ANUMs play a central role in improving the clinical outcomes of a ward or unit. ANUMs not only support nurse unit managers with administrative, clinical, governance and managerial workload but are clinical leaders, facilitators, and role models for other staff. However, management knowledge and skills are needed for these positions.
This two-day seminar will assist nurses in the position of ANUM (or similar) to know how to effectively manage units in their workplace.
