    Reality based management has a seminar that they do. It is one day long. The cost is $169 per person the 4th person is free. I haven't been in a long time. I did get their flyer in the mail. They will do on site seminar as well. Cost is more. It is also like 6 or 7 CEU's.

    if you want a nuts and bolts idea of what your current charge nurses do, have them write it down and compile it into a Charge Nurse Resource Book or whatever you want to title it. I helped do that recently at my hospital, and no course given by staff development (who don't work on the floor) will be sufficient or even scratch the surface.
