Hello Professor and class,

Nurses as leaders impact the overall healthcare system with knowledge about the law and political system. To develop an effective holistic care system that will provide care to every single patient or the one in need without discrimination, cultural difference, socio-economic status. It is especially important to understand by nurses the different roles and skills they have how they can utilize them (Whitney, 2018). My goal is to learn from the class to understand the formal and Informal power of nurse leader and how to utilize it at an organizational practical level.

According to Whitney (2018), leadership and management go together; there cannot be leadership without management and vice versa. At some point, all nurses carry out leadership and managerial roles. Managerial roles and leadership roles may overlap in a sense that both look ahead and are not narrow minded (Whitney, 2018). Both roles also heavily influence, not only their group, but outsiders as well (Whitney, 2018). Whitney (2018) goes on to say, “Nurse leader-managers are change agents. They accept the current structure and processes of the organization but are aware of the need for change according to ever-changing realities and desire organizational growth as needed.” Nurse leaders can take advantage of having influence over a group and beyond that to facilitate change. Valiga (2019) argues that “leaders utilize the strengths and talents of those around them to influence positive change, often empowering others to take on leadership roles of their own. They encourage, support, and mentor their followers. In turn, followers challenge leaders and suggest alternatives to their ideas.” Despite being very similar, however, there are also some differences. For example, managerial positions are assigned, whereas leadership roles are appointed through influence (Whitney, 2018). More differences include–managers typically are in authoritative roles and have subordinates, compared to leaders who usually lack that same authority but have followers (Whitney, 2018).

The knowledge of nurse leadership skill is important as well as it affects directly the level of care the patient receives. Today healthcare system have been changing day to day and challenging too. For safe and effective patient care nurse leaders need to self-update to meet challenges today, through the next decade and beyond. So one of my number one goal is first to understand the leadership and management knowledge which will help me to growth nursing professionalism and help to role the organization in a positive way by utilize knowledge, skill, and resources and lead in effective way by influencing to the team member.

RepliesDQ: Describe the difference in roles between leadership and managementto Darlene Hicks

Hi Professor Hicks and the class, Nursing is a dynamic and demanding profession that necessitates role models and leaders that are both engaging and motivating. One of the most difficult difficulties facing the nursing profession today is identifying and training nurse leaders in an ever-changing and demanding healthcare environment. The concept of leadership is a complex and multi-dimensional phenomenon; despite being one of the most observed concepts, no universally recognized definition or theory of leadership exists, according to studies conducted over a century. What true nursing leadership is and how it differs from management is becoming increasingly clear. One thing will always stay constant in the ever-changing healthcare industry: nurse leadership has a direct impact on an organization’s drive, performance, and people (caregivers and patients alike). Scully, (2015).

My goal is to obtain a good knowledge of leadership qualities and take up a leadership role in the near future. As a GCU student doing RN-BSN program I am sure that it can lead me to have my dream of becoming a Nurse leadership, soon. It is the first steppingstone in the realm of leadership. The present class helps me to have a promising idea about the theoretical part of Nursing leadership and management positions. Overall, the past experiences in the clinical field and the observation of our current leaders and managers is an asset in this field. I believe that I can achieve it through the current knowledge and practice as well as through continuing education.

Leadership is a quality of influencing and inspiring people, in other to be able to willingly achieve a goal or an objective, (Surbhi, 2018). A leader must lead by example, because they have people watching them and people they are leading and directing. Whereas management is a discipline of managing things in the best possible manner. According to Surbhi 2018, he says that management is a combination of four terms, i.e., man+age+men+t (technique), which refers to a technique that is used by man for dealing with and managing people of different age group and working together to achieving a common objective. Management involves planning, leading, controlling, coordinating, organizing and staffing (Surbhi, 2018). However, qualities of a manager require leadership skills to inspire their subordinate.

 

Nursing leadership and management are both necessary roles that are vital to the long-term success of all health care organizations (Whitney, 2018).

 

The goals of management and leadership overlap in many ways, which include clear lines of communication, critical thinking, time management, organization skills and wanting the best for the department. For example, when a manager and a leader need to make decision about a staff for employment or promotion, both the leader and the management will discuss and decide on what to do. Also, nurses can be a manager and a leader at the same time in other to promote patients’ health, when management is helping on the financial aspect of patients care or insurance, the leader is delegating appropriate staff to care for the patient with task within their power and the leader, also leading by example.

 

As a leader in nursing department and been part with the management, I will advocate for nurses about the need and requirement. In other to make the department better, as a leader I know what the people wanted and what is lacking in the department or setting I will communicate their needs and ensure to discuss how they can help in organization of seminar that will increase nurses’ knowledge in other to promote the way they care for patients for quick and productive result.
