Discussing the staff nurse\ s performance and ways she can improve-rationale: the nurse-manager should meet with the staff nurse to discuss her performance and ways she can improve. assigning the staff nurse several clients with multiple physical problems would be overwhelming, counterproductive, and unsafe because she has yet to demonstrate the priority-setting and decision-making leadership skills that this client load would require. letting her select her own assignments or giving her fewer patients could impair the morale of other staff nurses.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: management of carecognitive level: applicationreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 115.
