Taking on the leadership role of a charge nurse can be a stressful experience without proper training and preparation that leads to burnout and turnover. With more experienced nurses facing retirement, now is the time to prepare future nursing leaders. This starts with adequately preparing a nurse to lead within the unit in the charge nurse role. A comprehensive literature review was conducted regarding charge nurse orientation. Charge nurse competencies were not ...

Mental Healthcare For Youth With Type 1 Diabetes: A Call For Integrated Screening, Prevention And Intervention, Kirsten Nelson

Nursing Capstones

Adverse mental health outcomes comprise the leading complication of type 1 diabetes(TID)in children and adolescents(Cameron & Northam, 2012). Comorbid mental health conditions lead to decreased adherence, worsening glycemic control, increased family conflict, poor self-image, and decreased quality of life(QOL). Evidence shows20-50% of youth with TID sought mental healthcare over a five year period yet less than 4% received any form of care during that time(Cameron & Northam, 2012; Jaser, 2010). This literature review was based on review of a case involvinga10 year old male “Benji” whose mother brought him to clinic requesting a second opinion after seeking mental healthcare for “Benji” for five years without benefit. Historical diagnoses included oppositional defiant disorder(ODD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and reactive attachment disorder(RAD); medical history was significant for diagnosisofTIDatage4. Per report, previous providers avoided or limited medications secondary to concerns regarding TID. After careful evaluation and review of collateral information ...
