The clinical nursing profession for public and community health
Some examples of alternative nursing practices include combining complementary or alternate treatments with conventional medical care, offering emotional support to both patients and families, teaching self-care methods and advocating patient rights. Nurses can use different methods to deliver the best care, including goal-setting, problem-solving, critical thinking, and evidence-based practices. Nurses should be conversant with the proper documentation procedures and visitation schedules to make sure that each case has been handled appropriately.
It is important that nurses are able to adapt to a wide range of situations when they care for patients to achieve the best possible outcomes. This could involve using alternative nursing techniques, or specific procedures or actions depending on the situation.
