Leadership in Nursing Essential to quality patient care is the effective functioning of an interdisciplinary team. In most clinical settings, nurses have the closest relationship with patients. For that reason nurses need to take an active role in the interdisciplinary team, they are the front line providers, ensure communication between team members and the patient, and continually advocate for the patient and family. Nurses know how care should be delivered. They can ensure smooth handoffs as the patient transitions through the continuum.
Nurses have a great opportunity to shape the future of the nursing practice through therapeutic communication Armold&Boggs, (2011). While nursing is fundamentally about communicating care and care is at the heart of the nurse client relationship, many problems still remain in the clinical area due to a lack of effective communication. This is supported by Crawford,( 1998).Communication is a key skill of modern nursing practice. Therapeutic Communication is one of the most valuable tools that nurses have to build good interpersonal relationship or trust. I felt the need to develop therapeutic relationship with the patients so that they could feel they could put their trust in me ,also that I was there to listen and talk to them not just care for them.Cutcliff and Mckenna (2005) states that you can gain comfort from drawing on your interpersonal skills, having strength and endurance, feeling self confident , having sufficient competence,beingpeace and ease with oneself and also having a sense of being valued and useful.
Appropriate staffing and the value of recognition also contribute to essential safe nursing practice (AACN, 2005). This paper will explore the critical element of authentic leadership as it contributes to the actual execution of each of these standards. Personal and Professional Accountability The Nurse Manager Inventory Tool, formed by the Nurse Manager Leadership Partnership (NMLP) is a very good reflection of the strengths and weaknesses that exist in a nurse’s journey toward a leadership role (American Organization of Nurse Executives [AONE], 2006). The three domains of evaluation include actual management aspects, skills relating to leadership of others, and creation of personal leadership excellence (AONE, 2006). As evidenced by my current pursuit of a BSN in nursing, I would rate my strength in the personal growth and development area as active and strong.

Watson’s Theories of Human Caring NUR /403Theories and Models of Nursing Practice Priscilla Ricardo Introduction. Watson defined therapeutic nurse-patient relationship as, “ Nurse’s are expected to portray and act professionally, legally and ethically in order to established an effective nurse-client relationship. The significance of an effective nurse patient’s relationship is critical to maintenance, promotion and recovery of patients in every aspect of life. It is central to meeting the patients care needs and therefore communication between the nurse and patients is the foundation on which this relationship is built. The techniques to establish a warm and mutual nurse-client relationship are vital to understand and needless to say important in practice in order to come up with healthy and quality outcome for the patient as well as the nurse.
It is evident that she is aware of barriers to effective communication. Additionally, it is made apparent that communication skills are vitally and fundamentally important in clinical practice. When there is effective communication it creates positive health practices. The need for a therapeutic relationship (patient-centred) is to be the main focus of the student/nurse.

H.,2010, pg.91). Being an effective nurse leader requires establishing an excellent rapport with the nursing team and having the perseverance of imbedding the overall vision into the entire nursing team. “Strong leadership includes having a clear vision and communicating it clearly and passionately to inspire willing participants in the collaborative process of realizing the vision.
This framework defines nursing as a profession rather than a task-based job. It also provides structures that allow the nurse to function as a professional, as a colleague and supports the organization and effective use of resources. The UVA Nursing Care Delivery System: The care delivery system endorsed by the UVA PNSO is Relationship-Based Care. Relationship-Based Care is a framework that identifies the three fundamental relationships that define the patient experience: the nurses’ relationships to self, to colleagues, and to patients and families. Relationship-Based Care aligns with the organizational goals and values and provides a synergistic approach to excellent outcomes.
Teamwork may be one of the most important professional characteristics in healthcare. Nurses act as advocates for the rights of their patients and are frequently involved in ethical issues and ethical decision-making processes. The professional nurse should be aware of and familiar with patient rights. The nurse must evaluate their own professional and personal values, reassessing them
