Nursing Management

Department of Public Health and Healthcare Management

Responsible for introduction: Lishtaba L.

Working in nursing management is a varied and diverse role, where no two days are the same. You will be responsible for leading a team of nurses and healthcare practitioners, advising them in patient care, as well as supporting their own needs on a daily basis. Nurse managers are also major proponents of holistic care for patients, particularly long-term patients or those with chronic conditions. Besides this, nurses in management roles are responsible for a range of administrative duties, from managing patient records to recruiting new members of staff.

Nurse managers are change agents within the healthcare setting, who work tirelessly to ensure patient wellness and safety. Management nurses also implement regulatory guidelines for patient safety and ensure staff is educated on care standards and can implement them as necessary.
