Josepha has been a nurse for four months, and after completing two months of orientation she takes a full assignment as a registered nurse.

The assumption is that only nurses who work in the hospital setting are subjected to nurse fatigue, but this problem affects in the rehabilitation facilities, home care nursing, specialized clinics. Nurses work long hours to compensate for the shortage of nursing staff within most healthcare facilities. When nurses are tired to the point of exhaustion critical errors can be made that would not normally occur if they were working regular hours. Peplau theory focuses on interpersonal relations between nurses and patients which is valuable in developing interventions for specific care within the clinical
Nursing managerial identity As explained above our managers experience of their hybrid role can be organized into three separate groups depending on their perceived conflict in the hybrid role. However, as we already mentioned, our research have come to conclude additional aspects of their experience that is salient in all groups of managers as it stem from their construction of themselves in their professional-managerial hybrid role. We argue that our concept of a nursing managerial identity may be a result of how the nurse managers combine their past of a nurse with their presence of a manger, enacting the duality of the hybrid role. As through their identity construction one can understand how they experience their hybrid role as it guides
Based on this theory, it is focuses on individuals who are in poor health and under the physician’s care. She believes that major concern in nursing is resolving individual’s need for help by using an interactive discipline process that is gained through training. Orlando (1990) observed that her interpretation of nursing process is wider than the one usually advocated in undergraduate nursing curriculum. This theory give large impact on nursing education in North America and globally, although the emphasis on the process itself may have detracted from wider intent of theory to improve the interaction between client and nurses. She defines the actual role of nurses is to perceive the client as an individual.
Decision making is an important element of the managers role that is based upon problems or potential issues. Throughout each 24-hour day, nurse managers make countless decisions that impact patient, staff and organisational outcomes (Shirey et al., 2013).These decisions take place in complex work environments often with incomplete information, role overload and frequent interruptions which can affect the decision making process.However, it has been highlighted that a lack of involvement in practice-related decision making is a major source of nurses’ job dissatisfaction (Kramer and Schmalenberg, 2003, cited in MacPhee et al., 2010).The nurse manager should engage staff in unit based decisions and assist them to be part of the solution for the unit based issues so they can become the leaders of change. This shared decision making strategy can also be referred to as a structural empowerment strategy.Structural empowerment refers to employees’ access to information, resources, supports and opportunities through formal or informal lines of power (MacPhee et al, 2010). The results of this approach predict nurse job satisfaction, decision involvement and trust and respect in
Hospital wards have been the traditional clinical placement setting for nursing students. Newton, Jolly, Ockerby and Cross (2010) purports that practice in the clinical setting is a requirement to ensure fitness to practice as a nurse. From an educational view, clinical placement is the avenue where skills, knowledge and attitudes developed in the theoretical part of the curriculum are applied, developed and incorporated. Wang, Shang and Jin (2005) asserts that after visiting the clinical area for a week, nursing students begin to dislike the nursing profession however Holsem (2010) stated that the development of confidence during clinical experiences places emphasis on the openness about expectation, time of reflection and been welcome and appreciated. If these priorities are put it place nursing students clinical experience will be effective as they look forward to gain additional knowledge and skills to tackle the world of work but if this knowledge and skills are not garnered through effective clinical experience nursing students will fail to gain confidence and high levels of competency to venture into the world of
Part of what defines a profession is that its members must undergo specialized training and possess a certain level of education, which provides them with a greater level of autonomy and control in their chosen line of work. A 2012 study examining the correlation between nurses’ ethical decision-making ability and their professional behaviors determined that “Competence, continued education, and professional autonomy is among the basic criteria of professionalism. Professional autonomy entails exercising the judgment of one’s own work using professional values and standards. Professional autonomy and competency are important as ethical decision-making will require independent reasoning and accountability. In this study, nurses lacking professional autonomy did not consider themselves active decision makers, a finding consistent with the literature.” (Cerit & Dinc, 2012, p. 209).
the current workplace climate is characterized by heavy workloads that may interfere with nurses’ ability to provide a high quality of care and lead to burnout in novice nurses (Cho et al., 2006). Within the first two years of practice, many new graduate nurses leave their jobs as a result of negative working environments (Bowles and Candela, 2005; Kovner et al., 2006). Job satisfaction is a primary factor that influences nurses’ decision to remain with organizations (Lu et al., 2012). In addition, work environments that support professional nursing practice, have been found to enhance nurses’ job satisfaction, increase productivity ,reduce turnover rates and improve the quality of healthcare (Aiken et al., 2014 )nursing leaders play a role
Peer-to-Peer Mentorship for Academic Success in an LPN Program Problem Identification Beginning a nursing program can be an exceptionally stressful and anxiety producing experience. This is especially true in an accelerated, twelve month, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program. While the intention of nursing education is to prepare students to engage in the role of a professional nurse, the process of its completion is an arduous task. Students are often overwhelmed by the rigorous and fast-paced workload of the nursing curricula, as well as the day-to-day challenges of being a college student. Often, these high levels of stress can lead to academic failure (Kim, Oliveri, Riingin, Taylor, & Rankin, 2013).
The employability of nursing care professionals was considered to be high in the previous years, however, in today new challenging world, everyone especially those fresh graduates are in neck-to-neck competition in hunting for a job. In Malaysia, according to Ministry of Higher Education about 24% of graduates were unemployed in 2012. Employability as defined by Minten and Forsyth (2014) is the capability to move self-sufficiently within the labor market to realize potential through sustainable employment. In the other hand, employability according to Yorke (2006) as a unit of achievements, skill, competences, understanding and personal characteristics that enable graduates to get employment so they are successful in their chosen occupation. Nursing is known as a profession that involve theory and skills in delivering health care to the patients.
There is a lot of talk about nursing homes not being very good to the patient and there is a lot of elderly financial abuse and physical abuse that goes on sometimes in nursing homes when you become a nurse you have to be good at what you do and if you only there for a paycheck then it 's not the job for you. I am passionate about becoming a registered nurse and I love taking care of people so when I will take the course and I felt like a failure I wanted to give it all up. When I took my certified nursing assistant exam I pass it and I started to apply for jobs and within the next few days I was getting calls I started a new job as a certified nursing assistant and I had to attend a training and I 'm already good at what I do. Being at the hospital and or nursing home is such a good feeling because you are making people around you happy who may not have family that home or pet or people to just talk to. I want to continue my education by going to college and getting my bachelors in nursing and then maybe my masters to become a nurse practitioner and then I can open up my range of help to people.
