You can use additional references if you need to. I just need you to change the way they are worded so its not plagerized .

1) I think there is no question that nurses across the board should use a standardized nursing language, and that each specialty area can then expand upon that standardization for their particular needs. Having one set standard of documentation across the world allows a more fluid communication and understanding of practice between nurses everywhere.

In many hospitals now, electronic health records (EHR’s) are the standard form of charting versus paper charting. There needs to be a standardization across these EHR’s for any nurse to be able to come from one facility to another and understand the plan of care, teaching, testing and so on done for their patients. “Standardizing the language of care (developing a taxonomy) with commonly accepted definitions of terms allows a discipline to use an electronic documentation system.” (Marjorie A. Rutherford, 2008)

In nursing we are constantly learning and growing in our practice every day and to be able to access information across different spectrums that all use a standardized language helps us grow and learn from mistakes. “Consistency in accessing and communicating information throughout the continuum is important, and by having a standardized language to do so helps facilitate and improve this process.” (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2012)

Having this standard documentation for patient outcomes and plans allows me to better describe the patients needs for treatment, that’s why i feel it is so important for all RN’s across the board to be able to coherently understand one another in our charting.

2) Applying Standardized Terminologies

The standardized language is an essential part of nursing studies and application. It helps in creating awareness of the nursing language and helps in supporting the learning processes in nursing. Knowing standardized language helps in providing consistency in practicum and developing of critical thinking knowledge. Furthermore, it improves communication skills, which is essential in diagnoses, interventions and outcomes classifications. In this context, we discuss three terminologies that include NANDA, NIC and NOC[BS1] . The term NANDA represents the definitions and classification of nursing diagnoses. NIC represents the classification of nursing interventions, while NOC represents the classification of nursing outcomes. Ineffective breathing patterns are among conditions whose nursing responses apply NANDA, NIC and NOC terminologies[BS2] .
