Teamwork, communication, and delegation in nursing are variables dependent on one another for success. This post is the first in a series on nursing delegation in which we will discuss the team nursing model, the RN 's role in task delegation, and how effective communication fosters teamwork which leads to better outcomes for patients and employees. Detailed and timely communication among registered nurses (RNs) and other team members, leads to improved quality measures and outcomes. In fact, studies have shown that negative outcomes were often linked to communication errors. As such, safety, delegation, and quality of care are dependent on one another.
Arrange patient details on abnormal results of physical and psycho-social assessment treatment, medications and laboratory results. Then develop goals and outcomes and list what can do to address each problem. Following these steps will help nurses or students to think critically and it will help to improve clinical experience and outcome of the patient. One research article published in pub med in 2010 regarding “Concept mapping” for applying theory to nursing practice. That theory-based practice believe that this will improve clinical outcomes and nurse satisfaction.
There seems to be some uncertainty of what academic pathway is best for the DNP due to lack of proof of some educational outcomes (IOM,2010). I do see myself fitting into this recommendation because I am considering to enroll in the DNP program in the near future. I like the clinical setting as it allows the nurse to be very hands-on. It also provides opportunity in other areas of the clinical setting. Recommendation
Continuous professional development (CPD) has beed introduced in Malaysia since 2008 to meet improved self-development and health care services among nurses. Being a nurse, when we take parts of activities of CPD, we nurses could apply the knowledge we have by treating patient by doing nursing care. From continuous professional development we would be exposed and knows the barriers to its progress and its impact on nursing practice or nursing proffesionalism. Continuous professional development (CPD) is an important tool in improving the nurse’s knowledge regarding patient’s health. It is a process of learning of to keep up to date with current practices in nursing practices.
It can be conducted by the either the head nurse of a particular ward or the clinical instructor. Student nurses get an opportunity to observe, analyze and be a part of decision making in nursing care and because of this they remember the nursing measures for longer time periods since they are directly involved. Nursing Care Conference is almost identical to the bedside clinic but is different because the patient does not have to be present for the class. When the group has themselves familiarized with the patient, this method is usually chosen. Both methods can be instrumental in the evaluation the students and should be planned earlier for maximum effectiveness.
As I advance to my practice, I would like to have a transformational leader who places themselves as equal to their followers and inspires them to achieve higher goals. Transformational leader allows nurses to make their independent decisions and encourages them to improve. Although leadership and management always come together, the two roles are not the same. While leaders focuses on people and relationships, managers concentrates on the task at hand (Cite website). Though I have only met a few nurse managers, I think the best management style for a new nurse is a coaching manager since their focus is the professional development of their followers.
Personal statement Nursing is one of the most demanding and difficult careers, but if the reward comes with thankfulness and trust, it is definitely worth it. My desire to take the nursing course was not spontaneous; I have always shown the interest in helping other people and it was my long lasting dream to become a part of a healthcare system. I fully realize that it is important to have a realistic understanding of what being a nurse means. For the last twelve years I have been working as a nurse in the operation theatre. I have got a valuable experience while working in the team with real professionals who taught me to follow all the medical instructions and be attentive on the working place.
It is very easy to get wrapped up in the day to day tasks that we complete as nurses. But in order to give our patients the best possible care, we must look at our day through a holistic lens. The following essay will outline the theory as created by the “lady with the lamp” Florence Nightingale.

The nurse must be able to discuss appropriate coping strategies with her patient and provide information in regards to their correct usage. In patients whose body reality has been altered coping strategies have been shown to be extremely effective in relieving immediate stress. (Niven, 2006) The importance of social supports should not be undermined, as active social support can provide an environment which is conducive to the integration of the patient’s new body image in society. The nurse should promote communication with both family and friends, social supports such as these can encourage the patient to view their new body reality in a positive ways. Patients with strong social supports are more liable to make progress in coping with and accepting their new body reality.
