    I'm in my first year as a nurse manager. I am trying to figure out what I should do for the holidays for my staff. I was hoping you all could share your ideas with me on what you do for your staff. It will be out of my own pocket, roughly 65 employee...

  11. Some Questions

    Patience, hard work, people person. Know when to bite your tongue. You have to enjoy being in charge and making decisions, even when you're not sure of yourself. You have to be able to act like everything is okay, even when it's not. Leading by examp...
