Being a front line nurse leader, such as a charge nurse or a house supervisor is one of the most difficult and yet rewarding roles for nurses working in acute and long-term care. Most nurses are not adequately prepared for the challenges thrust upon them when they first take on this important role. MOLN recognizes the need for training specifically geared toward the charge nurse and are providing an educational experience for both new charge nurses and experienced charge nurses (and other front line nurse leaders regardless of title) looking to refresh their basic leadership skills.

The workshop will focus on the role of the charge nurse and cover topics such as conflict resolution, communication skills, building an effective team, how to handle difficult situations and practical strategies for survival as a charge nurse.
