Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses. Thus, it is essential that a nurse leader is consistent and knowledgeable on ways to facilitate the development of nursing practice environments that enable nurses to deliver quality nursing care. For such an environment to be met, it is my belief that I will not only be required to advocate quality care but also need to communicate articulately, be a mentor, a visionary, a mentor and a role
Nurses are the heart and soul of the healthcare system. So, it is very important to find out the factors that hinder in their field of care. Improving the physical environment in which nurses and other caregivers work, can improve both nurse and patient
Every nurse, at some point, has questioned why something is done. Perhaps the procedure misuses time, is painful for the patient, or is unnecessarily unsafe for the nurse. Is this process or procedure utilized because of an outdated method or is it proven to be the best practice? Thus, every nurse, and especially nurse leaders, have the unique ability to question, research, and discover enhanced nursing processes that can improve patient and nurse outcomes alike. The purpose of this discussion board is to discuss evidence-based practice in depth, including the nurse leader’s role, strategies for implementation, forces behind change, how organizational infrastructure and culture help or hinder implementations, and finally, describe the process
Dealing with families of patients with gentleness and kindness, realizing they are going through a stressful situation is also a duty of nurses. Pursuing a nursing career is taking responsibility to provide the finest care regardless of the patient’s age, race, religion, sex, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or their past. Keeping up to date on education, new processes, policies and keeping informed about new laws and regulations in healthcare, so outstanding healthcare can be administered is a nurses obligation. As a nurse, you have undertaken a responsibility to provide people the finest quality care that can possibly receive. It is a nurses’ duty to follow the code of ethics, to act safely, provide ethical care regardless of personal feelings about the patient or the reason they are in your care.
Nurses have a responsibility to encourage patients to be as independent as possible. Many nursing codes exist to protect a patients rights whilst under hospital care. This level of care also involves giving the patient autonomy in all interventions provided.
It is stated in the SNB pledge that a nurse promise to provide competent standard of care and also refrain from any actions that may endanger life. The nurse breached the pledge by failing to provide competent care for the patient. One of a few ways to prevent from breaching ethical principles, standard of care and SNB code of conduct is by proper documentation. Documentation is an accurate account of what occurred and when it occurred. Nurse’s documentation provides a clear picture of the status of the client, the actions of the nurse and the client outcomes.
Patients are aware of their rights; it’s unethical to distort it. Need arises to frame clear philosophy to safe guard their right. Therefore, nurses should endeavour to maintain and respect the patient rights to promote professionalism of action. b. Needs arises of framing nursing philosophy to direct all individuals effort in appropriate direction.
Nursing needs to think about what the clients needs and what is good for them. It has the responsibility to have a holistic nursing for clients. The nursing processes help to recover and improve their health state. On knowledge-based task, nursing needs to be knowledge-based and competence-assessed profession. It is because nursing has to make profession decisions for the clients; those decisions need to base on their knowledge.
It is purely therapeutic and should be planned, time-limited, and goal-oriented. Imogene King explained this further when she developed her Theory of Goal Attainment. She stipulated that interactions between the nurse and the patient must result in goal achievement (Webber, 2015). Therefore, the nurse must meet the client needs and help them regain control of their health. Regardless of the context or the duration this relationship, the nurse has the obligation to respect the client 's dignity, promote their autonomy, and respect their privacy.
Providing care to a patient is a particularly challenging process that requires a great deal of effort from a nurse. A nurse’s ability to give quality care to their patient is an important aspect to a patient’s life both now and in the future. As such, nurses must exhibit specific qualities in their practice in order to maintain the best standard of care for their patients. Given this, I believe that the standards of knowledge, advocacy, and self-awareness are foundational to the nursing practice and to a nurse’s capacity to provide quality patient care. Knowledge In group deliberation, knowledge was seen to be a vital quality within nursing.
