Lack of resources has been linked with ‘missed care’ and a reduction in efficiency so by ensuring that the nurses had all the tools they needed to do their job, both job satisfaction and efficient care was improved. (Blackman et al 2014) The whole process of change was very long and drawn out. A prolonged period of introduction to change and transition has been shown to be less effective than when change is done quickly (Amis, Slack, & Hinings, 2004) As stated in Robbins 2014 it is common for workers that are experiencing negative emotions related to workplace change to increase their use of sick leave or leave the workplace altogether. This would result in a reduction of services for the clients of the service due to cancelled appointments as well as loss of continuity of care due to their particular nurse not being available. Continuity of care has consistently been shown to lead to better health outcomes as well as higher satisfaction rates in healthcare users (Williams
Evidence and Evaluation in Bedside Reporting Bedside reporting assist nurses with a chance to improve patient safety and increase patient collaboration in the arrangement of care. There is also less care correlated to inaccurate or deficiency of information because the report process includes actual patient apparition. Increased staff approval with bedside reporting supports teamwork and supports accountability. By associating bedside reporting there is an optimistic impact on the patient and their relatives. It is vital to put the patient at the midpoint of their own concern.
As well as developing a culture that is more open to the reporting of occupational and emotional fatigue so that nurses do not have to suffer in silence and receive the help that they need.

Their research states that oncology patients normally have complex cases and require a lot of knowledge and time. Due to the complexity of their cases, nurses on oncology floors tend to have much lower patient to nurse ratios and provide special training programs. This led to enhanced nurse autonomy as well as improve other aspects of their leadership skills such as improving their collaboration with physicians and other health care providers (Shang, Friese, Wu, Aiken, 2013). Overall, the findings showed that oncology nurses were more happy in almost every aspect of nursing environment compared to those on medical surgical floors. The study goes to point the relevance of the findings to nursing practice to show that factors such as including nurses in committees, empowering nurses to contribute to institutional decisions, and enhancing their leadership will directly contribute to enhancing the nurses autonomy in oncology
Not all people can become adequate nurses as it takes a special kind of person to embrace the struggles and hardships of nursing. Compared to other health professionals, nurses spend the most time caring for patients intimately. This type of investment is daunting and can take a toll on nurses. Therefore, many nurses are dropping out of the profession due to burnout and compassion fatigue, which is evidence of the harsh and demanding workload that is required for nursing. As a student nurse, these types of instances are preparing me for the intense environment that I will have to grow accustomed to if I want to succeed.
Thank you for your post. Working as a registered nurse can be exhausting and challenging, leading to frustration and unhappiness which can equate to burnout. The cause of burnout can occur in response to disruptive patients, beleaguered by direct and continuous contact with clients, mounting desk work, excessive workload, and shift work (Kar & Suar, 2014). Therefore, nurse burnout has been demonstrated by studies to have adverse consequences regarding patient care and safety. Burnout can affect the overall organization by increased turnover, decreasing the productivity of employees regarding increased absenteeism, and reduced quality of service (Nantsupawat, Nantsupawat, Kunaviktikul, Turale, & Poghosyan 2016).

Personal skills such as compassion, patience, being helpful, motivated, having good communication skills and being a good listener too. But after working at the nursing home with the women, showed me I hadn’t fully acquired some of the skills I thought I had, therefore helped me to further develop them. I definitely learned to be a much better listener, through listening to the women’s stories, and actually paying attention to it. I’ve became much more patient. Some of the women can be very slow in general, such as going on a walks.
Exercising regularly and having a fitness routine is an important factor in reducing stress.
