      ================== ARTICLE START ==================

      Would it be best for nurses to work in a team? Many
      professionals debate on this topic and the technique is used or
      dismissed depending on the hospital director's present view.

      On the positive side, nurses working as a team can divide
      duties and patients will have the opportunity to see more health
      care workers. On the contrary, some people believe that primary
      care is the best scenario; one nurse knows the patient's
      condition and personality well and can adapt their techniques to
      suit their individual patient.

      The following article explores the concept of team nursing, and
      will give a young nurse in school or one continuing their
      nursing education a sense of how their services will be applied.

      The benefits of more nurses

      The success of a team is contingent on its makeup. A team with
      members that are accountable and efficient will have no problems
      working together. Some health care environments are based on a
      hierarchy system, which can stymie the effectiveness of a team
      network. Some settings more than others, are conducive to team

      A nursing student had responded, "An environment that values
      all of the players on the team and provides them with a voice
      and opportunities to grow and expand in their position will get

      It seems that the success of a team has a lot to do with its
      immediate environment. The nursing student added, "I hope that
      the teams with low morale would look for ways to restructure
      their environment instead of giving up on the method."

      A negative view of team nursing

      Some people think "team nursing" destroys any sense of
      accountability for nurses. Most will think that there will be
      somebody to address tasks, but in the end, no one will complete
      what is needed to be done. One health care support worker
      offered their comment on the situation. "Team nursing justifies
      ignoring the patients' needs. Each job patient needs one nurse
      who is responsible for them, and not four who might be."

      A rift usually interrupts the dynamic of team nursing. The more
      experienced nurses seem to take on a superior position and
      allocate the menial tasks to those with less experience. "Some
      are permanently confined to basic tasks," described the health
      worker. "Regardless of your level of knowledge, you will be
      stuck doing the less desirable tasks, which ensures that good
      workers will quit."
