Leadership In Nursing Discussion Question
You have just completed your 6-month probation as a new nurse, and while you are beginning to feel comfortable in this new role, you feel there is still much you need to learn. You also know that your self-confidence is not yet what you want it to be.
A new nursing assistive personnel began working on your unit about 3 weeks ago. She has asked the charge nurse to be assigned to your team whenever possible. She is a hard worker and a quick learner, and you enjoy having her on your team.
Today, she comes to you and shares that her goal is to be a registered nurse (RN) and that she is currently taking her prenursing courses at the local university and hopes to apply to the nursing program next year. She asks if you would be willing to “take her under your wing” and teach her more about what being a professional RN is all about. You are flattered that she thinks of you as a role model but are not sure that you have either the time or the skill level yet to be an effective coach for her.
DQ: How will you respond to her request? What factors will you consider in making your decision? What are the potential driving and restraining forces for both accepting and denying her request? How much knowledge and experience are needed to be an effective coach?
