Introduction Nursing is a profession. Besides caring patients, it also requires management and leadership skills to raise its professional standard. We have been introduced the idea of nursing leadership and management in this course. We were also assessed by doing group interview and presentation on the themes related to nursing leadership and management. The purpose of this reflective journal is to reflect the lessons we learnt during our preparation of the presentation.
Reflection has been strongly advocated by the English National Board for Nursing & Midwifery (1994), and a wealth of nursing literature over the past decade had been published to improve nursing practice. Reflection is an in-depth consideration of events or situations outside of one-self, solitary, or with critical support. Burnard (1995) argues that, reflection has its roots in experiential learning, as it forms the second stage of the experiential learning cycle. Active reflection gives nurses the confidence in terms of clinical decision making. It can also be a meaning of identifying strengths and weaknesses in practice and enabling nurses to learn from their mistakes.
Before graduate school, the importance of the nursing process step was embedded in my thought process, however, as a master’s prepared nurse, I subsequently have evolved my thought process as all-encompassing. I now take into consideration the individual, their perspectives and how their beliefs can impact an outcome. Furthermore, I aspire to empower others to actively participate in their own health care or in a healthcare organization rather than giving directions. Additionally, as I am in contact with patients/families, healthcare teams, and healthcare organizations, I purposefully strive to professionally support and shape positive relationships in an attempt to achieve effective outcomes. Therefore, effective relationships are now conducted through the assemblage of standards, evidence-based knowledge, and a sympathetic approach.
First impressions are made and these judgements can greatly affect how a client perceives a nurse (Patrick, 2013). Through this initial assessment, the nurse can obtain information that is crucial in providing the client with effective holistic care. Nursing assessment framework tools are used to help the nurse obtain accurate information about the patient’s wants and needs. This initial assessment based on subjective and objective data, helps to determine the patient’s actual problems and potential problems (Weber & Kelley, 2013). An assessment is carried out to obtain objective data and a physical baseline of the patient on admission.
The purpose of this assignment is to explore the principles of empowerment in nursing practice. The essay will define what health promotion is and how it is important to empowerment and how they both link. I will also be discussing my artefact and what health promotion models have been researched and used throughout my essay and in the making of my artefact and the reasoning behind the decisions. The main topic of this essay will be focusing on how I can empower someone with a learning disability to communicate using a communication board to express their wishes and needs to the medial staff. During the late 1980’s the theme of empowerment was being discussed within many nursing literatures to link how empowering the patients, nurses, doctors and staff members was important to building a supportive team.

Education brings change in behaviour of the individual in a desirable manner; it aims at all round development of an individual to become mature, self sufficient.

Patients will only heal well if we give them the opportunity to voice how they feel and tend to their needs and wants to make them comfortable. Another theorist I relate to is Imogene King and her theory about goal attainment. Patients have to be viewed as an open system that interacts with their environment wherever they are. Each patient is an individual with an individual life and must be treated as such. As a nurse, it is our duty to talk with the patient and their family to set goals and achieve said goals in a way that is possible for the patient.
Becoming A Professional Jordan A Oxford Chamberlain College of Nursing Professor Borror NR: 452 Capstone January 2018 Becoming A Professional Nursing school teaches you the foundational knowledge needed to practice as a nurse, but the transition from nursing student to professional nurse is where you learn ‘how’ to be a nurse. Making this transition is time consuming and full of emotional ups and downs as applications are filled out, interviews are completed, state licensures are applied for, and boards are taken. Although the process is often similar for each nursing student, the specific steps taken, and the emotions experienced are particular to each person. The biggest thing to remind ourselves of through everything is the reason we started,
