    We are a group of students working in a BSN class regarding Nursing Leadership/Management. We would like to get a conversation going regarding how nurse managers are dealing with the issues of ensuring that new hires (mainly new graduates) are competent to deliver safe care to patients. It is impoortant that new nurses have adequate support from experienced nurses in addition to hospital supported education / training. It seems that with the nursing shortage and high staff turnovers, this must be a difficult dilema for managers. In addition, with the budgetary constraints that hospitals are increasingly being faced with, it would seem that employee education is the first department to suffer. It would be interesting to hear from nurse managers how these issues are being dealt with. Thanks in advance for your responses, P.Tomko
