I graciously accept this responsibility. My assignment is to express my creativity in an attractive and inspirational manner to attend health care issues and resolve in an ethical way.

It is the job of the APN to apply their skills to promote a culture of excellence. Promoting such a culture involves using all aspects of the quality competency. The Nurse Practitioner is in a unique position as a clinician and manager. According to Carney (2011), clinical managers have the capability to ensure the safe, ethical, and high quality of care due to their professional background, which is firmly grounded in ethical healthcare. Therefore, the APN has a distinct set of skills that will ensure positive patient outcomes.
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.

Analysis Using John’s (2000) model of reflection, I managed to observe and analyse the patient daily, ensuring that empathy and compassion were at the very top of my agenda. This enabled me to perform a detailed analysis of the root cause of the problem of which I identified core issues that needed effective support. According to Maher (2011)” a healthcare professional’s reflection can be used to support the implementation of improvements adding value to their learning and finding the root cause of a problem”. The main issues of concern which needed interventions were identified as communication, individual support both humanitarian and clinical, recognition of a patient as an individual, and communication. In analysis therefore i came to the
I first acknowledged the importance of healthcare and my desire to study nursing years ago when I started working at a medical clinic. Although I spent most of my time filing patients’ notes and other documents, I learned a lot by listening. This simple act had a complementary effect that enhanced my strategic-thinking skills and my ability to communicate. By working alongside nurses and practitioners, I discovered that with these acquired listening skills and the appropriate medical training, I could be a successful nurse. As time passed, my yearning to assist patients heightened.
An open culture is also important because it makes the workers to be free in discussing their concerns and experiences with other health care officials. Humanity and empathy are also professional values that are central to appropriate nursing. In the light of this, it is important for nurses and doctors to consider patient needs and ensure that the dignity of the patients is maintained throughout care and treatment. Cvengros (2008) claims that attending to distressing symptoms, personal care, and food needs is among the practices that maintain patient dignity. Leavitt and Leavitt (2011) claim that nurses and doctors should act without delay in case they feel that patients might be at risk.
Integrity is necessary to build a positive patient and health care provider relationship. Integrity allows for the patient, family members, and healthcare providers to all be at the same level
