As a nurse, you’ll regularly work one-on-one with patients, and proper communication in such situations means far more than just giving a dose of medicine or starting an IV. Nurses are responsible for talking to patients and helping them understand medical situations, which can be complex and quite scary to the person who 's going through such tribulations.

As discussed on the website of Carrington College, Communication skills, dealing with pressure, and self-confidence is the most important things when it comes to important skills for a health career. Looking for your colleagues and advisors for advice is the best way to help you with your skills, so they can help you strengthen them (Carrington). To be a nurse it is also important to be focused and work well under pressure. I consider myself to be very well at these skills. In the article “Skills for Nursing Practice” The authors note that Nursing takes skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, and compassion.
In healthcare institutions, nurses are the backbone of every healthcare and always the first contact patients meet on the arrival into the hospital. The nurses’ ability to communicate effectively with patients influence patients’ care and their belief about care. Through effective communication, nurses help patients to know and understand their health problems and give them guide on how to care for themselves. Effective nurse-patient communication requires listening and honesty. This will enable patients to talk about health issues including emotional, social, mental problems that disturb them.
Through being a student nurse, I was taught and molded to become a safe and practical licensed nurse. I endured a whole year of reading and book work, sleepless nights and a whole lot of sacrificing to become a future nurse. Through all my days in a clinical setting and shadowing different care team members, one of the most valuable lessons I have picked up on is the good and bad habits health care members attained over the years when it came to professionalism in the workplace. I have realized that for me to be a successful and professional nurse in the field, it is crucial to be respectful, advocate for patients, show integrity, look the part and have good personal hygiene.
Professionalism in the Workplace As a nurse, a person is placed at the forefront of the healthcare system. A nurse is often times is the first person a patient interacts with on the healthcare team. That impression is one that can make or break an experience and as a nurse it is your privilege to represent an organization in a professional wholesomeness. There are endless instances where professionalism is the standard that nurses are held to and tasked to maintain (Mackey, 52).
Promoting self awareness and self-efficacy for psychiatric nurses Faten H. Alam Psychiatric Nursing, Menoufia University, Egypt Introduction A workday of the nurse is loaded with individuals: patients suffering from pain or nearing death, and relatives attempting to comprehend and adapt to their loved ones’ conditions. Most nurses are attracted to the profession by a wish or want to care for others, and many are more likely to think that taking time for self-examination or self- consideration is highly self-indulgent.

Nurses are at the core of multi-professional teams as they collaborate with multiple other medical and non-medical role-players (Jones, 2006:20). While doctors generally head-up multi-disciplinary groups, it is often nurses, who have direct contact with both patients and other professionals, who are in a better position to manage healthcare teams (Kosinska & Niebroj, 2003:71; King, 2000:63). An example of effective nurse leadership was evident at my CHC visit, where the clinic manager is a nurse who collaborates with all team players. I particularly noted that she did not give orders, but mentioned how she called meetings with staff members, presented them with objectives and lead them to suggest solutions. She acknowledged that certain members, especially doctors, were not always happy with her leadership, but that she solved these challenges by suggesting compromises that best served the patients’
Nursing is a profession that can be challenging nowadays because nurses will be seeing patient or career’s expectation of services that cannot be met with existing resources. As a graduated nurse leader currently working at one of the government hospitals in Malaysia under the Female Medical Ward, the job can be both advantageous and challenging at the same time. Good communication is very important between nurses and their patients as it will lead to a successful outcome of nursing care of each patient. Besides, communication between the nurses has never been more crucial as well.

I also agree with all of her statements and opinions about malpractice, doctors commiting fraud, and other of her co-workers stealing medical office supplies. In order for a practice, facility, or organization to survive and succeed everyone has to work together with morals, respect, and values for everyone and everything. Larnette stated that she tries her best with all the barriers she has at her medical office by working as a team with all health care professionals at her place of
As we got more into the scenario, I felt a bit more confident because these are some questions we can ask and almost fell like a real patient talking to us. These questions sally was asking are very relevant and realistic; questions that a patient might ask in the preoperative phase. I remember when I went into surgery, I was asking the doctors and nurses questions upon questions because of the fear of unknown. If the patient knows the information and the facts, the patient is more comfortable and is less anxious. Surgery is a scary thing, so knowing information is very beneficial.
I was highly impressed by the overall teamwork in the emergency department. It has a sense of organized chaos that would have taken me some time to adjust to. My nurse and I ended up going through a large group of patient during the time I was there. The nurse has this uniformity to how she would get her tasks done. The thing that through me off was the amount of stuff got done with our patients by other people.
At the end of the meeting, I observed the team (nurse, social worker, and nurse practitioner) debate on the patients’ request for increasing their level. The decisions were mainly based on the patient’s behavior and interaction with other patients on the wing. Being compliant with medication, therapy, group sessions, and self-care were also factored in the consideration. I did observe an RN and psychologist discuss a plan to prevent two patients from arguing or becoming violent. They were discussing ways that were fair to both patients without compromising their needs or care.
