Week5 leader Examplar Audio Transcript

After working a number of years in home health, I made the decision to return to the acute care setting and accepted a full time night position on a very busy and high acuity step down unit. Upon learning of the unit that I would be working on, many of my nurse friends and former colleagues began warning me about the current supervisor on that unit and filling me with self-doubt regarding my ability to perform up to this person’s expectations.

On my first day, I was introduced to my supervisor and preceptor who was none other than Sue, the very person that I had been warned about. Hoping for the best but fearing the worst, I decided to put all of the bad things that I had heard out of my mind and see what happened.

In doing so, I quickly discovered that Sue would become the best supervisor and preceptor that I had ever had. She immediately took a vested interest in my success by sitting down with me each week for coffee and discussing what was going well and not going so well. Together, we worked to establish both short-term and long-term goals for not only my time with her in orientation but my future ones as a member of the staff on the unit. Sue helped me to identify weaknesses within myself by allowing me to reflect on situations rather than immediately pointing them out to me. Likewise, she made it a point to highlight my strengths and provided me with opportunities to put them into use in the practice setting. She provided support and encouragement when needed while at the same time allowing me to grow in my independence and autonomy.
