At a large, teaching healthcare facility, a nursing leadership task force designed an expanded role for head nurses, broadening their organizational responsibilities to enhance the quality of care, quality of work life, and operations. Acknowledging the limited educational background in management skills, the nurses needed additional instruction to perform competently and efficiently. An educational program was developed to facilitate the transition from head nurse to nurse manager.
