This method of reflecting on my own personal experiences in a specific set of circumstances promoted thought-provoking questions and ideas. It also helped me to realize the importance of having all the data prior to making a decision on a plan of care. It becomes obvious while attempting to answer questions on case studies when there is not enough information. Case studies are a great way to put yourself into the clinical situation so that as nurses we may have a greater understanding of critical thinking (Asselin, 2012). Challenges as an Evolving Leader Today’s nurse, as an evolving leader, must be compassionate, professional and treat the patient as a whole.

Nursing theories came about as an explanation, reasoning or through research and practice as a way to explain and come up for procedures of healthcare. The best way to look at nursing theories is like the foundational block. Nursing theories are important set the tone of how a nurse will practice. A nurse will use intuition, practice, past expertise and events, and couple with learned theories to work every day in order to give the best patient care. it is all the more important to appreciate what first advanced nursing beyond mechanisms of practice to becoming a knowledge-based force in healthcare: That force is nursing theory and the theoretical thinking and research that generate theory.

After all, it is nurses who are responsible for maintaining the integrity of our profession. Truth Telling and Promise Keeping: Foundations of the Nurse-Patient Relationship The right thing to do was obvious, when put into the perspective of the patient and the nurse-patient relationship. Tele-nursing involves a special sort of nurse patient relationship, one that must be developed with an immediate rapport and understanding of trust with a caller (Nagel, Pomerleau & Penner, 2013). Patients enter into a relationship with the provider and by extension, the after-hours nursing staff, and place their trust in their provider at a potentially vulnerable time (Carter, 2009). While training a nurse who was new to telephone triage, it became evident to me through several calls and transactions that the nurse was not honest in her interactions.
