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
All frameworks within midwifery contain and express the importance of partnership when working with women, whanau, colleagues and other health professionals. Most importantly though is that the partnership between a woman and midwife is women-centred. One important aspect is that of Turanga Kaupapa. Turanga Kaupapa is a guideline of values pertinent to Maori culture and is a valuable resource for midwives when working with Tangata whenua. The guidelines of Turanga Kaupapa are complementary to the ethical statements and standards of practice (New Zealand College of Midwives, 2015b, p.2).
Discussion Post NURS 6531 Week One Nurse Practitioner Competencies Quality As we further our education to become advanced practice nurses (APNs), it is crucial that we understand the behaviors or core competencies expected of all APNs. For the purpose of this discussion, I will evaluate the core competency of quality and how I will integrate this behavior into my daily practice. The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (2014), outlines the quality competency as continued improvement of practice through the use of the best evidence, evaluation of the influence of safety, access, cost, and quality of health care.

Nurses must prioritize and make decisions based on clinical judgment to provide the best outcomes. The nurse carries a heavy responsibility to provide safe, holistic, patient-centered care to every patient in his or her care. The four elements that make up a good nurse cannot be turned off. These qualities are a part of a nurse’s everyday personality. I chose the nursing profession because I have a desire to help and care for people.
It is of the utmost importance for the nurse to take all the competencies into consideration while caring for a patient, but the most important competency for a palliative care nurse is systems thinking. I believe the need for this capability supersedes the others, as according to Matzo & Sherman (2015) it is through this competency that the nurse is able to apply the knowledge they possess and it in turn offer the patient an improved quality of life as they are undergoing palliative care. This allows for the nurse to have the capability to provide the patient with the care they require. This capability enables the nurse to be competent and recognize the patient’s needs and tailor a specific care plan unique to the specific needs of the patient.
Patient’s previous experiences had influenced their level of empowerment in decision making. Patient’s who had exposed to encouragement from nurses to actively participate in decision making, felt they were given the rights, and their voice was heard. The concept of patient empowerment in nursing is important as nurses are responsible in planning for discharge preparations for patient (Weiss et al. 2007).

Voutilainen et al, 2004 believes that quality nursing documentation promotes structured, dependable and effective communication between caregivers and will facilitate continuity and individuality of care and safety towards patients. One believes documentation is a useful tool in addressing what happens in the nursing process and what decision making is based on presenting information from admission, nursing diagnosis, interventions and the evaluation process resulting in the outcome.
