Nurse managers (NMs) influence retention and job satisfaction, although many facilities lack NM training programs. A program examined staff nurse perceptions after their NMs participated in leadership training. NMs with limited training may find it more challenging to positively affect their nurses' job satisfaction and retention. This program evaluation suggests that nurse executive investment in and support of the NM role yield positive benefits for the NM leader and their staff.
