Need for Program

As the health care system becomes more demanding and sophisticated, nurses are increasingly required to 'step up' into management positions. Often they are required to manage a broad range of staff, some of whom may demonstrate complex management challenges. It is essential that nurses who hold management roles have the best educational support that enables them to competently fulfil their role and to maintain a genuine sense of purpose and achievement.

Purpose of Program

This program teaches nurses who hold management positions how to lead and manage others so as to achieve sustainable results. It is a highly interactive program that enables the participant to learn how to deal effectively with complex staff issues that can erode confidence and self-esteem if left unchecked. As leadership needs to demonstrate a high level of accountability, participants will be expected to complete a self-evaluation leadership checklist prior to coming to the course.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this program it is expected that the participants will be able to:

  • Return to the workplace with improved management and leadership skills that can immediately be implemented
  • Demonstrate increased confidence when dealing with tough management issues
  • Effectively manage bullying behaviour and ensure that it is not repeated and does not affect patient outcomes and staff satisfaction.
  • Very interactive group participation is required eg singing
