Delegation Prevents Nurse Manager Burnout

Rebecca Hendren, for HealthLeaders Media, August 17, 2010

  • Set realistic timelines
  • Always provide the tools/resources they need to be successful
  • Grant the authority necessary for them to carry out what you delegate
  • With enough practice, nurse managers may be able to delegate enough that they finally feel comfortable taking a vacation.
