Nurses must be effective communicators and educators who assist patients and staff throughout difficult transitions while demonstrating financial accountability, systems thinking, and a constant awareness of patient care quality. As many nursing leaders, managers, and executives prepare to retire, it’s essential to prepare nurses who can exhibit these qualities to move into key roles.
