I am a very per diem nurse for DD patients in group home setting. I just give insulin to one patient. When I first started, two additonal patients.However, I am down to one, as the other residents no longer need injections. I work an average of 20 hours a month. They are just one hour visits and not shifts.
I feel some of the questions on this self evaluation do not even apply to me. However, it says that all questions must be answered.
One question that really has me stumped is how changes since my last evaluation have affected my job performance. And, what do I need to address these changes beside additional training. This is a tough one, as I have only one patient and work minimally. I would like to put not applicable. However, I am wondering if that would really be frowned upon, since it says they all must be answered.
I think they are looking for ways to improve. I don't think anything negative should be stated. The only thing that I can think of is that my client changed residence, and I needed to make sure that house staff was aware of his diet guidelines. But, that has not affected my job performance. So, would it be okay to say that this situation does not apply to me, as I only have one client.
I am a caregiver for my mother, so this job was what fit my needs at the time. However, things have changed, and I have help with my mother. I am looking for additional work, as at this compnay there are no other positons for LPN opening anytime soon. But, I would like to continue with this job, too. I don't want to shoot myself in the foot. Or, maybe I am overthinking this too much?
