NSG 513 Week 2 Individual Assignment  Leadership Development Plan

 

 

Instructions:

The purpose of a leadership development plan is for leaders to develop

competencies that can bridge levels and functionalities in the

organization. This allows leaders to promote team engagement, and

provide purpose and direction for achieving their goals. Leadership

development programs are essential to managing a team when it

comes to planning and making the right decisions regarding

functionality across the organization. By developing a plan, leaders are

able to determine the skills of each staff member. As a result,

leadership can utilize the skills of the staff strategically when putting the

plan into action.

Develop a SWOT analysis on your organization. If you currently do not

work for a health care organization, use a health care facility where you

previously were employed.

Identify an area of weakness on which you will focus your Leadership

Development Plan.

Create a 525-word Leadership Development Plan addressing the

questions below.

  • What are the organization's perceived weaknesses?
  • How can you use the strengths identified in your Personal SWOT

Analysis to help the organization improve their weaknesses?

  • Which competencies (managerial and leadership) do you possess

and could use to address the issue?

  • How would you design your leadership development plan? Consider

combining several theories and models for developing your plan.

but don't have control over. For example, you are a bedside nurse

working in a hospital; one of your patients is expecting to be released

that day. The patient's doctor visits him every day before noon to check

allowed to go home the next day, to which his doctor responded that he

might be able to but it would depend on his progress. The following day,

the patient believed he was going be released by noon, since the doctor

always made his rounds before then. Unfortunately the doctor had an

emergency and wasn't able to check on the patient until later that

evening. Because of the doctor's absence, the patient's perception of

the quality of care he was receiving was distorted by this happening

and reacted by taking his frustration out on the nurse.

systems integration -- systems integration that will improve quality care

and outcomes in the organization. Utilize your research from the

Systems Research assignment on integrating processes within an

organization.

NSG 513 Week 5 Individual Assignment Leader Development Plan

 

Instructions:

Now that you reviewed the various competencies required of a

manager and of a leader, you should be able to identify which

proficiencies will be needed for future nurse leaders entering the field.

Create an improved Leader Development Plan that will include the

skillsets and characteristics that a leader in today's health care field

needs to succeed. Consider the competencies discussed in the

textbook that are essential for future nurse leaders.

Write a 525-word summary of the Leader Development Plan

incorporating the following:

  • Looking back at your Personal SWOT Analysis from Week 1, which

competencies would you consider to be skills that should be included in

the development plan?

  • The greater the depth of diversity in your organization will benefit the

organization proportionately. Consider the cultural diversity of those

entering the field now, how will you attract these candidates to your

organization? Remember that what appeal to someone of one culture

may not have any drawing power to someone from another culture.

  • What changes in nursing can broaden the appeal of new nurses

entering the field? Consider differences in generations, culture, and

skills.

  • Are there policies or regulations that keep people from even

considering a career in nursing. For example, in today's society it is

common and increasingly acceptable for people to have tattoos, but

there are regulations that bar a bedside nurse from having visible

tattoos. How can these types of policies and regulations be addressed

to come to a compromise?

NSG 513 Week 6 learning Team Assignment   Patient Satisfaction

 

 

Instructions:

Because nurses interact with patients more than any other medical

personnel, they play a key role in determining a patient's level of

satisfaction. In most cases, nurses have no control over the internal and

external factors that are the cause of a patient's discontent, nurses are

usually the recipients of the feedback and are expected to make

improvements. In this assignment, your team is to research and assess

the metrics for quality improvement in patient satisfaction.

As a team, identify a quality measure that is common for nurses to face,

but don't have control over. For example, you are a bedside nurse

working in a hospital; one of your patients is expecting to be released

that day. The patient's doctor visits him every day before noon to check

his status. The previous day, he had asked the doctor if he would be

allowed to go home the next day, to which his doctor responded that he

might be able to but it would depend on his progress. The following day,

the patient believed he was going be released by noon, since the doctor

always made his rounds before then. Unfortunately the doctor had an

emergency and wasn't able to check on the patient until later that

evening. Because of the doctor's absence, the patient's perception of

the quality of care he was receiving was distorted by this happening

and reacted by taking his frustration out on the nurse.

Discuss with your team how you would handle the issue that you have

selected. Use the questions below to drive discussion:

  • In what ways would the issue your team identified have a negative

impact on patient satisfaction?

  • Apply two different decision-making models to address the quality

measure to improve patient satisfaction.

  • Which leadership and managerial competencies will promote quality

improvement and organizational outcomes?

  • Identify the strategies that will promote interrelationship between

leadership, excellence, and professional integrity?

  • Which leadership theories, styles, and approaches would a nurse

leader need to employ to be successful in the current health care field

and in the future?

As a team, create 6- to 8-slide presentation using Microsoft®

PowerPoint® or a presentation tool of your choice. Include the following

in your presentation:

  • Illustrate how the quality measure your team selected could

undermine a patient's perception of the quality of care they are

receiving.

  • Explain your team's strategy to defuse the situation or to keep it from

escalating.

  • Integrate the conclusions your team came to while discussing the

questions above.

Provide in-text citations and references, on a separate slide, for all

sources cited; format according to APA guidelines.

NSG 513 Week 6 Individual Assignment   Succession Planning

 

As in any industry, any time a senior employee in a leadership position

retires, resigns, or leaves the organization for any other reason, the

consequences could be severe In health care, a senior leader has

spent years fulfilling the duties of the position, and during that time have

acquired an extensive knowledge on the area they oversee and the

goal of the organization. If that person leaves the organization abruptly

the position must be backfilled by someone who will have to learn the

ins and outs of the position over time, resulting in anything but a

seamless transition in leadership. The purpose of a succession plan is

to create appropriate training for employees that will prepare them to

step into these positions and perform the leadership responsibilities

with minimal disruption to the organization. This will ensure stability and

efficiency during times of stress.

Consider the following scenario: You have been promoted to a new

position and will be relocating. Your last responsibility in your current

position is to train your replacement.

Develop a Succession Plan for the employee who will replace you.

Consider using your current job as the basis for this assignment or any

job that you can discuss competently and with detail.

Analyze primary functions of the role (the job description).

Consider the following questions as you are developing your plan:

  • What is the organization's purpose and vision for this position?
  • What are the key gaps, or areas of improvement, in the position?
  • Are there any specific skills that are required for this position?
  • Does the position have responsibilities that can only be

accomplished by someone possessing a specific set of skills?

  • Are there strengths identified in your SWOT analysis that can be

used to prepare the new employee?

  • How will you implement your plan?
  • Which mentoring strategies will you use in your Succession Plan to

inspire your replacement to promote the organization's mission and

vision?

Write a 700-word summary of your Succession Plan and address the

questions above in your summary.
