I believe that the nurse leader ought to first have the nursing expertise and be able to utilize interpersonal skills to influence and empower the other nurses to deliver quality nursing care. Importantly, I would only consider nursing leadership effective when the leader is directly and actively involved in clinical care provision as that provides opportunities to improve care provision by influencing the nurses that one is leading. Notably, improvements would not be guaranteed if nursing leadership is restricted to management as leadership is founded on the strength of the opinions that the leaders raise, which I believe applies to nursing profession.

Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses.

The ability to “Demonstrate leadership in the synthesis, utilization and evaluation of all interdisciplinary information to promote quality improvement in a health care environment” is vital when interacting with executive leadership.

Philosophy of Nursing In regards to my own individual values, working at the institution of Lawrence General Hospital has aided in my beliefs and values. This is because the hospital has a similar set of ideas as myself. Quality care is huge, especially within a healthcare setting, everyone should try to attain their best work in order to promote the absolute best possible patient outcomes.

However, leadership and management have different traits. When considering the two categories, the former is more relevant to the current health care environment that requires the remodeling of the health care system in order to respond well to the current health care challenges.
