Task detail

Consider the next stage of your transition from student to a graduate registered nurse. During this transition, the stages of reality shock can become real. How you, as a graduate registered nurse responds to each situation will prepare you for further challenges. However, this requires resilience, strength, and the capacity to grow as a leader and to self-reflect. Please read the case study below and respond to the questions provided. The case study highlights key areas where moral issues arise.

Case Study

You are a new graduate nurse on a ward and have been assigned to work with a senior nurse who is renowned for her abusive and bullying behaviour towards students and new staff. While she has been welcoming and friendly towards you, you observe that she mistreats another new graduate nurse whose first language is not English. She allocates him a heavier workload than others and withholds important patient information from him so that he looks foolish among his colleagues, and which increases the risk of him making preventable mistakes. She speaks to him rudely, denies him educational opportunities and talks about him with other senior staff. Others also observing her behaviour towards the new graduate say and do nothing to counteract her conduct or to assist the new nurse. You notice that he is distressed, anxious and afraid to ask questions. However, you are not sure how to respond as you want to make a good impression and don`t want to risk the senior nurse retaliating against you and jeopardising your own position.
