The authors discuss how 13 nurse managers in Sweden experienced management direction and the management role before and 1 year after a professional development course in advanced nursing at the masters-degree level. The nurse managers related theoretical knowledge to an increased awareness of further possibilities inherent in managerial positions. They stressed the importance of networking for future support and growth.
