5 Ways to Land Your Dream Job as a Nurse Manager

nurse manager jobThere are a variety of reasons why nurses decide to leave the bedside and move into management. Some are eager for new challenges, along with a desire for more recognition and a higher salary. Others see the big picture when it comes to patient care, and would like to be in a position to facilitate positive change in a highly fragmented healthcare system.

This desire to improve and reach for a higher level of excellence is an intrinsic trait for leaders. When you’re not content with the status quo for yourself, it’s likely you’ll also work hard to raise the status quo for colleagues and for patients. This can translate into a vision for a better healthcare system, through initiatives for disease management, wellness promotion, community outreach, public health, and patient safety. But the move from clinical practice to management represents a huge change and requires a new skill set.

So how do you get there?

Believe it or not, even if you’re brand new to nursing, you can start laying the foundation for a career in management right now. Take a look at our checklist, below, to assess where you stand now and what you’ll have to do to land your dream job.
