BrickBack- Some nurses prefer to work strictly with patients while others seek nursing management courses in order to obtain a nursing leadership and management position.
Many of these nurses want to supervise other nurses and develop their team to execute the best care possible.
This position also offers some training and orientation regarding new procedures and new medical devices that the hospital will be using.
In addition nursing healthcare management requires appropriate level of staffing and ensuring that the patients have enough nurses on staff to take care of them properly.
The nursing supervisor may need to see patients if the team is short handed or if the patient load becomes excessive.
