Leadership Implications

“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
— Ronald Reagan
U.S. President (1981-1989)
Leadership is a critical role for advanced practice nurses. In order to be an effective leader, one must examine his or her role as an advanced practice nurse, and use his or her knowledge, and leadership skills to address issues related to his or her specialty area. There is a saying that one must know when to follow and when to lead. In order to be a good leader, you must also learn how to follow. As you transition from student to practicing NP, seek opportunities for mentorship to develop your leadership skills. Recognizing when to lead and when to follow is an interchangeable process that requires experience and preparation. The future for Americans in health care is unpredictable. This week it is important to focus on the complex and advanced leadership role that is needed to make effective change in a dynamic and demanding health care system.
This week you will focus on the importance of leadership in advanced practice nursing. You will have an opportunity to examine how you can execute positive social change in your state for salient advanced practice nursing issues.

State Practice Agreements

Social Change Agents

Assignment #2
W 11 Discussion
STATE PRACTICE AGREEMENT
Social change Agents
“We’ve been called disruptive innovators,” Ford said. “And I think ‘disruptive innovators’ is great – we just need more of them.”
— Heidesch, T. (2008)
As NPs, we are obligated to promote our profession. A component of promoting the profession is proactively being engaged with our communities and identifying areas where change is needed. An example of this would be identifying a community issue, such as an increase in the rate of obesity in a middle-school population and discovering that soda machines are present in the schools. Identifying a problem and being a positive change agent is an essential component of the NP role. Understanding the lawmaking process and how to initiate a local or state change empowers the NP to impart Social Change.
This week you will focus on the importance of leadership in advanced practice nursing. You will have an opportunity to examine how you can execute positive social change in your state for salient advanced practice nursing issues.
Consider the following:
During NP clinical practicum experiences, we identify, as nurses, many health care issues that need to be addressed at the local, state, or national level. Addressing the need for change in health care policy is now an intricate part of your role as a social change agent.
For this Discussion, you will identify a change needed in your community and what your nursing legacy for positive social change will be.
To prepare:
· 1. Consider the health care issues and deficits you have recognized in your professional practice.
· 2. Identify a change needed in your community in health care policy and discuss how you could impart change during your career as an NP.) (A change needed in my community is Obesity ).
· 3. Consider your future as a NP and what your nursing legacy will be. How will you impart Social Change?
1. Post a change needed in your community and an explanation for how you will begin to implement that change.
2. Then, share with your colleagues a brief explanation of what your nursing legacy will be:(My nursing legacy  will be (Being an advocate for health promotion through disease screenings and illness prevention)
3.  How will you impart Social Change. 
4.  Provide  at least one suggestion for a colleague in your class on how they could implement this change and for their nursing legacy.

  • Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, including a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words. Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source. One or two-sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words. I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

  • Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately. In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies. Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work). Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

  • APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with the APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required). Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation. I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

  • Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage over-utilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Master’s level and deduct points accordingly. As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content. It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

  • LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me. Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes. Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own? Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

  • Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is a 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies. Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances. If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect. I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension. As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

  • Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class. Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
