Abstract

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to examine the relationship between experiential learning and nursing management competency among nurse managers (NMs) in the early years of a supervisory role.

 

BACKGROUND: The relevance of experiential learning to the development of NMs has been explored in an effort to harvest the knowledge embedded in shared NM practice narratives. However, the relationship between experiential learning and nursing management competency has not been empirically measured.

 

METHODS: The author developed an experiential learning-based program for NMs in the initial 3 years of a supervisory role. Sixty-three NMs were enrolled. The relationship between experiential learning and nursing management competency was evaluated using multiple regression analysis after completing this program.

 

RESULTS: The results of multiple regression analysis revealed a significant relationship between experiential learning and nursing management competency (P < .001).

 

CONCLUSIONS: A significant relationship was identified between experiential learning and nursing management competence.
