What nurse leaders are saying about us

"More cohesive team"

"The nurses are a more cohesive team and moving towards a group environment where the charge nurses really stand out as leaders. They are really considering themselves as front line people and keeping their team members engaged. All of that correlates to the patient experience."

Jacqueline Napier - Manager of Talent & Development, Saint Anthony Hospital, Chicago IL 

"Better conflict resolution"

Critical thinking, decision making, effective communication, and conflict resolution all help to advance our nurses' practice. NCharge gave them a greater understanding of how effective communication and conflict resolution skills impact patient care.

Kerry Yeager - Clinical Informatics Specialist, Bristol Hospital, Bristol CT 

"Now in our nurse succession plan"

"This is what we needed for our frontline nursing leaders and supervisors. This is in line with our leadership development goals, and NCharge is now in our hospital's official succession plan."

Rosemary Cummings - Director of Critical Care, East Alabama Medical Center, Opelika AL

9 Leadership Barriers That Charge Nurses Face

Article Image

In a busy and stressful hospital environment, the role of the Charge Nurse as your frontline leader is very important. Not only are Charge Nurses responsible for providing the same quality care as other nurses, they are also tasked with ensuring that all procedures are running smoothly, that everyone is working together for the best outcome, and that they're doing so as efficiently and cost effective as possible. Clinical knowledge alone is not enough to allow a nurse to sufficiently fulfill this leadership role. Effective Charge Nurse leadership is dependent on many internal and external factors. 

There are barriers, both personal and organizational, that can hinder the success of these frontline nurse leaders. Removing as many of these barriers as possible will ensure your Charge Nurses will have the best chance of success possible.
