From Kati Kleber, MSN RN
Hi, I'm Kati Kleber, and I've been a nurse since 2010. I've worked in cardiac med-surg and neurocritical care, and held multiple leadership positions. (Click here to learn more about me!)
I remember what it was like to be intimidated by the thought of being a charge nurse. I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned over the years working as a charge nurse myself, observing many others with various weaknesses and strengths, and holding different leadership roles in different capacities.
While you’ll absolutely learn on the fly at work, I want you to walk into your first shift as a charge nurse with all of my experience and lessons I learned the hard way as well. You’ll be miles ahead of where I was, because you’ll have realistic expectations and a solid structure for growth – and, you won’t be your own worst enemy, like I was!
I look forward to helping you grow into the unit’s favorite charge nurse.
