Charge Nurse Program

  1. 0
    Hello all,

    I am putting together a charge nurse program and can't really find anything very useful out on the web or in my books. Do any of you have a power point presentation that I can "borrow" from? I really don't want to reinvent the wheel :uhoh21:

    Any information would be good - I have only been in the position of nurse educator for about 7 months and have already had to create 3 new programs from scratch. Starting to get carpal tunnel syndrom.

    What are you wanting to include in the "Charge Nurse" program, Corey?

    General information about roles and responsibilities of a charge nurse. We are a critical access hospital and the charge nurse might be the only "administrative" person on staff. I have all the stuff I want to include for our hospital specifics so I guess I am just looking for general stuff.

    I see. Very similar to the rural health rules/regs in that aspect.

    Have you links to any other Critical Access hospitals? Anyone associated with that type of hospital?

    I know when I set up a rural health clinic, I normally utilize what the state health guidelines and federal stipulations are. I feel fairly certain you can find the same thing for your state for that type of entity.

    Hi,
    Without knowing the questions they are going to ask I would be at a loss as how to help. They will probably ask you questions about staffing, response to a crisis, what to do if..., how to handle confilct and things like this. Charge is more about being able to deal with crisis and conflict management and a bit about management depending on the size of the facility. Good luck and hope it goes well.
