New DONs, ADONs, and Nurse Managers are often promoted to the position from a purely clinical position. They accept the position and there is rarely an orientation to all of the facets of the work of the position. These are items that are typically not provided in nursing school and they do not have a training associated with them such as with the nursing home administrator education prior to passing the exam. Nurses in management positions have so much that they are responsible and accountable for each day it sometimes becomes overwhelming. Every nurse in a management position wants to do the very best they can. They want to be the leader their team members deserve but without some help that may be difficult to accomplish.

This 2-part live webinar series will provide information in two very significant categories for nurses in management positions. The first category includes the items they are responsible and accountable for on a daily basis. We will provide clarity and share recommendations that can be implemented to demonstrate knowledge for the role. The second category includes items that can have a negative impact on their ability to fulfill the role. This program will offer education, guidance, assistance, support and open communication with our expert presenter to help them be successful and know they are meeting the expectations of their position.
