When we’re nurse practitioner students, we’re so focused on the clinical aspects of our jobs that most of the time when we graduate, we’ve caught by surprise.

There’s an entirely new role we need to step into as well: delegating, supervising and managing staff members.

It’s especially tricky when you’re supervising someone, but you’re not technically their boss-- like medical assistants and nurses.

And it’s also difficult because as nurses, we’re so used to working as a team, pitching in, and it feels like we should just “do it ourselves” when it comes to delegating.

How to Delegate as a New NP

In this week’s video, I’m interviewing executive and leadership coach Jackie Kindall with the questions from the audience about delegation and managing team members as a new nurse practitioner.

We cover:

  • Why it’s actually a not helpful for us to “do it ourselves” and how delegation is actually helpful and important to do
  • The common pitfalls new nurse practitioners and leaders experience when it comes to delegation and supervision
  • How to effectively delegate and troubleshoot when things are not going well
