What professional nursing organizations are you interested in or currently participate in?
I will be interested in the AANP eventually. I hope to obtain a Master’s degree in Nursing to become a Nurse Practitioner. The AANP is the largest and only full-service national professional membership organization for NPs of all specialties. It provides legislative leadership at the local, state, and federal levels to help advance health policy. It promotes excellence in practice, education, and research. AANP’s mission is every NP should be empowered to advance accessible, person-centered, equitable, high-quality health care for diverse communities through practice, education, advocacy, research and leadership. (AANP, 2022).
What nursing certifications or continuing education (graduate degree) might fit into your future plans?
I would like to achieve a Master’s in Nursing through a Nurse Practitioner Program. I am sure I will need to participate in many CEU’s to keep up on updated information.
Regarding your own transformational leadership skills, what aspect of the TEACH values discussed in the lesson do you think would most benefit your work environment if adopted? As a transformational leader, what action could you take to incorporate this chosen TEACH value into the work environment?
This is so hard to pick just one. I would like to think HEART is important though as a healthcare provider. HEART stands for serving with passion, respect, and care (Week 6 Lesson). If you’re going to be a healthcare provider, you must care about the patient you are about to treat. You must be respectful towards them, non-judgmental and honestly just want what is going to be best for them. After all, we should become providers because we want to help.
When you show you care it also keeps a positive atmosphere. Nurses and techs have more respect for healthcare providers that care and do not just do the bare minimum or push things off. It also creates a name for you within the community about how caring of a provider you are. This will also make the company your work for look good and they will also build up confidence from patients because of the quality providers they are employing.
