Climbing up the ladder to achieve a master degree in nursing will be the first commendable achievement. I firmly believe that an educated and empowered nurse provides the best nursing care at all times. Similarly, I would carry out numerous research projects in the field of nursing to determine the primary causes of common illness. It is indeed prudent to note that achieving all these things requires the support of all the stakeholders in the nursing
A Nurse Practitioner is a higher trained registered nurse that has completed more advanced schooling, and has a minimum of a master 's degree. These type of nurses have a very broad understanding of the medical field, and the services required. They aid and support patients of all different ages, and have a very broad education. Nurse Practitioners are able to diagnose patients, collaborate with other professionals, educate and counsel families, and even prescribe medications. Not only can they do a variety of different tasks, they can also work in many different environments such as Community clinics, health centers, Health departments, Hospitals, Hospice centers, Nurse practitioner offices, Nursing homes, Private offices, walk-in clinics, and many more (healthcommunities.com).
Work environment for RNs and LPNs Registered nurses are trained and skilled in handling emergency cases. As such, they are usually in demand by hospitals where patients with critical conditions are treated. LPNs, on the other hand, generally work in nursing homes or old-age homes. Career opportunities RN: Registered nurses have high demand than LPNs. There are various opportunities for career growth and many options for specializations.
15 The professional organization for NP’s is the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (Nurse Practitioner). Many employers of NP’s like to see that their prospective employers are members of this professional organization. 3 These employers include, hospitals, family or small clinics, nursing homes, home health agencies, and rehabilitation clinics. 6 Since NP’s provide most of the same services as a physician, they are very sought after in the medical field. An NP can be hired in a new position and immediately begin seeing patients.

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.
The nurse has to put all activities of the patient in an orderly and sequential list. All five steps of the nursing process, which is assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementing and evaluation occur simultaneously. The most vital competency in the nursing process is called QSEN (Quality and Safety Education for Nurses), whole process is strongly close. It improves a nurse who has knowledge to perform the critical skill and professional attitude, about the quality and safety of the health care system within their work. QSEN includes: 1) Patient-centered care – involve patient’s respect, dignity, privacy and compassion 2) Teamwork and collaboration – involve all healthcare system such as physician, nurse, therapist, dentist, pharmacist, social worker,
Nursing Theory Ahidjo Nfor Professor: Sabrina Cook Professional Role Transition During graduations and pinning ceremonies, most students recite the Nightingale pledge. Florence Nightingale is consider to be the pillar of modern nursing. She is recognized as one who revolutionized the profession of nursing by defining the practice as it was conceived in her era in opposition to professions such as caregivers and house servants. in her book, Notes on Nursing: What it is, What it is Not, Florence Nightingale pioneered the idea of health and illness, how the environment could affect patient’s health and the difference between nurse’s practice and that of a physician.

Introduction When I first started my nursing career ten years ago, I did not believe that I could have stayed in nursing profession for ten years. As I have been working at different in-patient settings throughout my entire nursing career, I have seen and learned that how much influence can a nurse manager’s leadership have on a ward and ward staff, and how much difference can it make, in terms of patients’ outcome, staff motivation, job satisfaction, and building of ward culture. Like what the formal US President John Kennedy said: “leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” This is particularly true in today’s healthcare environment, which is ever changing, demanding and dynamic (Scully, 2015). I feel blessed that one of my supervisors, Mr Pei, is such an inspiring leader, and here I would like to share that how his leadership style had impacted me positively and what I have learnt from him. Main Body Leadership is defined as the ability to influence a group of people toward the achievement of a vision or set of common goals (Robbins & Judge, 2016, p. 214).
I was lured into the nursing field because of the care nurses have towards their patients, it is more than a job. Also, everyday is a new challenge for a nurse, never knowing what will come in the door next is exciting. Being a nurse means being prepared for anything and everything, helping people, and doing more for people than just your job. The first personal experience I have had with nursing was when I was 12, and my dad needed medical
I am currently working as an LPN rooming patients in an OB/GYN clinic. My job includes taking vitals, updating medical records as necessary, preparing exam rooms for the providers, administering injections and medications per order, and recording signs and symptoms for the providers. I work along side the providers and midwives assisting with procedures. I place OB patients on the non-stress testing machines and educate patients on topics such as breastfeeding, maintaining a healthy pregnancy, etc. Working here, I 've been able to witness many situations that drive me to want to succeed as a doctor, such as being able to assist patients who are in active labor or empowering patients to take better care of their health.
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.

Clinical nurse leaders are trained to look at the big picture of the patient 's care (Rankin 2015). He or she evaluates patient care from admission to home transition, and everything in between. Whether it be care at the bedside with the clinical nurse, collaborating with other colleagues, or taking on a social worker 's perspective, "the use of the clinical nurse leader role can have marked impact on current healthcare" (Rankin 2015).
