The discussion this week explores how organizational structure impacts the clinical microsystem.

In your initial post (Min 350 words) identify and explain the organizational structure of your current (or former) employer using the structures identified in Yoder-Wise CH 11 (Functional, Service-Line, Matrix, Flat, or Shared Governance). Next, identify and describe the clinical microsystem (unit) in which you work (e.g. pediatrics, ER, home care, hospice, etc.). Finally, review the Clinical Microsystem Assessment form, which describes five areas of excellence in clinical microsystems: download

Which area of the assessment is the strongest and which area is the weakest in your unit/microsystem (Leadership, Staff, Patients, Performance, or Information & Information Technology)? Please explain your answers using specific examples. Discuss three ways the organizational structure you identified influences the strengths and weaknesses of your microsystem assessment. Based on the readings in this module, is there an organizational structure that could improve the performance of your clinical microsystem? If so, identify the structure and how it might improve the clinical microsystem’s performance. In addition to incorporating the readings assigned for this module, provide one peer-reviewed, current (within the last five years) article on microsystems to support your initial post.

In two response posts to classmates (min 250 words) provide additional feedback by identifying another (new) way that the organizational structure may be influenced by outside forces (economic, social, demographic or -perhaps the Coronavirus pandemic). How might these factors not only impact the structure of the organization, but also impact the clinical microsystem? In addition to the readings assigned for this module, provide one peer-reviewed, current (within the last five years) article on microsystems to support each response post. (A different article for each response.)

This assignment reinforces the following End-of-Program Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. Synthesize knowledge from nursing science and liberal studies to apply critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and decision-making skills that improve nursing care of individuals, families, and communities throughout the life span.
  2. Analyze the principles of nursing leadership and management in the practice of professional nursing to promote safe and quality outcomes of care in various healthcare environments.
  3. Incorporate effective communication and collaboration skills in providing safe nursing care that promotes patient preference, mutual respect, and improved health care outcomes.
  4. Analyze the impact of trends and issues influencing nursing practice, healthcare, and access to healthcare in diverse populations.

Initial Post (Min. 350 words): As Yoder-Wise (2019, p. 87) stated, “Leadership is not something that exists outside of you, but…comes from the core of who you are. Developing as a leader (means) connecting with your authentic self and (then) integrating your full self into the role of …leader.” Using the leadership insights provided in Yoder-Wise CH 5, describe your ‘authentic self’ and how these attributes influence who you are as a leader. Describe a situation in which you functioned as a leader (formal or informal) in a clinical microsystem. Did your approach reflect transactional leadership or transformational leadership (or a combination)? How did your leadership contribute to the performance of the clinical microsystem? Offer a specific example to illustrate the impact of your leadership in this situation. At a minimum, use readings from Yoder-Wise CHs 5 & 28 to support your experiences.

Note: You may post the initial and 1 response post on the same day; but, the two response posts need to occur on separate days.

Two Response Posts (Min. 250 words,): Conduct a literature search on clinical/nursing leadership competencies. Find at least two current (within the past five years), peer-reviewed NURSING journal articles that articulate competencies for clinical or nurse leaders. Relate three competencies that you found in the literature to the leadership theory identified in classmates’ initial posts. Discuss how the competencies ‘fit’ or complement the leadership theory identified. Cite the articles in-text and as a reference at the end of the posts using APA format.

This assignment reinforces the following End-of-Program Student Learning Outcomes:

1. Synthesize knowledge from nursing science and liberal studies to apply critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and decision-making skills that improve nursing care of individuals, families, and communities throughout the life span.

2. Incorporate effective inter-professional communication and collaboration skills in providing safe nursing care that promotes patient preference, mutual respect, and improved health care outcomes.

3. Analyze the principles of nursing leadership and management in the practice of professional nursing to promote safe and quality outcomes of care in various healthcare environments.
