Narration: Second Life Narration Visual

The nursing leader, Alicia, is donning a lab coat. She’s of African descent. Masaya, a Filipino who appears to be 25 years old, is dressed casually. They are seated in the hospital’s nurse leaders’ office, with Alicia at her desk.


a nurse manager We sincerely appreciate your attendance at today’s discussion. I appreciate you visiting with me on your day off when we can have a better chance to communicate since it is so busy when you are on duty. In order to receive payment for this time, make sure to clock in.

I want to talk about how you are adjusting to working on our unit in general and in the United States in particular. How are things?

employee nurse I appreciate you asking me in, ma’am. I could care less. On my day off, I typically clean my apartment. Because it is so small, it only requires ten minutes. (We both laugh.)

How do I feel it is going, really? Don’t get me wrong, though. Even though my preceptor is fantastic and I love my profession, it hasn’t always been easy. For instance, when I started reporting the other day using my patients’ surnames rather than their first names, I saw that a number of the nurses were rolling their eyes. It sounds strange here, but this is how I was trained to do it in the Philippines.

Additionally, my preceptor informed me that when I reply to everyone with “Yes, ma’am” or “Yes, sir,” it doesn’t come across as respectfully and instead makes people feel jaded.

Additionally, a few of the nurses are arranging dates for me. They are aware that I am married and that my wife is a nursing student in Manila. They believe we have broken up since I’m not living with her while I’m over here working to pay for her education.

a nurse manager I appreciate you being so open with me. Do you have any further information to share?

Employee nurse: That is all that can be thought of. It can be challenging, but I’m trying to fit in. I didn’t anticipate how difficult moving to the United States would be. But I’m adamant about keeping my job. It was a wonderful chance.

a nurse manager First of all, I want you to know that since you started working here, I’ve noticed a lot of improvement. Let me consider what you mentioned and how I might be able to assist you and the employees in understanding one another’s points of view.
Enjoy the remainder of your free day.
