Thanks for the replies!
As far as the books, the nurse manager recommended three:
1. Merenstein & Gardner- Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care
2. Deacon, et al- Core Curriculum for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing
3. Watson- Core Review for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing
Here are some of the strengths and weaknesses I wrote down:
Very safe, I ask plenty of questions, a team player, display leadership abilities, am eager to learn, I incorporate the family in the patient's care, and that I'm culturally sensitive (I live in the Silicon Valley, which is very diverse and cultural sensitivity is important).
Some weaknesses were that I need to work on communicating in a difficult situation such as death or decrease in positive outcome prognosis; I need to improve on practicing skills, and I would like to improve my Spanish to help me more effectively communicate with patients. Hope this helps!
