Job performance includes your work habits, how you interact with people, and your competency.
Three skills that improve job performance include being a team player, being flexible, and organizing your work.
The ability to get along with other people is a necessary skill for any health care worker. In order to be a effective team player, you will need to be respectful, considerate, and cooperative.
A good team player is able to follow directions, so listen carefully when the nurse is giving orders or instructions.
Flexibility is necessary because your schedule and your assignment may not always be the same.
- The word organize means to arrange information, tasks, or things in an orderly manner. It involves planning, collecting supplies and equipment setting priorities, and managing your time.
- Planning: as soon as you get a report from the nurse, make rounds and check on all of your assigned patients.
- collecting supplies and equipment: being prepared shows courtesy and saves time for both of you.
- Setting priorities: The sickest patients are usually cared for first. Long, involved procedures, such as a complete bed bath, are best done early in the shift. Regardless of the changes, setting priorities helps you get the most important tasks done on time.
