Performance Management Advice for Nurses and Nurse Managers – We can do better. 

Discover actionable advice for nurses and nurse managers on navigating performance management in the healthcare industry. In a thought-provoking episode, I shared personal experiences and highlighted the importance of support, training, and a fair approach for better outcomes. 

Learn about the pitfalls of inadequate training, the significance of rapport and a safe environment, and the need to avoid personal attacks. 

In this episode, I also questioned the severity of consequences for mistakes and advocated for a more supportive and reasonable approach. Whether you’re a new graduate or an experienced nurse, find guidance on handling performance management with clarity, seeking external support, and actively engaging in the process. 

Emphasizing the value of support and investment in team members, I encourage healthcare professionals to create an environment conducive to growth and development. Let’s strive for improved performance management in nursing by implementing these valuable insights.
