Job Description for Nursing Director

Nursing directors oversee all nursing activities within a health care institution. They direct, plan, and evaluate programs and overall care, as well as ensure the goals and overall philosophy of the department are followed. Nursing directors oversee staff, providing guidance and discipline as necessary; these directors often play a role in the hiring process for nurses as well. They help develop and finalize budgets, and they then must handle cost control and ensure their department remains within that budget. Additionally, nursing directors oversee their department's communication with physicians and other health care professionals in areas such as patient needs. Nursing directors consult with upper-level managers on high-level administrative decisions and provide information to supervisors related to the nursing staff's workload and budget.

Nursing Director in Las Cruces:
"Better Communication and Collaboration among Leadership."
I wish I knew what is considered when company hires into leadership roles. This company does not have a career ladder where advance in education is not compensated. It is stressful in the way that leadership mentions that we have autonomy to run clinic in a productive way, but leadership still dictates how we should staff without considering personal factors which affect retention of nursing staff. I am a hard worker, am compassionate about nursing and about the nursing staff I supervise. I try to better the staff by including them and encourage them to run clinic in an effective and easy for everyone. I encourage teamwork as it is how things get done well. Exceling in this job would be to have Administration/Leadership allow for advancement by taking in ideas and allowing us to implement them at the forefront. As a Nursing Director, I am expected to work the floor, supervise the patient flow, and at the same time, meet Administration's expectations on doing administrative work.
