You have consistently demonstrated a mature and efficient manner this term towards your clients, the staff on the unit, and your peers. I have seen
tremendous growth and development in your work with clients and in your nursing care. You have maintained a calm approach towards your clients
and demonstrated a satisfactory understanding of their needs. However, you still need to work on your confidence level. Please ask more questions!
If you seek reassurance that you are achieving the best patient outcomes, then evidence-based practice is the key. Asking for the evidence helps
build a sound framework of knowledge and ultimately will increase your confidence level. Also, practice the skills, procedures and protocols. The
more you practise, the better you will perform and the more confident you will become!
