NURS 6050 Walden University Nursing Role in Program Design and Implementation

The honeyguide bird and the honey badger, as their names suggest, both enjoy honey. Honeyguide birds are experts at identifying beehives but struggle to get to the honey within. Honey badgers are well-equipped to raid beehives, but they are not always successful. However, these two honey-loving animals have learnt to work together to achieve their goals. Honey badgers are guided to freshly discovered hives by the honeyguide bird. After the honey badger has looted the hive, the honey guide bird enters securely to consume the remaining honey.

Much like honeyguide birds and honey badgers, nurses and health professionals from other specialty areas can—and should—collaborate to design effective programs. Nurses bring specialties to the table that make them natural partners to professionals with different specialties. When nurses take the requisite leadership in becoming involved throughout the healthcare system, these partnerships can better design and deliver highly effective programs that meet objectives.

In this Assignment, you will practice this type of leadership by advocating for a healthcare program. Equally as important, you will advocate for a collaborative role of the nurse in the design and implementation of this program. To do this, assume you are preparing to be interviewed by a professional organization/publication regarding your thoughts on the role of the nurse in the design and implementation of new healthcare programs.
