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.
