6053 NURSES Consider a nationwide health-care dilemma.
Nurse leaders are frequently confronted with ethical challenges, such as deciding between competing needs and limited resources. Resources are limited, and all organizations compete for them on a daily basis.
Nurse retention has been aided by the usage of 12-hour shifts, for example. Evidence suggests, however, that as nurses work longer shifts, they make more mistakes. How can great leaders strike a balance between the organization’s needs and the demands of providing high-quality, effective, and safe patient care?
In this Discussion, you’ll consider a national healthcare issue and consider how competing needs might influence the creation of policies to address it.
How to Get Ready:
Review the Resources and consider the national healthcare issue or stressor you choose to research in Module 1.
Consider the competing needs in healthcare delivery in relation to the national healthcare issue or stressor you studied previously.
Explain how competing requirements, such as those of the workforce, resources, and patients, could influence policy creation. Then, outline any competing needs that may have an impact on the national healthcare issue or stressor you chose. What are the consequences, and how may policy respond to these opposing demands? Give instances and be specific.
