Reflection Qualities that make an effective nursing leader are the same qualities that many other nursing staff and general public possess. Such as, the ability to support and empower their team members, be well organized, remain consistent with their expectations, and be able to communicate with their team. Support and empower the team members An example of this quality is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on one of the units at Wascana Rehabilitation Center (WRC), where I had one of my clinical rotations. This nurse would ask each staff member if they had any concerns during their daily huddles. Particular case that was discussed for a few days was regarding a patient’s family member (distant) who would visit every Tuesday and steal patient’s
She reported to her physician that she was experiencing stress as a result of her involvement with both her direct supervisor and the human resources department on the job. Her doctor diagnosed her as having adjustment disorder with anxiety. Her employer, Sutter, granted her a leave of absence due to stress for just over 30 days. When Higgins-Williams returned to work after her leave of absence was over, she received a negative performance review and experienced
Management of Care Case Study Josepha is working on a medical surgical unit with three other RNs and one LPN. There is also a male and a female patient care tech. Josepha has been a nurse for four months, and after completing two months of orientation she takes a full assignment as a registered nurse. Josepha feels that the assignments she receives are not always fair, as she tends to get the most challenging clients. In addition, she is most frequently assigned any change of shift admissions.
“Don’t worry, you’ll be a phenomenal trauma nurse,” Ginny says, smiling, while doing an observation on the trauma unit floor. Glancing at Chiquita with sparkling green eyes, she continues,” You pretty much understand the concept of patient care and how nursing goes. Since you are an employee at Sentra already, you will be able to experience hands on with the trauma unit.” “Possible you are right Ginny, but I know my role as a Nursing Care Partner (NCP) and the hardship that comes with transitioning into the Trauma unit, however I know I need perform at a high expectation,” replies Chiquita, while exiting a patient room, they both reached over to receive some hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of any possible infectious diseases to other
During My Observation, I had the opportunity to observe Terkisha, a Registered Nurse, who was a kind person who gave me lots of information. Not only about nursing but about the Hospital in general. Before heading to the observation, I had a clear knowledge of what a Nurse does in a hospital setting. During my High school years, I had the opportunity to observe many nurses in different departments. Nursing was never a choice I had thoroughly thought about to become my career in the future.
The truth of the matter is that in most cases nurses are short staffed and must maximize their time effectively and effortlessly unbeknown to patients. The three main concepts I selected for my final project will be covering Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamStepps), Patient Centered Medical Healthcare/Patient Care and Touch System (PCMH/PTCS) and High Reliability Organizations (HRO) within all Army medical practices. All in all, how they play a major factor in the nursing field from a nurse’s and supervisor perspective in the Army setting based on my experiences. Each will build upon each other in order of precedence. Working
Travel nurses are typically RNs (registered nurses), but there are also traveling jobs for LPNs and LVNs (Licensed Practical Nurses and Licensed Vocational Nurses), and other allied health professionals. They work in hospitals, clinics, outpatient centers, nursing homes, emergency medical facilities and a variety of other health care settings. Wherever they go, they help people, and they are rewarded well for that. Does this sound like it could be a job for you? If you're already a nurse, you're well on your way.
The career I chose to pursue is Registered Nurse. The reason why I chose Registered Nurse as my career choice is I love helping people. Making sure they are taken care of in every area from bathing, to cleaning, to hospitality. Registered Nurse is a good choice because you get to work with a variety of patients, and kids in the pediatric department and geriatric. Nurses are also very specialized in neo-natal intensive care.
Describe the strengths you demonstrated in the interview This reflection is based on the first introduction + initial assessment that I did which were on the 06/10/16. I believe that I did cover the requirements of meeting with a service user in a hospital setting which is: Introduction, consent, timeout and the role of a social worker in the hospital setting. The strengths that I believed I demonstrated in this interview was the use of open questions which allows the service user have a bit more freedom with their answers as opposed to closed answers with closed questions. I also used a strength approach, by highlighting that the service user did admit herself to the hospital (which is a skill that reflects that she can seek and support

Today’s lecture on the physician assistants (PA) was very informative. Mrs. Hughes spoke on what a physician assistant is, what they do as well as what the requirements are for those who chose the career path. PA’s are individuals whom practice medicine while also being under the supervision of medical doctors or physicians. They can work in all areas of medicine including emergency medicine, surgery and psychiatry which Mrs. Hughes works under. Within this occupation individuals have the ability to prescribe medicine, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, give immunizations as well as perform various other tasks.
My job shadowing experience went very well. I went to Monroe County and did my job shadow at Promedica Hospital. I went alone and got introduced to a Nurse named Cindy. I saw her do very cool things as a Nurse. She often refferred to a paper with the patients history of problems and she grabbed things they needed for tests for the patients well-being.
I spent most of the time observing my mentor while she performed check-ups on her patients. Also, I saw my mentor give injections to patients to help with pain. I researched the roles and contributions of a physician assistant in the medical field. I did not realize how much physician assistants could do until I researched it. Also, the contributions that physician assistants make go unnoticed by many, they are trained to be just as proficient as physicians.
