  • A patient advocate is an advocate of client’s rights. According to Disparti (1988), advocacy involves promoting what is best for the client, ensuring that the client’s needs are met, and protecting the client’s rights. Social advocacy entails advocating on behalf of a population or a community to effect positive change. Nurses engaged in this form of advocacy can create healthy environments through political action, community education, and involvement in professional organizations.
  • Nurse as a councilor focuses on helping the person develop new attitudes, feelings, and behaviors rather than on promoting intellectual growth. The nurse encourages the client to look at alternative behaviors, recognizes the choices, and develop a sense of control. Counseling can be provided on a one-to-one basis or in groups. Often nurses lead group counseling sessions. The nurse may be a leader, member, or resource person in any self-help group in which the nurse may assume the role of structuring activities and fostering a climate conductive to group interaction and productive work. Obviously, counseling requires therapeutic communication skills. In addition, the nurse must be a skilled leader able to analyze a situation, synthesize information and experiences, and evaluate the progress and productivity of the individual or group. The nurse must also be willing to model and teach desired behaviors, to be sincere when caring in the welfare of the others.
  • At a client level, nursing leadership is defined as a mutual process of interpersonal influence through which the nurse helps a client make decisions in establishing and achieving goals to improve the client’s well-being. The purposes of leadership vary according to the level of application and include (a) improving the health status and potential of individuals or families, (b) increasing the effectiveness and level of satisfaction among professional colleagues providing care, and (c) raising citizens’ and legislators’ attitudes toward and expectations of the nursing profession.
  • As a manager , nurse manages the nursing care of individuals, groups, families, and communities. The nurse-manager also delegates nursing activities to ancillary workers and other nurses and supervises and evaluates their performance. In addition, the nurse uses principles of management and leadership was functioning as a case manager. Case management involves coordination among disciplines and with ancillary personnel to deliver care to the client in the most appropriate setting and in a cost-efficient matter.
