I am a responsible coordination of the nursing team and a vital and integral part of the team. The nurses in the emergency units combine theoretical and scientific basis (essential) to leadership, work, judgment, initiative, ability education, maturity and emotional stability. "Therefore, the constant updating of these professionals is necessary; therefore develop with the medical staff and nursing skills so they can act in unexpected situations objectively and the synchronic manner in which they are
Informatics skills for all nurses Nursing Informatics is the "science and practice (that) integrates nursing, its information and knowledge, with management of information and communication technologies to promote the health of people, families, and communities worldwide." (IMIA Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics 2009). Good nursing skills not only involves the direct impact on patient care but the ability to record, store, access and retrieve information that will assist in the care the health of the patient. Such care may involve the transfer of patient or care. The advent of electronic system given a lift, ward, hospital or country makes this area of nursing care reliable for quick access and as such globally nurse acquire an adequate working knowledge of various micro processing outlets such as tablets, smart phones and other specialized medical devices.
I find the uptake of evidence-based practice is one of the fields that has profoundly affected the paradigm shift and is woven into each of the nursing fields, and since wide researches have been conducted so far, it imperative to note that the available material will equip and provide needed assistance. Stevens (2013) argues that the use of the knowledge which is gained from quality improvement efforts will definitely generate evidence needed to make systems improvements and transform healthcare. Therefore, utilizing the available resources in addition to conducting further researches, exploring on well-intended expert opinions and working together with the willing partners from the academy for discovering what works to improve health care guarantees growth of the profession. It is true that there a number of challenges to improving the profession, but there is no magic bullet for bringing success into the practice, several strategies are needed. Furthermore, what works in the context of care should be identified and the context variables implementation.
Indeed, it is necessary for nurses to develop some leadership skill, so that they are capable to delivery of high-quality healthcare despitefacedchallenges.Therefore, creative solutions should formulate to ensure that nurses can stand still in facing all kinds of challenges. “As nursing gains increasing influence in all aspects of healthcare provision, it is vital that practitioners develop leadership skills at an early stage in their careers”. (Middleton, 2011). In the economics squeeze and yet high demand on healthcare, development of leadership skill will be crucial in defending nursing jobs. A good management and presented leadership skill make it possible for recognition on the contribution of good nursing care makes to both patient outcomes and cost-efficiency.
Collaboration with your interdisciplinary team in nursing. Why collaboration is important to provide high quality and safe patient care Nursing in the last 20 years has changed dramatically. Even as a young licensed Practical Nurse I knew that being able to communicate with my fellow interdisciplinary team was going to be highly important. Not only for the care of the patients and their families, but to also gather the needed information to stay up to date on all changes in the facet of the healthcare industry. From my experience, you get most of your updates and need to know information from other nursing employees and through word of mouth.
Technology is advancing with time. And as time has passed the world we live in has adjusted and adapted to the growing technology. In other word advancing with technology has become inevitable. What is critical is that in the midst of all this advancement we must remember the nature of our profession. We must keep in mind that our aim in improving health care is not only faster and easier but health care that is patient centred Maag, (2006) found that it should be mandatory that future nurses must gain experiences that increase knowledge, teaching skills, and positive attitudes related to nursing informatics.
It is imperative for nursing research to take a far sighted approach in order to have a greater impact in the future. I personally feel that the ability of nurses to contribute to the promotion of health is a characteristic of highly professional and skilled nurses. I feel elated to hear and see the contribution of nurses in clinical meetings with other health professionals. Nurses bring intelligent ideas that will contribute to the well-being of individuals based on research findings. It is worthy of note that the care given by nurses are based on up-to date knowledge and research that supports the delivery of the highest standard of care possible.
Organizational Culture and Nursing Leadership Organizational culture is defined as "the set of key values, assumptions, understandings, and norms that is shared by members of an organization and taught to new members as correct," (Azanza, Moriano, & Molero, 2013). Organizational culture and leadership has been shown to have a direct correlation to staff retention, staff satisfaction, and work performance, especially in the nursing workforce. Although they each work in their own way, they are both important concepts in building a strong organization and impact one another in different ways. The relationship between organizational culture and leadership contributes to either the increase or decrease in performance, staff retention, and satisfaction. Hospital administrators continue to place a strong focus on evidence based practice and research to increase these factors in an effort to provide the highest level of patient care.
In addition to that, nurse leaders need to be proactive leaders, who clearly understand the organizations visions, missions and goals as well as getting their down liners to work towards the same directions. Being a nurse, the writer believes that nurses are a good example of leaders as they lead by example. Nurses continue to develop themselves and motivate the other nurses to grow and influence the way care is provided to the patient’s responding to their individual needs. Leadership do have play a major role in the workplace culture and it indeed has an impact on patients’ outcomes and also on staffs’ wellbeing. The concept of leadership is much wider than the management, though managers should also be leaders.
Theories are necessary to formulate how nurses provide care and influence nurses in challenging situations that occur. Imogene King’s theory of goal attainment is unique and describes interpersonal and dynamic relationships designed at attaining patients’ life goals, which signifies importance to the advancement in nursing clinical practice. King’s theory relied heavily
