About the course

Management skills are required for all nursing staffs irrespective of discipline, role, function or seniority. Managerial skills are required to maintain the standard of care and ethical behaviour in providing services to clients. A nursing leader may not be a good manager. But, a Nurse Manager has to be a good leader. Nurse Managers should provide leadership and ensure the unit or department runs smoothly.

The Nurse managerial role includes planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating and controlling to accomplish work expectations. Updated clinical skills and knowledge are also important for a Nurse Manager for efficient execution of policy and procedures.

This course aims to enable nurses to gain and improve the skills required to adopt and function efficiently in a managerial role.
