Nurse Managers

 Nurse Managers, whether in hospitals, long-term care, community clinics, or other healthcare settings, are an increasingly important part of the healthcare delivery system. Often with a span of management responsibility that covers significant numbers of staff and even multiple shifts, the nurse manager performs a key role in the process of coordinating the multiple elements of patient and client healthcare.

The Colorado Health Institute’s “2008 Colorado Registered Nurse Survey” states that 17% of the registered nurses in the state work primarily in an administrative capacity, indicating that over 9,000 Colorado nurses perform work that is administrative or mangement in nature.
