FREE TRAINING: 3 Mistakes Even Smart NPs Make Interpreting Labs

The Right (and Wrong) Way to Ask Questions as a New Nurse Practitioner

Aug 20, 2019

When you're a new nurse practitioner, you need to make thousands of decisions a day.

(Which usually translates to thousands of questions).

I made mistakes as a new grad, and luckily for me, I had a very patient colleague who was there to help guide me.

In this video, I'll share:

  • Some of my mistakes (I'm a little embarrassed)
  • Three easy steps to make sure you ask questions the right way (so you get the answers you're looking for and build and maintain your colleague relationships)

(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

What are some of the strategies you use to collaborate with your colleagues and supervisor?

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thoughts directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.

Here's the link to the first video that I referenced.

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and see you soon.
