Nurse Manager Certificate Program
Clinically competent charge nurses and unit supervisors, with strong leadership and communication skills, are essential to delivering high quality care. Nurses who serve in these roles must demonstrate both clinical expertise as well as the ability to function as frontline managers, often, with little or no formal leadership and/or supervisory training.
The Nurse Manager Certificate Program (NMCP) is an 18-hour course created for licensed nurses who are, or will be, serving as Unit Supervisors or Charge Nurses in a long-term care, assisted living or residential care community. The goal of the curriculum is to teach leadership, communication and coaching supervision skills. In addition, the program provides practical strategies for building an effective team, managing conflict, navigating challenging situations, directing staff and managing performance.
Online Nurse Manager Certificate Program
During this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, we feel it is essential to create space for nurse leaders to connect with peers, participate in education and support one other. To make it easier for Unit Supervisors and Charge Nurses to participate, we've condensed the curriculum to offer the course online (via ZOOM) in shorter sessions.
Our first Online Nurse Manager Certificate Program will be offered from December 11, 2020 to January 29, 2021. We will meet every Friday (except for Christmas and New Year’s Day) beginning at 1:30PM each day.
