INTRODUCTION
Methodology for How to Use the Nurse Manager Inventory Tool
to the Nurse Manager Inventory Tool
The critical influence of nurse managers in shaping healthy work environments is undeniable. Of every leadership role in health care today, a nurse manager has the most direct impact on the care and services that patients and families require throughout their health care experience. Theirs is a far-reaching role with particular impact on achieving a professional culture that successfully recruits and retains expert nurses.
In today?s dynamic and complex health care environments, safe and effective care will only be assured when health care leaders can make their optimal contribution to the effort. Nurse managers must not only fulfill their daily responsibilities, they must lead the change demanded that will secure a bright future for American health care.
The Nurse Manager Inventory Tool captures the skills and behaviors that are envisioned for the successful nurse manager. This inventory allows the nurse manager to perform a self-evaluation that can be paired with the nurse manager?s supervisor?s assessment to create an individualized professional development plan. The inventory is based on the three domain model initially developed by three national nursing associations1. The successful nurse manager must gain expertise in all three domains. This tool is presented to assist with that professional assessment and development.
1. The three national nursing associations were the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), and the Association of peri-Operative Registered Nurses (AORN). In 2006, AONE and AACN formed the Nurse Manager Leadership Partnership (NMLP) to continue this leadership work.
