i have been an RN for exactly a year. My first 9-10 months were spent in a medical icu step down where I learned a lot. A couple months ago I started a internship within the same hospital that provides theoretical/practical education in medical and cardiovascular icu. The program is 3 months and we got a month left.
I have learned a lot, I have done great in exams and the nurses I have worked with in both cvicu and micu have told our educator that I ask good questions and am doing good. He told me that I need to be more assertive and have more of an edge when interacting. What do you think he means more of an edge?
I communicate and interact well with the team members, but he says as an icu RN I need to have a stronger personality... This kind of bummed me out because I don't really know what to do/change on how he wants me to do.
do you guys have advice on how I can do/improve on this?
Thanks in advance.
