Nurses are determined to accomplish one thing in their career; save and change lives. That being said, nurses must have the determination and drive to do what every it takes to assist their patient. Nurses are naturally determined to make sure that their patients are able to recover and return back to their normal lives. As described in Fundamentals of nursing: The art and science of nursing care, “Autonomy is the right to self-determination. Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997).
People are paid time off for reasons less important than having a baby. Most parents fear the first day they have to leave their baby in a new child care facility.

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.

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

As the nurse lets go, the patient learns to be more autonomous. At the end of my discharge, I ask the mom if she has any further questions or concerns. If the answer is no, I finish by restating my name, highlighting the ED phone number on the paperwork and share my remaining shift hours so that she may call if she has any question. We then say good bye. As you might see from my example, Peplau’s theory is used regularly in the nursing care and interactions that we have with our patients.

After a 12 hour shift, nurses are tired and just wants to give report and go home. According to Horrigan, Lightfoot, Larivière, and Jacklin (2013), working long hours can cause nurse illness and injury, fatigue and safety problems, feelings of burnout, and depression. This causes the nurses to get discouraged from having to say longer than necessary checking the same patients at the end of each shift. The result of this is neglecting to comply with the policy and a failure in the skin assessment sign-off. Using incrementalism as a policy making mode, skin assessment sign-off at shift change can be successful.
