Nurse Leadership Seminar

Get a Competitive Edge on Staff Retention and Satisfaction

Become the Boss No One Wants to Leave

Nurses’ expectations of their perioperative leaders have shifted dramatically from “command and control” to a coaching approach focused on helping nurses learn and grow as professionals. The nurse leader is the linchpin in staff recruitment and retention – and key to reducing nurse turnover. 

Are you prepared for this role?
