Quality and Cost Measurements
As nurse practitioners continue to expand their role in delivering health care, it is imperative for NPs to provide the data and evidence to demonstrate the impact of NP care on patient outcomes. There are several challenges that advanced practice nurses face to provide quality care and meet productivity goals of an organization. This week it is important to explore the connection of quality care and performance measures. Some questions to consider as we discuss this topic are:

Assignment 2: Practicum Journal and Time Log (Due Week 4)
A vital part of the reflective process is to plan for changes in your behavior.

Somerville & Keeling, 2004.

Assignment 2: Practicum Journal and Time Log (Due Week 4)
A vital part of the reflective process is to plan for changes in your behavior.

Somerville & Keeling, 2004.

Being a reflective practitioner enables NPs to identify weaknesses and target professional development in order to address these weaknesses. In turn, this increases the NPs ability to provide the best care to patients and their families. Reflection also affords the NP time to consider communication and their efforts toward creating a culture of mutual support with colleagues, a characteristic that is essential to successful NP practice (Somerville & Keeling, 2004).

Each week you will complete a Journal Entry and Time Log that prompts you to reflect on your Practicum Experiences and how they relate to your Professional Goals and Self-Assessment of Clinical Skills. This week you will begin documenting your Practicum Experiences in your Practicum Journal.

Think of your organization through the lens of Complexity. Describe two issues that are constrained by the complexity within your organization.

For example: You are a part of a family owned business where an inexperienced family member has been given a position of authority.
