Considering the changes that continue to arise in the healthcare environment, the nursing profession can make a profound contribution if it embraces nursing leadership. Especially to limit failure in care provision, strengthening nursing leadership continues to be fronted as the basis of care provision. Consequently, I view that nursing leadership ought to be central to the nursing professional goals. In this paper, I will reflect on my values and beliefs in nursing leadership and my future expectations from a perspective of a nurse leader in a manner that is consistent to what I would desire in nursing leadership. I believe that progress has been made, but some areas still need to be given more weight.
Serious or prolonged failure to follow this guidance will put your registration in danger. Individuals should be able to trust that their registered nurse will behave professionally towards them during treatment and not see them as a potential abuser or threat to their life. For example, some patients may become more vulnerable than others and the more susceptible someone is, the more likely it is that creating a relationship with them would be a misuse of power and your position as a registered nurse. Professional boundaries mean that we have a responsibility to do things to the individual in their best interest, support them and ensure our behaviour does not disengaged them from us. Although dealing with difficult issues can be stressful and draining work, professional boundaries help the registered nurse to manage their
Beneficence means that nurses should value patient’s autonomy, also to do good and always act in the greatest advantage of the patient. Based on Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, “Value Statement 4: Respect and preserve clients’ privacy and dignity” that nurses should prevent or resolve any situation in which patients are not given privacy or dignity. Furthermore, render correct care to support an honorable and peaceful passing in situations where life can no longer be continued. For this situation, beneficence should be well-thought-out by the nurses as informing Mr. Ahmad about his condition may let him accomplish his unfinished task of his life. Moreover, it may help in feeling more peaceful and reduce his doubts; therefore, knowing his condition could have been helped him in numerous ways.
Since this study was limited to only two clinical hospital settings, it is hard to say if the study can be transferred to various clinical settings. In an early study, Skei (2008) nurses working with an orthopedic surgeon reported difficulties collaborating with the physicians, which makes them feel powerless, by contrast nursing in hospital settings reported working with physicians well. The researcher mentions a need for a continuing study in the area of sociopolitical understanding. Once the level of competency has been assessed, the weight of a given nurses voice can be adequately applied. The study contributes meaningful evidence to nurses’ practice by promoting nurses to feel powerful.
Feldshuh includes Douglas’s description towards the importance of the study to signify the ease of justifying a cause; however it is intentional that Doctor Douglas does not reveal the true purpose of the study to the patients. Douglas has effectively begun dehumanizing the patients, he does not think the patients as being capable of understanding the importance of the study, and the risks associated. No efforts towards discussing the study or treatment are made with the patients, and Nurse Evers by supporting the study begins compromising her oath and her position as a nurse, as indicated by her
If you look out for the wellbeing of you patient and express what is best for your patient then you are actively practicing the value of altruism in the field of nursing. Next, the professional value of autonomy. Autonomy is the personal value of one over themselves, free form control of others (96). An autonomous person is one who acts intentionally, with understanding and without the influences of others opinions on them. As a nurse it is important to know when to give your input and when to hold off.
An objection that he replies to is that by treating a patient that wishes not to be treated, is requiring a patient to live a life that she does not want to live. Varelius argues that treating the patient based on objective prudential values is better for the patient than respecting her subjective values. Also, when the patient is presented with the idea, she will realize that her decision was based on false reasoning and she will change her mind. This makes Varelius paper much stronger and much more likely to
For her, managers and directors should be supportive and encouraging every nurse to further their education, either professional organizations, certification, career ladder or promotion. Authenticity is essential because trust is harder to gain, and other managers and directors can be dishonest and untrue to their profession. Calmness and maturity is an important factor of being authentic. However, managers and directors can utilize authenticity without abusing their power and unnecessarily breaking someone’s position or career. An example of good leader is genuine, values other’s opinion and can greatly influence
Post incdents review and debriefing of the staff team and clients has a positive impact on staff and client to learn from the incident and plan , so as to avoid repeating violence again. It is practiced in our hospital however, it is limited and not practicing effectively. Nurses would however utilize support from collegues and the incharge (informal supports) rather than from organization in structured way. Significantly, nurses need to feel safe and supported when they been assaulted and victimized.
