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.
 
The next NMCP class will be offered in the fall of 2019.
