Aloha!

Looking at our top local hospital, a nurse manager’s area of responsibility may include:

* 24-hour oversight and accountability for nursing units and other areas such as administration, clinical and operational management.
* Develop/monitor plans and activities to ensure:
- Delivery of high-quality patient care and services
- Effective planning and coordination of resources
- Achievement of goals and objectives
- Compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements
* Participate in the long-term planning of their assigned unit and area

Responsibility will vary based on organization and role. Be sure to look around for a good fit!

Lisa’s Answer

A nurse manager has great responsibility. She should be an experienced nurse in her area. She should have leadership qualities. She should be able to support mentor and engage her staff in the mission of her facility. She should possess time management skills, organization and people skills. Her responsibilities include budget planning for her unit in addition to all her other goals.
