New Nurse Manager, previously in low level middle management

  1. Hello everyone,

    I am wondering what advice or resources can be be given to a new nurse manager? I don't foresee a reason why background shouldn't go well. I will be starting a position as a nurse manager at the VA hospital. I am just wondering if there are any resources I can be looking at now and how to approach this all being new?

    Very good! The VA and corrections, I hear is slow that way. However, I hear good things about the VA, so you should do just fine. Keep us posted after you have a chance to settle in.... GL!

    When I transitioned from the bedside to leadership I took the AONE and ACCN's online course called Essentials of Nursing Management. It was $600 but was worth 40 CEUs and totally worth the cost. I thought it was really helpful.
