As a charge nurse, one is in a key role to make health care work for everyone - patients, families, physicians, nurses, and all the many other people who are involved in the care and healing of patients. The word that may be unexpected is Leader.
Caregiver might be the descriptive word when one thinks of a charge nurse, but leader is what they really are.
A great charge nurse has to do with being a good leader. A great charge nurse leads a healthcare team and its individuals to manage the care of patients therapeutically.
Leadership is the key to molding a group of individuals into an effective team. If led well, the team can perform the many tasks and responsibilities required for the care of patients more effectively. A good leader can transform a list of tasks into a coordinated approach to healing.
Executive nurses may find it helpful to purchase several copies of this guide to strengthen confidence and skills among their new nursing managers and new charge nurses.
Cathy Leary holds a B.A. in psychology, an M.S. in nursing administration, and a nursing diploma. She is certified as an advanced nursing administrator.
Scott Allen is a Ph.D. candidate in leadership and change. He is involved in the American Society for Training & Development, the Organization Development Connection, and Leadershape.
