Give three specific examples of how you will become a more effective team member in your nursing practice. There’s times that I sit back and won’t speak up. I know I am a follower, but to be an effective follower I need to be able to support the leader when I know that their doing the right thing and heading in the right direction. However, I do need to have more confidence and courage to let the leader know when something is headed in the wrong direction. With the improvements, I’d then be able to be a solid leader and accept my vulnerabilities but continue to grow and learn by my mistakes.
