Nowadays plenty of nurse graduates has encountered a lack of knowledge and skills. This is the result of insufficient education and attitude for the delegation that assumes safe and effective health care delivery. Therefore, the art of professional nursing refers to adequate delegation. Applying knowledge and experience, the nurse is to identify the most suitable nursing strategy and the legal authority performing that practice. To apply delegation, the nurse should know a set of policies, specific requirements, and practice settings as well as principles associated with the delegation process. In case there is a shortage of resources, the nurse is to plan how the team can ensure access to competent and timely health care. At that, it is essential to follow instructions received from mentors or supervisors in decision-making.
I believe that delegation is an integral part of nursing excellence as it affects my interaction with others as a team. In particular, delegation procedures help me to develop the nursing skills of staff and contribute to cost containment. Moreover, critical thinking and professional judgment used in delegation lead to appropriate decisions that take into account the background, circumstances, and person. All in all, delegation leads to enhanced health care provision based on professional nursing practice.
