I've recently been offered the unit manager job on the unit where I currently work. I love our unit, I know the P&P, a lot of the "kinks" have been worked out (like the Manpower per pt days since we expanded beds)....anyway, I think I can handle the position and my boss said the hours are flexible.
My question is: do any of you unit managers also go to school? Do you struggle to fulfill both roles effectively? I had planned to go PT to get my masters in the fall and then this came up. I think I may still be able to do one class but not sure about two. I got my BSN 14 years ago so I really don't know exactly how much time a masters level class requires.
Any thoughts about juggling both? Experiences to share?
