Before we begin, I would like to encourage you to locate your week five assignment guidelines and rubric. It will be helpful to have that document available as we continue with the assignment overview. [BLANK_AUDIO] The capacity of the nurse to influence others and shape working relationships has been a clear idea of emphasis throughout our class readings.

From influencing one’s self, to facilitating collaborative practice with others, the MSN prepared nurse leader is equipped to cultivate a culture of excellence within the healthcare environment by fostering quality, safety, cultural humility, meaningful engagement, and a healthful work atmosphere. The purpose of this assignment is to consider the value of a culture of excellence, as well as the leadership strategies necessary to facilitate a culture of excellence within the work setting specific to the selected MSN track.

Through this assignment, you will identify characteristics and practices which support a culture of excellence within an organization. In addition, you will identify organizational mission, vision and values, and create an original concept map which portrays the interrelationships between each element. Also portrayed within the concept map will be the extent to which the mission, vision and values reflect a culture of excellence. NR504: Week 5 Leading a Culture of Excellence

Finally, through this assignment, you will explore leadership strategies which promote a culture of excellence and support the Chamberlain Care model in the selected MSN role. [BLANK_AUDIO] As we begin our assignment overview, let’s look at a couple of fast facts regarding the Week Five assignments. The Leading a Culture of Excellence assignment includes two parts.

Part I will include a concept map which is the student’s own original work. And Part II will include a scholarly written paper. The concept map may be hand drawn and scanned as a PDF document. Or you may create a concept map using tools in the Word format. The concept map must illustrate the interrelationships between mission, vision, and values of an existing organization or your choosing.

You will want the concept map to portray how the organization’s mission, vision, and values do or do not reflect a culture of excellence. We will discuss the concept MAC requirement in further detail, just a little bit later in our overview. In addition to the concept map, Part II of this assignment is a three to four page scholarly written paper.

To support your writing, four current peer reviewed scholarly sources are required.The assignment in total is worth 175 points, which is 17.5% of the course grade.The assignment is due at 11:59 PM Mountain Time at the end of week five. The week five assignment addresses three of our course outcomes for Nursing 504, course learning outcome one, two, and three.

Course learning outcome number 1, discern leadership approaches that facilitate achievement of health outcomes through interprofessional collaborative practice within micro, meso, and macro-level systems. Course outcome 2, appraise the role of the MSN-prepared nurse to lead safe, efficient, ethical, high-quality, person-centered health care across complex systems. And course outcome number 3, integrate communication modalities which convey cultural humility, value the diverse nature of individuals, and cultivate healthful work environments.

Investigate the concept of a culture of excellence along with the organizational characteristics and practices, and leadership strategies, which help to facilitate and reflect a culture of excellence. You will need a minimum of four peer-reviewed scholarly sources current within five years to support your writing. Select an existing organizational mission, vision, and values to portray within your concept map.

You’ll create an original concept map to demonstrate and portray how these elements do or do not support a culture of excellence. And finally, you will develop a three to four page paper to address the content requirements noted in the rubric.You will submit two documents. Both Part I, the concept map, and Part II, the written paper, for final evaluation.

Let’s begin with Part I of the assignment, the concept map. For full credit, you will create a concept map, which is your own original work.

The concept map will express organizational mission, vision and values. To do this, you want to first identify an existing organization that is of interest to you. Perhaps it is the current organization where you are employed Or perhaps it’s another healthcare organization, where you may choose to seek employment after graduation as an MSN-prepared nurse.

Once you identify the organization, locate the mission, vision and values of that organization. Create a unique original concept map which portrays the organization’s mission, vision, and values, along with the interrelationships between those three elements. You will also want the concept map to portray how the organizational mission, vision, and values do or do not reflect a culture of excellence.

Now, in order to reflect this element in your concept map, you will want to integrate characteristics or practices which are reflective of a culture of excellence. And portray the degree to which they are reflected in the chosen organizational mission, vision, and values. It will be helpful for you to read about a culture of excellence and identify organizational characteristics and practices which support a culture of excellence.

This content is addressed in the week five lesson and readings. Once you are familiar with those characteristics and practices, you will be better able to create that element within your concept map, demonstrating how the organizational mission, vision, and values do or do not reflect the elements of a culture of excellence.

How might you create an original concept map for this assignment? Well, there are a couple of ways that you can do this. First, you can hand draw a concept map, scan that drawing to create a PDF file, and then submit the concept map as a PDF file. If you prefer and if you are familiar with software tools available, you can use software to create a concept map, such as tools that are available within Microsoft Word.

Once your concept map is created, you would submit that electronic file. Please note, artistic talent is not being graded in this assignment. Instead, fulfillment of the required assignment criteria will be evaluated. The concept map must be your own original work. It must be created by you and no one else.
Now that we’ve discussed the concept map, let’s shift gears and begin to review the content and format requirements for the written paper portion of the assignment. This is Part II of the assignment. And again, remember to refer to the guideline and rubric for full details. Let’s begin with the introduction section to your paper. NR504: Week 5 Leading a Culture of Excellence

Within this section, be sure to include the importance of pursuing a culture of excellence within the healthcare industry, and the role of mission, vision, and value statements to guide organizational culture. You’ll be sure to identify the sections of the paper, and remember to include support from current, peer reviewed scholarly sources.
