Introduction: The goal of every nurse leader is to establish and sustain a healthy work environment for nursing staff. This must be a priority if nurses are to make their optimal contributions to caring for critical care patients and their families. The link between healthy work environments and patient safety, nurse retention and recruitment are well documented in the nursing literature. Nursing organizations like American Association of Critical Care (AACN) believe that all workplaces where nurses practice can be healthy if nurses and nurse leaders are determined to address not only the physical environment, but also the less tangible barriers to staff and patient safety; e.g. skilled and effective communication, collaboration among disciplines and effective decision making.
Our one commonality as nurses is our commitment to quality patient care. We know, both individually and collectively, that nurses are regarded as honest and valued by our patients.This is the way a person appears to others, or in the case of a profession, the way that profession appears to other disciplines and to the general public consumers of health care. Image and the perception of the profession impact recruitment of students, the view of the public, funding for nursing education and research, relationships with health care administrators and other health care professionals, government agencies
Records K & Wilson LB (2010)32 described that when care providers support their personal worth, use caring communication, facilitate consumer participation in decision making female, patients feel that their dignity is respected. Women treated with dignity feel respected and empowered about their care and are more confident in having a positive health outcome towards future
To enhance patient outcome quality is always a goal of the health care industry. One way to achieve this is therefore to encourage and facilitate nurses’ participation in clinical judgment. As demonstrated, true empowerment is the antecedent of good clinical judgment. This means a structurally empowering environment, a belief of self-efficacy and autonomy to provide valuable quality care, and a nurse-patient partnership. Unless nurses feel empowered, they will however rely on physicians’ order or the bureaucratic system rather than their ability and creativity to make
My leadership in nursing is grounded in the knowledge of the needs of patients; knowledge of skills, individual characteristics and needs of the staff employees; and objectives implemented by the group. The strongest feature of is the stimulation of motivation for each employee to develop their potential, and to take care of a particular patient where the employee recognises that he was considered the best qualified who provided with a service that meets his needs . My leadership in nursing allows me to implement the actions with a view to achieving higher levels of efficiency in care in health and nursing, while in the professional practice law and the code of ethics I find support for the development of process of nursing leadership. According to the theory, the restrictions and requirements the hospitals hinder intimidate the professional nursing as to argue in front of such situation. Another aspect that deserves attention is the fact that, after completing the graduation, I enter a labor market, which requires professional
Through effective engagement with the patient it can instil a sense of connection and in turn the patient will actively participate throughout the interview. Effectively engaging is ultimately the foundation for motivational interviewing. In order for patients to feel connected and comfortable, nurses must be open minded, compassionate as well as providing reassurance in order to create relaxed environment for patients to voice both positive and negative feelings in relation to behavioural change (Resnicow, K & Blackburn. D
Furthermore, my case analysis reveals that nurse leaders should appreciate individuality, and most importantly, regardless of the type of interaction, we as humans’ desire, feeling valued, especially by an organization, which can empower individuals. Therefore, applying The Quality-Caring Model© by Dr. Joanne R. Duffy effectively addresses the global issues of job satisfaction and nurse retention, which in turn, can have a significant impact the healthcare outcome for individuals, families, populations, and/or
The nurse leader needs to be able to communicate with and trust their floor nurse. The nurse leader must also be able to show trust in the staff that they have trained. They must also show knowledge and quick thinking in unconventional circumstances. This way the staff feels confident and safe that they have a competent leader Positive feedback is what makes a company really flourish as a whole from the janitors/groundkeepers to the CEO/CFO/COO. Being told what a person is doing right is normally a motivation to do even better.
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
So to consider her problem nurses need to cooperate caringly, effectively and skilfully when communicating with her to ensure that therapeutic relationship is being establish and positive communication is occurred, besides of it respect her culture. The concepts of cultural competence, knowledge, understanding, skills, awareness as well as sensitivity are strengthened by the characteristics of nurses’ talent, honesty, suppleness and competency can help to achieve positive communication with Mrs Bernardi. The social environment of an individual involves all the social relationships they familiarity with society, also those relationships can be inspiring and helpful, depressing and unhelpful, or a mixture of both. The social environment for Mrs Bernardi, she needs assistance and can influence her responses and ability to communicate efficiently. If the social environment of a family is a residence of abuse and hindrance, this will form the communication grace of the distinct and the behaviour linked with this type of social environment is not always collaborative or
Nurses are willing to stay at a hospital that recognizes them as part of the team. Magnet hospitals follow a retention model that “focuses on promoting standards for professional nursing practice and recognizing quality, excellence, and service” (Cherry & Jacob, 2014, p. 227). When nurses feel like they are part of the team from hospitals promoting these standards they are more willing to stay with the organization due to satisfaction. Nurse Satisfaction Nurse satisfaction to many nurses depends on how they feel about management. Many nurses feel that they can be satisfied with their place of employment if management listens to their needs and allows them to be involved in decisions: We now have an evidence-based definition of employee engagement relevant to healthcare.
you all the time. In conclusion, effective leadership skills are crucial as they facilitate a positive working environment and aid in retention of employees. The ability to retain nurses is important as it promotes a stable workforce, reduces costs, and improves the quality and continuity of patient care (Graham & Melnyk,

There are elements of type I behavior that I would like to incorporate in my future career, autonomy does work but to a certain extent, they have autonomy during their work hours when they need to check things off on their to do list while caring for the patients, “humans have a desire to be autonomous, self- determined” (Pink 71). They have autonomy when working because they are determined to get their task done. Mastery would also be incorporated because nurses need intrinsic motivation to do what they’re doing, “Mastery is the desire to get better and better at something that matters” (Pink 98). As a nurse I would want to succeed every day at my job to do better and better with my patients and grow my knowledge. Purpose is also really important because most reasons on why people become nurses is because they have compassion for others and don’t do it for the money, pink sates that purpose is doing something meaningful and contributing to the
This leads to a process of actions and reaction resulting in an interaction. An interaction is the goal directed portion of relationship built upon perception and communication. This leads to a transition, which is when mutually valued, as goals are achieved. Building a nurse-patient relationship with good communication is the key to mutually work towards an attainable goal to improve the patient 's’ health and quality of life. According to King “If nurses with special knowledge and skills communicate appropriate information to clients, mutual goal setting and goal attainment with occur” (as cited in McEwen & Wills, 2014, p. 176).
