NUM intern seeing "bigger picture"

12 April 2018

Interning as Redland Hospital’s latest Nurse Unit Manager intern has opened Kellie Stevens’ eyes.

The Registered Nurse said she was thoroughly enjoying the experience having never worked in management before.

"I’ve been able to see the bigger picture," Kellie said. "To see how everything works."

Despite a huge increase in workload and missing personal interactions with patients, Kellie said it had been extremely beneficial to have been able to work across a number of areas of the hospital under the guidance of many of Redland Hospital’s NUMs.

"It’s been interesting to learn how one little change on a ward can have a domino effect on the rest of the hospital.

"To be able to stand back and watch and see what works well and what doesn’t - I have been very lucky."

Kellie said while she was unsure of exactly what the future held at the completion of the 6 month internship, a management role was definitely on her radar.
