She answered the question differently she answers the question as being a role model for nursing and patients by being an advocate for nursing. I believe the reasons for the different answers are have to do with the fact that each of these nurses work in a different field. One is in a community based setting where she has taken on the role of a manager. The other nurse works in a hospital setting under a manager or charge nurse. The Second question in the interview has to do with working on an interdisciplinary team.
"Furthermore, nursing practice incorporates intellectual and interpersonal skills in the care of patients and their families and emphasizes an interdisciplinary and collaborative relationship with other healthcare providers. Excellence in nursing requires commitment, caring, and critical thinking in terms of mastery of clinical skills, status, and control over practice" (CCN, 2015). When referring to the "person" aspect of metaparadigm for nursing we, as nurses, focus on the comfort, safety, care, needs, and advocacy of our patients. With each patient I encounter, I make an attempt to connect on a personal level with these patients, learn a little bit more of their personal life, and build upon trust; all of which aids in the successful health outcome/quality of stay for my patients. The environment aspect of metaparadigm for nursing, this gives us, as nurses, the opportunity to explore the patients demographics, mental concerns, and safety concerns when out of the hospital; this allows for us, the nurse, to have a better insight on ways in which we could improve their environmental factors while in the hospital.

Running head: NURSING PHILOSPHY Nursing Philosophy Grand Canyon University: NRS 430V 19 August 2011 Nursing Philosophy Every person may have their individual perspective about nursing. Professional nurses continue to develop their own philosophies with experiences they each have with their patients. It is very difficult to face the demands of caring for people from day to day without the solid foundation of a personal philosophy.

Nurses are the ones who spend most of the time with patients. Nurses are the ones who encourage them, embrace them when sad and join in laughter when they are happy.

Would the care provided for the patient is different if the nurse has an Associate Degree in nursing (ADN) or a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (BSN)? This document will focus on
Nurse Leader Interview Nurse leadership has the distinct responsibility to manage “challenging workplace and workforce issues” (Cummings, et al., 2009, p. 1). In the past, nurse administrators believed that leadership was simply the process of ensuring the completion of specific tasks while providing care to patients. As the nursing profession grew, nurse leaders are now held responsible and accountable for financial, administrative, and patient care management. Future nurse leaders must become educated on various leadership styles that can be used independently or in collaboration depending upon each situation’s needs and the people involved. The objective of this paper is to present the views of a nurse administrator regarding leadership and the application of various leadership styles.

My career is challenging and has led me to contemplate pursuing an advanced degree in nursing and particularly the CRNA specialty.
