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
In an aesthetic and reconstructive ward, we see patients coming in for aesthetic surgery. Unlike most of the patients they would prefer non-disclosure of condition to their relatives. The APN also should not reveal patient’s personal information if it is not related to the medical care. In this case the APN would uphold the confidentiality standard by not revealing the condition without the consent of the patient. Justice –With APN in a ward it is unlikely for an APN to see to only one patient.
Becoming A Professional Jordan A Oxford Chamberlain College of Nursing Professor Borror NR: 452 Capstone January 2018 Becoming A Professional Nursing school teaches you the foundational knowledge needed to practice as a nurse, but the transition from nursing student to professional nurse is where you learn ‘how’ to be a nurse. Making this transition is time consuming and full of emotional ups and downs as applications are filled out, interviews are completed, state licensures are applied for, and boards are taken. Although the process is often similar for each nursing student, the specific steps taken, and the emotions experienced are particular to each person. The biggest thing to remind ourselves of through everything is the reason we started,
In the hospital the nurses are at the fore front of coordination and can easily classify the workers into the various teams that suit them. The various departments in the hospital have to work together in harmony to be able to meet the patient’s needs, making sure all resources are put in place for effective care of the patients and functioning of the hospital. Health care team members include the nurses, doctors, dietician, laboratory scientists, radiographers etc. all these personnel have to work together harmoniously in order to provide an effective care. Communication is a core aspect of coordination, lack of communication between the team members can lead to disjointed work and uncoordinated ideas, as each person goes to act separately without communicating with other team members to get their
I am currently completing my certified nurse program to proceed with a job as a patient care technician. I believe a job as a certified nurse assistant will give me a better insight while working beside nurses and observe what set of skills nurses use. My strengths that best suit my personality and this program are determination, effort, caring, critical thinker, discipline, and enthusiastic. These qualities would reflect on a nurse and would make caring for the patient easier. I believe that I belong in the nursing field, because ever since I was a child, I always wanted to make a positive influence in people's lives.
Orientation for the nurse includes web-based learning activities, simulation labs, code blue drills, massive transfusion protocol drills along with hands-on experience. The Novice Nurse is usually assigned two preceptors. The preceptors are responsible for ensuring the nurse successfully completes orientation (Ellis 30). Learning never stops as each patient presents the opportunity for the nurse to learn something new. In learning to be an ER Nurse, there is the possibility of more training to build up development in an emergency room setting.
According to the AARP article on the future of nursing; transforming health care, Susan Reinhard and Susan Hassmiller, wrote that for both now and future needs, registered professional nurses and other health professionals must be allowed to practice to the full level of their education and training. They suggested that advanced practice registered professional nurses (APRNs); such as nurse practitioners and midwives can be used to use to solve issues of primary care shortage so that the physicians may be free to take care of more complex medical issues that requires higher medical expertise. Another report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development working paper in 2010, says that many countries are reviewing better ways to improve the health delivery system by reviewing the roles of nurses and other health care professionals. According to the conclusion of that report, developing new and more advanced roles for nurses might improve access to care and may even cut down cost. (AARP
They need to learn the various pieces and functions of communication in diverse areas of nursing. According to Garrett (2016), to maintain patient safety communication should be consistent, comprehensive, transparent, concise, and appropriate, consequently, leading to interacting and connecting with patients who demonstrated to improve results, reduce costs, and improve the patient’s understanding. A study conducted by Daly (2017), states that they are four themes nurses should utilize in their daily practice: 1. Prioritise people, 2. Practise effectively, 3.
Through effective engagement with the patient it can instil a sense of connection and in turn the patient will actively participate throughout the interview. Effectively engaging is ultimately the foundation for motivational interviewing. In order for patients to feel connected and comfortable, nurses must be open minded, compassionate as well as providing reassurance in order to create relaxed environment for patients to voice both positive and negative feelings in relation to behavioural change (Resnicow, K & Blackburn. D
Scholarly Reflection Assignment Undoubtedly, the transition from a senior nursing student to a graduate nurse can be challenging. Graduate nurses often experience a complex but relatively predictable array of emotional, intellectual, physical, sociocultural, and developmental issues, especially during the initial phase of employment (College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta, 2013). I have always had a keen interest in pediatric nursing and was fortunate enough to practice in the pediatric surgical setting at the Stollery Children 's Hospital for my final preceptorship. I identified learning and implementing family-centered care (FCC) as an ongoing goal at the beginning of the preceptorship due to my insufficient amount of knowledge
Possessing these admirable traits needed to be a nurse fit perfectly with the Peace Core’s values. Nursing in the Peace Corps will allow me to educate and aid people all over the world. Not only will the experience benefit those I provide care for, but also teach me how to live a life of generosity. Professional Registered Nurses in the Peace Corps spread health awareness all over the globe, from organizing health care systems to disease prevention. Involvement in a program of this capacity would fulfill my ambition to grow and develop throughout my nursing
Laura’s death affected many, causing people to feel obligated to stop it from happening to anyone else. While many think Laura’s law is not ethical due to forcing mentally ill to take medication or get help against their will, it is meant to improve the quality of their own lives, and the lives of those around them in the long run. People with mental illness would refuse to get the help they
(2008). I would like to challenges Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) to lead the journey and highlights how patients, their families, and health care organizations would benefit immeasurably if CNEs stepped forward and accepted this leadership role, then and only then can the best practice changes begin to improve what we as nurses already know. The processes of leading are intended to enable more people to develop into leaders and more people to share the roles of leading, to enhance the quality and safety of patient care (Stone P. Hughes R, Dailey M.
