Student’s Last Name 1 Student’s Name Instructor’s Name Course Date Nursing Experience in African Countries Knowledge was found to have a substantial impact on how nursing methods were used (Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha 7). 90% of nurses provided wrong answers to knowledge-related questions, according to the study (Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha 7). The authors assert that, in light of this conclusion, nurses lack the knowledge necessary to apply nursing procedures. 99.5% of nurses had a favorable assessment of nursing procedures, according to the qualitative and quantitative data (Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha 7). The authors' conclusion was that, due to mentality, using nursing methods is not troublesome. Because of this, Ethiopian nurses thought that the largest obstacle to utilizing nursing protocols was education. The third finding indicated that the scientific methodology-based nursing practices were not applied at the hospitals under study (Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha 7).100 percent of the subjects acknowledged not using any nursing procedures. Nursing process knowledge was found to be strongly correlated with sociodemographic factors including education levels. Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha (7) found that nurses with Bachelor of Science degrees were more knowledgeable about how to apply nursing processes than those with diplomas based on their research.
Student’s Last Name 1 According to the study's findings, the majority of enabling and supportive factors did not motivate nurses to apply nursing practices in their routine job (Hagos, Alemseged, and Balcha 7). The authors concluded from these findings that 90% of the nursing workforce in Ethiopia wants the government to encourage the adoption of nursing practices in the country's hospitals because the country has little knowledge about them. Exposure of Ethiopian nurses to the workplace Concerns regarding the occupational exposure of medical personnel to biological material are widespread in the medical field. According to Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie (e14420), healthcare workers are at risk of developing life-threatening diseases like hepatitis B and C and HIV due to exposure to blood and bodily fluids. In this sense, occupational exposure is prevalent in developing countries like Ethiopia. Furthermore, it is important to keep in mind that most Sub- Saharan African developing countries have the highest rates of HIV infection (Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie e14420). There hasn't been much research in Ethiopia to describe the state of normal precautions that occasionally affect health care personnel.. Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie's study (e14420) aims to examine occupational exposures in the medical workforce in eastern Ethiopia. 457 healthcare professionals, including nurses, were enrolled in the study. They came from 20 healthcare facilities, including 20 hospitals, in the eastern region of Ethiopia. The questionnaires used in the study (Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie e14420) had an 84.4% response rate. The findings indicated that a large proportion of Ethiopian healthcare professionals are exposed to significant amounts of blood and bodily fluids. Furthermore, according to Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie, the investigation exposed subpar

The authors contend that medical professionals from this area of Ethiopia, and To guarantee that operational exposure to these potentially dangerous biological contaminants is minimized, health care personnel' training needs to be improved, among other things (Reda, Fisseha, and Mengistie e14420).
