Mentorship is the key to a nurses path of success. Black states that “ A mentor serves as a role model but also actively teaches, encourages and critiques the process of growth and change in the learner” ( 2014, p.329). Nurses are seen as teachers they pass on their skills and experience to others which allows one to take in that knowledge and apply it where it is needed such as a clinical setting. What led me to choose this scenario was based on the students lack of experience in an area and how the mentor which was the clinical instructor stepped in to help and show the student the way through effective communication and mentorship . “Leadership in nursing is about integrating a professional’s values, communication skills, and nursing

Yes, I want to learn more about audiology now that I got to know you as a patient an as a service provider for my child. I think what you do is hard, and being the only audiologist trying to get your voice heard must be as hard as what we are suffering now in the system.
I really enjoyed reading your post. When I was trying to decided what I wanted to go to school for I also wanted to be a trauma nurse, but I realized that was not my calling. I originally was going to school for radiology but after a semester I changed my major to criminal justice. I wanted a career that would provide excitement and something different everyday, but also allow me to help others. I wish you the best of luck toward either a trauma nurse or anesthetist, they will both take a lot of work to achieve, but in the end will be so rewarding knowing how many people you are
Feelings When the nurse informed me she’s about to do a postpartum assessment I was eager to witness it because I have never got the opportunity to witness it in reality, I only got the chance to practice it in sim lab. Overall I think the nurse did a fair job on performing the postpartum assessment, the reason being compare to what I have learn in sim lab she did not cover half of these things. I have also noticed while the nurse was doing the postpartum assessment the client was tense therefore, I comforted her throughout the procedure. This could have been avoided if the nurse explained to the client at first what the procedure entails
Evolution from Novice to a Beginning Professional Nurse Looking back when I started my nursing school, I can proudly say that I have evolved both physically and psychologically. I was not sure if nursing was the right choice for me at first because I had difficulties interacting with people outside my family circle. The first semester was challenging for me because I did not know how to interact with my class mates and felt isolated each time there is a class activity. I joined a study group later that semester and it has been an excitement ever since. Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress.
At the beginning of her nursing career, Shalof (2005) expressed her feelings of inadequacy in critical thinking, intuition, and courage (p. 72) but did not open up to others. However, as time progressed and Shalof (2005) became a more experienced nurse, she had the courage to ask for a change in assignment when she felt she was too emotionally involved (p. 106).

“As new nurses graduate from school and enter the health care industry they encounter many barriers that distract them from caring for their patients” (Johnstone & Mohsen, 2013). With limited experience they are ill equipped to prevent ethical distress when confronted with ethical dilemmas. “They need ethical knowledge to conduct their appropriate function to manage situations and to give safe and proper legal and ethical care in today 's changing world” (Mohammadi, 2013). Ethics and Nursing Ethics Ethics is simply defined as “the study of good conduct, character and motives, it is also concerned with determining what is good or valuable for all people” (Bouchal & Ecker, 2014). It involves choices and judgements about what to do or what not to do.
By doing so it affected her personal belief she could have been cared for better, and also they failed to communicate and inform the family thus inflicting pain in them for years. They only thing they wanted was answers. It is what shapes views and ways of learning. Therefore, communication plays an important role in how culture is learned and passed on. As nurses, communication is key in having a successful interaction with patients.
The older nurses would be able to pass down their knowledge and tips to the young nurses, allowing them to obtain years of knowledge/experiences just by learning from the older nurses. Although this may be a positive, there is worry that not enough young students/nurses will enter the field and create a shortage. Savor discusses this prediction saying, “As the demand for healthcare keeps growing, we’re going to need Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in huge numbers” (2017). An increase in the need for NP could lead to a decrease in registered nurse. This is due to either a registered nurse continuing with their education to become a NP or less people entering nursing school because they are worried that their will be no jobs for a registered
