Leaders may escape degree demand


management is no longer just about nursing but includes the management of other resources such as personnel, financial, material, etc and further management training is essential for a leadership role whether this ends in a diploma or a degree. Experience in nursing and managing teams is vital but unfortunately no longer sufficient for a management role in current organisational settings. Successful management through the appropriate training raises standards of patient care, in turn through recruitment and retention of staff, through motivation, conflict management, stress reduction through good time and task management, absence of bullying and a congenial and collegiate working climate where everbody wants to work. This all takes highly skilled and well trained managers and at present this is most probably best achieved through higher education such as a Master's Degree or MBA.
