Some tip how to do it!
Critically discussing write leadership roles of RN and may also need to write some arugement around these roles by compare between your view and the arguement and evaluating.Make sure you tie the leadership role of the RN to ensuring quality and safe care delivery.
You may choose to very briefly explain a certain leadership style to give context to how it promotes quality and safe care but the assessment is not about what is leadership.
You may or may not refer to Lucys voice-recording interview but the assessment is not about structuring your assessment around what Lucy thinks it is about you critically discussing what you believe the leadership role of the RN is in ensuring quality and safe care.
Any information that you draw upon from the voice recording must be referenced accordingly. To clarify the essence of the essay however the recording is to provide a stimulus only- the essay is not to all being about what Lucy has said. Rather it is hoped that Lucys interview will provoke thought.
You will need to attach the appendix whether you draw on it in the essay or not as digital literacy is one of the GLOs for the unit and the assessment (as per unit guide).
