Leaders have an ability to empathise with their colleagues, an effective leader will be followed by staff that feel supported by them. Nurses are now working with more accountability and autonomy, this means there is an increased need for leadership skill among all nursing staff. It is not only required by those in a position of management but also by staff nurses on the ward who have a responsibility to demonstrate leadership skills when dealing with nursing students and healthcare assistant staff (Harris et al, 2006). Leaders create a shared vision among staff and empower them to make their own decisions. Leaders empower other staff converting dutiful sub ordinates into the leaders of the future (Cutis, E et al., 2011).
Shared governance is extremely important when it comes to the profession on nursing. What is shared governance and how does it relate to nurses? “Shared governance is a dynamic process for achieving organizational effectiveness by promoting decision making and accountability for practice through empowerment” (Bednarski, 2009, para. 1). When organizations allow nurses to participate in shared governance, it gives the nurses professional autonomy (Bednarski, 2009). “It empowers nurses to contribute collaboratively to the decision-making process related to nursing practice, practice standards, and procedures” (Bednarski, 2009, para. 1).
I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
Collaborating as a group benefits everyone involved. The patient has better outcomes, the nurses are provided with a plan of care, the case manager understands the needs of the patients, doctors become of aware of the patient’s current health status, and the social worker works on where the patient goes after hospitalization. As nursing trends continue to grow and change, our focus should always remain the same, which is centered around our patient. Technology will continue to improve, nurses will have easier access to education, and patient care will be provided by collaborative nursing.

IHI Certificates and FEMA Certificate- Current and Future Practices The IHI and FEMA Disaster Management certificates I completed was, shared decision making, quality in health care and introduction to the incident command system for healthcare/hospitals.

Key attributes that help in identifying qualities and characteristics of a professional nurse are knowledge, spirit of inquiry, accountability, autonomy, advocacy, collaboration and ethical values. Advocacy is the ability to comprehend the client’s perspective, educating them on the key areas surrounding their treatment and being knowledgeable of policies that will impact delivery of quality healthcare. Innovation requires fostering a culture that enhances client/family understanding of different outcomes, and showing initiative in new actionable ideas that will better treatment provided.

Nursing Delegation for the RN Delegation is considered to be among the most involved nursing skills which require a nurse to apply knowledgeable clinical judgment and accountability during patient care. RNs have an obligation to finding what is needed for patients and families and then using the appropriate delegation to staff to help carry out the plan. This helps maximize on achieving the most desired outcomes and also maximize the use of available resources. The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.
In order for the future of health care to change, changes must begin at the top with stakeholders, the hierarchy and nursing management, nurses as leaders within their organizations. According to Disch J. (2008), nurses as leaders within their organizations need to also step forward, CNEs have the background, perspective, and platform to help their organizations seriously tackle safety issues that jeopardize patient care and that face nurses and their colleagues daily, and are the essential building blocks of all health systems--and
This leads to a process of actions and reaction resulting in an interaction. An interaction is the goal directed portion of relationship built upon perception and communication. This leads to a transition, which is when mutually valued, as goals are achieved. Building a nurse-patient relationship with good communication is the key to mutually work towards an attainable goal to improve the patient 's’ health and quality of life.
“Concept clarification is an important step in developing useful and useable knowledge in nursing science.” (Tofthagen, 2010).
