Reflection Journal – Week 15

November 21, 2019   

1. What did you actually learned from the unit.

Risk management as a nurse leader is a big responsibility and a large part of our job. As nurse leaders, there will be many factors of risk that we will have to manage regarding both patients and staff. Handling different legal concerns is another big responsibility of the nurse leader. Both of these responsibilities take a lot of problem solving and multiple people on board to make final decisions that affect everyone involved.

2. Discuss your feelings/experiences from the team activities? Did it change your opinion on the subject? If so, how? If not, why?

My feelings didn’t change much from the team activities because we all had very similar ideas of how to manage the situation at hand. We all agreed in different ways that a bottom line solution to this problem is better education to reduce the risk of harm to our patients. 

3. How you will utilize the information learned in your nursing practice.

I will utilize this information by reaching out to the proper people to provide the best care for my patients and staff. As a nurse leader, it would be my responsibility to reduce the risk of harm to both patients and staff, and I need to be able to utilize multiple people to make decisions on how to manage legal situations I come across. 

4. You personal feelings about the material covered.

Risk management and legal responsibilities are responsibilities of a nurse leader I think we underestimate. These are very big responsibilities of a nurse leader, and it is up to them to reduce risk to everyone and up to them to help solve legal concerns that they come across.

Reflective Journal – Week 13

November 11, 2019   

1. What did you actually learned from the unit.

I learned that resolving conflict can be very difficult. A lot of times conflict also builds up and is harder to resolve as everyone’s emotions and feelings get involved.

2. Discuss your feelings/experiences from the team activities? Did it change your opinion on the subject? If so, how? If not, why?

The team activities weren’t as insightful as there was yet again very minimal involvement. It was interesting to see how someone else would negotiate more benefits for employees. 

3. How you will utilize the information learned in your nursing practice.

I learned that resolving conflict can be a multi-step process. Sometimes with negotiation it will take talking with multiple people and have many consequences. With interpersonal conflict it will simply take communication to resolve the conflict.

4. You personal feelings about the material covered.

Resolving conflict is hard and not my favorite part of life in general. I have learned however that resolving conflict early on rather than letting things fester is the best way to resolve conflict in the end.

Reflective Journal – Week 11

November 10, 2019   

1. What did you actually learned from the unit.

I learned that strategic planning is hard. It is something I am going to be faced with in my career, so it was good to learn a little bit about it.

2. Discuss your feelings/experiences from the team activities? Did it change your opinion on the subject? If so, how? If not, why?

The team activities were good, although there was little participation. I think that it was interesting to learn from the other team about their strategies around building healthcare in their town. I think it was good to hear others’ opinions about what programs should be put in our school at UVU.

3. How you will utilize the information learned in your nursing practice.

I have learned that I will reach out to others when I am faced with strategic planning. I have such different ideas from other people and I can learn a lot from their perspective. 

4. You personal feelings about the material covered.

Strategic planning is just hard. It is something I don’t personally love, but I will do it to ensure that I can meet the needs of the nurses and community around me.
