Jessica, a Millennial (Generation Y) nurse working on a medical-surgical unit, recently completed her first year of practice. Ralph, her manager, is pleased with her transition and believes she’s making good progress toward becoming a competent nurse. 

During her first evaluation, Jessica tells Ralph she has mastered the role of being a med-surg nurse. She wants to know the next thing she can do in her career to reach her goal of becoming a manager. Ralph is disconcerted by her self-assessment, which he thinks doesn’t accurately reflect where she is as a professional. A Baby Boomer, he advanced up the leadership ladder one rung at a time. He impatiently tells Jessica she hasn’t achieved competency as a staff nurse. He explains that a management position is a long way off and she needs to focus on mastering her current role. 


Your Reflection

In your reflection, please draft a paragraph or two based on the prompt below:

Jessica and Ralph each come to you, the nurse manager, with complaints about the interaction.

  2. As the manager, what are some of the underlying sources of conflict that might be at play?
  4. What strategies can the nurse manager utilize to resolve the conflict between Jessica and Ralph and ensure a healthy working relationship moving forward?
