Nursing Leaders Program Aims to Retain Administrators
By Elizabeth Christensen
Albany. NY – A new program aims to keep skilled nursing directors at the state's long term care facilities.
Directors of Nursing from seventeen nursing homes have graduated from the Nursing Leadership Program.
Nancy Levelle, a spokeswoman for the New York State Health Facilities Association, says directors of nursing tend to have a high turnover rate. They will generally work nine to eleven months and then move on.
Levelle says nursing directors may be skilled clinical workers, but don't have the management skills to cope with an administrative position.
The program teaches directorial skills and stress coping mechanisms.
