In this case, it will become easy to acquire a job as moving from one state to the other will become possible. Also, it will improve the quality of services since each of the nurses will have to meet specific requirements of the nursing body. The APRNs will have to get involved in operations that will make them develop their profession by getting involved in care provision in different levels of hospitals (Dahlin, Coyne & Ferrell, 2016). Acquiring experience will be facilitated by the initiative. Therefore, the nurses will have a chance to work all over the country and get involved in taking care of patients with different conditions.
Leadership within the healthcare field is necessary to increase skills, organization, understanding, and control within the workplace (Huber, 2014). The leadership role tends to fall into the hands of one who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, motivating, committed, and adequately communicates to the team (Huber, 2014). With each leader comes strengths and weakness, hence, the reason why self-assessment and reflection on leadership skills are necessary. Over the course of this essay I will perform a variety of self-assessment and reflection tests in order to identify my strengths and weaknesses as a current and future nurse leader. Results To identify my strengths and weaknesses, I took a total of six self-assessment tests; which consisted of
Through analysing her nursing leadership is needed at every level and all setting. In my view of this interview through the strategies applied by Matron Yenny, effective nursing leaders rely on a mixture of styles depending on the situation she have been handle. Matron Yenny added she prefer more democratic leadership and tried to maintain harmony through an affiliative style of her leadership. During our conversation, I can see the democratic leadership in Matron Yenny through her action when she created a system to provide a venue where nurses had more of a voice in patient care and in communication with families. This system that improved communication between nurses and the rotating medical residents, resulting in improving patient care.
If following guidance sett throughout the learning process, reflective practice will become a common tool as part of this career in order to promote professionalism. The weaknesses can be transformed into strengths while performing tasks whether if they are new or not is due to reflective practice; thinking back over experience Is allowing individuals to learn from own mistakes or unwise decision as clinical judgement come through practice. By Improving reflection, a nurse is improving her practice, she is gaining more knowledge from every situation in order to be able to apply in the future in the best interest of the patients and to support a safe environment in healthcare system. Reflection is a conscious ongoing mental process that underpin personal development close related with self-awareness, communications skills, emotional control, confidence and the most important the Patient Care
Furthermore, what works in the context of care should be identified and the context variables implementation. Hence, based on the analysis of LoBiondo-Wood and Haber (2013), conducting periodic EBP training and encouraging mentorship, especially by those nurses who have vast experience in the evidence-based practices should be prioritized. This will ensure EBP and nursing other approaches remain central to the interdisciplinary
Strategic planning for retention of nursing staff using SWOT analysis. Strengths and weaknesses are often internal to organization, while opportunities and threats generally relate to external factors. For this reason, SWOT is sometimes called Internal-External Analysis and the SWOT Matrix is sometimes called an IE Matrix. The first step in SWOT is strength of the organization for retention of nursing staff.To develop a retention strategy is identifying the factors that motivate nurses to stay. Among these are a positive working environment, high standards for quality care, respect for each employee and opportunities for professional growth.Place hires new staff on other units during orientation so they become familiar with how those units function.Additional strategies for boosting morale and keeping nurses on the job include:Recognize great work by demonstrate appreciation for excellent work by recognizing the efforts of outstanding nurses.Administrators always be available and proactive.Administrators should get out of the office and walk the units to observe what’s going on, and to show nurses that supervisors are there for them when needed.Furthermore Reward loyalty and mentoring program by offer monetary incentives for longevity, as well as for experienced nurses who provide mentoring program to new hires.Focus on orientation also important for staff retention by consider extending the length of orientation and personalizing it to meet the individual needs of new
Evidence-based practice will definitely be more likely to thrive in environments where nurses feel they are being supported by both management staff and available resources. When nurses are offered further resources such as hands on training or simulation training that is backed by evidenced based research they can feel more secure and confident in the job they are able to perform during their shift. Nurses can thrive in their work place organization by building onto their basic knowledge and therefor enabling the nurse to climb the clinical ladder. As our book states “continuing to apply learning contributes to ongoing evidence based practice as one uses newer research and theory as a part of one’s practice.” Nurses who take control of their
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.
The guidelines set by the NP’s Core competencies involves educational programs for nurse practitioner and are referred to as essentials behaviors for all NPs (The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner, ([NONPF],2017). As a future NP, this course has echoed the importance to critically examine information given by finding evidence to support and manage care for the individual or the population, which I will apply to my practice. This, in turn, will offer better treatment plan and optimize better patient outcome. Using the differential diagnosis to pinpoint the best possible diagnosis for individuals has helped me to use critical thinking about my patient and to find the appropriate plan of care. Integrating humanities and sciences in nursing is important and allow individuals to enhance their knowledge and critical thinking skills in their nursing practice.
This paper describes the implications of mentorship and it’s impacts in the nursing field. It will discuss how a volunteer can help over come obstacles to help better a program, as well as how this experience has shaped her communication and understanding of a day in the life of a nurse on shift. It will outline the complications and successes of this volunteer, as well as what they have learned from this experience, how it applies to their future career as a nurse, and how it applies to the theme of mentorship throughout the health care field. Mentorship to me is the ability to be a positive, motivational, inspirational and challenging role model for someone, whether you know you may be their role model or not. A mentor is someone who you
