I believe it’s important for us to be open and honest with each other, so the preceptorship can be a success. Conflict of personalities with your assigned mentor or preceptor If there is a conflict of personalities with my preceptor, I will have to bring this to the attention of the nurse manager. According to Sliter, Withrow & Jex (2015) personality might predispose some individuals to being hypersensitive to stressors and perception. Also personality might impact individuals’ perceptions of the work environment (p.3). Reassignment to a new preceptor may be necessary to make the learning process
First, workers must model professional behaviors and communication skills to exemplify what is expected on a daily basis in the work place (Heuston and 250). Second, challenging those in training in order to better them in the future is highly important for their professional development as individuals. For example, letting trainees take action in procedures and giving them permission to try their own ideas allows them to make mistakes and grow from them (Heuston and Wolf 250). Prohibiting nurses in training to address a situation themselves and make mistakes inhibits their learning experience and therefor they will never learn. Lastly, nurse leaders must use personal recognition and communication in order to form personal connections to encourage others.
As I advance to my practice, I would like to have a transformational leader who places themselves as equal to their followers and inspires them to achieve higher goals. Transformational leader allows nurses to make their independent decisions and encourages them to improve. Although leadership and management always come together, the two roles are not the same. While leaders focuses on people and relationships, managers concentrates on the task at hand (Cite website). Though I have only met a few nurse managers, I think the best management style for a new nurse is a coaching manager since their focus is the professional development of their followers.
Calling the child care services without a delay may help Lora find the safest place for the time being and avoid returning home to her abusive father. If Lora was my patient I would try to gain her trust by listening, I would attempt to convince her to report the abuse, and I would try to find out what kind of relationship she has with her mother and if calling her would be a right thing to do. If all fails I would report the abuse because protecting my patient would be my priority. In conclusion, sadly child abuse is not that unusual in our society, and I believe that nurses must be educated about recognizing, documenting, and reporting a doubtful child abuse. Nurses face an ethical dilemma on a daily basis, but no matter how hard it is we always have to put our patient safety and well-being
According to Hood and Leddy, ‘‘ The roles of a nurse is client advocate, teachers, an agent of change, coordinator and care giver’’(5). Having a nursing degree can help to bring these changes by teaching and helping to prevent issue from arising. A goal of the nurse is to see these issues prevented and can be a personal achievement
In my interview, sissy explained that the attention she got made her feel validated, her concerns were listened to and she was felt as if she were in good hands (S. Johnson, personal communication, February 5th, 2018). In addition to giving attention, from the patient’s perspective moderation is key. Patients do not want a dominate nor do they want a passive doctor. Most patients want a doctor that is a happy medium. A doctor that is too dominate can be perceived as aggressive and dismissive.
To take care of this situation I would make sure that they know that this still can be their bubble of safe. That For me being their counselor im there to help them solve their problems and overcome their battle of abuse.It could also strain the relationship with the family. For parents they to us as people to help their children and i think that the previous problem could be a problem to. They don't want to expose their child to their abuser, they just want them to come to us their counselors
My insight on nursing school is as if it is a journey. Graduating from nursing school will essentially be the end of said journey, but the accomplishment will not be about me. It will not be about becoming a registered nurse, having a good job, making a decent wage, and/or continuing onto a higher education. It will be about practicing empathy, compassion, patience, and exercising the honor of caring for others. I eagerly await becoming a nursing student to exhibit grit.
Although reflection is an imperative foundation of nursing practice, it is only effective in promoting future clinical practice when the practitioner continually identifies their weaknesses and strengths to support their personal growth. They will also be required to develop this process during their practice to improve outcomes for service users (Johns, 2013). In accordance to the NMC revalidation process (2015) school nurses are required to provide a record of their knowledge and how it promotes their clinical practice. Clinical reflection is identified as a recognised educational tool for this process (Queens Nursing Institute, 2015). This evidence highlights the importance of the the student school nurse’s role in reflecting on this critical
The Uganda Nurse council petitioned the government for having taken away in part their autonomy over regulation of nurses’ practice. Along with this, the council now has it that those newly qualified nurses to undergo compulsory internship which is determined by the level of qualification and the country where the nurse was trained from before they are fully certified to practice. Conclusion Building essential nursing leadership capacity for sustainable community health and development can be achieved through effective planning and involvement of all stakeholders to prioritize health programmes. Nurse leaders on their part need to devote time and resources to advance their career through continued nurse education and provide EBNP, be proactive to realise their full potential in order to contribute to sustainable community health and development. Recommendation/Suggestions The study came up with the following recommendation and suggestions.
When addressing clinical incompetence in the workplace, I feel that it is very important to keep the communication lines open. There is no way to know if the nurse if fully competent or what the nurse needs help understanding without honest communication. I agree that a skills checklist is a great way to evaluate competency (Yoder-Wise, 2015), yet I feel that there are better ways to help the nurse. I think it would be very helpful to evaluate the best way that the nurse that is struggling learns and attempt to be accommodating. Everyone learns in different ways.
The nurse who is attempting to provide respectful, culturally competent care will have to take the extra time, to develop the trust and respect that are so integral to their culture. Knowing that, in many cases, this culture will remain quiet and watchful will certainly make a difference in how the nurse carries herself throughout her patient care, simply as a show of respect. Providing care while being mindful that a different culture is being dealt with may take a bit more time, but as a caregiver, what can convey more caring than a show of respect for one’s
