'I would like some opportunities to grow'

  • Comment

Can you advise this student nurse?

“I know we are student nurses, but I am longing to have a little more responsibility.

“I think I would be ready to spend a little more time with patients. I would still love supervision and input from others, but I think that a little more responsibility would really help me to grow.

“How do I express to my mentor and the nurses at my placement that I would like more responsibilities without being pushy? I don’t want them to think I don’t still need instruction, I just would like some opportunities to grow.”
