Awesome, love the ability to share thoughts and ideas with other managers, thanks for the opportuntity.
I am new to nurse management, I have been an RN for 11 years from floor nurse to speciality area, charge nurse and now nurse manager. This is a big challenge for me. I started in the department when it was only me and another agency nurse, built it up to 6 nurses, transfered to another job and in three weeks the department was in trouble, no one would step up and take charge. After 5 months, I came back to be the nurse manager and have had a huge challenge of trying to get everything back in order and had a big physcian turn over in the process. We are a new hospital and still need alot of protocols and policies to be implemented. I am looking for any ideas to help make this easier and run more efficiently. Lots of patients, very little space to work with.
