How would you summarize the arguments for changing or not changing the nursing entry level?

Please answer the following Discussion Question.  Please be certain to answer the three questions on this week DQ and to provide a well-developed and complete answer to receive credit.  Also, please ensure to have read the assigned chapters for the current week.

Q 1: Case Study, Chapter 1, Entry Into Practice: The DThe entry-into-practice debate in the United States continues to be one of the oldest and hottest professional issues nurses face as we enter the second decade of the 21st century. It appears that little progress has been made since 1965 in creating a consensus to raise the entry level into professional nursing practice, although experts do not agree even on that issue. Your neighbors ask you for information about considerations for selection of an appropriate nursing eduhild.

1. Your neighbor is confused because both ADN and BSN schools preparing graduates for RN licensure meet similar criteria for state board approval and have roughly the same number of nursing coursework units. How would you summarize the arguments for changing or not changing the nursing entry level?

2. There is current evidence-based research that explores the impact of registered nurse educational level on patient outcomes. What does the current evidence-based research conclude about the impact of RN educational level on patient outcomes?

3. Achieving the BSN as the entry degree for professional nursing practice will take the best thinking of our nursing leaders. What will it require in order to successfully achieve the BSN as the entry degree for professional nursing practice?

Determine what it takes to succeed in the organization

Nursing Leadership Interview:

You will select and interview (in person, face to face) a nursing leader relevant to the designated specialty role of choice (e.g. Nursing Director, Nursing Professor, Nurse Entrepreneur, etc.) that would hire a BSN prepared nurse. Both the  assignment-required questions, as well as critically developed questions of your own creation will be incorporated. Audio-record the interview so that you may progress through the interview in a timely manner and actively participate in the discussion (this is not possible if you are trying to write the conversation down as it occurs). You will need to obtain written permission from this leader (prior to the interview) that the interview may be audio-recorded for your use in writing the interview paper. See interview consent form in Unit 3. The interview should last approximately 30 minutes.

The paper will begin with a brief introduction of the leader being interviewed and will proceed to the questions asked and answers received. The paper will need to conclude with a summative evaluation of the interview process. This information will address such elements as your critical analysis and evaluation of the interview process, information about your current personal professional status and resultant plans for possible professional mentorship within the selected organization. This 2-3 page paper will be written in 6th edition APA format including references. Review how to cite personal communications using APA format. The paper will need to be submitted through the course drop box by the due date.

How do you think we can improve this understanding of the nurse practitioner role?

Topics to review during our first week of the course:

 How Healthcare reform is impacting primary care https://www.ajmc.com/contributor/sophiabernazzani/2016/03/howhealthcarereformisimpactingprimarycare 

•  Healthcare reform 101: What the health is going on in 2018? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwTWhwWLzHQ  

•  Healthcare Transformation and Changing Roles for Nursing https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5266427/pdf/ornur3612.pdf

Propose methodologies that have been proven to increase value in health care delivery systems

Imagine that you are a senior consultant at Practical Health Care Consulting firm. Your supervisor has instructed you to spend three (3) months at the Caring Angel Hospital to help improve the quality of care, add value to the organization, improve employee morale, design an efficient organizational chart, create a strong team environment, and create the hospital’s competitive advantage. The hospital has traditionally made losses year after year. Furthermore, it is not performing well financially, and the banks are not willing to lend it large sums of money for more effective marketing.

After spending two (2) months within the hospital, you are very happy with your progress, and you think you are capable of acquiring more patient base and expanding the hospital market. However, with a closer look, you notice that your patients are still hopping from one specialized hospital to another in search of various specialized treatments. You also notice that the seats are not comfortable in the waiting area, and the patients continuously show up for appointments on the wrong dates. The nurses and the employees are not smiling during patient conversations, and everyone looks for ways to blame others for failures in the patient treatment process. Everyone seems to work alone and hide what they do from their colleagues.

At the end of the three (3) month period, you must provide a report with your recommended strategies designed to help Caring Angel Hospital achieve its goals. Note: You may create and / or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.

  • Improve employee morale
  • Design an efficient organizational chart
  • Create a strong team environment
  • Create the hospital’s competitive edge.
