The health institutions can decide to take on board a nurse manager to take on the role of taking charge of the full time nursing assistants and have another taking charge of the part time nursing assistants. At the same time, a nurse manager might be in charge of both the full time and the part time nursing assistants. In both cases, dealing with either category of the nursing assistants has its own challenges which must be tackled differently. This business research report will undertake to explain the differences in the management and performance skills for nurse managers dealing with the full time nursing assistants and those dealing with the part time nursing assistants. ...
e of differences in management roles as well as skills in managing fulltime and part time nursing assistants; the vast health related field in which the nursing management career has importance and is utilized; and the critical worked performed by the nurse managers which resonates around administration issues as well as areas of communication.
Problem statement and significance of the study
The following business research report is an in depth capture of the differences in management and skills requirements for the nurse managers who manage either the part time or full time nurse assistants. Nurse Managers do adopt different managerial skills when dealing with either of the two groups of the nurse assistants in order to get them to perform at all levels of their work. Since they are charged with the role of organizing for the daily activities and the control of the activities expected of the nursing assistants, the nurse managers must come up with ways of meeting this requirement whether the nurse assistants are full or part time. The styles and skills adopted when managing the fulltime nurse assistants is different from that adopted when managing part time nursing assistants since, though these categories perform similar works, the time spent by the two groups of the nurse assistants with their patients is markedly different (Mathis and Harold 2004p444). This means that the nurse managers have to assign more than one assistant to a single long term patient to ensure that patients are afforded proper care. The report will indicate how the study has managed to bring out the differential input realized by the nurse managers dealing with different categories of the nurse assistants in terms of the time allocations.
