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
Therefore, nurses need to led innovations so they can develop models to prove how to access care and improve quality of care. Also, manage nursing clinics. All possible education acquired with basic competency to meet the demands of an aging and diverse society, with an emphasizes on clinical training done in a healthcare facility to go across the life span. Nurse need to expand their scope of practice, with full extent of their knowledge and licensure work with physicians to provide cost effectiveness and the shortage of primary care. Also, with embracing technology by learning the newest medical techniques, this includes schools using a stimulation lab and online courses.
APN Role and Leadership Competencies Julliet A. Thomas Grantham University Abstract There are many different aspects of Advance Practice Nursing (APN) make that make the nursing profession unique and valuable. The competencies that comprise each advanced practice nursing discipline are vital in creating a solid foundation for clinical nursing. They prepare you to conquer challenges in the clinical setting and cultivate innovation to establish processes for clinical practice. Advance Practice Nursing is recognized as 4 nursing roles: Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), the Certified Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and the Nurse Practitioner (NP).
The second specific practice theory in nursing is the professionalism concepts. The professionalism concepts are based on the delivery of professional nursing aspects, quality health care and health policy (Polit & Beck, 2013). By taking into account these concepts, it is a serious concern that the nursing fraternity will have been a better profession and industry catering for the well-being of humanity race. Therefore, being a nurse, I have to take into consideration all the aspects that would enable an efficient delivery of quality services (Dossey, 2010).
In order for the future of health care to change, changes must begin at the top with stakeholders, the hierarchy and nursing management, nurses as leaders within their organizations. According to Disch J. (2008), nurses as leaders within their organizations need to also step forward, CNEs have the background, perspective, and platform to help their organizations seriously tackle safety issues that jeopardize patient care and that face nurses and their colleagues daily, and are the essential building blocks of all health systems--and
Nursing practice requires both critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Critical thinking is the process of deliberate higher level thinking to define a patient’s problem, examine the evidence-based practice in caring for the patient’s, and make options in the delivery of optimal care. Critical thinking involves the demarcation of statements of fact, judgment, and opinion. The progression of critical thinking requires the nurse to think imaginatively, use reflection, and engage in logical thinking (Alfaro-LeFevre, 2013). Critical thinking is a vital skill needed for the recognition of patient’s problems and the execution of interventions to endorse effectual care outcomes (Bittencourt & Crossetti, 2012).
Leadership has many definitions. Chin, Desormeaux, and Sawyer (2016) define leadership as a relationship between followers and a leader with the intent to promote change through a mutual vision. Therefore, leaders are active influences in the outcome of organizations, through their decision-making, strategies, and influence on followers (Dinh et al., 2014). Additionally, in the nursing context, it has been documented that a leader 's style plays a factor in patient outcomes (Fischer, 2016). Indeed, in an ever-changing, complex health care environment, nursing leadership has become a crucial factor in managing challenges and maintaining patient safety (Fischer, 2016).
1. The metaparadigm of nursing illustrates the collective worldview of the shared concepts of the discipline, which are: the person, environment, health and nursing (1). The nursing metaparadigm is the framework for many nursing theories, values, and theoretical models, which help guide an advanced practice nurse in selecting appropriate interventions established by their chosen conceptual model. A conceptual model or advanced practice nursing theory provides an advanced practice nurse a logical structural model to follow, which is aligned with the discipline’s expectations. Advanced education prepares advanced practice nurses to employ a superior degree of clinical, research based and theoretical knowledge (2).
The purpose of this quality initiative is to provide measures necessary to facilitate the frontline ED nurses in the early identification and treatment of sepsis. The clinical question for this scholarly project is as follows: “In the emergency department, will quality improvement initiatives, improve the frontline nurses’ early recognition and treatment of
In fact, nurses are the largest part of health care workforce and nursing practice is very crucial to address the clinical issues, leadership and management, policy making, public health care and others. Doctorate level nurses have great role in identifying and implementing the new knowledge, skills and evidenced based research to solve those issues in the area of nursing practice (The future of nursing leading change, advancing health, 2010).I personally believe that new skills, knowledge, evidenced based practice and scientific research should be promoted in nursing field so that quality of nursing practice, patient satisfaction and health status of public can be improved. In addition, focusing on the need of nursing practice and IOM future recommendation, I have planned to continue my education to advanced level in
Malasanos and Ramnitz (2013) mentioned that health care shortages affect both physicians and nursing. The nurse is going to have to change the focus of care they provide. Evans (2014) mentioned that one way a nurse can change focus is through Informatics. The Informatics nurse is responsible for designing and supporting information systems and processes with the aim of increasing telemedicine effectiveness (Evans, 2014). Many nurses in school setting now have to have a great background in electronic information and technology.
The field of nursing science has been evolving with great speed and nursing knowledge has been transforming into clinical practice. However, Stevens (2013) indicated for meaningful impact on performance and better patient health outcomes, new knowledge must be implemented effectively across the entire care team within a systems context, and measurable terms. Furthermore, the Future of Nursing report from the IOM, 2011a, recommended that nurses lead interprofessional teams in improving delivery systems and care brings to the fore the necessity for new competencies, beyond evidence-based practice (EBP), that are requisite as nurses transform healthcare ( as cited in Stevens, 2013). Evidence-based practice has been and will continue to be one of the most important method that will shape advanced practice nursing environment. Knowledge translation has been facilitating the effective and timely incorporation of evidence-based information into the practices of health professionals in a way as to effect optimal health care outcomes and maximize the potential of the health care system ( as cited in Sudsawad, 2007).
Infant Blood Glucose Monitoring: Staff Workaround Policy and procedure play a huge part in the nursing career. They provide the health care team with written directions on how do something the way the hospital wants the employee to do it. Are the hospitals policies and procedures always current on best practice? No. This is why it is important as future nurses to start to research and make sure that the institution is keeping current with the latest best practice changes.
Nurses are a vital part of the health care system and the leaders that manage their performance can affect their productivity, trust, and even acceptance of change. The purpose of this paper is to discuss my style of leadership based on a leadership style survey. I will also describe what leadership and management theories align with my leadership style. After presenting my leadership style, I will discuss the work environment that this style would be successful in. I will conclude with three key behaviors that will demonstrate the skills of a successful leader.
Marquis and Huston (2014) discuss how the mark of a good nursing leader is in the ability to inspire and motivate others to action; furthermore, no one leadership style is ideal and may vary according to the situation. The purpose of this paper is to match and explain the nursing leadership theory that is most applicable to solving communication issues, and to explain how legislation and health care policy can impact communication issues in the nursing. Nursing Leadership Theory Nursing leadership is complex and multifaceted and has been cited as a main reason nurses leave their current position (Blake, Leach, Robbins, Pike, & Needleman, 2013).
