The expected portfolio of clinical areas involved in this position is extensive. How would you as a Nurse Educator ensure that you were able to meet the needs of those areas and manage your time effectively.
As I have twelve years experience as a Practice Development Nurse/Nurse Educator in the NHS, I have developed key skills and experience in juggling several balls in the air at any one time and ensuring that at all times I appeared calm and ready to help any areas/nurses that needed it. I enjoy being busy and my passion for the role is often fed by the realisation that no two days or even hours are the same. I am also very organised and would ensure weekly one to one meetings with the NUM of the wards/teams I support to ensure that I am meeting their needs and to keep them informed in a more formal manner of how aspects of my role in their areas is progressing. On the spot courses and ad hoc training would always be available as would clinical supervision and action learning set development as needed. Finally I would visit each area daily to pop in if not working on that area that day, and also ensure that I was visibly role modelling and working beside and within these teams on a daily basis.
