Some companies use non-registered nurses as Case Managers.
1: Nursing may be affected by various factors.
Nursing can be affected by a variety of issues that arise every day.
In this instance, the nurse needed to visit patients in need in a crime-prone area. Fearing her husband would cause her to lose her job, she had to compromise her professional responsibilities.
2: Conflict resolution is essential for a mentor-mentee relationship.
This particular leader was successful in resolving this nurse’s issue.
It was admirable that she listened to the nurse and was able to understand her concerns (Elena Losa Iglesias and Becerro de Bengoa Valleyjo, 2012).
The nurse’s concern was also addressed by the leader. She tried to make the situation as helpful as possible for her and showed empathy.
Her efforts were appreciated and I gave her an 8.5.
3: The safety of the nurse in question was important because she would be visiting patients in a dangerous part of town.
An earlier collaboration between the mentor and the nurses that are intended to perform patient visits could have helped eliminate this issue (Elena Losa Iglesias & Becerro de Bengoa Valleyjo, 2012).
4: BSN, or Bachelor of Science in Nursing is a 4-year university program that enhances nurses’ practical knowledge of the nursing profession. (Reneau 2013).
This program focuses on leadership and management in healthcare.
The BSN program will allow nurses to develop the skills necessary to effectively manage conflict and lead (Reneau, 2013,).
