light of this, this paper seeks to provide a reflection on the course outcome of providing patient-centered care grounded in holistic health principles and how I had exposure to this outcome through the course activities. This paper also identifies the two content domain that I scored lowest in APEA 3P exam and the develop a self-guide quality plan

Providing High Quality, Safe, Patient-Centered Care Grounded In Holistic Health Principles

In the realm of nursing practice, provision of high quality, safe and patient-centered care is considerably important.  As the healthcare system strives to move toward value-based care, the health outcomes of the patients are increasingly becoming important.
