Grand Canyon University Nurse Manager Discussion
The nurse manager or leader who appears and acts human, rather than untouchable behind a desk, will be more valued and respected by staff in most cases. However, the opposite may be true as staff may feel too comfortable with the manager to the extend of perhaps learning what buttons to push in order to get a pass on errors or the lack of follow-through with an assigned task. I think this can be a tough line to walk for managers. Especially for most women-we want to be liked so we may not be as firm as necessary to see that the job gets done.
