Nurse managers are responsible for managing one or more defined areas of nursing services. Nurse managers advocate for and allocate available resources to promote efficient, effective, safe, and compassionate nursing care based on current standards of practice. They promote shared decision-making and professional autonomy by providing input - their own and that of their staff - into executive-level decisions, and by keeping staff informed of executive level activities and vice versa. Other responsibilities vary depending on the size and function of the unit(s) they manage.

Nurse managers coordinate activities between defined areas, and provide clinical and administrative leadership and expertise. They facilitate an atmosphere of interactive management and the development of collegial relationships among nursing personnel and others. They serve as a link between nursing personnel and other healthcare disciplines and workers

throughout the organization and within the healthcare community. Nurse managers have major responsibility for the implementation of the vision, mission, philosophy, core values, evidence-based practice, and standards of the organization, and nursing services within their defined areas of responsibility.

Nurse managers are accountable for the environment in which clinical nursing is practiced. The nurse manager must create a learning environment that is open and respectful, and promotes the sharing of expertise to promote the benefits of health outcomes. The ability of nurse managers to enhance the practice environment is critical to the recruitment and retention of registered nurses with diverse backgrounds and appropriate education and experience. Nurse managers contribute to the strategic planning process, day-to-day operations, standards of care, and attainment of goals of the organization. Nurse managers collaborate with the nurse executive and others

in organizational planning, innovation, and evaluation.
