The second helps nurse managers transform into empowered and authentic nurse leaders. The third helps nurses on the clinical “floor” execute flawless multidisciplinary communication in nursing to deliver the care you aspire to give.

Why Use My Help?

Why Use My Help?

Nurses find themselves in leadership roles – by choice or by necessity. You’re a capable nurse but when in charge in team nursing, shift coordinating or a management role, then self-doubt creeps in. Getting nurses to go to tea on time can be a battle. Your decisions can be met with apathy at best, outright obstruction at worst.  Getting doctors to listen to your patient assessment can be an unforeseen hostile encounter. I help solve that.

Nicole presented an excellent workshop and ensured all participants were involved. The program was presented over 4 workshops and worked well as a team building exercise for the 15 Clinical Managers taking part.
