One of the highest and most important management positions in a healthcare organization is the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). They are responsible for many different tasks that keep the organization afloat and running. One of their responsibilities is to coordinate and oversee the nursing department and all of its daily operations. In order to do this, they are in charge of ensuring that the daily operations run in the organization comply with all regulations and standards. CNOs also develop and implement new objectives, policies and procedures. Other responsibilities include providing guidance to nursing staff, acting as a resource to fellow colleagues, recruiting, hiring, retention of staff, handling disciplinary actions, preparing/overseeing
Introduction In healthcare it is very important to have strong leaders, especially in the nursing profession. A nurse leader typically uses several styles of leadership depending on the situation presented; this is known as situational leadership. It is important that the professional nurse choose the right style of leadership for any given situation to ensure their employees are performing at their highest potential. Depending on which leadership style a nurse leader uses, it can affect staff retention and the morale of the employees as well as nurse job satisfaction (Azaare & Gross, 2011.) “Nursing leaders have the responsibility to create and maintain a work environment which not only promotes positive patient outcomes but also
INTRODUCTION Leadership may mean different things to different people, the consensus opinion of experts in this field is that leadership is using power to direct and influence activities of people to achieve set goals or targets. Nursing leadership is all about every nurse providing, facilitating and promoting the best healthcare services to client and to the public. Leadership is a shared responsibility. (CNO 2012). The nursing profession need leaders that can build the capacity of nurses through mentoring, coaching, supporting, developing the expertise and management skills of nurses to make a difference to the quality of patient care at all levels of the profession ( McIntyre & McDonald, 2014 ). At the core of every leadership either political or managerial is power and how the leader uses it. While it is practically impossible to lead without power, how the nurse leader uses this power not only determine the leadership style but also the results or outcomes of what is achieved through the process.
Slide 1: The expectations of nurses today are higher than ever with goals such as achieving top percentiles in nursing and patient satisfaction, to being among the top leaders in quality outcomes, and to build productive work relationships and environments. Nursing leaders serve as the primary link between staff, physicians, and the community. They are expected to be innovative, highly skilled, possess a certain degree of nursing knowledge, and produce qualified individuals to care for the growing population. According to Lorber, Treven, and Mumel (2016) “nursing leadership is pivotal because nurses represent the most extensive discipline in health care”. Because of this growing need for diversity in leadership and my background in the military, I decided to focus on the MSN Executive Track at Chamberlain College of Nursing.
Abstract “Nursing is informed caring for the well-being of others” (Swanson, 1993, p. 352). Kristen Swanson’s relationship-based caring theory encompasses maintaining belief, knowing, being with, doing for, and enabling. Nursing is a profession with vast opportunities for growth and development. Each nurse has his or her individual passions; mine reside within obstetrics, women’s health, and nursing leadership. Nurse leaders play an integral role in the success of healthcare organizations. Nurse leaders shape the roles of nurses within their organizations. Nurse leaders seek methods to improve patient care. They also use innovation to gain efficiencies in care delivery and decrease healthcare cost. Many nurse leaders have an ultimate goal to aspire to be a chief nursing officer in a healthcare
Nurses are increasingly becoming the strong leadership in developing all aspects of health care policy and decisions. Unfortunately the shared consensus is that most nurses do not possess leadership skills adequate enough to keep up with the ever-evolving field. The IOM reports on this by stating: “Nurses at all levels need strong leadership skills to contribute to patient safety and quality of care.” (IOM, 2010 pp.223) It is felt that nurses are depicted as people who carry out
You make great points analyzing the evolution of Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL). It was interesting to learn that the CNL was the first new role in nursing since the nurse practitioner was introduced over many years ago. “The CNL evolved after the AACN convened a task force to identify ways to improve quality of patient care and determine how to prepare nurses with the skills and competencies needed to thrive in the current and future healthcare system” (Stavrianopoulos, 2012). In the health care organizations, CNLs play a significant role and are responsible for patient outcomes by applying evidence-based practices. They design, implement, and evaluate patient care by coordinating, delegating, and supervising the care provided by the healthcare
Analyzing a Nurse in a Manger Role The purpose of this paper is to “gain a holistic perspective of the leadership role and their impact on patient outcomes” (Sinutko, 2016). The role of a nurse in a management position can extend beyond the confines of the hospital. “There are plenty of opportunities to put your nursing skills to good use outside the hospital walls” (Brooks, 2015). Nursing information technology (IT), research analyst, healthcare educator, and the insurance industry are just a few of the opportunities for nurses to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of the population. To create this positive healthcare environment, nurse leaders must work “within a collaborative and interprofessional environment” to
The Rising of a New Nurse leader Introduction The making of a nurse leader takes education, training, and experience. Whatever the personality trait of a professional nurse, this self-discovery will only be a means to aim in becoming a nurse leader. A professional nurse in leadership is one that is transformational, involved in a professional organization, a change agent, and has a high Emotional Intelligence to be able to manage a team. She is aware and knowledgeable of the inevitable changes occurring in the nursing field. She is highly capable in setting up strategies for conflict resolution and culturally competent with such capacity in achieving high performance in a diverse healthcare team. Most importantly, her leadership promotes

The knowledge from this course provides insight to and foundation for the role of Chief Nurse Executive (CNE). Our current four-hospital system does not have a CNE, but nursing governance occurs through a Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) council. The need for the CNE role has increased with the additional hospital responsibility for population health (Bradley, 2014). The financial management aspects of the course afford the knowledge for a hospital CNO’s acceptance into the senior C suite as a CNE, which is a possible personal goal for my current role. According to Finkler, Jones, and Kovner (2013), the CNE role provides a broad-spectrum view of the hospital organization instead of a narrow focus on nursing which is the CNO role. The detailed comparison explanation by Finkler et al. (2013) regarding line managers and staff managers and their need for balance provides support advocacy for the need of a CNE
As a healthcare organization, there is a heavy focus on Learning within the Patient Care Services division. Nurse Managers in excellent HCOs lead teams accountable for operating scorecards. They work directly with physician leaders of the service lines, identifying OFIs, participating in PITs, and negotiating improvement goals. They are also supported by a strong nursing organization led by a chief nursing officer (CNO) or nurse executive with an organization to ensure credentialing, manage nurse training and development, recruit and retain a competent and proficient nursing workforce, implement nursing practice standards and functional protocols, and maintain consistent performance of nursing activities. The CNO is a member of senior management and acts as the principal strategic and operational executive to ensure uniform achievement of good nursing practice.
Professor and Class, One of the highlights in our lesson this week (Chamberlain College of Nursing, 2016) states that “Nurse executives are a key player in the value added to an organization as they demonstrate competencies related to every aspect of the services provided to patients.” Our Chief Nurse Officer (CNO) exemplifies great leadership attributes, and has a high professional level with how she communicates with her staff, patients, and consumers throughout the nursing division.
Approaches of Nursing Leaders and Managers to Issues in Practice: Nurse Shortage and Nurse Turnover Background In the healthcare field, nursing leaders and managers face consistent issues in their respective practices that force them to alter the way they work and the way they think. In taking on a role as a leader within the field, nursing leaders and managers also take on the role of ensuring that work within an organization runs smoothly regardless of new issues that may arise in the healthcare arena. For instance, in today's healthcare environment, the issues of nurse shortage and nurse turnover have the capacity to alter the healthcare field and many of its respective branches and organizations should these problems not be managed properly by the leaders in the field. In viewing the issue at hand and in discovering how nursing leaders and managers are expected to act, and do act, in order to approach this issues, along with pinpointing the best approach possible to aid this issue, one can better understand which leadership styles are necessary for leaders to function.
David Jones Bonham English 12 The Role of Doctors in Society Doctors have had a significant influence on society for several years. It is part of every doctor’s role to help the community. Without doctors diseases would be more common and almost impossible to get rid of. A lot more people would die from easily treatable or curable diseases. Doctors save lives. They can prescribe medications that change life for the better while some have to perform risky operations on injured patients. When faced with difficulties, they have to make vital decisions to help patients. Sometimes doctors have to work under extreme pressure. Every day someone has to depend on a doctor to enhance his or her life by curing ailments. Even without a cure, doctors can make ailments bearable. Medical professionalism has been around for thousands of years and is still significant in today’s society. Doctors can also aid patients by helping them learn about diseases. By educating patients on prevention, disease, and treatment, [doctors] empower them to include scientific thought in key decisions that affect their own care (Bokoch 16). Patients can use this information to prevent diseases from returning. Anyone can see that doctors have an important role in the community. A doctor’s main roles in society are to improve the health of the public, control outbreaks of disease, and to lengthen the lives of patients.
