INTRODUCTION 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.
According to White, K. R. (2014) “Nurse were the original servant leaders—at the patient’s beside and in communities- and now they are perfectly positioned to take their experience with leadership to a heightened level. In the new world order, nurses have moved from the background to the boardroom, and they have been put in the spotlight to lead transformation of quality healthcare.” (pg.27). White describes how far nursing leaders have come and play an important role on the healthcare team. In their personal experienced they understand what it takes to be a bedside nurse and a second opinion to the physicians. Nursing Leaders They spend their time in areas such as human resources, business planning, quality reporting, information management, and report writing.
Leadership in Nursing Essential to quality patient care is the effective functioning of an interdisciplinary team. In most clinical settings, nurses have the closest relationship with patients. For that reason nurses need to take an active role in the interdisciplinary team, they are the front line providers, ensure communication between team members and the patient, and continually advocate for the patient and family. Nurses know how care should be delivered. They can ensure smooth handoffs as the patient transitions through the continuum.
The report would give the recommendations for the nursing profession to create a plan that would enable all nurses to be well-positioned to lead change and advance health. The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report that was produced by the committee after two years of research was conducted (www.thefutureofnursing.org). The report contained recommendations in areas such as training, education, professional leadership, and workforce policy in which would enhance the ability of nurses to care for patients in today’s health care system with all the changes. The committee recommended different ways for nurses to practice and better access and the delivery of care to patients. The recommendations that were suggested by the report would improve the nurses’ workforce and improve patient outcomes.

My long term-goal, professionally, is to become a clinical educator. Mateo (1998) described clinical educator role in a clinical setting include clinical and professional development of staffs. In clinical development, main responsibility of the educator nurse is to provide structured program for orientation, in-service program and evaluate competency of staffs. Professional development of a staff is also one of many important roles.
Nursing has become a much demanded career and along with it many educational theory and practice concepts has emerged. More knowledgeable, skilled, and an art nurses are most sorted out. A well prepared nurse is necessary in this technological highly developed health field to cultivate a potentially mechanistic environment. To promote this, Doh/ENB,2001a “Stresses that the environments should provide an arena in which students can experience good quality care and treatment of patients and clients” As such, environment in practical area for learning, places an important role in developing a high quality nurses. The objective of this paper is therefore to critically analyse the significant of practice arena in facilitating learning and how I as a registered nurse practitioner can induce learning in the practice area for a better learning environment.

One of my job duties as a nursing supervisor would be to make sure that all staff members are striving for the same goals for the patient. Interdisciplinary care provides a formal and organized approach to patient care.

The unit orientation may teach the newbie nurses to lead by example and learn to become competent in the nursing field.
