Nurses Urged to Examine Their Changing Role



At the Nursing Management Congress in Las Vegas, attendees are urged to focus on what's most important in the changing face of care delivery. Nurse leaders must identify the parts of the job nurses do that have value—and the parts that don't belong in the role.

Tim is on the money with not relying on the most experinced nurses to provide orientation. This is validated by Benners Novice to Expert work. The expert nurse often loses the ability to articulate the why of what they do. An advanced beginner or proficient nurse still executes tasks thoughtfully and can recall the reason why they are doing what they do.

Amen! I'm an "old nurse" but I never fail to learn from the students and the new graduates. They have so much to offer in technology and we have so much to offer regarding regarding intuition, the platnum rule, and the "new" social etiquette among other things. Mentoring is a good thing, transformational leadership and education through andragogy is awesome! Thanks for the article Ms.Hendren!
