With increasing numbers of nurse leaders approaching retirement, succession planning is a chief area of concern. To help bridge any potential leadership gap, the annual OR Manager Conference gears many of its sessions to new nurse managers with little to no management experience.
Conference organizers have engaged veteran leaders to walk attendees through everything from basic financial and supply chain management to the structure of accountable care organizations and the subtleties of true professionalism.
New managers may choose from these and a plethora of other breakout sessions to gain the skills they need for successful leadership. One of the most valuable will likely be the “Ask Me Anything” discussion with experienced OR leaders from HCA Healthcare, Lowry Surgery Center, the Cleveland Clinic, and Vanderbilt University Medical Center answering audience questions on Thursday, September 19.
