Nahavandi, A. (2014). The art and science of leadership (7th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson.

Having a Public Health Leadership Theory is essential to any public health leader. With a well-constructed theory, you integrate leadership perspectives into practice in order to offer solutions to public health problems. Also, with a visual representation of your theory, you may present another way to highlight your research with effective design and theory implementation.

For this Project Assignment, you complete another part of your Public Health Leadership Theory based upon your understanding of leadership perspectives you have reviewed in this course. In addition, you must use a systems thinking approach in the development of your visual representation of your personal Public Health Leadership Theory. As you post your visual representation, you may find using a computer scanner helpful in scanning your image and attaching it to your post.

The Assignment (3–4 pages):

This week you will provide a visual representation of your public health leadership theory. It can be a table, schematic diagram, graph, or any other representation you choose. Please feel free to be creative. However, the focus MUST be on leadership. Be sure to provide a narrative explanation that shows how the developed theory can close the “gap” identified in the first part of the project. Additionally explain how it incorporates system thinking. Remember your theory can be based on those that we have learned about or your own. There is no wrong theory. What matters is the explanation of how it addresses the gap and uses system thinking. While this doesn’t have to be addressed now, keep in mind the last part of the project will involve presenting a methodology that tests the developed theory empirically. Let’s help one another with the project. Post your questions and thoughts in the “Contact the Instructor” area. Please feel free to weigh in on your colleagues comments.

Introduction
In Chapter 4 of the text, we learned that a market is in equilibrium when the demand curve intersects with the supply curve. The general notion in Economics is that when a market is in equilibrium, the desires of consumers are considered to be aligned with those of suppliers, and there is an efficient use of resources in the market. These conditions, however, do not always prevail in the market. There are times when there is, what is known as, a disequilibrium condition in the market. Under this condition, there is either a surplus or a shortage in the market. A surplus occurs when there is an excess of supply of a commodity over the quantity demanded. A shortage, on the other hand, is a situation where the quantity demanded of a product exceeds the supply of the product.

The preponderance of evidence in the market for the services provided by nurses is that there is an issue of perennial shortages that has lasted for several decades. Ms. Roberta Spohn, Assistant Executive Secretary of the American Nurses’ Association, Research and Statistics Unit, stated that “Although there are reports of manpower shortages in many other professional fields, nursing seems to enjoy the dubious distinction of continually suffering from this condition” (Spohn, 1954, p.865).

Use the “Individual Success Plan” to develop a personal plan for completing your practice hours and how topic objectives will be met. Include the number of hours you plan to set aside to meet your goals.

Planning is the key to successful completion of this course and your overall program of study. The Individual Success Plan (ISP) assignment requires early collaboration with the course faculty and your course mentor. You will need to establish a plan for successful completion of (1) deliverables associated with weekly course objectives, (2), required practice immersion hours, and (3) deliverables associated with your capstone project.

Access the “Individual Success Plan” resource in the Topic Materials. Read the information in the resource, including student expectations and instructions for completing the ISP document.

Use the “Individual Success Plan” to develop a personal plan for completing your practice hours and how topic objectives will be met. Include the number of hours you plan to set aside to meet your goals.

A combination of 100 supervised clinical hours in community health and leadership areas will be obtained through the application of the objectives listed in the Guidelines for Undergraduate Field Experiences manual.

Practicum immersion experiences are required in a community health setting. Community-based settings should encourage community integration and involvement; expand accessibility of services and supports; promote personal preference, strengths, dignity; and empower people to participate in the economic mainstream.

According to HealthyPeople.gov, educational and community-based programs and strategies are designed to reach people outside of traditional health care settings. These settings may include schools, worksites, health care facilities, and communities. Community health and leadership practice immersion can occur in the same site and in conjunction with the evidence-based project in the NRS-490 course.

If you are a registered nurse in Washington, your practicum experience must include a minimum of 50 hours in a community health setting.

Students should apply concepts from prior courses to critically examine and improve their current practice. Students should also integrate scholarly readings to develop case reports that demonstrate increasingly complex and proficient practice.

Consider the challenges you expect to encounter as you continue the practice hour and competency requirements throughout this course. How might you overcome these challenges?

You can renegotiate these deliverables with your faculty and mentor throughout this course and update your ISP accordingly.

Once your ISP has been developed and accepted by your course faculty, you will have your course mentor sign it at the beginning of, and upon completion of, each assignment that incorporates practice immersion hours. You will track all course practice immersion hours in the ISP.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

lay the groundwork for creating and developing a team for your unit, department, or health care setting. You also identify leadership strategies that you could employ to increase the team’s organizational effectiveness.

Discussion: Creating, Developing, and Leading Effective Teams

A critical skill for all nurse managers is the ability to create, develop, and lead effective teams. When people are part of an effective and well-functioning team, they are more productive and have a stronger commitment to the organization. Nurse managers have a responsibility to create teams that fulfill functional needs within their units or departments. These can include leadership teams, ad hoc project teams, or primary work teams.

As a nurse manager, there is a variety of ways that you can enhance team functioning. The first step is developing the structural elements of the team and then designing the team with the appropriate membership. Just as you must critically examine each application during the employment process, so will you critically examine the skills and attributes of each employee before appointing him or her to a collective team.

In this week’s Discussion, you lay the groundwork for creating and developing a team for your unit, department, or health care setting. You also identify leadership strategies that you could employ to increase the team’s organizational effectiveness.

To prepare

  • Review Chapter 5, “The Art of Effectively Facilitating Processes” from the course text, From Management to Leadership: Strategies for Transforming Health Care. Carefully examine the section, “Essential Elements of a Team” to identify the six steps of creating an effective team.
  • Consider a team you might create for your current organization or one with which you are familiar. For example, is there a project to be accomplished or a problem to be solved? Perhaps there is a need for a leadership team within your unit or department?
  • Identify the purpose or goal for your team. Then, reflect on the following questions:
    • What type of team would you create (leadership, ad hoc, or primary work team) to accomplish this purpose or goal? What are the benefits or disadvantages of creating this type of team?
    • What staff members would you want on this team? Why? How could their skill sets and positions make them effective team members?
  • Explore this week’s Learning Resources to identify leadership strategies you might employ before, during, and after the team-building phase. For example, what leadership strategies might influence synergy among team members while also increasing the effectiveness of the team?

Post a description of the team you would create, including the purpose or goal the team would serve, the team type, and the specific skills each member would contribute as well as their job positions. Describe at least two leadership strategies you could implement to help this team effectively achieve its purpose or goal.

create an 8-page paper (excluding title page, references, and Appendices) addressing the following items looking through the lens of the Staff Development Educator, the Community Health-Based Educator, or the Academic Nurse Educator (choose only one educator perspective through which to view the scenario).

Assignment 2: Part 2 – Case Study: Basic Cardiac Life Support

As a nurse educator, you are responsible for preparing a clinically-proficient and culturally-competent nursing workforce through nursing education. In addition, you are expected to promote excellence in patient care and safe patient outcomes through patient education.

Motivating learners is the key to achieving learning outcomes. The motivational strategies that you use will help determine the successes or failures of the learning experience. Both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation can foster active learning and develop professional expertise in your learners. However, it is important to strike a balance between both approaches.

In the scenario below, you will use emerging technologies to keep learners engaged and interested. Using technology in classrooms, clinics, or community education centers can be an efficient and effective alternative to conventional learning.

You will create an 8-page paper (excluding title page, references, and Appendices) addressing the following items looking through the lens of the Staff Development Educator, the Community Health-Based Educator, or the Academic Nurse Educator (choose only one educator perspective through which to view the scenario).

Scenario: Basic Cardiac Life Support

You are working for a facility that has just purchased a $60,000 simulation mannequin. As you read the instructions, you find out that the modules you need to teach basic cardiac life support (BCLS) were not included in the simulator purchase. You find that the simulator cannot be used to its fullest potential because the interactive EKG and AED modules have not been purchased. You learn from the director of nursing education that there was not enough money in the budget to purchase the entire package. You are told that you must “make do” with what has been purchased to teach a class of 30 leaners of varying ages and diverse backgrounds.

  1. Explain how will you deal with motivational issues in this diverse learning group.
  2. How will you discover intrinsic motivating factors to help the various members of your audience learn the material that you plan to present?
  3. Determine what possible issues related to resistant learners may you encounter.
  4. Assess how will you manage the resistant learner.
  5. What are the possible programs on BCLS support that you can design using this simulation mannequin, despite the limitations imposed on you?
  6. Outline the advantages of using this simulation package to teach BCLS.
  7. Determine the limitations of using a simulation mannequin, which does not have an interactive EKG and AED modules, to teach BCLS.
  8. Plan how can you overcome these limitations.
  9. Construct a method to evaluate your learners with a percentage to pass.
