Nurses recognize that psychomotor skills are significant but, performing without appropriate knowledge does not constitute nursing. The nursing knowledge about health and disease processes will be little use in the absence of appropriate nursing skills to execute.

Similarly, The abilities to plan as well as to organise the clinical work are of little advantage to patients or clients if the valuable nurses' attitudes such as, caring and patience are not manifested. therefore, integration of the abilities, knowledge, skills as well as attitudes in nursing is very essential and is the key to understanding and performing competencies.

This essay aims to reflect my experiences in relation to nursing practice during my clinical placement. It will demonstrate my knowledge, skills and ability to care for a patient being considered, who was nursed during the said placement. It also presents the needs identified based on the data gathered for further appropriate nursing interventions and discussed the entire process according to Roper, Logan and Tierney (2000) activities of living model. Most of all, it highlights the nursing process implemented to the patients to improve health outcome.

During one period of my clinical exposures, I had the opportunity to deliver health care with one patient who was known to have encountered problems on stroke. At that point in time, I found the case as one learning opportunity to look forward since I have only limited knowledge about stroke and limited clinical experiences in caring patients who have stroke. I believed that I had a learning opportunity to have handled the case on stroke, also termed as "brain attack". A research conducted by Wolfe, Tilling, Beech, Rudd, and the European BIOMED Study of Stroke Care Group (2000) revealed that, there are high mortality rates of stroke in areas of Central and Western Europe. An overall of about 4534 stroke events were known and the mean age of patients was 71.9 years. Thus, due to the aforementioned reason, I opted to focus in the said case.

For the purpose of confidentiality, reiterated by the nursing and midwifery council (NMC 2008), the patient selected in this case shall be call "Mr B", a 68 years old widower, and retired teacher who was previously diagnosed of hypertension and during the time of admission, manifested the signs and symptoms of cardiovascular accident. According to the medical history, the patient was hospitalized due to a suspected Cerebrovascular accident (stroke) on the right side of the brain, which was thought have caused or resulted problems with his balance and coordination. Cerebrovascular accident or stroke (Schonbeck, 2002) is a brain injury which occurs if the blood flow to brain tissue is obstructed by a clogged or ruptured artery, then causing brain tissue to expire because of nutrient deficiency particularly oxygen.

My patient (Mr. B) is 68 years of age, widow, now has retired from work and is obese. His height measures 5'11". weight is 280 pounds. while the Body Mass Index (BMI) measures 39 (patient is considered obese when the BMI is over 30). Mr. B is obviously overweight too. The patient verbalized that he thinks he have an unhealthy lifestyle.
