Submission Length: 2- to 3-page paper in response to 2 scenarios
Tower 6 East is a 45-bed medical unit. The nurse leader, Ciera, is a new leader, and one of the measures of her performance is based on the number of medication errors reported on her unit. As a result, she has told everyone very clearly that she will not tolerate errors and that she wants the unit to have zero medication errors each month. When an error does occur, she meets individually with the nurse, writes up the nurse’s error, and puts a report in the nurse’s performance review files. She has put two nurses on performance probation thus far. As a result, the nurses on the unit are afraid to report when an error occurs, and they have begun to cover for each other and not report errors. You are a staff nurse on the unit and you want to serve as a leader and create a blame-free environment.
In your response, address the following:
Identify and explain whether Ciera’s leadership style toward medication errors on the nursing unit is appropriate and explain why. Then, provide at least one outcome result from Ciera’s leadership approach on the nursing unit. (Yoder-Wise, P. (2019, p.498) Leading and managing in nursing (7th ed.). Mosby Elsevier.
Explain what leadership style you would use to effect change in this scenario.
Using the Paradiso
The strategic planning process provides the leader with an opportunity to resolve an issue. As you consider the strategic planning process, identify current challenges in nursing practice. Discuss the challenge identified using the format of a SWOT analysis. Who would you involve in the SWOT analysis and what is your recommendation for change?
For assistance completing a SWOT analysis, refer to this FAQ.

Discussion: The Inclusion of Nurses in the Systems Development Life Cycle
The Inclusion of Nurses in the Systems Development Life Cycle
I- 2pages Discussion post
In the media introduction to this module, it was suggested that you as a nurse have an important role in the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). With a focus on patient care and outcomes, nurses may not always see themselves as contributors to the development of new systems. However, as you may have observed in your own experience, exclusion of nurse contributions when implementing systems can have dire consequences.
In this Discussion, you will consider the role you might play in systems development and the ramifications of not being an active participant in systems development.
Review the steps of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) as presented in the Resources.
Reflect on your own healthcare organization and consider any steps your healthcare organization goes through when purchasing and implementing a new health information technology system.
Consider what a nurse might contribute to decisions made at each stage of the SDLC when planning for new health information technology.
Post a description of what you believe to be the consequences of a healthcare organization not involving nurses in each stage of the SDLC when purchasing and implementing a new health information technology system. Provide specific examples of potential issues at each stage of the SDLC and explain how the inclusion of nurses may help address these issues. Then, explain whether you had any input in the selection and planning of new health information technology systems in your nursing practice or healthcare organization and explain potential impacts of being included or not in the decision-making process. Be specific and provide examples.
