This is Week 3: Nursing Manager Role Conflict Problem-Based Learning Scenario. This week’s scenario involves the conflict experienced by a new, inexperienced Nurse Manager. › Janice has been a staff nurse in the intensive care unit (ICU) for the last five years. When a job opening became available to be Nurse Manager of the ICU, she applied but didn’t think she would get the position since she did not have any managerial or leadership experience. The chief nursing officer (CNO) meets with Janice and suggests that a mentorship program would help her to further develop the leadership abilities she will need for the position. The CNO suggests that Nico, a senior Nurse Manager within the organization, would be suitable and willing to provide mentorship support. › Janice meets with her mentor, Nico. Nico asks about Janice’s expectations and aspirations regarding her career and the mentoring process, “What would you like to gain from this relationship? Do you have any concerns about your new role? What skills would you like to have? What challenges do you see in becoming a successful leader?” Janice recognizes some deficits in her current leadership knowledge and skills and now regrets taking on the Nurse Manager position. In this scenario, you will need to answer 3 questions: 1) What type of role conflict might Janice, the new Nurse Manager of the ICU, experience? Explain your answer. 2) Describe the pros and cons of taking on the role of a Nurse Manager without experience. 3) Discuss how Nico, the mentor Nurse Manager, can assist Janice in her new role.
