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
Evidence-based practice specifically focuses on a holistic approach that encompasses clinical expertise, patient values, and the best researched evidence to improve patient care outcomes. As healthcare trends change to comply with the adoption of enhanced technology, compliance of government healthcare reimbursements, and higher quality care, strong leadership and continued research is needed (Huber, 2014). Nurse leaders have the vital, but sometimes challenging duty of promoting evidence-based practices in a usually complex healthcare setting. Not only should the nurse leader gather clinical data that may help improve patient outcomes and nurse practices, nurse leaders should also encourage a work environment that is open to the change that results from evidence-based practice discoveries. Through the development of a building-block approach, nurse leaders can promote evidence-based practices by incorporating the process in every aspect of the healthcare structure they supervise.

The bathing issue occurs for months without anyone saying anything about it, because most of the elderly family members don’t even go visit them, so they are not there to witness or defend their relative. I do believe nurses should be taking care of their patients with compassion (Peate 1). I am sure that when their family members get sick they want the best care they could get so why not treat your patients like they are part of your family. There are many nurses out there that I’ve seen from my experience not even liking to teach student nurses when they go to their clinical. If they are not happy with what they do they should not be there making sick patients feel worse than they already
Kingston then chose the case of bed 9, Mr Tan, who came in for a case of uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus. Kingston had not consulted the team before making the decision and started to delegate the work among them. He told them that he would find out about what the types of diabetes were while the other two student nurses should find out about other details such as the pathophysiology, causes, clinical manifestations and complications of Diabetes. Throughout the week, Nicole and Natasha were so preoccupied with the task given to them that they were not able to focus on doing their skills properly. Because of that, they were reprimanded by their clinical instructor.

Implementation involves the actions of the nurse like recording, delegating, it can also be assertive, rehabilitative, supportive, preventive, educative and observational activities.

The implementation and evaluation of care given to a patient will need good communication and collaborative partnership between the nurse, patient, and other professionals in the team. For this essay, the patient will
Certain attitude and mind-set is needed by nurses that involve honesty with the patient along with their beliefs and values. Further, suggested that power is frequently conceptualised in term of source of oppression and domination, this might also become the means for challenging the oppression. In nursing field, power should be shared considering it as positive concept for nursing practice. Nurses should attain open provision of knowledge and support through this provision. This definitely needs nurses to have abilities and skills like effective and trust building communication.
