Assistant nurse managers help to support the nursing manager of a healthcare facility or department. Assistant nurse managers are second in command and should be able to lead the facility or department when the nurse manager is away. Together with the nurse manager, they are responsible for coordinating and delivering top quality patient care.
Because assistant nurse managers share managerial duties with the nurse manager, responsibilities will vary. Depending on how tasks are divided, assistant nurse managers may be in charge of making schedules, including factoring in vacations, sick days, maternity leave, breaks and filling in gaps in the roster. They will also have a hand in hiring, which can include interviewing, training, conducting performance reviews, disciplining and firing employees. Along with the nurse manager, they typically attend rounds for a good portion of the day.
Although assistant nurse manager jobs are managerial positions, they are still patient facing. Assistant nurse managers will have regular nursing duties and have patients of their own, often filling in when another nurse is sick.
To qualify for assistant nurse manager positions, candidates need to be an RN with a few years of experience. They should have an understanding of healthcare administration, policies and procedures in order to ensure that all nurses are in compliance with regulations.
