Nursing Administration

There is much more to nursing than checking patient vital signs and filing charts. Nursing administration involves the organization and supervision of nursing teams in doctor's offices and hospitals. Read on to find out what it takes to launch a career in this leadership field.

Inside Nursing Administration

Nursing administrators are responsible for overseeing the activities of nursing staffs at hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and other health care facilities. Though specific duties vary at each organization, nursing administration professionals might perform similar practices, such as preventative care, community outreach, assisting nurses with patient emergencies, leading meetings and conducting facility inspections.

Nursing administrators should possess strong leadership and interpersonal skills, attention to detail and problem-solving skills. As most nursing teams work 24 hours a day, nursing administrators should also be willing to work long hours, including evenings and holidays.
