Physiological Adaptation in Professional Nursing Practice

Q1. The priority concept of opportunity based on the performance analysis is

the physiological adaptation in professional nursing practice.

Q2. The identified concept aligns with the NCLEX-RN Test Plan definition

of physiological adaptation in the following ways: Physiological adaptation is a

process by which the body responds to changes in the environment to maintain

homeostasis. The body responds to changes in the environment by making

adjustments in the way it functions. These adjustments allow the body to maintain

a state of equilibrium or balance (Hall & Hall, 2020, p. 13). Secondly,

physiological adaptation is a dynamic process that occurs over time and is

influenced by internal and external factors. The internal factors influencing

physiological adaptation include the body’s response to stress, the individual’s

genetic makeup, and the individual’s current state of health. The external factors

influencing physiological adaptation include the climate, the availability of

resources, and the individual’s lifestyle choices.

Physiological adaptation is a complex process involving multiple systems

working together to maintain homeostasis. The systems involved in physiological

adaptation include the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular

system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the urinary system, and the

reproductive system. In addition, physiological adaptation occurs at different rates

and degrees in different individuals. The rate at which physiological adaptation

occurs is influenced by the individual’s age, gender, and fitness level. The degree

to which physiological adaptation occurs is influenced by the individual’s genetic

makeup, the severity of the stressor, and the individual’s current state of health


NR452 Capstone Course

Capstone Evidence-Based Paper Guidelines


The student previously analyzed their performance on the integrated comprehensive assessments and reflected on areas of opportunity and strategies to promote NCLEX-RN success and transition into practice. The student will now apply the priority concept (topic) to evidence-based professional practice upon which nurses have the ability to resolve or have a positive impact. There is a focus on the healthcare disparities of the individual, as well as ethical and legal implications to professional practice. The student will discuss how an interdisciplinary approach promotes quality improvement for the patient and evidence-based professional practice, driving positive outcomes.

Course outcomes: This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

CO # 1: Synthesize knowledge from sciences, humanities, and nursing in managing the needs of humans as consumers of healthcare in a patient-centered environment. (PO#1)

CO # 2: Integrate communication and relationship skills in teamwork and collaboration functioning effectively with health team members and consumers of care. (PO#3)

CO # 3: Utilize information technology to manage knowledge, mitigate error, and support decision making with health team members and consumers of care. (PO# 8)

CO # 4 Integrate critical thinking, clinical reasoning skills, best current evidence, clinical expertise, and patient/family preferences/values in the implementation of the nursing process. (PO# 4)

CO # 5: Explore the impact of professional standards, legislative issues, ethical principles, and values on professional nursing, using data to monitor outcomes and improve quality and safety. (PO# 5, 6)

Due date: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to this assignment.

Total points possible: 230 points

Preparing the assignment: Follow these guidelines when completing this assignment. Speak with your faculty member if you have questions.

In this paper the student will provide a detailed description of the relationship between the category from the NCLEX-RN examination blueprint, the priority concept (topic) selected based on assessment performance, and professional practice.

1) Write a 4-6 page paper (not including the title page or reference page) using APA format

2) Include the following sections:

a. Introduction- 20 points/8%

· Offer a detailed description of the purpose statement for the paper.

· Identify the priority concept (topic) from the Individual Student Comprehensive Assessment Trends: Longitudinal Performance Table drawn from

Stress is a physiological response that impacts the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and
social components. It also involves the adaptation of the organism, the coping resources,
and the environment. In young people, stress can be triggered by social interactions or
school requirements. This chapter is a narrative review analyzing scientific bibliography
from the main databases (NIH, Scielo, Redalyc) that explored the main stressors and their
effects on nursing students. These stressors include the care of patients, assignments and
workloads, academic evaluations, and negative or hostile social interactions. Data include
the deleterious effects of stress in nursing students as anxiety, depression, inhibiting
learning, and burnout, which negatively impact their academic development and health.
Finally, some interventions to reduce the impact of stress are discussed. Conclusion:
Stress responses in nursing students vary in duration and intensity during their academic
training; final effects depend on the coping mechanisms, individual resources, and hos-
pital environment. The effects of stress on nursing students impact on academic perfor-
mance but could also trigger several psychiatric disorders as depression or anxiety, as
well as other associated problems such as sle

Aims and objectives: To evaluate the mental health status, stressors and self-adjust-
ment of nurses in isolation wards at different periods in Wuhan, China.
Background: Mental health issues easily occurred among the frontline medical work-
ers of a major epidemic. However, the stressors and psychological adjustments expe-
rienced by nurses have not been well described. This is crucial to improving clinical
quality and nursing safety and ensuring nurses’ physical and psychological health.
Methods: We performed a cross-sectional prospective study using the Self Reporting
Questionnaire-20, stressor and self-adjustment questionnaire administered to front-
line nurses in Wuhan at two time points: after they had worked in isolation wards for
7–10 days (T1) and 2 months (T2). This paper complies with the STROBE reporting
guideline for cross-sectional studies.
Results: T1 has 92 respondents, and T2 has 86. The positive rates of mental health
problems were 26.09% and 9.30%, respectively, showing significantly different in the
two periods. The main factors influenced mental health were self-perceived stress
and only child status. The most common stressors were as follows: a large infected
population, high infectivity; concerned about family’s health status; high mortality if
not treated in time (T1); and long duration of the epidemic, separate from family for a
long time (T2). In terms of self-adjustment, 97.83%(T1)/88.04%(T2) of nurses thought
it was necessary, but 9(T1) /5(T2) chose to avoid addressing it, and 8(T1) /5(T2) utilised
a professional psychological counselling hotline.
Conclusions: Mental health problems among frontline nurses fighting COVID-19 need
special attention, so ad
