For this essay the focus needs to be on analysing how a nurse cares for a patient with rheumatoid arthritis. This can be a fictional scenario but the essay needs to be written in a realistic way as if the situation is actually real.
Discuss the statistics from a local, national and international perspective on the long term condition that
the patient has presented with, what is the financial impact or burden on the health service. Use up to
date information from the last 5 years.
Introduce the patient cared for by the author in practice using a pseudonym first name only (brief
explanation of confidentiality statement, only one or two sentences needed).
Age, social history, their long term condition and how long they had had it, do they have health behaviours
which may have contributed to the condition. If the patient has more than one condition, you can focus on
one, as long as all the care discussed links to the condition being focused on.
Why was the patient being cared for at the time of contact by the author (were they being cared for at
home or had they been admitted to hospital, what symptoms were they complaining of)?
Discuss the pathophysiology of the long term condition (with evidence)and how this causes the symptoms
that the patient was presenting with (with evidence).
Using the nursing process approach ANPIE; (Assessment, Nursing problem, Planning, Implementation and
evaluation) analyse how symptoms were assessed (tools, diagnostics) (with evidence) and what
interventions were used to treat these (with evidence possibly link to NICE guidelines). Did the
interventions work (did the symptoms improve? How do you know, was the care evaluated? If so how? Is it
evidence based? Were the up to date NICE guidelines being followed for this condition?
Are there health behaviours which could be addressed, with advice to help improve/address these, is there
evidence that this can make a difference? Discuss the role of the nurse in promoting health and apply to
this patient (making every contact count, behaviour change theory).

care, advance decisions, treatment escalation plans, and choice of going home etc if applicable.
Explain the physical, social and psychological challenges relevant to the patient and carer experience from
living with the named long term condition (mobility, stress, financial, depression, isolation etc) and the
relevant research to evidence that this affects those with this condition from research (this will involve
looking for studies that relate to the condition and the experiences of patients). How has an integrated
approach to care improved the outcomes for the patient being discussed, is there evidence that integrated
care is beneficial, this may include team working, referral to specialist nurses.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
