RESPONSE 1 Great post Jamie. I liked how you related the hospital's mission and vision to its stakeholders. According to Curron and Totten (2010), it is essential that organizations understand who their primary stakeholders are and identify what they want and need from the organization (p. 116). Stakeholders can be affected by the policy decisions of an organization and can also influence the decisions and actions of an organization (Cherry & Jacob, 2014). Marquis and Huston states “stakeholders may have a supportive and threatening influence on organizational decision making” (p. 274). The mission, vision, and values tell you a lot about the organization's stakeholders and how it plans to meet the needs of their stakeholders. I think that nurse leaders (the organization's board) play a crucial role in helping their hospital recognize who their key stakeholders are. This is because nurse leaders come with a significant amount of knowledge on the day to day experience and challenges in providing nursing care. Boards can help develop a clear mission, vision and value statement that focuses on meeting the needs of stakeholders (Curron & Totten, 2010).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
