Empathy is a fundamental part of nursing. The more I grew in nursing, the more I have developed an ability to understands the need of my patients. As nurses we have the obligation of being honest with our patients and with our coworkers. Integrity is doing the right thing the right way time after time the way it should be done, even if there is no one there to acknowledge it. The most basic and common nursing theory we practice is Florence Nightingales.
I consult regularly with Ms. Freeman about client cases and how to best leverage community resources to better serve our clients. During these discussions, I am amazed at Ms. Freeman’s breath and wealth of clinical knowledge. I wholeheartedly support Shenita’s application and have encouraged Shenita to pursue a career in nursing. Her dedication and commitment to the underserved residents of Montgomery County are unparalleled. Shenita is the ideal candidate for this scholarship.
A leader may achieve this with captivation, emotional intelligence, and through the empowerment of followers (Hutchison & Jackson, 2013). Moreover, transformational leadership research focuses on individual traits and leader-follower dyad characteristics that influence organizational change. Many research studies explore this theory and its impact on the nursing profession (Fischer, 2016). Largely, transformational leadership in the nursing context is directly and indirectly associated with staff satisfaction, decreased turnover, and improved patient outcomes (Fischer, 2016; Bormann, & Abrahamson, 2014; Merrill, 2015). It is possible to connect the benefits of transformational leadership styles to the leader 's ability to empower followers, simultaneously increasing their commitment to the organization (Fischer, 2016; Bormann, & Abrahamson, 2014; Merrill, 2015).
It is noticed that this model of nursing has gained significant success and popularity among the individuals but some issues are related to the appropriateness of this assessment tool. Timmins & Kelly (2008) argued that this model serves as a checklist. Moreover, the association of the model with the healthcare is also criticised because it is very hospital and medical oriented. While some of the critics stated that activities of living are based on physical aspect due to which patients might face problem in performing these activities. However, some of the criticism has been raised regarding the model and its implementation in the nursing it is still considered as the most effective model to be used because of its simplicity and effectiveness.
As noted by the variables just mentioned, the nurses specifically wanted a leadership and organizational structure that supported Participatory involvement, as well as flexibility for work scheduling and personal/professional development. In addition, nurses wanted to work in an institution that had a clearly defined professional practice model that used the skills and knowledge of the professional nurse. Today, many health institutions have been accredited in accordance with the criteria of the Magnet Registration program by the American Nurses Credentialing Centre (ANCC) within the ANA (ANCC, 2011) In (Yıldırım, Kısa & Hisar, 2012). Aiken and colleagues (1994) examined mortality rates in 39 Magnet hospitals and 195 control hospi¬tals using multivariate matched control sampling. Magnet hospitals had a significantly lower mortality rate (4.6% lower) for Medicare patients than that of control hospitals.
To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line. Getting nurses and other front-line staff actively involved in efforts to simultaneously improve hospital quality and increase efficiency will require action both within institutions and by those who measure their quality and pay for their
Compassion is showing care for others and displaying a positive attitude towards the care and concern of others. According to How does it really feel to be in my shoes? Patients' experiences of compassion within nursing care and their perceptions of developing compassionate nurse, "The importance of this relational aspect of compassion to the participants in this study cannot be overlooked when planning and implementing care. Compassion is a process that can be nurtured through attention to patient-centered assessment and planning of care. Patient centeredness is no stranger to nursing discourse, however, adopting this element to care and compassion is challenging in today's healthcare arena, especially when treating massively increased numbers of patients" (Bramley and Matiti, 2014).
Introduction: Nursing is a noble job and it is a profession where it attracts those who have natural nurturing abilities. People chose to be a nurse as they have the desire to help and assist others and a knack for science or anatomy. Nursing is known to be an art and science. There are many skills that a nurse would nurture in and one of the most important skills that a successful nurse has is the ability to think critically. Being a nurse for the past twenty six years, I strongly believe that, the ability to gain the skills to think critically is not by overnight.
She was selected as a Fellowship of American Academy of Nursing (FAAN). In summary, her journal explains two research studies she completed with the provided funds at her disposal. The first study incorporated King’s concept of time. Although nurses think it is more time consuming to use the bar code to scan patient’s bracelet before giving medication, it has improved the level of patient safety. Messmer’s current research study shows that communication between all members of the health care team, regardless of their position, attribute to the success of benefiting the most important person, the patient.
It reflects the exploration of one's thoughts, beliefs, behaviours, approaches and values (Bibi, 2016). In healthcare, nurses are constantly interacting with individuals who may not share the same characteristics, therefore, it's very important to recognise these differences in order to successfully develop a therapeutic alliance which will lead to a healthy therapeutic relationship (Rasheed, 2015, p. 213 - 214). Nurses that don't take into consideration self-awareness tend to project personal opinions and beliefs onto those who may not share the same values. (Rasheed, 2015, Bibi, 2016) Therefore, being aware and staying neutral will allow nurses to be person-centred, participating in active listening and having mutual understanding. Reflection is an important aspect of self-awareness and allows health professionals to look back and analyse practices, identifying which aspects need further development (Rasheed, 2015, p. 214, Bibi 2016).
I found Christine Candio’s on changes in the health care landscape to be a powerful personal narrative that I could relate to. Christine touched on some very poignant and relatable topics, often connecting her points back to nurses and nursing students. I personally found that her analogy of a “wave” of new healthcare regulations and practices and her explanation of why she loves nursing resonated the most with me reflectively. Change, as Christine notes, is a fundamental and necessary part of the medical field. However, sometimes a lot of changes all at once can be overwhelming to healthcare workers – especially nurses who deal with patients most frequently.
NU 413 Week 9 Discussion Board Post student response to Katie-Lynn Fournier by Kathryn Moultrie Good afternoon Kathie, Enjoyed reading your post, and seeing how other organizations handle the operations of their facility and nursing departments. My biggest concern with improving quality care and patient safety issues in that, the responsibility is not ours alone, our Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) and Director of Nursing (DON), and senior nursing management staffs to lead the journey Disch J. (2008). I find it overwhelming that the majority of the research literature (studies, surveys and reports believe nursing plays the pivotal role in changing the face of health care and improving quality care and patient safety. In order for the future of health care to change, changes must begin at the top with stakeholders, the hierarchy and nursing management, nurses as leaders within their organizations.
Paul Mitchell will benefit me by giving me the tools and concepts that I need to learn to succeed in the hair and beauty industry. It will teach me things that I didn’t know before and help me grow to be better than I was yesterday and the day before. I live each day to be better than I was yesterday and to learn from my mistakes and just try not to make the same one again. My biggest accomplishment I would say would be the day I graduated from High school and attended three years in college. This was the biggest accomplishment in my life because not too many young ladies can say they graduated from high school and attempted to go to college.

Helping people has always came easily to me, whether it was calming down an upset child or taking care of my sick family members. I like to see the way a person’s face lights up when you do something to positively impact their life. Having the mentality to put other people’s needs before my own has greatly influenced my choice to achieve my RN degree. Because I want to further my education in nursing, transferring schools after my two years at Central Lakes College to get a Bachelor’s degree is an option I am considering. Another goal of mine is to become the first in my family to graduate college.
