Sherwood, G., & Barnsteiner, J. (2012). Quality and safety in Nursing: A competency approach to improving outcomes. Chichester, West Sussex: Wiley-Blackwell.
How does your current or former clinical environment maintain a culture of safety? How are errors reported and managed to improve quality? What suggestions would you make as a nurse leader to improve the culture of safety?
We are encourage to report all errors and near misses.
Review Appendix A, Sections I–V in Finkelman (2016).
Select one of the sections and share how your chief nurse executive demonstrates expertise in these competencies. Your comments should be about the “highest nursing leader” in your organization. Typically this is the leader who represents nurses and nursing to the governing board.
In your own words, explain the differences between a transactional nursing leader and a transformational nursing leader. What one is more like your Nurse Executive?
Describe how the Nurse Executive “leads the charge” for transformational leadership in an organization where you work or have done prelicensure clinical experiences.
