Social media plays a significant role in the lives of nurses in both their professional and personal lives.

Nursing Leadership and Management

Compare two leadership theories. Provide an overview of each and discuss the strengths and weakness in relation to nursing practice.

Nursing Leadership and Management

I like the approach you took in highlighting your strengths and weaknesses in dealing with patients who have different worldviews on spiritual care. I specifically like that you are a strong believer in Christian faith which I find it valuable since most patients in the US practice Christianity. Therefore, having a strong Christian background ensures a robust relationship between the nurse and the patient. This means that you understand the importance of prayers, Bible reading and meditation in the process of disease and healing. This reminds me when I used to work in Jamaica and during the Covid-19 pandemic, I would encourage patients not to give up breathing and instead, seek God’s will through prayers. I am glad that some of the patients recovered from Covid-19 and were discharged. A recent study revealed that a majority of nurses experience burn out due to improper time management (Gijsberts et al., 2019). Therefore, I agree that you need to plan your time to attend to patients’ health and spiritual care.
