Answer to Question: NSG1NMA Nursing Management And Assessment
Develop Community Strengths
Although nursing has been the dominant model of care, I think they can also be engaged in the development of community strengths.
The community strengths refer to the way that nurses can integrate and coordinate services for the community in a holistic manner (Olds et. al. 2013,
The community volunteering was a key part of the nursing work.
I can only give you an idea of the important ways that they had incited community development.
One of these was the establishment of a camp where nurses could monitor individual health and take their temperature.
This volunteer work also included administering drugs and injecting them.
They also provided assistance to malnutrition victims.
The nurses were also able to manage the medical coordinations.
As such, I can say that nurses are able to make a big difference in the community by improving the health and morale of the people.
I believe that the community has grown stronger because of the above-mentioned tasks.
Our team worked together on new tasks, which allowed us to learn about the moralities of hope, love and fairness.
Survey Of Character Strengths
Now I can explain the characters maintained while doing these tasks for the community.
It has also developed spirituality by showing people that they should step up and help people in crisis.
It was instrumental in spreading the message of coherent joy one can find by comforting people in distress (Nucci Krettenauer & Narvaez 2014).
It gave hope to people who were suffering.
The malnutrition of the Ghanaian population, particularly children, was due to a lack of food.
Guo Zhang and Zhang (2015) explain the character creativity of this group. They were happy working together and found unique ways to help their fellow citizens.
Personally, they have been able to develop leadership and judgement that has allowed them to think in productive ways.
The main gift that was given was hope.
Fairness, love and compassion were other strengths. These are the things that make peace in the community.
