Further information:


The Head Nurse or Practice Manager role and the challenges associated with it can vary tremendously, depending on the environment, management and staff structure and practice type/size. Many may also have evolved into a management position with little or no training and/or support, and feel ill-equipped to deal with the array of responsibilities that are required of them, in what can and should be a fulfilling and rewarding position that could transform your career.

Whether you are planning on moving into management, are new to the head nurse or practice manager role, or have held this position for a while and just need some new ideas; then this module will assist you with some of those essential skills needed to be a confident and effective manager and leader.



  • Time Management - it can be so difficult to fit the variety of tasks we need to into our working day, but efficient time management is essential to get things done, free your time for important stuff, achieve that ever coveted life/work balance, and stay sane!
  • Delegation - we know we need to do this, right? But why and where does it go wrong? Why do we feel we can't pass some things along? Learn how to delegate effectively and for the good of everyone!
  • Successful meetings - ok, so we've all been to those meetings that seem to never end, and have no clear outcomes.. Learn some key strategies for ensuring meetings are organised, fruitful and enjoyable!
  • Reflection - Thinking about 'where you are, your strengths and weaknesses, how to move forward and where you want to be' are all essential skills for a successful manager, and will help you in areas beyond your work too.

By the end of this module, successful candidates will be able to:

  • Identify key strategies in achieving effective and efficient time management, applicable to own situation
  • Appreciate and implement the processes for successful delegation, with maximal benefits to all parties
