EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION: THE NURSE 2 Introduction Effective nursing communication is essential to provide good patient centered care. Without effective communication, nursing care can be compromised and result in adverse situations. Being a good listener is a big part of effective communication. In order to achieve effective communication, everyone’s opinions are important and should be considered when making decisions. A problem that nurses encounter is ineffective communication between the health care team, due to a lack of respect and a disregard by some team members to consider everyone’s opinion on the health care team. Relationships In any kind of relationship, whether it be a romantic, platonic, or even just an acquaintance, effective communication is essential to keep the relationship growing. Even those who are in marriages and relationships are asked what are top qualities for success, communication is always on the list. Poor communication can result in distrust, miscommunication, confusion, and hinder the relationship. Relationships are essential to life. Nobody is an island! At some point everyone is going to come into contact with someone. The same is true with other workers in the health care field. Effective communication is essential to ensure the best possible patient outcomes. Effective communication between all members of the health care team allows everyone to express their opinions, such as in brainstorming to come up with new ideas and approaches for the plan of care.

    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.
