Describe 1 or 2 things you will do to stay active as an RN in the policy arena. What do you need to make this happen?
How have you grown as an RN?
-How to advocate for others as a nurse by been active in the policy arena. This was my biggest problem, now I can say I can manage to work through it.
– as a health care professional, I must know how our government work with health care. I was not aware of anything before this course, now I know how to navigate the policy, and if I have questions, I know to contact my state senators and other government officials. I think it is especially important as a nurse to know all this thing if we want to advocate for our patients and families.
– the last one is a leadership part of it. As a new nurse manager, I learned a lot how to lead and how I can be a source for my staff, not only I learn from the course, I also learn a lot from my class mates. Reading their discussion post was one of the best educational process for me. I think in few weeks I got more knowledge to help me for my new leadership position thank ever.
Actually, it is better than my expectation. I learned what I want to learn, and more. Them reading materials are remarkably interesting, I want to be a better leader and educator, I think I put my feet one step forward. I cannot wait for the next course what to bring.
My personal strengths really showed me a lot about myself that I might not describe as it did on the assessment. I always look things to the positive side of it, even the worst situations I must see the positive outcome, and I always give positive feedbacks. My Learner side of me, I knew for years how much I love to learn and give buck what I have. The love of learning is the one thing puts me to choose education as my track for MSN. I believe as nurses we learn every single day from our everyday life, but also grow in education is a key for me, to serve my patients and community. It gives me an opportunity to be a resource for my staff, patients, and families. I think knowing my strength gave more confidence to pursue and continue my education.
Q4 as a nurse I think we need to be involved in policy making, especially when it comes to health care. As I said it before, the main reason I usually went to vote is because of the health care system failure in America. I think if we nurse involve more, we can make a difference. I will try to involve on our district school and state legislation from now on. I used to think what is my voice, how much change can I make? Now I know if I have a good argument, I can have a chance to change or produce a legislation. And as a nurse leader I am sure I will be involved in so many policies making also. The only thing I need to make this happen is just use what I learn from this course and a little courage.
Q5. As an RN I grow tremendously, if it wasn’t for this course, I don’t even know how I would of handle the new position that I took as a beginning of this course. It gives me confidence to put my head up and take the challenge as it comes. Strategies that I learn from this course saved me a lot of hardship for sure. I grow to the better. It is a start but again it is great start.
