As a new DON, ADON or nurse manager, you have so much to think about and sometimes it becomes so overwhelming that you begin to think you may have made a mistake in accepting the position. There is a myriad of things that you are responsible for and have to manage and sometimes you are not even sure that you understand all of the things that are included in your daily workload. That's when you ask yourself “what do I need to be successful”?

There is help! We understand that you want to do the very best that you can and you want to be the leader and provide the leadership that attracted you to the position but without some help that may be difficult to accomplish. This day will provide information in two very significant categories. The first category is the items that you are responsible for and accountable for and we want to be sure that you have the help you need to understand these items and some recommendations that you can implement to demonstrate that you know your role. The second category includes items that can have a negative impact on your ability to fulfill your role and feel like you did a good job. Both categories are important because they can each negatively impact your role and you. We want to provide some assistance and support for you through this day of education, communication, networking and support. We hope you will join us!
