Compare and contrast the attributes of resilience to yourself and the characteristics of ethical leaders (courage, competence, compassion, commitment, candor, consistency, communication, and conviction of intuition) as you consider your leadership in nursing practice in your current work environment.
Consider the statement on page 122, “…individuals may become so entrenched in the culture in which they work that their moral code begins to incorporate elements of the host culture. What becomes normal clinical practice can violate compassionate, evidence-based care for patients in some unit/organizational culture” (Lachman, pl 122).
Consider the statement on page 22, “Staff members must remember that they aren’t infallible: perfection doesn’t exist when it comes to competency, performance and outcomes. However, nurses must remember that excellence does exist. Nurses should strive for ethical excellence when it comes to advocating for the safety and well-being of patients” (Smith, 2017).
As a nurse prepared with a baccalaureate degree and certificate in quality and safety, how you will demonstrate the characteristics of an ethical leader to advocate for the safety and well-being of your patients?
Look back at your transition through the RN-BS program, what learning experiences or activities have helped to foster you as a self-confident nurse with a strong moral code that demonstrates moral courage and ethical leadership?
Does your current practice setting, have a culture of safety that promotes high reliability on the front line? If not, as a leader at the bedside, how do you change that?
