The nurse manager as mentor

Pediatr Nurs. 1991 Sep-Oct;17(5):493.


Mentoring staff is an essential role of the nurse manager. Developing a workable system and investing the time to carry it through has many positive outcomes for both the manager and the nursing staff. Staff nurses are able to function independently and make decisions concerning their practice as well as their work environment, leaving the nurse manager free to assume a true leadership role.
