leader is engaged in leadership tasks. First, schedule an interview with the nurse leader ( at least two levels above your current position) and record that date and time. Include descriptions of activities, your expected roles or behaviors as an observer or participant, and schedules of the activities. Explain the types of things you will be looking for and how you will record your observations. (Space will expand as you type.) Please remember to send a thank-you note to the nurse leader you interview. I will be shadowing, Adrianne King, a lead nurse at my unit. She is in charge of assigning patients to nurses, of accepting patients to our unit or moving patients off our unit depending on the patient’s acuity, she is also in charge of making the nurses’ schedule and helps around during the day in the unit. I will be meeting with Adrianne on Thursday March 8, 2018 at 0700. I would like to be present when she gets report from the night shift lead RN and then we will head out to morning huddle with all the nurses where she gives a snapshot of the patients and what we can expect as far as discharges. We have a unit meeting from 1000 to 1200 and I plan to be with her for the rest of the day. She is always at the lead’s office in the center of the unit. I will be in the office and in the unit with her for the rest of the day interacting with nursing supervisors, and management staff.
