To be an effective nurse leader means encouraging and enabling other people to act and use the power and skills they have. In my opinion, effective nurse leaders are those who involve every member of the health care team and recognise collaboration and provide choices and support the decisions of others. They are active listeners and foster collaborative relationships in order to build leadership. They are empowering others, rather than taking control and building a trustful environment where everyone contributes actively and feel valued by the healthcare
This can be very challenging to deal with for both the nurse and family members (Copstead & Banasik, 2010). These behavioral changes should be addressed by providing a significant amount of relaxing and therapeutic activities to help cope with anxiety and tension. The nurse should make the patients environments as quiet and relaxing as possible while constantly orienting the patience back to reality with continued references to the present time, date, season and personal memorabilia. Personal photo should be label in order to refresh the patient’s memory. When interacting with the patient the nurse should always introduce themselves and make eye contact.
This exemplified the need for patient’s autonomy, beneficence versus non-maleficence and truth telling. The nurse faced a barrier due to the physician hierarchical working style. Collaborating using a multi-disciplinary approach and communicating effectively in explaining the disease process could have better manage her symptoms and improve the quality of her remaining life. It is important that early detection and treatment options are discussed by the physicians in an honest and open manner. As patients performance status decline healthcare members should provide informed decisions regarding diagnosis, prognosis and
(McMartin, 2013). The nurse involved in this article did not demonstrate effective planning of Ian’s discharge. As the role of the RN is important in planning the discharge, she could have done certain things differently to accommodate Ian and Judi. One aspect would be improving the comprehension of discharge instructions. By explaining medications and making sure they understood when and why he has to take them, as for the unhealed wounds setting up a discharge plan for community nurses to come see him and to teach Judi how to redress and look for signs of infection could benefit them as this could be a long term
Charge nurses have a lot of responsible. Charge nurse must be a role model the way with professionalism and dedicated and set an example for others to follow. Ensure all assignments are completed and covered based on a patient’s need. Task are delegated effectively and the care is supervised.

Every nursing duty hinges on this one, simple aspect. To effectively meet a patient’s needs, it becomes essential that the nurse understand in part, who the patient is. Diversity encompasses many elements that integrate to make each patient unique. Patient-centered nursing takes into account patient background, and past experiences as well as desires, beliefs, motivations, personality, culture, religion, and family life. The better the nurse knows and understands the patient, the better prepared she/he will be when developing a plan of care, and the better the patient will respond to nursing interventions.
Watching the actual procedures being done and realizing the the importance of individual as well as the collaborative effort between the team of professionals that goes in to achieving the desired outcome, to say the least, is inspiring. Positive clinical observation such as my time at the post-anesthesia care unit greatly influences the course I am taking with my nursing path. Indeed, this clinical observation not only showed the importance of being able to work autonomously for patient advocacy, but also taught me the importance of being able to work as a part of a health care team in delivering the best possible patient care. Each nurse in that unit displayed full grasp of the process and showed a deep level of expertise in addition to their commitment to providing care. Therefore, nurses should have the full grasp of the process and acquired the necessary knowledge needed to perform at such a level.
In contrast, if working with other healthcare providers become difficult, the quality of patient care, health promotion, and established teamwork strategies will become difficult to implement. Therefore, nursing teamwork with other health-care professionals is essential in the transition of patient care. Personally, teamwork is sometimes difficult to attain, especially if the team lacks professional and personal respect for others. For example, one time I had an upcoming nurse disrespectfully inform me that my physical assessments needed work. Despite my new nursing graduate status, those comments had a great impact on my professional growth as a nurse.
She looks out for her nursing staff and always trying to help them in any way. She believes in participatory leadership and involves staff nurses at every level in the decision-making process. Nurses have commented that they feel open to be creative in problem solving and that administrative support is there backing them up, but not overwhelming them. I admire and respect Patricia Johnson as a nurse leader because she demonstrates many great qualities all nurse leaders should have. She inspires me to become a great nurse full of knowledge and passion for providing the best possible care to others in need.
