1) Think about your current or former workplace. Are you aware of any specific actions that were taken to protect employees from workplace violence? What more could you suggest? Do you have policies in place to protect nurses against workplace violence?  Have you witnessed workplace violence and if so how did management handle the situation?

2) How could you use the Nursing Process to address a staff member’s performance shortcomings? Is it important to be visible on the units to be able to properly evaluate employees? Should you wait to the annual evaluation to address an employee’s short comings?
