As part of a nursing leadership team, we have been required to elevate our roles to accommodate the needs of the patients and help with admission and discharge planning. As nurses, we are not only capable of developing the plan of care but providing it as well. Nurses are the driving force of leadership in many hospital settings. In a teaching hospital, there are new residents that rotate every month. Those medical novices as well as their attending, rely upon the experience and valuable input in caring for complex patients.
Case management can be a long-term relationship between a patient and case manager, sometimes lasting several years. In this problem-solving and monitoring role, the nurse handles client assessment, care planning, service coordination, and referrals (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2008). In addition to the previously mentioned community based nursing roles, wellness care is equally important in community health nursing. It involves serving healthy clients in a community based group setting. The primary focus is on performing health screenings, making referrals, and teaching healthy living practices.
The purpose of this paper is to identify and explain the nursing mission of the organization I work for, Allegheny Health Network (AHN), compare this mission to the nursing unit’s mission I work on, explain the structural organization philosophy of AHN, and discuss the pros and cons associated with them. First, the organizations mission, vision, goals, and values are recognized and explained. A description of the professional practice model and care model are provided for support. An explanation of the nursing unit I work on within the hospital is given along with the mission associated with our every day practice. These two missions are then compared to one another to identify similarities, differences, and provide an understanding of how

Nursing care is provided to every patient under the direction of a Registered Nurse which has the responsibility and accountability for the assessment, nursing interventions, delegations to PCA’s (Patient Care Assistant). For instance, nurses can delegate to PCA’s or unlicensed staff to take vital signs, to draw blood, to bathe patients, patient ambulation, etc. The manager has the responsibilities to maintain qualified staff to perform all the tasks, also is responsible for the overall budget, performance improvement, staff retention, etc. The delegation from charge nurse is going to depend on the floors where they work. Some floors allow the charge nurse to take up to two patients, and others, charge nurses only supervise and help other nurses as necessary.
The nurse must execute this process through selection, performance, management and evaluation of nursing actions. The nurse is responsible for assessing the health status of the patients. The RN is a provider for health counseling and teaching patients. The nurse is responsible for administering medications, treatments, and other health regimens that are ordered by a licensed provider. With the practice of the scope of RN, there are also standards that every RN needs to follow.
Critique 1: Qualitative Research Article In the current analysis, Hurst and Koplin-Baucum examine contributing factors that cause work related stress and burnout in nurses, as well as identifying some of the behaviors seen in those who manage work stressors well. The ability to withstand extreme stress and burnout is often an attribute seen in nurses who work in demanding areas of health care. Hurst and Koplin-Baucum have studied these attributes in a small group of nurses working in an ICU, in a tertiary care setting and feel that they have identified some special coping mechanisms that these nurses possess. The study was a descriptive qualitative pilot study that consisted of nineteen nurses in an ICU setting, who had ten or more years of intensive care experience. Title The title of this study, “A Pilot Qualitative Study Relating to Hardiness in ICU Nurses” does not give a clear indication of what details will be reviewed.
