A nurse working in palliative care would require a high level of EI. They need to show understanding to dying patients and their families. In conclusion if EI can enhance patient care, maintain emotional health for staff and improve colleague relationship further research would be required. Akerjordet, K., & Severinsson, E. (2008). Emotionally intelligent nurse leadership: a literature review study.
Nursing philosophy “identifies what is believed to be the basic or central phenomena of the discipline, relates nursing to a particular world view, and provides some information on how one may come to learn about the world”. (p. 13, Salsberry, 2008). My personal philosophy of nursing evolved over the years and includes my observations, beliefs, thoughts, and practices. The purpose of this paper is to discuss my personal philosophy of nursing and the personal and professional experiences that have contributed to the development of my view of nursing. Nineteen ninety-four was a significant year for me; it was the year I began volunteering at the local children's hospital.
A woman centred care: case study This summative assessment will enable me to apply the knowledge and skills I have acquired from the theory sessions of the fundamental aspects of care module. In order to meet the requirements of this assessment a public health issue will be identified from a case scenario. Whilst using a problem solving approach I will critically analyse the woman’s needs and the evidence- based midwifery care involved. By reflecting on the case scenario of a client that I helped to care for in the postnatal ward, I hope to show integration of the roles of the midwife and that of the student in achieving a woman centred care approach within our caseload of that day, through reflection. In this case reflection being the expression of my expectations, perceptions and feelings of the experience represented by the evidence in this case scenario (Rodgers, 2002).
Essence of Nursing Leadership Melissa Frentz Submitted to Norma Yearick, MSN in partial fulfillment of NR 622- Advanced Leadership Concepts Regis University October 1, 2012 Essence of Nursing Leadership Leading groups of people can be life changing. When a person decides they want to lead they have to look at all aspects of their life and how they perceive themselves. They also have to see themselves how others see them. Leading within the career of nursing can also help a person understand themself, whether it is a formal position or an informal position. The essence of nursing leadership has many aspects.
The nurse can either help or interfere with the patient’s healing process, depending on how this nurse-patient relationship is developed and followed through. Watson’s theory helps nurses examine themselves and their patients on a holistic level - mentally, physically, and spiritually. “In Watson’s theory, nursing is centered around helping the patient achieve a higher degree of harmony within mind, body, and soul, and this harmony is achieved through caring transactions involving a transpersonal caring relationship” (Suliman, Welmann, Omer, and Thomas, 2009, p 293).

The following essay aims to identify how reflection in action and on action may impact on the provision of services by District Nurses. The author felt it important to define the two concepts, in order to understand their relevance to practice. It was found by Schon (1983) that reflection- in-action, was a nurses’ ability to understand how an individual was responding to a nursing intervention at the present time; in contrast to reflection-on-action which was thinking through a situation after it had occurred. From this understanding the author established through in depth reading that reflection has been a topic of discussion within nursing, health and social care professions for years (Kinsella, 2009). The theory of reflection has made the author identify the epistemology of reflection in and on action and the effect this can have on her professional growth.
Nursing research re-examines the way nurses provide care for patients. In research you will learn how exploring will influence the way nurses’ practice. You will learn what roles nurses have in the study of nursing research. Hence the importance of nursing research is to improve patients’ outcome. Once you explore the reasons how research influences the way nurses’ practice you will see it is an essential aspect to create and understand why nurses practice nursing in the way they care for patients today.
Obstetrical nurses identify themselves as advocates for laboring women (James, et al., 2003). But, Thorman, et al. (2006) in a Round Table Discussion of Perinatal Nurse Executives, states that, “much work is still needed to support appropriately assertive communication techniques when nurses have concerns about patient status”, to promote and ensure patient safety. My research interest is focused on identifying the barriers to assertiveness, or implementing the chain of command, when an obstetrical nurse is faced with clinical discord that threatens patient safety. This interest, sparked by quality assurance record reviews, led me down a path of communication factors and teamwork systems.
The safety of our patients is our number one priority when giving medical care. However, the core concept of theory help us guide our knowledge which adapt and applied to clinical setting. Theory is a fundamental factor of nursing practice, education, research and outcomes. Core concept that Is Common These theories develop by many theorist that serve as guide in nursing. The core concept of nursing is the diversity in healthcare settings dealt with the disparity between theorist of Florence Nothingale and Jean Watson.
