Today, Chief Nursing Officers are responsible for a wide range of tasks, including administrative and leadership duties. Being a CNO is a significant choice that necessitates a thorough grasp of current patient care rules and practices. To thrive as a Chief Nursing Officer, you must also be able to demonstrate excellent leadership and organizational abilities (Van Aken, 2018). This job entails a wide range of tasks, including leadership, advising, and administrative duties.
The most crucial thing is to be able to recognize the importance of the patient-nurse connection. Healthcare facilities are having it increasingly difficult to assess activities and treatments that do not provide quantifiable results. In institutions dedicated to good care, restoring dignity and individuality in the face of severe sickness by basic human action may go a long way. Reading books and chatting to the patient about raising children are examples of simple strategies that may be used to communicate with the sick (Prestia et al., 2017). A nurse can keep the patients’ world from collapsing under the weight of sickness, vulnerability, and loss.
When a tough stance is required, understanding what is at stake when giving up caring behaviors can help to clarify the issue. The ethical responsibility of this practice is to assure healing, restore dignity, and make comprehensive treatment safe and effective for vulnerable individuals who have entrusted their lives to a nurse (Jones et al., 2017). The chief officer’s role is essential in terms of conducting moral ethics, essential to nursing in general, and good care strategies in particular. Aside from the patients, chief officers serve as role models for young nurses who may be well acquainted with the theory but lack specific experience when dealing with the patient’s moral struggles.
