Nurses are often promoted to become nurse managers with little or no understanding of the leadership and business skills needed to succeed in the role. They pick up pieces of the leadership skill set, but are rarely given a game plan for the basics required to make the transition. From leadership and communication to the business knowledge necessary to run a unit effectively, this one-day interactive workshop is designed to provide you with key skills necessary to be a successful nurse manager.

- Describe the key competencies for nurse managers
