from birth to end of life.oCollapse SubdiscussionBetsy MathewBetsy MathewFeb 21, 2018Feb 21, 2018 at 9:06pmManage Discussion EntryDr. Kevin and Class,When I started this class, I really didn't know what to expect. I knew what an undergraduate leadership class in nursing was like, but this one was completely different. Professional Value #4 is a topic that was reinforced for me throughout this class. As nurses, our first priority is to advocate and maintain safety for the patient. However, if a nurse has not identified her own values and beliefs, it may be difficult to care for another and understand where they come from. Introspection should be utilized in every patient encounter, otherwise biases and judgment can show through, hindering the nurse-patient relationship. Through the case studies, I was able to get a better grasp on the MSN Essential II. The case studies presented us with a variety of difficult work environment situations that could very well arise in our future professional lives. Critically thinking through those has helped me understand the relationships and hierarchy of organizational leadership that keeps the hospital or clinic setting functioning like a well-oiled machine. Both of these outcomes helped me best understand NP Core Competency #2. Although leadership has been taught in this course, leadership is something that is learned with experience and various situations in the professional setting. I have been able to understand hownurses can influence change in our profession through the various assignments completed in this

course, and I hope that I will continue to grow as a leader in my current workplace and my future as a FNP.

I feel that to truly gain the good qualities of a leader you must experience working with others and building relationships. As a nurse you must be able to make good judgement calls and help other nurses and team members in accomplishing patient care tasks. Great Post!oAllison HundleyAllison HundleyFeb 21, 2018Feb 21, 2018 at 9:48pmManage Discussion EntryHi Dr Letz and class, As our time together closes, I have learned a lot about myself and the state that I work for in which the requirements are for the NP role. I learned several things throughout the past 8 weeks and I truly think that this class will help me come with the needs and desires that I have with becoming a NP. I have learned a valuable lesson within this class and am glad to have been a part of it. I appreciate every single one of your discussions and interactions with me, as well as others within the classroom and feel like the vast array of knowledge that I have gained throughout these last several weeks. I appreciate every one of you and I wish you all the successin the future!
