I am getting use to navigating through Cerner to get to what I need for my patients. I still need to gain confidence in myself and trust that I know how to perform skills. I love my nurse Abbi and feel she is really good about explaining procedures, policies, how to admit new patients and discharge patients. She is a bit of a control freak so she doesn’t really allow me to do things on my own but I know I can learn the skills when I get hired wherever I go next.

Next, feeling I was always told I think with my heart. I’m a very understanding person and very empathetic to people feeling. Which I know can sometimes can be bad because you have some people who will see this as weakness. This always led me to career choice of being a social worker because I just want to help people that in a bad situation. Over the past couple years I tired changing this trait but as I mature I just see me using this trait
For her, managers and directors should be supportive and encouraging every nurse to further their education, either professional organizations, certification, career ladder or promotion. Authenticity is essential because trust is harder to gain, and other managers and directors can be dishonest and untrue to their profession. Calmness and maturity is an important factor of being authentic. However, managers and directors can utilize authenticity without abusing their power and unnecessarily breaking someone’s position or career. An example of good leader is genuine, values other’s opinion and can greatly influence
Audrey Lorde discusses the importance of speaking up and breaking the silence in ‘The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action,’ a chapter from the ‘Sister Outsider.’ “What is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood” (Lorde 40). Lorde acknowledges the power within the system but doesn’t allow the fear to limit her. “and I begin to recognize a source of power within myself that comes from the knowledge that while it is most desirable not to be afraid, learning to put fear into a perspective gave me more strength” (Lorde 41). The fear we so often face, whether it be from our race, religion, class, status, sexual orientation, gender, age or ability, we need to understand that knowledge is power.

She explained to me how hard it is to find a good job and also it is hard to find a group that would open a position for NPs. I asked “What issues you find as an advanced practice nurse that are interesting” When I asked her what is interesting about your job as NP, she states that she is enjoying teaching patients, seeing a wide range of age and type of patients, the patients care and differential diagnosis and also everyday learning something new. We spoke about the working environment and she was very happy about it and how well and convenient it is. Working hours work load were very manageable for her.

I worked directly with patients diagnosed with various psychiatric illnesses in groups designed to assist in rehabilitation and teaching activities of daily living. In these groups I helped with a wide range of activities such as assisting the patients with stimulating crafts, and encouraging them to participate in exercises and games, and answered questions related to the activities. Continuing my volunteer experience with occupational therapists I worked at Encore, an assisted living and rehabilitation setting. Here I worked with geriatric clients with both neurological and orthopedic impairments. I also spent time volunteering at Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center, Inc. working with an occupational therapist in facilitating Hippotherapy to incorporate equine movement into treatment.
My development of soft skills started with having a sense respect for the position I was in, and for the individuals I came into contact with. Although I think soft skills are natural, the skills can further be nurtured by having confidence in oneself and abilities through hard work. For example, a nurse will come across someone who is facing adversity each day. It is important to be calm, and know the best way to handle the situation. Not only does the nurse need hard knowledge of how to solve the issue, the nurse must also display soft skills which will instill confidence inside the patient.

First of all, I had the opportunity to interview Kim Bartells who’s a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in Michealsen Health Center and learn more about her role as a social work. Before I started interviewing Kim, I asked her if it was alright with her if I recorded the conversation and she said it was fine with it. I started the interview with asking what type of population Michealsen Health Center serves and she told me it was mostly elderly people. Kim works in a “Microlevel intervention involves working with individuals--- separately, in families, or in small groups---to facilitate change in individual behavior or in relationship” (DuBois and Miley 69). This types of individuals she is working with are elderly residents “who utilize long-term care experience a combination of physical or cognitive limitation that require some level of assistance in activities of daily living” (DuBois and Miley 314-315) and their families as well.
A leader that demonstrates all these skills will be able to maintain positive relationships with others and will be a successful leader. To get followers that trust, look up to, and continue to follow is a successful leader. Leadership is a practice that can learned, and not necessarily an inborn skill. It can be developed through self-awareness and self-discovery. I know with myself, when I became a nurse I had to learn to be more assertive and confident, and never thought of my self as a charge nurse.
