However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other
Nurses are determined to accomplish one thing in their career; save and change lives. That being said, nurses must have the determination and drive to do what every it takes to assist their patient. Nurses are naturally determined to make sure that their patients are able to recover and return back to their normal lives. As described in Fundamentals of nursing: The art and science of nursing care, “Autonomy is the right to self-determination. Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997).
By understanding how these factors affect the patient I am able to care for the patient better. Another concept I have learned from the text is how to be an effective communicator within the context of a group. “Clear and appropriate communication is essential for providing effective nursing care and presents a unique challenge to nurses today” (Kearney-Nunnery, 2012, p. 109). I am charge nurse most of my shifts. Knowing how to be an effective communicator can help in having a good working relationship with all colleagues.
According to Julia Wood (2004), “communication is a systemic process in which individuals interact with and through symbols to create and interpret meanings. However, Sheppard (1993) suggests that, in the nurse–patient relationship, communication involves more than the transmission of information; it also involves transmitting feelings, recognizing these feelings and letting the patient know that their feelings have been recognized (M, 1993)”. It is a two way process. The patient conveys their fears and concerns to their nurse and helps them make a correct nursing diagnosis. An excellent communication skill between nurses and patients is essential for the successful outcome of individualized nursing care of each patient.
Using Virginia Henderson’s idea about nursing and how they treat a patient, I believe that each person has basic needs that need to be assessed and met in order to recover. However, unlike Henderson’s theory my philosophy on nursing uses more than just the idea that a patient has basic needs. My philosophy continues and explains that a nurse should use the idea of holistic nursing care when caring for a patient and the nurse should connect a patient's care with the four metaparadigms: person, environment, health, and
Nurses must prioritize and make decisions based on clinical judgment to provide the best outcomes. The nurse carries a heavy responsibility to provide safe, holistic, patient-centered care to every patient in his or her care. The four elements that make up a good nurse cannot be turned off. These qualities are a part of a nurse’s everyday personality. I chose the nursing profession because I have a desire to help and care for people.
They also have to advocate for patient's and support them through their difficult times and with they are improving their health. Professional nurses teach patient's how to manage their health. According to our textbook, The ANA states that “ practice of nursing is based on societies that knows their rights and responsibilities”. In which nurses derive their skill
My philosophy of nursing practice encompasses respect, compassion, candor, honesty, flexibility, privacy, culture, knowledge- teaching and learning which is a continuum. In addition to, technology, communication- active listening and understanding, allotting time, going the extra "mile" humor , protection of self and patients through holistic care. To be a nurse you must have a degree. However, to be a quality and qualified nurse one should be compassionate, knowledgable, and conscientious when interacting with patients. A competent nurse also utilizies empirical knowledge and his or her own nursing philosophy to guide care.
The act of nursing helps people to achieve this goal comfortably and appropriately. Caring for a person through action, relationally, and improving health and is the ultimate role of a nurse. Conclusion Nursing plays an important role in maintaining the health of human beings. This role requires that a person be understanding of human beings individually and as a whole, the environment in which we survive, the meaning of health and how to maintain it, and how to be caring. These concepts have shaped my philosophy, which I will use as a guideline to practice nursing by, and as I advance my knowledge of nursing, I will be able to expand upon
Nursing is a career of service intended to aid people all over the world. A professional nurse will care and advocate for the patient while maintaining trust with the patient. The professional nursing organizations affiliated with these behaviors are the American Nurses’ Association, Florida Students’ Association and National Association of Neonatal Nurses. These associations provide nursing interventions, rules and regulations with the utmost intent in serving the people and their needs to the best of their ability. As a professional nurse, nurses must utilize the correct judgement and competency to perform the procedures required in helping a patient.
When a patient has a lack of knowledge of the care that is being provided, the nurse also has a responsibility to explain the care and why it will help the patient in the process. With educating the patient nurses can help the patient reach their goals to recovery to a better health status. A good nurse is also a leader. A Leader is someone who takes charge of any situation in confidence, and makes good sound decisions on situations that promote good health. Along with being much of all these things the nurse should deliver the highest quality care in order to accomplish great outcomes in patient care.
I want to advocate for the patient and be a voice when it is needed and warrantied. My values and beliefs align with the metaparadigm concepts of nursing and how I plan on practicing after I graduate. Person As a nurse it is my job to treat the person,
Hello, Mary. The goal of beneficence is to protect the well-being of the patients. In nursing, doing good and doing the right thing is the best policy. In our long-term care restraints is not an alternative. Instead of using restraints our facility provides patient care observers to be with the patient to ensure their safety.
