In my nursing career, I had this experience with my first job after graduating from nursing school.  I worked in a dialysis clinic.  It was not my first choice, but the market was flooded with nurses and it was hard to find a job.  The excitement and desire to become the best nurse I could evolve into took over and I jumped in with both feet determined to learn and grow.  Before I knew it, I had experience and growth within the dialysis clinic and became a charge nurse.  I contribute my success to the qualities I have that were identified by my resiliency score.  Some of the qualities I have that I tapped into are my strong work ethic, self-confidence, and empathy for others.  As a new healthcare leader, your role should be to put the right people in place, even if they are unqualified and ill-prepared, and provide them with everything they need to excel (Cockerell, 2008, p. 114).  The only requirement may be that the employee has a certification, for example, an accredited school for a registered nurse and carries an active license that is in good standing.  Employees that are willing to attend training classes and be oriented by a well-educated preceptor can become a qualified and well-prepared member of the team.  I believe my resiliency score helped me identify my skills in perception, intuition, and optimism that I believe are important to have in the leadership role.  Reference Cockerell, L.

Reflecting on your level of resilience discuss what you would do if you were faced with this situation or you had already experienced a similar situation in your healthcare career. Describe what you did to overcome this problem. After completing the resiliency quiz, I scored an 83, putting me at a level of very resilient!  The interpretation says that I am curious and constantly learning from my experiences, while also having the ability to adapt quickly. It says that I am also good at making lasting friendships, expressing my feelings and looking at things optimistically (Resiliency Quiz – How Resilient Are You?, n.d.). I feel that I faced a similar situation to Mr. Cockrell’s when I was introduced to my new intensive care unit for my internship program. I had only been a nurse for 7 months on an adult telemetry unit and had not quite prepared myself for what my new role would look like. Walking in I felt overwhelmed with all of the new technology, medications and medical terms being used around the unit. It felt like I had just graduated school all over again and I was a brand new nurse. Needless to say, I was not feeling very confident on that first day. To overcome these feelings, I just had to tell myself that this internship was an opportunity to learn my skills over time and under the supervision of a more experienced nurse. I also redirected my fears into an eagerness to dive in and work hard to learn as much as I could to help me become a better pediatric nurse.   Discuss how you would approach this situation as a new healthcare leader in your chosen field of practice. As a new healthcare leader I would approach this situation with as an opportunity for growth, knowing that there will be challenges along the way. I feel that approaching this situation with this outlook would help to diminish the stress and anxiety that I felt the first time I was introduced to my unit. Keeping a more open mind and setting myself up for the challenges that I know are ahead would have helped me to overcome them more quickly.   Discuss how your resiliency level impacted your response to the situation. Given my resiliency level, I feel that my intuition to ask a lot of questions along with my ability to adapt quickly helped me to navigate this internship. Throughout my 6 month internship I made sure to ask as many questions as I could, even if it meant writing them down for later. I would use any opportunity I could to ask these questions in the moment in order to understand their direct impact on the task I was completing. Doing this offered me the ability to adapt to my future experiences quickly and become more confident in my critical thinking skills. While there is no doubt that I had moments of fear and lack of self-confidence throughout my program, I believe my resiliency is what helped me to complete my program and become the nurse I am today.
