Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses. Thus, it is essential that a nurse leader is consistent and knowledgeable on ways to facilitate the development of nursing practice environments that enable nurses to deliver quality nursing care. For such an environment to be met, it is my belief that I will not only be required to advocate quality care but also need to communicate articulately, be a mentor, a visionary, a mentor and a role
Nurses can use the values such as “Maintaining Privacy and Confidentiality” as a guide in how to keep a professional relationship with their present or future clients. As part of the ethical responsibility of ensuring patient confidentiality, it is important for the nurse to be aware of who are authorized to have access to their health records. Prior to nurses being able to go work in a public health space, they are taught the policies that must
The teamwork and collaboration component of the QSEN competencies emphasizes how vital it is for nurses to work together, in effort of improving patient quality care. As nurses it is important to establish clear communication skills with one another. For example, the nurse working in the day time is required to report to the nurse working in the evening, about the patients health. This system helps nurses maintain awareness of patient quality care. Once teamwork is established through proper communication, nurses are able to collaborate and share ideas with one another about patients health.
This framework is a useful standard against which the professional behavior of a nursing practitioner must be measured. The Nursing Staff Supervisor (NSS) can refer to this standard (or standards of ethical behaviors) when resolving ethical issues in nursing practice. In situations wherein the ethical issues are so complicated to be resolved at the hospital level, the ANA may be able to step it within a pre-defined parameter, to extend their institutional ethical expertise to help resolve the ethical issue involved (Wood, 2014). Nursing associations oftentimes have a dedicated ethics committee who are comprised of ethics experts over issues relevant to, or uniquely encountered only in, the nursing practice.
In case of a nurse dealing with his/her family members or relatives, the care needs to be transferred to another nurse
THE ROLE OF THE NURSE Nursing is a health care professionalism that focuses on any individuals for example for children, adults, disabled person and those who have other religion or other culture.

Justice is justice, the principle of justice, this is the basis of nursing actions for a nurse to do justice in each patient, meaning that every patient is entitled to the same action. The principle of Justice is needed to terpai the same and fair towards others who uphold moral principles, legal and humanitarian.

With this in mind, the Registered Nurse is responsible for maintaining their own professional conduct and competencies, allowing them to continually practice as a licensed practitioner (QLD Health GREEN). As a specialty, the same bodies govern Pediatric Nurses, however, to maintain a professional relationship with the families of the patients, this at times can be a challenge due to the wide array of social, economic and cultural differences. However the key component of this position is to maintain a good relationship with anyone that requires treatment. With this in mind APRHA’s code of professional conduct 1:1 states that Registered Nurses are required to maintain and improve there education, task orientation and assertiveness in relation to clinical practice, while developing skills in management and the research setting. Additionally it is anticipated that Evidence Based practice be a fundamental key of the code of professional
Professional practice reflects autonomy when the nurse respects patient’s rights to make decisions about their health care” (Taylor, 1997). At the nursing home, I witnessed many of the nurses discuss with the residents what they wanted to do about certain situations. Autonomy honors the fact that it is the patient and the families right to make certain decisions about health care. Nurses also are constantly making sure that they can provide their patients with the best information to help them make a more successful choice about their health care (Taylor
Her theories go hand in hand with the basic concepts of patient-centered care. It’s essential for nurses to have a working understanding of their patients’ belief systems, desires, values, religion, personality, and abilities. Learning about the culture of common patient populations an area assists the nurse in becoming culturally competent. In my own practice, I have found that gathering information, slowing down during communication, focusing on the patient, asking thoughtful questions, and clarifying information assists me when meeting the needs of patients from different cultures.
In this case study the primary nurse, Amelia Wilkerson, is caring for a patient, Katy Palmer who has recently been admitted to the hospital for fatigue and abnormal lab counts. The patient asks Amelia for information regarding her diagnosis. Amelia has seen Katy’s results and knows that she has been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. The ethical dilemma seen in this situation is that it is outside of the scope of practice for Amelia to discuss Katy’s original diagnosis with her.
