Assignment: Another APA paper of at least 1500 words and 2 sources and the text = 3 total sources. Please review the Essay Rubric found in the Assignment upload link in the lower right corner. This week is about the Qualities of a Nurse Leader. It is important for nurse leaders to engage with other nurse leaders to understand professional roles; a practice experience is assigned to achieve this end. It is expected that you will spend 8-10 hours with the nurse leader, shadowing them in their position, observing them go about their day, and interviewing them. The interview can take place before, during, or after the shadow period or can be on a different day. (**Students who hold an RN license in the state of Washington must complete 10 hours of practice experience and submit their practice experience hours log. Please upload your log as a separate document in the Module 6 dropbox.**) You will engage with and interview a nurse leader in person. This activity was mentioned in the News starting in Module 1 so you have had ample time to solidify this experience and plan for this week. Choose a nurse leader who holds a leadership nursing position in their organization who have direct reports (they supervise other employees). Examples of this include the Director of Nursing, Director, Unit Manager. *You may not be employed in the same facility as your interviewee or shadow during personal work hours* (If special accommodations need to be made, approval by your instructor is required first). Develop an interview guide before conducting the interview. Identify the information that you want to know before the interview and plan clarifying questions. You must include at least one question about technology/informatics in the interview. Conduct an interview regarding their professional role in the organization, and a current health care issue that is of interest to you (ethics, conflict management, budget, staffing, the culture of safety, “just culture”, career advancement, quality improvement, etc.). Identify the name of the organization and use names of all involved (no anonymity is required for this assignment). Prepare a written report of the interview. You may include photos, graphs, or charts.
