8557. Discussion Question: It is critical to synthesize all of the knowledge, skills, and abilities of nursing into an integrated whole that moves nurses from task completers to an overall demonstration of compassion and caring. Thinking of nursing first as a job of caring and making a difference, as well as the work of giving medications on time, checking an X-ray to see if the doctor needs to be called, or taking an admission at 2:00 a.m. with a smile on our faces, reminds us of the synthesized whole of nursing work. Write a reflection about this thought. Incorporate elements from this modules objectives, as well as what you have learned in this course about leadership. You may include personal experiences and professional opinions if you wish. Your initial posting should be at least 400 words in length and utilize at least one scholarly source other than the textbook.
