Develop effective nurse leaders

Did you know that only 20% of charge nurses are provided formal training in their role?

Developing and training highly effective nurse leaders requires a proactive approach and is the logical first step for facilitating structural empowerment of charge nurses. HealthStream’s Leadership Development Program, developed by Sigma, enhances the ability of nurse leaders to manage patient flow, handle conflict, and address concerns of patients, families, and staff.
