However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
Part A As part of my studies of the Perspectives on nursing module I have been assigned to examine dignity as a value which underpins nursing practice. Dignity is a multi-faceted concept and can be defined as ‘’ The state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect’ (https://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/dignity, 2015)’. Respect for the dignity of the person is the number one principle of the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives (NMBI, 2014). Also, this principle notably finds its origins in the Universal Declaration of human rights (United Nations, 1948) (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, 2014). Throughout this piece I will emphasize how this principle interacts with nursing
They need to have the knowledge and skills to improve both the safety and quality skills - that they will learn in nursing school. "The mission of QSEN is to address the challenge of assuring that nurses have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSA) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems in which they work (Tolansky & Moore, 2013)." QSEN is making sure that the nurses provide high quality, safe care and it helps them to meet the challenges of healthcare - that is improving - as they move from applying the six QSEN competencies. "The major QSEN contribution to healthcare education was the creation of six QSEN competencies (modeled after the IOM reports) and the pre-licensure and graduate-level knowledge, skills, and attitude (KSA) statements for each competency (Cronenwett et al., 2007)." The six competencies of the QSEN is patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, and
Good communication between nurses and patients is essential for the successful outcome of individualized nursing care of each patient. To achieve this, however, nurses must understand and help their patients, demonstrating courtesy, kindness and sincerity. The qualitative analysis led to the emergence of the four themes from the focus group data. From the students ' point of view, ' initial clinical anxiety ', 'theory- practice gap ', clinical supervision ', ' professional role ', was considered as important factors in clinical experience. There are several issues, especially
Effective communication is one of the most fundamental tools of the nursing practice. Communication involves two parties the conveyor and the recipient, in which information is exchanged through personal and interpersonal mediums (verbal and non-verbal forms), allowing the message conveyed to be received and understood. Ultimately effective communication in healthcare reduces barriers constructed by language and cultural differences etc, creating a safe environment for the client in which they can actively participate in positive health-related behaviours. This explanatory synthesis will explore the concept of self- awareness in relation to therapeutic communication and how it significantly influences nurse-client rapports. It will also
Skills required are based on active listening, eliciting and engaging preferences, needs and values as part of the initial interview. Creating care plans in which the patient is an active partner, one with a voice. Effectively addressing barriers, ethical and legal issues, patient chosen surrogates or family issues. A masters prepared nurse is asked to be reliable in assessment and monitoring their own input, reminders to remain patient-centered. Nurses at this level must be able to create cultures in organizations that support patient and family
Introduction: A world of opportunity awaits the nursing profession willing take on managerial responsibility. Nurse managers guide and lead frontline nurses while contributing to organisational success. They work together to provide the shared goals of efficiency, common care goals and excellence in clinical care, education and research. Managers outline the expectations for excellence in nursing thus optimizing quality and a ‘just culture’, which balances the need for open disclosure with a quality learning environment and culture (Boysen, 2013). Nurse managers connect frontline staff and middle-upper management, ensuring communication is maintained.
Compliance is the willingness of the patient to work with the doctor, disclose information completely, and adhere to the treatment plan that the doctor presents to the patient. I have understood that doctor-patient relationship is crucial in health care for the betterment of the
Assign task according to their proficiency level. Teach novice nurses and students. Be of good and exemplary behaviour, one who complies with the policies and procedures of the hospital.

All these require expert proficiency and I try to mentor my staff to become proficient in these areas.
