The Nurse Manager Certificate Program is a robust Web-based educational tool using the latest evidence-based content. It is designed to help develop nursing management competencies necessary to function in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing health care environment.
The curriculum and content were created by nurses with both academic and clinical expertise in leadership and management. Each course contains didactic content and learner activities designed to involve and engage the learner. Continuing nursing education hours are awarded for successful completion of each course. When all of the courses in the program and the Post-Assessment have been completed, the learner will receive a Certificate of Completion of Sigma Theta Tau International’s Nurse Manager Program.
Each course is available to purchase individually.
Features of this Program:
Mapping: Each course is mapped to QSEN competencies and the AONE Nurse Manager Competencies to demonstrate the direct link between this program and the professional standards of nursing. These competencies served as a framework for course content development.
Interactive features: Throughout the courses the learner will encounter interactive features, like links to websites, pop-up boxes, and clickable buttons and boxes. It is important to ensure the pop-up blocker is turned off, and to watch for instructions on the pages for interactive features.
Audio and video content: The courses contain some audio and video content. Learners will need to have a computer with speakers or a headset in order to hear the content.
Knowledge check questions: These questions will be throughout the course material and are not graded. They are in place to call attention to main points and ensure comprehension.
Notes and sidebars: Notes and sidebars draw attention to important or additional information.
Learning activities: The courses contain short answer questions and additional activities to further understanding. The learning activities are specific to each course. They are built into the course and are linked to PDF versions which can be printed or saved and performed as an assignment or group activity. Each of the courses’ learning activities are listed under each course within this guide.
Final course test: The final course test must be completed in order to receive the continuing nursing education credit (CNE). Learners must score at least an 80% to pass.
Certificate of completion: Learners will be prompted to complete the post-assessment after completing all 16 courses. The courses do not have to be taken in any particular order. The completion of the Post-Assessment will generate a Certificate of Completion for the Nurse Manger Certificate Program.
