It helps guide nurses in focusing on the quality of patient care to provide for better outcomes. One of Parse’s models that I believe closely relates to nurses is the teaching-learning model. “Teaching-learning is a never-ending journey of giving-receiving in coming to know, and is an ever-changing unitary process that focuses on the individuals’ responsibility for learning and a belief in truth for the moment” (Parse, 2007, pg. 33). This model affects me as a nurse in a positive way.
Adding on when nurses are self-aware they are able to adapt to, or positively change their attitudes and actions and to understand how different people treat them and this creates a better nurse-patient relationship. In addition a positive self-awareness gives a sense of continuity, wholeness and consistency to a person. In relation to nursing, self-awareness helps nurses to learn about their strength and weaknesses. “It helps nurses to deliver better client care thus; client gets well soon and builds a trusting relation between the client and the nurse. Self-awareness helps nurses to identify several problems that might be a cause I providing better care”(Nancy Burns, 2005).
This being said, leadership focused on task completion alone is not enough to have positive outcomes (Cummings et al., 2009). In order for transformational leaders in nursing to have positive outcomes, they have to enhance the nurse’s satisfaction, and create a healthy work environment (Cummings et al., 2009). Nurses can do this again by demonstrating the four key behaviours that were discussed above. A very important part of transformational leadership in nursing is being able to create that healthy work environment. Your nursing staff needs to feel encouraged, and feel like they are able to share new ideas, and act on them in order for the healthy work environment to be
Due to this strength, I often speak words of encouragement and try not to bring others down. I am able to acknowledge individual’s opinions and take their suggestions into consideration. I do not like attention drawn to myself, instead I rejoice in the accomplishments of others. I believe that by sharing information, resources, talents, and time I am able to grow as a person and professional. As a nurse, this strength is admirable because nursing requires teamwork.
The purpose of reflection is to increase knowledge and improve skills while evaluating individual performance in practice. It also helps healthcare professionals to avoid past mistakes, problem solve and increase opportuni-ty 's to gain new knowledge. Reflection is an ongoing process that allows health care profes-sionals to consider their own actions and to recognize their strengths and weaknesses in order to determine whether their involvement had a positive or negative impact on the outcome of the critical incident. Tashiro et al. (2012) Suggest that nurses who reflect are more effective in providing better quality patient care and it enables nurses to engage in lifelong learning and self-improvement.
The second component of the essay will be my reflection of the use of those skills in a recorded nurse patient situation. Rapport building According to the Abbe and Susan (2014), rapport building can be defined as positive interpersonal communication. Additionally, rapport building provides more information by building trust with the patient and helps the health care professional and patient to be more obliging (Abbe & Susan, 2014). However, It also takes time and space to build trust with a patient (Dinc, 2013). Without a trusting relationship between the nurse and patient, it is impossible to fulfill the patient’s needs and to improve their satisfaction with the nursing care provided.
Feedback from my fellow nurse colleagues helped me notice what I should expand on and clear up for future nursing development. This informal presentation serves as an important informative topic for nursing and how nurses can be a better and reliable care provider. The three nurses have had similar experiences as I have had as a registered nurse in multiple situations of patient care. They understand the health care system and constant research on how to improve health for the patients, so that nurses can learn and educate themselves to incorporate their studies. Three nurse colleagues included are Silvestre Rodriquez, Maria Ramirez, and Tiffany Muñoz, who have the same amount of experience as I have as a registered nurse.
Another factor that influences being a safe and professional nurse is having the right attitude. This will help you develop your nursing skills better if you have a positive attitude, because you may work with a team of registered nurses but you must recognize that each of you have your strengths and weaknesses. You must value each nurse for their expertise and skills, and always be willing to learn and accept feedback to help improve yourself. As a nurse, you may be great at starting IVs, while another nurse may be great at talking to patients, another nurse may be great at wound care, etc. Overall, recognizing when to ask for help is a good quality in nursing, this isn’t as a disfavor to yourself but actually a service to your patient, because
All healthcare professionals should applied therapeutic communication and understanding of effective communication in health care setting to create a positive relationship with the patient and families. As stated by the article “Good communication is not only based on the physical abilities of nurses, but also on education and experience” (Lambrini & Ioanna, 2014). Learning how to provide effective communication is a beneficial application to nursing practice since nurse
A Nurse’s educator role that this writer selected from a handful of different function is that of a staff development role. Although this chosen role is challenging, it is rewarding. A staff educator can see the transition of a newly hired staff nurse and at the same time continues to transform the experienced nurse’s competence in their field or practice. “Nursing education strengthens professional competence and similarly strengthens personal character to produce a nurse fit for all dimensions of practice” (Glenn, 2014). Education has such a crucial role to play; it is an instrument to develop an individual as a whole.
