I believe that the nurse leader ought to first have the nursing expertise and be able to utilize interpersonal skills to influence and empower the other nurses to deliver quality nursing care. Importantly, I would only consider nursing leadership effective when the leader is directly and actively involved in clinical care provision as that provides opportunities to improve care provision by influencing the nurses that one is leading. Notably, improvements would not be guaranteed if nursing leadership is restricted to management as leadership is founded on the strength of the opinions that the leaders raise, which I believe applies to nursing profession. On considering the aspect of interpersonal skills, I would focus my nursing leadership efforts on team building, establishing respect and confidence in other nurses, coming up with a vision and empowering them. Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses.

I must admit that as a nurse leader in my department, I have been practicing in a very complex environments and these create a moral distress in me. Jameton (1984) believes that the development of moral distress occurs when one knows the morally right thing to do, but cannot, because of organizational forces. As a leader, it is very difficult for me to coordinate interactions when I am under pressure and this will badly affect myself to be an effective leader. I have to influence my staffs group to accomplish key goals by providing inspirations and motivations so that it functions more efficiently in giving a high quality of patient care in my department.

In the article “Skills for Nursing Practice” The authors note that Nursing takes skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, and compassion. These skills are focused around patients, and promotes dignity and respect toward the patient. When becoming a nurse, one of the most important skills is to be organized. This helps with decision making, critical thinking, knowledge, and being professional (Felton). When working in an ER it is important to be up to date with what is going on, and remaining calm in stressful situations.
Nursing to me is a commitment to not only my patients but the community in which they reside. It takes great skill and dedication to be a nurse. Nursing goes beyond simply caring for patients. It involves aspects that many people do not realize, for example, education. When a nurse graduates from a program they are expected to continue to learn new things and stay up to date on the current needs of the community.
Sometimes a medical intervention is necessary for the patient’s survival, but they can still choose to refuse that life-saving intervention. Generally, nurses usually do not obtain informed consent because physicians usually do so, but nurses are still a part of the process and we are usually the witness for the patient signing that form. “Nurses can offer what we do best—patient teaching, as we check patient understanding and obtain written consent. Where possible, use the teach-back method, asking the patient to repeat back what he/she understands. However, our teaching cannot take the place of prior physician / patient shared decision-making.” (Bonsall, 2015) As nurses we can also be sure to teach clients starting at a 5th grade level, providing an interpreter in the event that a language barrier is present, or just presenting information to the patient imagining ourselves in that situation; as a regular person without any medical background trying to understand a different language filled with incomprehensible medical jargon.
They include leading by an example, Advocating for change, respect for other people’s roles and practical communication skills. With this skill as a leader, it provides several opportunities to advance career-wise, the other team of nurses respects you, and at the bedside, you get the attention and care you deserve. Such skills help a leader establish a reliable and robust team that is ready to work without conditions. Influential nurse leaders enhance good relationships between patients and nurses and also create a healthy atmosphere. As a professional nurse, my work environment plays a role in helping me move up the ladder of my career, sharpening my leadership skills and polishing my decision-making skills.
In meeting human needs all these activities are done by nurses. Asking the patient if he or she has any questions or if there is anything further he or she would like to discuss with the physician. As nurses, we are valuable links and resources and we can be the liaison between the patient and the physician, or even the patient and case
