It is basically the scientific method of problem solving applied to nursing in order to achieve a maximum level of change towards the expected health outcome. It is grounded in a holistic framework which offers the potentials for advancing nursing practice because it provides a frame of reference, centered around the client and family or community to describe, explain, predict and control the outcomes of clients’ care. It restores nursing to its primary commitment, that is, delivering care to people on a one-to-one basis and thereby eliminating the present tendency to relinquish this overall function to those who are not prepared to fulfill it. Nursing process promotes consumer satisfaction. By making the client the undisputed focus of the endeavor, a nurse brings forth a one-to-one relationship in which the client is an active partner and participant in crucial decision making.
Considering the changes that continue to arise in the healthcare environment, the nursing profession can make a profound contribution if it embraces nursing leadership. Especially to limit failure in care provision, strengthening nursing leadership continues to be fronted as the basis of care provision. Consequently, I view that nursing leadership ought to be central to the nursing professional goals. In this paper, I will reflect on my values and beliefs in nursing leadership and my future expectations from a perspective of a nurse leader in a manner that is consistent to what I would desire in nursing leadership. I believe that progress has been made, but some areas still need to be given more weight.
A person is in need of nursing care when they experience any deficiency of health, in the internal or external environment. Nursing is actively caring for the physical, mental, emotional, and social state of a person, and their perception of their external environment. Personal Philosophy Nursing is the art of holistically caring for a human being. Humans want to be cared for in order to maintain healthiness, but interaction with the environment can change their health status due to many different variables. The act of nursing helps people to achieve this goal comfortably and appropriately.

Role of Nurse Managers In Organizational Climate • Nurse Managers should emphasize management tasks or activities that stimulate motivation in nursing employees. • Nurse Managers should establish a management strategy to support new nurses and involve them in decision making.
For example, the nurses should be patient and carefully to take care disabled clients. There are some change of the roles and responsibilities in nursing. Firstly, the nurses are more professional. Nowadays, the most of the nurses have high educational level such as the bachelor degree or the master degree. Apart from the clinical skills, they study different aspects of knowledge like pharmacology or Chinese medicine.
(Nursing Times). Nursing is gaining influence in all aspect of healthcare practice, therefore it is important for nurses to develop good leadership skills at the early stage of their practice which is the key to all nursing career and nurse managers can become good leaders with effective training and enhancement of their skills in leadership. Most nursing managers are tossed around by their leaders when they themselves are leaders in their capacities. A nursing manager aspiring to become a leader must be committed to excellence and passion for patient’s advocacy, employee’s protection and be a role model, living by example. He or she needs to learn to take control of issues and handle them as a good leader should instead to reporting all issues to the leader in charge.
One podium presentation I found interesting was Nancy Laplante “An Evolving Identity: Self- Reflection on the Image of Nursing”. The purpose of this research was to explore the impact of a professional presentation on participants perceptions of the images of nursing. The research questions asked included: the perception of the nursing image, the public view of nursing impact on how nurses view themselves, how nursing image impacts the recruitment into the nursing profession, and how attitudes and beliefs of the nursing image change based on the presentation. The research design was a qualitative study was a sample size of 43 participants. The data collection method shown positive and negative images as part of the presentation; participants then responded to open ended questions.
The most common place is in professional meetings, typically nursing meetings. Nurses need to participate more in inter professional meetings where they represent the profession.In doing this they could do much to improve the image of nursing with other health care professionals, communicating what nurses can do.Presentations require certain skills, including developing a clear message verbally and non verbally, using effective presentation methods such as power point slides using storytelling during presentations, demonstrating a professional physical appearance like dress, body language, and so on and generally demonstrating competency in delivering presentations. Nurses who want to take an active role in the profession should develop these skills. It is important that nurses acknowledge their credentials when they are listed in programs and
Nursing Theories: The Building Blocks of Nursing Often deemed unimportant or irrelevant in the clinical setting, nursing theory appears to hold little importance to the world of nursing, but in actuality, it can provide a framework for practice and guide the nurse in finding his or her purpose within the profession (Colley, 2003). Parker (2003) describes nursing theory as, “a notion or an idea that explains experience, interprets observation, describes relationships, and projects outcomes” (p.4). Colley (2003) states that a central theme of nursing is caring, and since this concept is subjective, developing theory is imperative in order to provide an accurate assessment of nursing practice. Two theories that attempt to do this are Jean Watson’s
Reflection has been strongly advocated by the English National Board for Nursing & Midwifery (1994), and a wealth of nursing literature over the past decade had been published to improve nursing practice. Reflection is an in-depth consideration of events or situations outside of one-self, solitary, or with critical support. Burnard (1995) argues that, reflection has its roots in experiential learning, as it forms the second stage of the experiential learning cycle. Active reflection gives nurses the confidence in terms of clinical decision making. It can also be a meaning of identifying strengths and weaknesses in practice and enabling nurses to learn from their mistakes.
