NURS 6053 week 1 Response #1Good post this week. Organizational culture as described by Marquis & Huston, is the value and behaviors that contribute to the unique social and psychological environment (2017). Organizational culture is best represented by the behavioral norms and expectations that characterize a work environment. These norms and expectations direct the way employees in a particular work environment approach their work, specify priorities, and shape the way work is done. Proficient organizational cultures, for examples, expect service providers to be up to date on state-of-the-art practices and to place positive client outcomes as a top priority (Gershon, Stone, Bakken, & Larson, 2014).Organizational climate, on the other hand, is created by employees’ shared perceptions of the psychological impact of their work environment on their own personal well-being and functioning (Gershon et al., 2014). The perceptions that are shared by employees in a given workenvironment represent an agreement in their personal appraisals of the meaning and significance of their work. The perceived impact of a work environment on each individual worker's personal well-being has been labeled psychological climate (Gershon et al., 2014).ReferencesGershon, R. R., Stone, P. W., Bakken, S., & Larson, E. (2014). Measurement of organizational culture and climate in healthcare. Journal of Nursing Administration, 34(1), 33-40. Retrieved from Marquis, B. L., & Huston, C. J.

NURS 6053 Response #2I appreciate your post this week. I agree that organizational foundations play a critical role in an organization and what it stands for. Per Marquis & Hutson (2015), the purpose of a mission statement is to explain why an organization exists and to address its position regarding their ethics, principles, and standards of practice. It is also a great resource for potential employees to consider when choosing a place for employment along with viewing the organization's values. It is known that values have a direct influence on perceptions (Marquis & Hutson, 2015).I also agree that nurses should be treated more equitably and given more encouragement to do their jobs to the best of their abilities. In my facility, there are multiple procedures that we are trained to perform. However, we are not authorized to do so as it is considered being out of our scope of practice. I also agree that as a leader, it is important to distinguish accordingly to theculture and climate of an organization, as one influences the other. I feel that if an individual is employed by an organization that the person should assist in upholding the mission, vision, and values that the organization encompasses, this is also another struggle at my facility. Despite all the surrounding negativity in my area, I always attempt to remain optimistic and cheerful. After all, we see patients, sometimes, on the worst perceived day of their lives.
