Nurse managers can begin to learn these habits with self-evaluation and support from peers in the medical field. Challenges for Nurse Leaders Nurse managers create health work environments for caregivers and positive outcomes for patients.  A health work environment is a positive setting where caregivers feel engaged with their work and pursue growth opportunities. Positive patient outcomes result when staff
There are endless ways to create a bond between patients and nurses. One major and easy way to do so is to build rapport. Finding out what the convalescent are interested in, such as TV shows, movies, and sports are ways to get to know them. Furthermore, it can lead to a higher compliance level between the RN and the patient. Follow-ups with the convalescent can improve a bond as well.
One will coordinate with patient care, monitor the patient’s management, take vital signs, provide medication, prepare patients for exams, and work with medical teams. Working as a registered nurse, or any nurse can be rewarding. The greatest advantage of becoming a registered nurse, is probably earning hands on experience with patients. One should have clear communication skills, the ability to work with others as a team, should be very organized and have great critical thinking skills, and most importantly should be dependable and have high stress tolerance. As stated before, RNs can work in different hospital facilities, doctor’s offices, clinics, schools, military hospitals, and prisons.
"The unique function of the nurse is to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had the necessary strength, will or knowledge. And to do this in such a way as to help him gain independence as rapidly as possible" (Henderson, 1966). I feel that Virginia Henderson 's need theory guides my nursing practice the most. I believe that patient wellness is the focus, not whether they are sick or have a disease. Everyone needs care at some point.
For this week’s discussion I chose to write scenario 12 Nurse- Nurse. I really believe that being in preceptor’s role makes all the difference in new nurses’ life and it can also be very rewarding. By precepting we can be role models in our nursing professional. “It seems natural and obvious that all nurses, given their education, would share similar values and beliefs about patient care” (Porter-O’Grady & Malloch, 2016, p211). Preparing students and new nurses to transition from being new to the field and help them to achieve competency and proficiency is still remain concern in our hospital or work area.
Moreover, Davis (2013) noted that despite home hemodialysis benefiting patients, "With quality teaching principles and good training resources, patients can even make Nephrology nurses’ lives easier because of their increased independence" ( p291-292. 2p). Nurses taking the role of assisting patients on principle bases on their treatment help nurses eventually give the independence of treating themselves without help. Furthermore, not only does this make nurses job easier, but if needed help with hemodialysis less Nephrology nurses are needed. This treatment also benefits the nurses as well as the
Introduction: The goal of every nurse leader is to establish and sustain a healthy work environment for nursing staff. This must be a priority if nurses are to make their optimal contributions to caring for critical care patients and their families. The link between healthy work environments and patient safety, nurse retention and recruitment are well documented in the nursing literature. Nursing organizations like American Association of Critical Care (AACN) believe that all workplaces where nurses practice can be healthy if nurses and nurse leaders are determined to address not only the physical environment, but also the less tangible barriers to staff and patient safety; e.g. skilled and effective communication, collaboration among disciplines and effective decision making.
This large investment in the development of our newer nurse will improve the care at the bed side, reduce the incidence of errors and improve job satisfaction. Experienced nurses can also use simulation to gain valuable practice with low volume high risk activities/situations. The lived experiences in the simulation lab help to develop skills nurses can use with real
In this way, people’s lives have improved and interaction with others has helped me to develop professionally. I am very interested in the care of people in recovery. Working as an EKG technician at ICU with cardiac patients and post traumatic recovery unit, I know that it can be stressful and emotional, but the rewards are also high. I have authentic interest in enhancing quality of life of all patients, and remain dedicated to deliver 100% towards this. Given opportunity to pursue the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, I will be in a better position to fulfill my career dream.
As a result, I believe my interpersonal skills would enable me to be a competent and caring Nurse. As a nurse, I plan to provide excellent patient care by servicing my patients with compassion, respect, integrity and loyalty. For me, Nursing is not just another career; it is about compassion and helping people thrive through some of the toughest times in their lives. My greatest accomplishment thus far is being a wife and a mother. Being a mom entails a lot of endurance.
