The purpose of this seminar is to provide clinical nurses with the concepts, strategies and tools to become effective charge nurses and managers. Advanced critical thinking, managing a complex and diverse workforce, and becoming a transformational leader will be addressed.
Many nurses today find themselves in positions of leadership because they excelled clinically. However, little has been done to help today’s nursing leader manage the challenges of today’s changing healthcare system and workforce. This seminar will address key ideas and strategies so that these new nursing leaders will thrive and find new passion in their work.
