Write a 3-4 page analysis that assesses your professional
development needs as a nurse leader.
Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other,

For professional nurse-leaders, effective communication
skills are essential for interprofessional teamwork and collaboration. Kelly
and Tazbir (2014) emphasize the importance of this interaction:
Interprofessional teamwork and collaboration among staff
nurses and other disciplines in the health care setting are so critical to
optimizing patient care safety and outcomes that they are a priority for most
health care administrators, directors, and managers (p. 140).
Successful leadership strategies are based on a leader’s
strengths, the situation, the environment, and the stakeholders involved.
Developing a plan for professional development is integral in developing leadership
and management skills.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will
demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and
assessment criteria:
Competency 1: Integrate key nursing leadership, management,
and communication concepts into collaborative practice situations.
Differentiate between leadership and management.
Explain key nursing leadership, management, and
communication concepts that facilitate collaboration and support interprofessional
teams.
Describe a personal leadership and communication style.
Identify skills or areas for future professional
development.
Competency 5: Communicate in manner that is consistent with
the expectations of a nursing professional.
Write content clearly and logically, with correct use of
grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and current APA style.

Context
Throughout its history, nursing has relied on ethical
principles to serve as guidelines in determining patient care (Kelly &
Tazbir, 2014, p. 395). Health care leaders have the responsibility to create an
ethically principled environment that upholds the professional standards.
According to Kelly and Tazbir (2014), “Ethics is the branch of philosophy
that concerns the distinction of right from wrong, based on a body of
knowledge, not just based on opinions” (p. 395).
