Build their confidence
â—Â Â Â Â Ask the charge nurse from the previous shift to assign patients who may be on the easier side, even if just for a day. If that new nurse can manage easier patients and keep up for one day, it may do remarkable things for his confidence. As you may remember from the beginning of your own career, less confidence meant doubting your every move, which equated to less efficient nursing. Boosting your preceptee’s confidence may make a world of difference.
