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
7.1 Personal context Strategic planning is a vital planning process that is of great value to the organization or healthcare facility. Strategic planning enables nurse managers to have visions which are made into goals. Strategic planning shows how the nurses
Cultural Diversity and its Influence on Nursing Practice The nursing profession has a long history of assessing and placing the needs of patients first when giving care. The tenets of nursing practice include providing individualized care by collaborating with the patient, family, and health care team members when planning nursing care (American Nurses Association, 2010). The concept of transcultural nursing aligns with these tenets because it calls on nurses to use them to provide care to people with differing backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures. In this paper, I will identify the factors that made it necessary to develop the transcultural nursing theory, describe the meaning of diversity and its relationship to the field of nursing, and
Beneficence is the core principle that refers to the act of ‘doing good’ and advocating for the patient. All nurses should take positive actions to help their patients and to have the desire to do good. On the other hand, nonmaleficence is the core of the nursing ethics and it revolves around the idea that nurses have to remain competent in their field as to avoid causing injury or harm to patients. Nonmaleficence also requires all health care professionals to report any suspected abuse. The last ethical principle is justice.
I will be discussing how the care in David story was dehumanized by using the humanizing framework. “Ashely has a learning difficulty “This is lack of capacity because Ashely can’t speak properly and do not have much of understanding but however he has the right to make decision and choices. Ashely was treated horribly in the hospital; the care professional wasn’t communicating with the parents or Ashely. The experience of a patient’s loved ones such as friends, family etc. Are also important because they play an important part in the patient own well- being.
Both terms are powerful terms and these terms explain the mental processes nurses use to make certain that they are doing their most excellent thinking and decision making for their patient’s better outcomes. Nursing practice requires both critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Critical thinking is the process of deliberate higher level thinking to define a patient’s problem, examine the evidence-based practice in caring for the patient’s, and make options in the delivery of optimal care. Critical thinking involves the demarcation of statements of fact, judgment, and opinion. The progression of critical thinking requires the nurse to think imaginatively, use reflection, and engage in logical thinking (Alfaro-LeFevre, 2013).
Beginning with Florence Nightingale, who evaluated the quality of nursing care based on patient outcomes. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) was established by ANA so they can evaluate patient outcomes. They continually collect and build on data obtained to further develop nursing knowledge, and have developed models
Most of the hospital can be seen in scrubs and this has caused a different reverence to nurses. It is harder to distinguish who the nurse is unless it is verbalized. It can also be seen how academics and more rigid protocol has changed nursing. Nurses need to remember that a compassionate and empathetic heart is the main cause for the patient’s appreciation of the nurse. Looking back to previous eras, today’s nurse can realize how there was much less distraction of paperwork and protocol resulting in more emphasis on the patient’s heart.
I have realized from the diagnostic test that my personal insight toward my self-values in all the three disciplines are not satisfactory. In personal legacy discipline, it has shown me that i don’t have a clear idea about what I want my legacy to be. I need to focus in how I can be the best model for my co - workers through my actions and beliefs. For example, in the hospital it is not enough to provide patient care for patients, but if the nurse provides respect for patient’s integrity and privacy, she would be a good example for new staff in maintaining ethical environment while doing patient care. In Mindfulness disciple, “all four questions probing on self-awareness about your values and the values you live at work”
One person might agree that nursing teamwork is the foundation of a medical setting, while another person might say that nursing teamwork is a waste of time and working alone is the best experience. Both negative and positive concepts of nursing teamwork have been experienced by me in different medical and nursing settings. I later realized that having no teamwork makes every step difficult for you and for others. Teamwork with strategies such as proper communication, respect for others, and cooperation can benefit the whole medical and nursing community. Therefore, nursing teamwork is imperative to help manage the patient’s needs and fulfill our nursing duties to bring no harm to
