A healthcare administrator must use good judgment. They must be able to adjust their behavior to each situation, but must understand that conflicts will occur between different expectations in the code of ethics. Other expected behavior for a healthcare administrator is that one shouldn 't misrepresent one’s qualifications and shouldn’t misrepresent facts when communicating with other professionals during business activities. Overall, one’s behavior must set them apart from the others and their actions must show that they believe in a code of ethics and are a true representative of this profession (Bianca, 2017).
As an integral part of the healthcare team, nursing has evolved tremendously. In Nurse of the Future Nursing Core Competencies a picture was painted of what the future of nursing looks like. From my own opinion I do feel that a reform or evolution in nursing education is required to create competent nurses of the future. Current nursing school programs are academic heavy with an emphasis on skills. While growing competency in clinical skills is necessary, there is much more to the future of nursing than being highly skilled. It is time to distinguish not just skills, but characteristics of a successful nurse of the future. This is a nurse who will be well rounded with the tools and resources to help guide healthcare and the patient experience
At the simplest level professionalism with patients comes down to expectations, intentions and perceptions. Patient expectations are preconceived ideas of how they feel they should be treated when in the healthcare setting. When nurses have clear, purposeful intentions that meet those expectations this result in high patient satisfaction. Consequently, the patient leaves the facility perceiving that they have been cared for professionally. When you act professional you communicate that you have assumed the professional helping role, you are clinically skilled, and your focus is on the patient. (Potter, Perry, Stockert, Hall 2015 Pg. ) In addition, you can demonstrate professionalism with patients in the way you carry yourself and how you represent yourself with your appearance and attitude. Speaking in a clear, concise manner, not using slang words or terms of endearment and tailoring your approach to generation and culture are all examples of professionalism with patients. Keeping in mind that a patient 's acceptance of you as a professional often depends on the manner in which you convey a professional and caring image.

It means dressing appropriately according to your profession and arriving in a timely manner before your shift begins; as well as leaving after your shift has ended, not early. Professionalism means not gossiping in the workplace

The Children’s Home of Reading-Acute Partial Hospitalization Program helped shape my perspective of professionalism thru constant reestablishments of what to expect when in an alternative hospitalization or residential treatment program. I was able to learn that the children who attend these types of facilities required much more attention. They also, require the redirection of skills that have never been taught to them before. At my internship site, an issue that is related to professionalism is that sometimes some staff members will have the intern complete miscellaneous task that has nothing to do with what they are primarily there for.
