Empowering Nurse Managers to Get Better
Day: Wednesday, Oct 3
Time: 2:30pm - 3:20pm
Whether managing a unit, division or service line in a hospital or a rehabilitation center, the nurse manager’s core purpose is to ensure everything functions like a well-oiled machine, including patient care planning, quality improvement, goal setting, staff schedule and assignment oversight, performance, professional growth and the ongoing provision of educational and career enhancement opportunities. At the same time, staff members – CNAs, technicians, nurses, etc. – need their nurse managers to communicate expectations, provide advice and guidance, as well as encourage, recognize, direct, and generally coach them so that they can fulfill their roles and responsibilities. It’s a lot to ask one person and not all nurse managers do it well. With all the changes currently underway in the healthcare delivery system and the nursing profession, a comprehensive nurse management program is critical for early career nurse managers. In ways both direct and indirect, unit nurse managers play a key role in patient and nurse outcomes. This session will discuss how to develop a nurse management curriculum for your organization, leveraging a variety of learning modalities, to ensure content absorption and adoption by your nursing staff.
