Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper that examines assessment tools that evaluate physical measures, and how applying Watson’s theory of human caring integrates the mind-body-spirit dimensions. This paper must demonstrate your knowledge of tools that expand the abilities of nurses to assess and evaluate clients in various stages of health, illness, stress, and life.
State the three assessment tools you selected.
Describe each tool and the population for which it might be useful.
State data about each tool, such as cost, length, the ease in using the tool, for what populations it is best designed, and the validity of information.
Describe how this tool enhances the assessment phase of the nursing process and affects the quality of health care delivered by the nurse.
Apply these tools to the vulnerable population from the Vulnerable Population and Self-Awareness Paper.
