When I read the course contents, the first one that caught my interest is the major paper, requiring us to interview a nurse administrator. It indicates to conduct it as soon as possible, plan ahead, and give yourself leeway for unforeseen circumstances in your part or the person you are going to interview. Why I need to look somewhere else to interview when, I have a Chief Nurse Officer (CNO) at my work of employment. That very first week of class, I contacted the secretary of the CNO, requesting to interview the CNO Derek L. Curtis, and to give me the earliest possible appointment. October 28, 2016 from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm, was my scheduled appointment, the day prior to it, I received an e-mail notifying me to reschedule it on October 31, 2016. I chose him, since he is very hands on, intellectual, approachable, and reaching out to the nursing staff and the rest of the personnel working in our hospital. He graduated Magna Cum Laude, served in the United States Army as a Nursing Director, Chief Nursing Officer, Company Commander, and Training Officer. He held administrator positions in different hospitals as well. Furthermore, finding out what his strategic plan for the nursing staff and the hospital as a whole gave me a sneak peak of what is coming in the near future. Overall, it was an interesting experienced.
