Conversely, the Francis report (2012) declared that nurses need access to precise, comparable and timely information to improve practice. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2015) guidelines state that it is vital that nurses take charge of their own research to ensure use of current best evidence in practice, and developing this research will promote person centred care (McCormack 2003). However, few nurses have actual experience in conducting a research study in the clinical setting (Squires et al. 2011). To enable the critique of this qualitative paper by Paul Canning, the Caldwell framework will be used, although other frameworks will be also be accessed throughout (Appendix 1).
Key theme selected We have selected the theme ‘Resource management’ to be our key theme. Resource management is essential for a nurse leader as resources determine the job performance of his nursing staff. It directly influenced nurses’ health and wellbeing then performance and patient care quality (Joel, 2013). Resource management is defined as the commodities in limited quantities that allow the work of the organization to be performed (Grohar-Murray & DiCroce, 1992). There are four types of resources available in clinical area: human resources, financial resources, material or equipment resources and information technology resources, for example, training to nurses, nursing shortage and workload, and budget for acquisition of new
They were just meant to assist the physician during treatment, assist in the patients personal hygiene administer medication that is prescribed by the physician and dress wounds. These were just things that any woman could do. Nursing demands much more now as they are educators, client advocate, and managers. More so it is a requisite for any field of endeavour to attain professional status, it is actually an attribute of a profession. Professional Autonomy in Nursing refers to the ability of the nurse to act based on her knowledge and judgement.
However, specificity is an area of specialization of nurses based on specific training. I aspire to be a behavioral nurse in a long run. Empirical precision, on the other hand, is based on verifiable observation and experienced. The use of previous experienced becomes handy in residents’ care rather than theory learned in school. Nightingale was able to provide empirical evidence of her work to prove to the military how she can make a difference in the injured populations.
Additionally, nurses are required to hold a license from the state in which they desire to work (OPM, n.d.). Licensure guarantees job candidates possess the necessary government mandated education and training requirements to work within that profession (OPM, n.d.). Certification in a profession goes further indicating the individual has advanced knowledge and skills within their career field (OPM, n.d.). Reference checks provide HR professionals with the necessary material to conclude whether the information given in nurse applicants’
Leadership within the healthcare field is necessary to increase skills, organization, understanding, and control within the workplace (Huber, 2014). The leadership role tends to fall into the hands of one who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, motivating, committed, and adequately communicates to the team (Huber, 2014). With each leader comes strengths and weakness, hence, the reason why self-assessment and reflection on leadership skills are necessary. Over the course of this essay I will perform a variety of self-assessment and reflection tests in order to identify my strengths and weaknesses as a current and future nurse leader. Results To identify my strengths and weaknesses, I took a total of six self-assessment tests; which consisted of
Advanced practice nurses (APN) have a vital role in the future of health care, especially since the enactment of the Affordable Health Care Act. With more citizens having health insurance coverage they will be seeking health care providers, and there are not enough physicians to care for them all. According to Letiziam (2014), advance practice nurses are licensed autonomous health care providers that have been trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients and their conditions. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella that covers four separate roles of nurses, this includes: the certified nurse midwife (CNM), certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA), certified nurse practitioner (CNP), and certified nurse specialist (CNS).
Nursing Delegation for the RN Delegation is considered to be among the most involved nursing skills which require a nurse to apply knowledgeable clinical judgment and accountability during patient care. RNs have an obligation to finding what is needed for patients and families and then using the appropriate delegation to staff to help carry out the plan. This helps maximize on achieving the most desired outcomes and also maximize the use of available resources. The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.
Twenty five percent of the marine corps jobs are closed to women(Mark) Most jobs in the military are not open to women because they are labeled weak and too feminine(Herbert). Women in the military would minimize discipline,and make for need of added sensitivity (Book). However, having women in the military could solve more problems and make for a better product(Mark) . Women in the military can lead to problems such as sexual harassment and deployment problems due to pregnancy(Pfluke). Women in the military is a significant issue in our society .
Clinical Nurse Leader As today 's healthcare advances, so must the roles of today 's nurses. One new nursing role is that of the clinical nurse leader. Masters (2014) defines the clinical nurse leader as "an advanced generalist role prepared at the master 's level of education" (pg 378). After successfully graduating from the master 's degree program, the nurse must also pass a certification test set forth by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing to become a clinical nurse leader (Fidel 2015). The education requirements of the clinical nurse leader build on those established in the baccalaureate nursing programs (Baernholdt and Cottingham 2011).
The type of structure BCPS has is formal (Schatz, 2017). A formal structure is focused on the relationship between authority and subordinate (Schatz, 2017). Task oriented leadership can affect my preceptor’s ability to perform job responsibilities because it focuses on an autocratic approach (Spahr, 2015). This is beneficial to the organization because tasks are being completed however, this type of leadership is not evidence based practice in today’s nursing practice (Davidhizar & Robbins,
While women in America celebrate these freedoms, women and girls in third world countries are burdened with the inequality of rights that their government permits. Moreover, forty percent of girls, under eighteen, in Tanzania are forced, by their parents, to marry older men for a dowry. Tanzanian women are regularly raped, beaten, and shamed (Yee 343). It is 2016, almost one-hundred years after American women were granted the right to vote, yet many girls and women still do not have equal opportunities and rights recognized by law. In many countries, women are not entitled to own property or inherit land.
Nursing Forum, 48(1), 71-80. doi:10.1111/nuf.12008 Discussion Question 1. Why do males feel the need to discriminate against other males who choose to work in non-traditional job such as nursing? 2.

In conclusion, I have already planned a backup plan if becoming a Pediatric Nurse and I do not succeed, I will become a Medical Secretary. In summary, a career I would like to pursue is a Pediatric Nurse. I have several qualities that suit me for this job such as caring, communication skills and vigilance. In my opinion, I believe I have chosen a career for me and would be able to work in this job until I can retire. As a child, I have always wanted to achieve something to help children and I believe I have found something that will help me pursue this dream of mine.
