Despite a big amount of literature on the subject organizational influences such as the management and organizational culture, structure and style on the outcomes related directly to the professional development, have received very little attention. Therefore this paper would make a fair effort to identify those elements and apply the principles thereof to delineate the related learning outcomes.
The episodic experiences of the professional have a very far reaching impact on these outcomes. For instance this writer’s learning experience as a trainee/student nurse has been influenced by a number of episodic experiences related to the administration of Cardiac pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in the learning environment. The question of delegation of power, authority and responsibility played a very significant role in this context. As this writer experienced it the willingness to delegate power, authority and responsibility has a very far reaching impact on the related outcomes. In other words the level of motivation of a team of professionals or students is directly correlated to the level delegation. This is none so well articulated and presented than in the professional setting where the relative significance of each variable such as success rate of CPR and other activities is determined by the individual student’s attitudes and capabilities. As the currently available literature on the subject suggests there is a positive correlation between motivation and delegation of responsibility. This is much more important when it comes to CPR in critical situations.
There is also the undeniable involvement of the professional or the student in the decision making process thus influencing the learning outcomes. The extent to which the professional is able to carry through this process in advancing career development is not so easily obvious though. In fact the student might as well make difficult decisions in respect of quality and
