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
Caring in the nursing practice provides the presence of a touch, listening, spiritual caring, relieving pain, and a support system. Jean Watson 's Human Science and Human Care Theory includes transpersonal caring and relationships (a moral idea), carative factors (what to do), carative process (how to do), and the human care paradigm (Hood, 2018). These tools are necessary to use in a nurse’s daily life. Watson’s theory focuses on caring as the moral ideal of nursing and helping a person understand meaning in sickness, pain, and existence. The theory incorporates human caring with healing and life-learning steps of human caring (Sitzman, 2017).
I am passionate about advocacy. As a nurse and officer, I must often advocate for my patients and the soldiers who serve under my leadership because I recognize keeping them at the center will improve overall outcomes, satisfaction and morale. Despite the challenges and push back I may encounter as an advocate, it is my responsibility to the patient and soldier. The competencies acquired with this specialty will mature my advocacy. Additionally, I will be

The second key aspect related to expertise,the nurses must have technical skills in order to provide effective and safe care. The third aspect mentioned that nurses must have communicative capabilities. The nurses serve as spokespersons for patients who are often in vulnerable positions.

Effective Communication Fosters Positive Working Relationships The quality of relationships between nurses and other team members greatly influences delegation success and overall teamwork. A productive team is one that has timely ongoing communication, a willingness to collaborate, and initiative. The following are important points to consider regarding the registered nurse 's role in improving communication and relationships within a team nursing model: As the RN, you must clearly define expectations for UAP and LPNs on reporting the completion of tasks. Remember, the patient is ultimately under your care. While you are able to delegate tasks, it 's still your responsibility to see that each task was carried out effectively and safely.
Before learning the side effects, issues, and dangers of the use of electronic cigarettes, I was under the impression that they weren’t harmful. I believed they were the safer option and if you weren’t doing it frequently or if it didn’t contain nicotine, then there was no issue in doing it. E- Cigarettes are marketed as a way of kicking an addiction to actual cigarettes, but anything inhaled into your lungs is not benefiting your personal health. But before, I did not know this and wasn’t necessarily against them. Truthfully, people in my close family use them and I thought it was a great way of ending a conventional cigarette addiction, and this made me wonder how bad they could possibly be.
Nurses need to see their roles as holistic and expand their view of nursing. We must learn other new skills that are considered integral to contemporary nurse practice. Nurses must be multi-disciplinary. The skills they need to acquire include emergency care, illness assessment, psycho-social nursing, counselling, behavioural science, health promotion, statistical analysis, advocacy, presentation skills, political activity and knowledge, marketing, publicity, family intervention and community needs assessment. Today, nurses should see themselves as prime movers for change.
Nursing takes on a nurturing role.3Nurses use this form of communication as a technique to provide support and information to patients. It is often the nurse 's job to make sure the patient feels comforted and cared for. Apart of showing a patient that you care involves sharing humor, which promotes active communication. 4 Contributes to feelings of togetherness, closeness, and friendliness. Feeling close to someone is an incredible sensation since nurses visit several patients a day so, that promotes patient value.
It guides our thought processes and focuses on the specific areas to bring the patient back to a certain point where he or she can have a quality life. It gives us a lot of direction, and it builds basic structures to promote the greatest quality of nursing care in any individuals. Nurses are not just doing actions, they critically thinking about particular patients’ needs and applying certain theories and ideas
NU 413 Week 9 Discussion Board Post student response to Katie-Lynn Fournier by Kathryn Moultrie Good afternoon Kathie, Enjoyed reading your post, and seeing how other organizations handle the operations of their facility and nursing departments. My biggest concern with improving quality care and patient safety issues in that, the responsibility is not ours alone, our Chief Nurse Executives (CNEs) and Director of Nursing (DON), and senior nursing management staffs to lead the journey Disch J. (2008). I find it overwhelming that the majority of the research literature (studies, surveys and reports believe nursing plays the pivotal role in changing the face of health care and improving quality care and patient safety.
I also notice that I tend to repeat after the patient answer to my question. Although doing so might help me keep the fact straight as well as letting the patient know that I was actively listening, I felt that it’s a little overkill as this might cause me to lose time for the interview. Thus, this could be the reason that I couldn’t finish my interview. As I summarized the information I got from the patient, I realized that I missed out some of the information and went a little fast toward the end after the announcement of two minutes left for the interview. I should have learned to put my distraction aside and focus on the interview to make sure I have the correct information from the patient.
Nurse executives and nurse managers have received additional training from various outside sources. This technique has proven to be very successful with the retention of the nursing staff, as it allows organizational campaigns to educate their staff about how to communicate in social
According to Gardner, for collaboration to be effective, factors such as “status, organizational values, collaborating participants, and type of problem” (2005) must be considered. Therefore, collaborating with the parties involves attending to each side, deliberating on areas of agreement and identifying their goals, and making sure that all parties understand and respect one another. As a nurse, collaborating with our patients to make sure that they agree with the plan of care is also important. Collaboration involves thinking creatively to resolve the problem without argumentation. When all contextual elements are considered, collaboration can provide good communication among the healthcare team to help provide an excellent quality patient-centered
SSW 197 Assignment #2 Kirstin Cain 9000736 The skills I learned within the classroom that I utilized during my practicum were active listening, active listening and active listening, reflection and having empathy. I also used some paraphrasing and summarizing, particularly when a client was disclosing some previous trauma that he believed to have occurred during his childhood (the psychiatrist was uncertain as to whether these were actual events or delusions). I had the opportunity to do role play with an individual wanting to practice making phone calls inquiring about apartments for rent. I used sessional contracting with this individual, did perception checks and had him score his anxiety at various points throughout the role play.
