NAIJA NURSES FORUM.COM wants to acknowledge; encouraged and motivate to render more services to humanity. Nominate yourself or nursing colleague whom you think deserves our QUARTERLY NURSING EXCELLENCE AWARD AND RECOGNITION and let’s celebrate with this fellow.
1. What is the individual’s legacy?
How significant is their achievement? How will we remember their contribution? Will they leave the profession in a better place than when they joined it? Did they engineer substantial change that had an impact on patient care? Were they the first to perform their role? Or, perhaps their achievements took place in a challenging environment, facing additional barriers? Have they achieved results by working collaboratively and recognising individual contributions?
2. Are they a good role model?
We want nominees who demonstrate that they care for their teams, provide a safe, educational environment in which they encourage their teams to grow and do their jobs effectively. They must ensure team members are valued and show respect and compassion to each other. They must set performance goals and support their teams in delivering them, and champion learning and personal development.
How do they use their influence? How do they improve practice and care?
4. Extent of the nurse leader’s impact
Does the person have influence over your hospital or institution? How do they affect nursing policy, practice and patient care? Are they a good role model? Have they a vision that improves services and care, and do they communicate this in a way that is compelling and exciting, yet feels achievable?
5. Influence across different areas of healthcare
Do they hold a number of positions across nursing or exert influence in a number of ways? Do they understand how health and social care services fit together, interconnect and interact? Are they flexible in using different organisations to create a better service and outcomes for patients?
