helps us visualize what the organization has asked us to make action plans, strategies, and tactics to change a practice. She also helps us bring ideas to senior management that we see needs to be changed on a practical level to make our units run more effectively, delivery higher quality patient care, or to implement new tools to help our team run safer or more effectively. The first essential for masters in nursing education is to be able to apply scientific findings into our nursing practice. One way Anne Marie achieves this is know the population base that we work closely with. She needs to have a good understanding of what quality improvement measures we need to take as an organization as well as service line to accomplish our goals of high quality patient care. She has to be dedicated to continually improving our nursing process, which means listening to the needs of the employees on the front line delivering the patient care and helping them overcome barriers that prevent them from delivering optimal patient care.

The fifth essential she needs to be well versed in is Informatics and Healthcare Technologies. It is very important to stay current in what electronic system is being used to chart and record patient care data. You need to be able to use several systems in the organization to help run reports to see and assess data to help drive actions to meet organizational goals This data can also be used to give you information about the population we are serving and help coordinate care for that population. Such as the need to have better screening and intervention to help those that are at risk or suffering from postpartum depression. Essential seven, Interprofessional Collaboration for Improving Patient and Population Health Outcomes and eight, Clinical Prevention and Population health for Improving Healthcare go together. Both of these are a huge part of Anne Marie’s job responsibilities. Nearly every meeting she attends is collaboration on how to make the outcomes for our patients better. This is in every area from patient experience/satisfaction, patient safety, patient education, short term outcomes, long term outcomes, for our moms, for our babies, the list goes on. It is a never ending planning, implementation, assessments, revision of plans cycle that goes on to help achieve our goals. Essential nine, Master's Level Nursing Practice is simply understanding and integrating these principles into practice. I believe I have proven in the above writing that each essential is an important part in what Anne Marie does in her role on a daily basis. In fact, through writing, I have come to realize that these essentials are a major factor in what I do every day in my position of

    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.
