It is quite challenging to be a nurse nowadays as you do not only have to ensure patients safety but also yourself and that is what I faced when I graduated as a nurse. I as a Leader knows take the responsibility in my shoulders and with a goal will lead from the front knowing the job ahead to proof a point. The nursing is a mission, which is to provide the best and high quality medical facilities and care and to maintain, and improvement in community health. It is also considered a very important and essential part of all health practices, including the nursing care. Therefore, it also plays a central role in good behaviour of the nurses towards their patients, and which strongly influences the rapid improvement of the concerned patient's health. Professional practices constitute legitimate way or rather a standard that is governed in a proper and a professional way of both the client and their family (García et al., 2016). In fact, professional way of dealing addresses the obligations of a profession towards people who receive services in daily basis.
A vital part of nursing is to respect for human values, its rights and dignity (Freimann and Merisalu, 2015). From a clinical point of view, nursing care has three basic principles which is communication, collaboration and self care. Vision point of view is that out five elements that are fundamental to nursing, which includes nursing knowledge, which is the most important, then nursing art, right individual knowledge, nursing ethics and obviously socio-political knowledge, I knew that to successfully commence a nursing career these are the things I have to follow.
As Kim was a registered nurse who graduated from the University of Technology Sydney in 2018, she had undertaking a Transition to Practice program at a tertiary hospital in western Sydney. Halfway through her program she got involved in a cardiac arrest on the ward. Fortunately, the patient was successfully resuscitated and transferred to the Intensive Care Unit. The resuscitation went smoothly, had anything would go wrong she would have been in trouble as legal action could have been taken against her as a part of negligence in her duty. These types of challenges will come where she has to deal it carefully on whatever steps she takes, as dealing with patients is not easy but these challenges will come in this profession.
Regardless of the likenesses in the desires for graduates the expectation level is very high, the distinctions persevere in the normal degree of training is with enrolled attendants who ought to be set up to think about the patients with more noteworthy keenness and accept it in more elevated amounts of duty than enlisted graduate medical attendants. The steps of Gibbs Reflective Cycle have been implemented here.
Step 1: Description
As Kim was a registered nurse who graduated from the University of Technology Sydney, she had undertaking a Transition to Practice program at a tertiary hospital in western Sydney. Halfway through her program she got involved in a cardiac arrest on the ward. Fortunately, the patient was successfully resuscitated and transferred to the Intensive Care Unit.
Step 2: Feelings
What are you thinking and feeling?
Kim was feeling hopeless, useless, and incompetent as a nurse. These thoughts and feelings are causing her ongoing distress and embarrassment, damaging her confidence level, affecting her ability to conduct her practices and her duty everyday, and getting difficult to perform her nursing tasks. For the first time in her career, she was considering to leaving.

Gaining knowledge normally comprises four fundamentals. The first element is self knowledge. In nursing profession it is important to have general knowledge. Good leaders have a high degree in self consciousness in nursing profession (Dong et al., 2017). Gaining knowledge of other things is also important. The more someone knows about their colleagues at each stage, the more effectual they can be in working with them to reach general objectives. Gaining knowledge contains about the nursing industry. Final step is to know the field of leadership. Discover the abundance of blogs, books and other information present about the leadership to explore trends and best practices (Smith, 2016).
According to Dartey-Baah, (2015) effective leadership needs knowing the communication skill with different teams inside the nursing industry, including staffs, customers, leaders and stakeholders. Every team may need a various communication as well as leadership process and though leaders should be capable to adapt founded on the team they are communicating with at the instance. Good leadership communication is easy. Communicate simply and clearly about the goals and objectives. Leaders make every person important through their communication skill. Strong leaders are apparent in their communications (Martin, 2016). Communication process is a two way process. Listen to the perspectives of the team members is another important thing in leadership process in the nursing industry. Effectual listening assists someone to make relationships, solve the issues, make sure understanding as well as develop accuracy (Kiersch and Peters, 2017). The communicators never suppose that the message individual heard id the real one they planned to transport. Inspire the team members is another way in leadership process. As a leader someone require to be capable to clearly and succinctly explain to the staffs everything from the company’s goals to the works. Leaders should know all forms of communication containing departmental, one on one and full staff communications and communication through the phone, social media and email. A huge portion of communication engages listening.
By looking at our qualities, I can take a stock of what pushes us ahead in our profession. These qualities might be character attributes being profoundly sorted out and proficient, yet they likewise might be outer variables that engage us like an awesome life partner and home life, a strong gathering of companions, a trust subsidize available to us, our qualities drive us, prop us up, enable our progress ahead and increase an amazing value (Yue and Peng, 2018).
Likewise with qualities, our shortcomings might be inner confusion, absence of centre or outer consistent clash with your mate, a tumultuous home condition. Your shortcomings might be diversions, or they may effectively keep you from achieving the subsequent stage. Understanding your shortcomings is foremost (Biancamaria et al., 2016).
Openings come in different appearances. An open door may be an associate who offers me to be a guide; another may be the opportunity to work abroad where I will adapt better approaches for moving toward general issues (Ervural et al., 2018). Openings might be enormous or rather unpretentious; our activity which is to remember them and exploit those that will serve us the most.
Dangers are not exactly shortcomings; however a portion of our shortcomings can progress toward becoming dangers (Barksby et al., 2015). For example, a crumbling marriage will surely influence our capacity to concentrate on our expert improvement, and a contrary individual propensity could be seen as a risk, too. In the mean time, the cutting back of our working environment might be a wild outward factor that compromises our activity.
Elements in effective Leadership
1. Ability to delegate tasks
Frequently, pioneers are fussbudgets: they have a specific vision and they need to drive their staff, and their organization, to arrive at that vision. However, as a general rule, everybody could utilize some assistance, and the best chiefs and pioneers are those that perceive that they also are human.
2. Excellent communication
Staff should have the option to get a handle on the reason, the bearings, and the true objective of any task with the end goal for it to be finished effectively. Without phenomenal relational abilities, administrators will have an amazingly troublesome time setting up and keeping up a profitable workplace.
Leaders are relied upon to be the organization's spine by being solid and sure. Chiefs are required to help and bring an association through both the great occasions and the awful, while as yet showing a self-assured and positive disposition. In the event that an undertaking's head keeps on showing certainty in spite of challenges, representatives will keep on inclination agreeable and secure, and the work climate will stay cool and roused.
An amazingly necessary part of compelling authority is genuineness. At the point when a pioneer creates an impression or takes a specific choice, all colleagues must have the option to accept that the pioneer will finish and keep their assertion.
Despite the fact that we as a whole endeavor to hit targets, in some cases things don't go as arranged. Unforeseen occasions happen that expect acclimations to be settled on to past choices that were made, or current game plans and think imaginatively to concoct stable arrangements, as staff go to them for help and direction. Whenever actualized, these characteristics improve in-house correspondence, worker confidence, and fortify organization culture and leadership plan.
It is concluded from this assignment that, there are many issues and factors present which impact on nursing leaders as well as professional practice. There are many clinical leadership expectations for beginning new graduate nurses. It is stated that Gibbs model described the strategies and improve personal and professional resilience.
