Nursing leadership/management role

Interview two persons in a nursing leadership/management role, such as a Charge Nurse/Team Leader, Head Nurse/Manager, Director of Nursing, or Chief Nursing Officer. Select one leader that has been in the role less than two years and the other that has at least two years of leadership or management experience. Compare and contrast the findings from the two interviews with the best practices identified in the literature. Then reflect on your own perceptions of the roles.

In your interviews, ask each person the following questions:

  • What are the qualifications for your management position?
  • What type of training did you receive for this position?
  • Describe a challenge you have had related to decision making, staffing, conflict or discrimination. How did you overcome it?
