Nurses are Nation Builders
The foundation of any healthcare system is the nursing profession. The nursing profession is essential to all facets of healthcare. Beyond their normal duties, nurses perform many other tasks.

An example of a nation builder might be a nurse who aids a patient in fighting a dangerous sickness. Above all, they are essential to achieving healthcare objectives. Nurses are needed in every sector of the healthcare system especially in recent times considering the pandemic looming large on the world.

Hard and soft skills are combined by nurses to succeed in their employment. Some of the abilities used by nurses:
1. Communication: One of the most crucial skills for nurses is communication. Nurses communicate with a variety of groups of individuals on a regular basis, including patients, family members, and medical professionals. In order to effectively communicate with these various stakeholders, nurses need flexible communication skills.
2. Critical Analysis:To solve problems, one needs to be able to gather information, evaluate data, and make decisions. Nurses apply their critical thinking abilities to assess complex circumstances, respond to medical emergencies, and choose the best way to care for their patients. In emergency situations, they might act quickly or alert the proper medical personnel about issues.
3. Empathy: Empathy is a skill that nurses utilise to develop deep connections with their patients. Understanding other people’s feelings or viewpoints is known as empathy. By using active listening techniques, displaying concern and interest for their patients, and paying close attention to their needs, nurses can demonstrate empathy..
4. Teamwork: A lot of nurses are employed by healthcare organisations. By effectively communicating with others, providing assistance when their coworkers ask for it, and accepting accountability for their actions, they can demonstrate collaboration skills. Teams in the healthcare industry may provide thorough, efficient medical care when they work well together.
5. Organisational abilities: To manage their daily tasks, nurses employ organisational abilities. They might use their organisational competence to stay on top of paperwork and make sure it is filed properly.
6. Time Management: Apart from the above qualities, nurses use their time management abilities to complete jobs quickly. Proper time management practices can help nurses feel less stressed, work proactively, and produce more at work.

Effective Leadership Management in the Health Sector
How to attract, recruit and maintain a dedicated skilled and loyal workforce in the health sector (Aged Care)
This seminar is based on research from a recent royal commission report into the aged care sector and a workforce strategy that followed. The strategy outlined a number of skill gaps across the aged care sector, including a significant lack of management & leadership knowledge and skills. This was identified across all levels of staff, including management and supervisors. Based on the workforce strategy, I have put together an educational seminar. The seminar includes a lot of practical ideas and ‘How To’ methods. The purpose of the seminar is to develop and build knowledge and skills of people working across the aged care sector.
