    Peplau’s theory focuses on health education and building upon what the patient already knows, which is essential in nursing practice. Attentive listening and counseling skills are implemented in this theory as well (Penckofer, Byrn, Mumby, & Ferrans, 2011).

According to Duncan and Dephew "A LVN has completed certain aspects of these expectations, but in becoming an RN, the role expectations are expanded" (Duncan & Depew, 2011, p.38). Another commonality shared between an LVN and an RN is the constant continuation of education to stay updated with all the new knowledge and skills in their scope of practice.

As a nurse, it is important to play a role in how he or she interacts with the patient as well as in the health care field.

Nursing will continue to be my choice of career because I want to provide unconditional support to all patients. There is no better feeling that to be appreciated for the care given to a patient.…

    It is imperative to stay up to date with the clinical, technical, and communicational knowledge because the healthcare profession is constantly changing and improving. Continuing education demonstrates the ability to problem solve and use clinical judgment to improve the quality and safety of the patient and health care system.

    Nursing Leadership Skills

    This essay has discussed and critically debated the leadership role of the registered nurse in delivering quality and safe nursing care by focusing on essential leadership skills such as effective communication, patient centred care and continuous professional development. Effective communication when working positively provides the patient and their team of nurses and doctors to all be involved in the care and all have a level of understanding of expectations, wants and needs. When effective communication is not being used successfully, patients and family members may feel they are only communicated with when something really terrible is happening or they might be too afraid to ask questions. Patient centred care when working positively also allows the patient to feel part of the team, part of the decision making process, and this can be seen with the implementation of bedside handovers. Poor communication and working in unfamiliar settings/wards are both negative factors which decrease the likelihood of patient centred care being delivered effectively.…
