Abstract

The authors describe a charge nurse workshop based on a qualitative research study of charge nurse competencies and a commitment to include all levels of staff in the planning process. The workshop met the needs of nursing staff to have an interactive, educational experience that addressed leadership, human relations, and team-building skills needed for the charge nurse role and was fun. Evaluation of the workshop with lessons learned also is presented.
