When one considers the traits needed to be a good nurse, and what a core value of nursing would be, a multitude of characteristics are brought forth. Common ideas brought forth are empathy, integrity, respect and communication. However, an often overlooked but nonetheless quintessential attribute of the nursing practice is accountability. In nursing, where the lives of patient’s and their loved ones, and the reputation of one’s own nursing practice are in one’s hands, it is essential to take responsibility for what you do or do not say or do. Being accountable for one’s actions or words can often mean either recovery or deterioration, health or illness, life or death.
In healthcare, nurse-patient communication involves giving out and obtaining information which allows the nurse to know the needs or problems and feelings of the patients. 3.1 Personal concept In order to achieve great outcome of individualized or holistic care of patients, effective communication between the nurses and patients is required. Communication is a vital tool in nursing care. The purpose of nurse-patient communication is to create a nurse-patient therapeutic relationship,
For example, if a nurse administrates a medication to the wrong patient by mistake, the nurse has to be honest and admit the mistake in order to save patient's life. In conclusion, Professionalism is extremely important in the nursing profession in order to maximize Patient's outcomes. Furthermore, nurses’ interactions and relationships with patients are important to ensure that the outcomes are met. Professionalism in nursing profession has basic principles Such as discipline, integrity, teamwork, Appearance, caring, empathy, and honesty.
Davis (2017) defines accountability as being “answerable to oneself and others for one 's own actions.” This means that when a nurse engages in an activity on the job, she/he will be responsible for the outcome and might suffer negative consequences if her/his actions are careless or reflect poor judgement. Accountability provides a motivation for all professionals to perform well. Most people who are passionate about their profession have an internal desire to perform well, but accountability to one’s colleagues and patients provides an important external motivator to perform well. Nursing is unique as a profession because a nurse is in a position of authority and care over patients.
Nursing is a profession that can be challenging nowadays because nurses will be seeing patient or career’s expectation of services that cannot be met with existing resources. As a graduated nurse leader currently working at one of the government hospitals in Malaysia under the Female Medical Ward, the job can be both advantageous and challenging at the same time. Good communication is very important between nurses and their patients as it will lead to a successful outcome of nursing care of each patient. Besides, communication between the nurses has never been more crucial as well.
In order to encompass a good working environment, professionalism is very important. Professionalism is a characteristic of productive workplace. In the profession of nursing, each nurse has to display a certain degree of respect and responsibilities to meet the standard values of caring. Professionalism is critical in health care.
It is essential for nurses to understand and practice moral and ethical principles in their practice for the safe performance and the best patient outcomes. Ethical Dilemma of Value, Beliefs, and Perspectives During my first semester of nursing school, I experienced ethical dilemma. It was our first day in a clinical setting at the Avalon Health Care facility, a comprehensive, Medicare-certified, care facility that includes senior living, rehabilitation therapy, and hospice services. One of my classmates and I were assigned for the preceptorship to the experienced nurse on the rehabilitation floor, where patients receive personalized treatment plans to help them through their illness process.
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
Continuous relationships with the care team, individualising of care and providing care that anticipates the patient’s needs all achieve best care delivery. (Wagner et al 2001). However the course of any chronic disease is determined by personal attributes, social influences and the professional treatment delivered.

I would like to challenges Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) to lead the journey and highlights how patients, their families, and health care organizations would benefit immeasurably if CNEs stepped forward and accepted this leadership role, then and only then can the best practice changes begin to improve what we as nurses already know. The processes of leading are intended to enable more people to develop into leaders and more people to share the roles of leading, to enhance the quality and safety of patient care (Stone P.
