The organization is a leading partner in improvements with advancing health, health care, and higher education. They serve as the leading information resource on the issues and trends impacting academic nursing. By setting academic and professional standards, AACN shows the importance of nursing and its ability to provide quality outcomes in patient care throughout the health care
The National and Midwifery council (NMC) 2008 code of conducts emphasise the importance of communication, stating that nurse must communicate in a way the patient can understand the information they need about their health. Therefore, for the nurses to succeed in reassuring, motivating, empowering and understanding Mary’s concerns, they must be able to communicate effectively with her and her family (Randall
Value Based performance for Patient Care Nursing leaders today must consider healthcare dynamics including, value, innovation, and versatility of services to meet current demands of change in healthcare industry, while empowering staff and promoting performance metrics in order to meet patient outcomes, and sustain financial viability of the institution (Finkler & McHugh, 2008, p.18). The strategies to lead the health care market competition must address quality metrics to qualify ratings and scores to make a difference in performance, monitor staffing and operating costs, and capital budget to manage contracts and reimbursement. These will be explored in the interview with Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Northeast Baptist Hospital (NBH);
First, when planning a client care plan, nurses must establish priorities and optimal outcomes of care that are measureable and can lead to a successful evaluation. The “SMART” mnemonic acronym is a guide process that is similar to the nursing process by using critical thinking to assess the problem and innervate a plan that can later be evaluated. (Claire, S.) The nurse should keep this process in mind that will help contribute to creating a successful care plan by making sure the goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and Time-bound. Nurses work with clients to identify goals and successful outcomes. Informatics is helpful because one would be able to use the collected data to research previous care plans or other methods that had worked previously.
Nurse managers can begin to learn these habits with self-evaluation and support from peers in the medical field. Challenges for Nurse Leaders Nurse managers create health work environments for caregivers and positive outcomes for patients.  A health work environment is a positive setting where caregivers feel engaged with their work and pursue growth opportunities. Positive patient outcomes result when staff
Apply Watson’s Theory of Human Caring to Advanced Practice Nursing. Watson’s Theory of Human of Caring can be applied to advanced nursing practice in many ways one great way would be to apply the ten Carative Factors as an action plan and a guide in opening a practice to foster a holistic caring nurse practitioner – patient relationship. To begin with the practitioner could use the first carative factor I helping to formulate a mission statement that included a humanistic-altruistic system of values. Before selecting the practice the practitioner could use the third factor of cultivation of their own self and looking at what their feelings of empathy is for other to help decide what practice specialty they should open. The seventh carative
screening, appropriate use of antibiotics, protective precautions i.e. gown, gloves and mask and appropriate patient isolation. Nursing leaders play a vital role in establishing practice expectations and providing the necessary resources and environment to ensure the spread of infections is minimized. For the reasons stated earlier, units that have strong leadership, and a perceived support for quality nursing care, are more likely to have engaged staff that promote hand washing and encourage one another to do so. Focusing on patient outcomes and cost-containment, as a transformational leader in the clinical setting, I intellectually stimulate my other coworkers by encouraging the use of evidence-based practice, I am currently learning in
The purpose of this paper will be to compare and contrast Lippitt’s and Kotter change theories as well as provide similarities and differences amongst the two. Change is vital in the medical field and especially in nursing, relating to implementation of these changes. The need for effective and efficient communication and appropriate leadership allows for easier implementation and interventions to occur. Change in nursing needs to be purposeful, have direction and have the capability to achieve desired goals. (Kotter 2008) The effort needed to apply these changes comes with great collaboration among the healthcare team.
Much of the CLABSI prevention is based on the nursing process and the goal achievement consistent foundational principles of King’s theoretical framework fit this initiative. Trust of the facility and the nursing staff is a key element in the public’s choice of a healthcare facility. The patient’s perception is scored by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the given quality data are available through Healthgrades and Leapfrog organization and patient experience by HCAPS. When the patient transactions between the client and the nurse are valued, and there is a collaborative effort, the goals are more likely to be met. King’s theory is foundational to the achievement of positive decisions by the patient and nurses are best positioned to facilitate the change (Graper, 2015).
While advanced practice nurses are on the rise to help ensure that all patients have available providers, the role of the doctoral nurse practitioner (DNP) is imperative to healthcare. DNPs will make a dramatic impact on health policy by nursing education and improvements in patient care in health settings and this will help decrease the gaps within accessing healthcare (Sawyer-McGee, 2016). The advancement to DNP is not viewed as a role, but as and academic degree (AACN, 2015). The DNP nurse promotes the development of a broader assortment of analytical, philosophical, and evaluative processes. This degree helps prepare the individual to become a stronger nurse leader within the clinical, academic, administrative, community, and in the political policy arena to achieve change.
