NSG 5000 Week 2 Project – Group Project

This week you will be assigned to a group and be given a domain to develop/discuss applying all or some of the 7 core competencies. Group members need to assume AP roles (clinical and non-clinical) either by volunteering or being assigned by the group leader. A group leader must be decided and may be a nurse manager/nurse administrator, CNS, NP (maybe more than one and from different specialties), NI, and NE.CNLs and RNs may be also be part of the group scenario. All members are expected to demonstrate leadership knowledge and skills, but also must be willing to follow.

Each group will demonstrate the core competencies and principals of transformational leadership in the group work. (See rubric).To ensure understanding of leadership styles, each group member will discover their own professional leadership style by an individual self-assessment online. Assignments and responsibilities should be equally assumed by group members. The final evidence of the group work will be power point presentation that discusses the scenario addressing the assigned domain, the roles and the outcomes. Please note that although a group project, individual grading rubric will be used to determine individual grades.(See below).

The master’s prepared nurse demonstrates leadership in the four domains: the profession of nursing, clinical practice arena, health policy arena, and systems level. The impact could be found in health promotion, disease prevention/management, quality improvement and/or within management of a health system. In order to complete this assignment, each group member will complete an assessment about your leadership style and post to the group area their leadership style.
