I feel that these results have has a positive influence on my behavior because they have allowed me to explore my inner being on a deeper level. I have identified a few strengths and weaknesses that affect who I am as a leader. By identifying my weaknesses, I can make improvements prior to becoming a nurse. When working in groups I can start to analyze how I work with other and if my weaknesses hinder my ability to assist and lead others. Over time I will be able to analyze how I can work more efficiently as a leader within the hospital and possibly create a positive
A good and efficient leadership in the implementation of diverse nursing roles are seen to have a great impact on addressing concerns and eventually believe in retaining dedicated nurses in their respective units to carry on their noble responsibilities. Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. Good leaders are made, not born. If you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective leader (Jago, 1982). Leadership can be learned and nurtured.
Evidence based is been used widely in nursing practice, which involves integration of a problem solving approach within the framework that concerning care, using the best evidence from research, knowledge and proficiency from clinical together with patients’ beliefs and values. Nursing practice does support EBP as researchers had done many studies that showed improved outcomes when the best evidence is implemented of patient’s care. However, researchers had argued that, there are challenges in attaining and maintaining EBP in nursing practice despite the awareness (Mary, et. al. 2013).
Professional Reflection Due to the high relevance of FCC to pediatric nursing, Stollery Children's Hospital's mission and my personal interest, I decided to conduct some research and prepare myself to become a sufficient graduate nurse who can deliver compassionate, competent, individualized family-centered care to my patients. Some of the professional activities that I have implemented during the preceptorship include: (1) determined my weakness regarding FCC and developed a learning plan with series of learning activities in relation to that, (2) identified the implementation of FCC during the surgery and operative services pathway at the Stollery Children's Hospital by having an operation (OR) follow-through, and (3) connected with the
This term as remembered was taken from an industry practice which measured quality, time and cost. This was also called “best practice benchmarking” which allowed organizations to plan, compare, and adopt best practices. With further development of this concept, nursing has progressed to EBP, which is unique to nursing practice. Educators must look to pedagogies that use constructivist experiential learning, not just in the class room, but as a clinical learning experience. With the changes in healthcare, shortages of nurses, increase in technology educators are now in the position to create a new atmosphere of learning that inspires inquiry and a quest to further develop EBP.
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310 In this course, I learned the different nursing theories and how it has been
Nursing faculty have been charged with providing varying methods of teaching to improve nursing student’s clinical judgement (Kirkman, 2013). In the past, educators believed the way to produce competent nurses was through classroom content and clinical experience alone. Today, it is thought that introducing simulation into the curriculum is a more suitable way of improving critical thinking skills and competency (Aebersold, & Tschannen, 2013). Patricia Jeffries developed a five step framework utilizing high fidelity simulation to provide for interactive learning without the stress and anxiety of practicing on live patients (Aebersold, & Tschannen, 2013). This framework can be incorporated into nursing curricula by identifying the necessary
To make the most of my associate degree I must obtain a position such as Pharmacy Technician to continue to pursue my goal as an RN, with the many opportunities this organization has to offer I feel secure that my journey is on the right path. Helping people is a passion of mine; a career in the healthcare industry fits me ideally. The field is always in demand for qualified and caring individuals who are prepared to put forth their best efforts to help others. A Nursing Assistant is a basic level position that will permit me the chance to help other people, and gain experience within the health care field. There are training programs that will allow me to earn my CNA qualifications as I pursue my career goals.
Professionalism includes standards of knowledge which is theoretical, practical and clinical. Nurses should be able to share their knowledge with colleagues, client and family enhance their skills to improve quality care and health goals. Nurses should be open-minded and have a desire to learn a new skill, not just to show off; one of the episodes, where the nurse doesn’t have any clue of how to start the IV pump clearly, explains how the media depicts nurses as unskilled professionals in their scope of practice. I feel that nurses should use legislation, standards of practice and code of ethics to practice this profession. After the victory signing up the petition, it seems that still uncertainty of the true image of how nurses are described in the media.
Conclusions and implications were formulated with the knowledge that subjects for this study used. This paper provides a description of the education program for nurse practitioners in the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Nursing, widely considered a leader in the discipline. It further reports the results of a study examining the roles and responsibilities of Nurse Practitioners and of the factors that, despite the impediments to progress the practice faces, motivate them to pursue development of their abilities in carrying out their duties and making “a difference.” Nurse Practitioners are proud of being a source of reference for their colleagues and believe strongly professional collaboration while acknowledging and respecting their limitations, by refusing to assume any responsibilities not delegated to nurse practitioners. The conclusions were based on the findings and logically stated. There was a very in-depth research project, particularly for a journal article.
Taking the self assessment helped me to get to know my personality type and based on that personality type it matched me a job. The job it matched me was nursing which was the filled I want to get into. It showed me my strongest part and also it assured me that I am a visual learner. I would not know all this about myself if I did not take the self assessment. I now know that NCCU offers BSN program for nursing.
