Many times, nurses are promoted to the manager level with little to no previous experience in leadership roles. In some cases, nurse managers can end up feeling overwhelmed and overworked, which can trickle down to their nursing staff.
So, in an effort to educate new nurse managers nationwide, the American Nurses Association is launching a new two-day seminar, called “New Nurse Managers Workshop: Your Roadmap to Success” on November 7th and 8th in Silver Spring, Maryland. This class aims to arm nurse managers with the necessary leadership and business skills they need to succeed.
According to the ANA’s Leadership Institute website, at the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Synthesize essential skills of nursing leadership and their impact on staff and the work environment
- Translate performance gaps into implementation strategies
- Design a roadmap to achieve leadership success
- Describe key competencies for nursing managers
Keynote speakers Joyce Batcheller, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN and Rose Sherman, EdD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN will cover a range of topics and issues facing nurse leaders today, including nurse fatigue, budgeting, staffing concerns, communication skills, and leadership roles.
