I need a name for my position, please help

  1. Hello fellow nurses

    i was just promoted to a leadership role, it used to be called just "admit, discharge and transfer nurse" but since I have taken role they have made it into leadership. I do all of those things but I am also in charge of patient satisfaction, quality control, being a charge when not fixing problems or admitting discharging or transferring patients, patient complaints ect.

    I need a better position name, more leadership like. Patient quality coordinator? Which I don't even know if that makes sense. Please give me your ideas on names.

    Thanks in advance.

    Charge Nurse. Everything you described is what Charge Nurses (who work in a non-union capacity) will do. If you are not ever a Charge Nurse (work directly with patient care), then I agree that you are a Quality/Patient Experience Coordinator.....

    The nurse on our unit who is the charge nurse + (she does all the schedules and is a de facto leader of the unit in addition to being charge) I call my clinical coordinator, even though her actual title is "RN" (we don't have permanent charge roles at our facility)

    Just adding another vote for Clinical Coordinator... this is the title I've frequently seen attached to the role.

    A hospital near me has a position called Manager of Patient Experience. This person mostly dealt with the Press-Ganey numbers and training the staff on how to raise them but it sounds like something that could also be applied to your job.
