However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
A nurse’s occupation is not only to provide care for their patients physically but also mentally. Without compassionate care the cross bridge to trust and honesty is demolished, and often patients will keep their underlying yet crucial health concerns and issues to themselves because their nurse has failed to portray compassion. “Patients can feel more comfortable to raise important issues with the practice nurse than with their doctor” (Phillips et al., 2009). This very act of compassionate care can save lives, there are countless issues that medical charts, ECG`s, X-rays and ultrasounds don’t depict yet the only key to unlocking that information is the attainment of trust from your
Organizational barriers are about the culture, resources and policy in the nurses ' working environment. Inadequate support and time provided to implement new ideas and the reluctance to expand resources for developing EBP make the nurse feel not supportive from the administration in adopting EBP. Yadav and Fealy 's study (2012) points out that insufficient resources and insufficient time at work to implement changes are ranked as the first and third barriers to changing practice on the basis of best evidence respectively. Moreover, a lack of authority in the workplace to change practice is another barrier which inhibits the development of EBP in nursing. Furthermore, failure to motivate or reward nurses for critiquing research evidence and applying it in clinical practice makes it hard to cultivate a positive research climate.
Through the development of a building-block approach, nurse leaders can promote evidence-based practices by incorporating the process in every aspect of the healthcare structure they supervise. A successful leader promotes evidence-based practices by inspiring, enabling, and articulating the whole nursing team to embrace the best evidenced practices. Strategies for implementation of evidence-based changes stem from a complex network of a whole team that is focused on improving healthcare outcomes. This change
Nurses should work to assure that the relevant parties are involved and have a voice in decision-making about patient care issues. Nurses should see that the question that need to be addressed are asked and the information needed for informed decision-making is available and provided.

Intra-professional collaboration within nursing is fundamental
When they take care of patient, they often forgot the practice of preventing harm from patient which influences the practice. Stage2.

Advancement in the health care delivery system and knowledge intensifies the expectations and roles of nurses, leading towards provision of incompetent Nursing care in the Hospitals. Nurses are with patients throughout the continuum of life. Nurses are the heart and soul of the healthcare system.
Nurse’s documentation provides a clear picture of the status of the client, the actions of the nurse and the client outcomes. It is to facilitate communication, promote good nursing care and to meet professional and legal standards. If a nurse fails to comply the nursing process that was set can lead to mistakes. The nursing process includes assessment, nursing diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation. Nurses should not skip any 1 of the nursing process as it might lead to inaccurate baseline data.
Nurses may considered it as ‘theoretical’ and the changing process for practice is complex (C). They are reluctant to change because they think their professional expertise might be overridden (C). Undeniably, there are nurses in ward that are having abundant amount of clinical experiences. Therefore, their clinical decisions will mainly be guided by their own personal experiences but rarely on scientific research (C). It is not easy for them to accept evidenced-based practice and therefore, it is difficult for them to start develop the skills in
