Nurse managers are the glue that keeps the nursing unit operating smoothly, effectively, and as professionally as possible.
They must have strong communication skills, and know-how to assemble a well-balanced and positive team of staff. Managing a team of nurses can be a challenge, and having strong leadership skills is a must.
Some of the tasks that nurse managers have on a day to day basis include:
hiring new nurses, handling nurse retention, managing a unit budget, making sure the unit complies with optimum nursing standards and practices, stepping up to help nurses with difficult situations, and even talking to families of patients when needed.
These positions are, of course, highly sought after, and with good reason. It’s an industry that’s expected to bloom in the coming years; the position is generally compensated well. This is one reason why nurse managers can look for work all over the country.
