NURS6201 Leadership in Nursing and Healthcare Week 8 Discussion Coaching, Mentoring, and Effective Feedback According to the ANA Peer Review Guidelines position statement, “As the professional association for nursing, ANA has a responsibility to the public and its members to facilitate the development of a quality assurance system including peer review.” Each nurse has a responsibility to engage in collaborative decision-making processes, self-evaluation of individual performance, and evaluation of others’ performance. In this Discussion, you will compare aspects of peer feedback vs. peer review and how these practices apply to effective nursing practice.
