1. What did you actually learned from the unit.
I learned a ton about marketing and hospitals and employee unions and strikes. Most of all, I learned that I should not be trusted with negotiations.
2. Discuss your feelings/experiences from the team activities? Did it change your opinion on the subject? If so, how? If not, why?
My feelings on the team activities are mixed. I placed all of the buildings on our map. I wonder if I did a good job– none of my team members complained so I’m assuming I did ok. It was hard because we got to it kind of late in the game and so some of the real estate had been taken.
3. How you will utilize the information learned in your nursing practice.
Well, I do not ever plan on getting into marketing– that is not my jibe. However, I think that if I ever did get into management or marketing this would have been very helpful information. Also, I am going to look at where hospitals are placed now– I feel it is very strategic.
4. You personal feelings about the material covered.
I understand now why larger hospitals are in more populated areas. It makes sense but I never really thought about it before. I feel that it is good material to know in general just so that we can learn about teamwork skills.
