    Help! The "Life" of a Nursing Manager?

    I was like you for several months and finally decided it was not worth it. While I was working as staff, no one was doing my work. One thing we did was cross train a group of intersted ICU and TCU nurses to the ED. They were assigned to one of our five bed monitoring units, very much like their environment in TCU or ICU. Most of the staff were not working full time and therefore it only resulted in orientation pay not overtime. It has worked out very well and also gives non ED staff a taste of the ED. You may even be able to recruit from this group if they like it enough.

    maintaining competency levels

    I am a MSN student with a role option of nurse educator. I am looking to teach nursing students at the Associate Level. Currently I work as a manager and have been away from the bedside for a few years. What are your thoughts about requiring nurse educators to continue to practice bedside nursing in order to maintain their clinical skills for teaching? How do you assess a nurse educators competency? Do you feel that it would discourage nursing instructors from entering the field if they also had to work clinical hours in addition to teaching? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks! Andrea
