Your discussion about the urgent healthcare needs in our society and the importance of nursing research scholars is one I fully agree with. As the population grows, so does the life expectancy. It is important to be able to apply evidence in practice when improving care for patients and outcomes. Your emphasis on nursing inquiry and the need for quality improvement methods to change the way healthcare is delivered was also appreciated. Trautman and al. Combining quality improvement with nursing inquiry can be effective for changing health care processes and outcomes.
Your insights into leadership, the ability to communicate and collaborate in groups and bring about change are invaluable. Nurse practice scholars and nursing research scholars can use their experience to lead in the healthcare setting and bring about positive change. Fuller & Hansen (2019), noted that leadership in nursing is crucial to the advancement of evidence-based medicine and promotion of quality and safety. It is therefore important that nursing professionals acquire the leadership skills they need to lead change effectively and improve patient-care.
