Clinical Nurse Managers- Two Difficulties They Face Managing in Hospitals
The Clinical Nurse Manager has a tough role – they have to manage a department’s staff to provide the best care possible to its patients. This job of managing a team of nurses comes with problems that the clinical nurse manager must overcome. I’m going to be talking about some of the areas that a CNM will have to deal with working in a hospital with a team of nurses.
The clinical nurse manager has a reoccurring problem. That problem is understaffing. The CNM has to manage their team effectively to treat their patients which will continually prove to be a challenge. Many hospitals struggle with staffing problems and CNM’s often have to manage it by giving overtime to their nurses and sometimes involves the unpleasant task of asking their team to work on their days off.
Dealing with Conflict
Fortunately, this problem that management in nursing deals with is not as common as it could be considering the stakes can be very high in the hospital. Conflict in the hospital staff is often dealt with by the nurse manager. The clinical nurse manager will have to become adept at dealing with conflict appropriately. There is considerable pressure on nurses which can ignite conflict or balloon it’s size making it essential that the CNM can treat conflicts in her team or with management effectively.
Here’s a helpful link to a really informative journal article on conflict management strategies for nurse managers: https://journals.lww.com/nursingmanagement/fulltext/2012/02000/Keeping_the_peace___Conflict_management_strategies.13.aspx
You could imagine how the two mentioned challenges faced by clinical nurse managers can be interrelated. A shortage in staff causing a conflict. A conflict causing a shortage in staff. It is fortunate that conflicts among the team are rare and treated carefully and nurses are flexible in work often taking on overtime and extra days when it’s unwelcome. This certainly makes the job of the clinical nurse manager that bit easier.
Detox nurses are mostly commonly understood to help those who are looking for aid with dealing with their alcohol and drug abuse. However, alcohol and illegal substance abuse are not the only addictions that detox nurses treat. After all, the science is in on gambling addiction and brain activity for gambling addicts is comparable to substance addicts such as heroin and cocaine and they suffer similar withdrawal symptoms to drugs abusers too. I will be discussing how a detox nurse treats patients that suffer from gambling addiction.
Unlike with other addictions, compulsive gambling will not drastically affect physical appearance and physical health, so it can often go unnoticed and untreated. The addict themselves may also be reluctant to admit that they are addicted and it is the work of the detox nurse to help their patient come to the realisation that they are addicted and they need help before treatment can start. The detox nurse needs to know that their patient truly wants to help themselves work on controlling their compulsive gambling.
The detox nurse knows that a patient acknowledging their addiction, and acknowledging that it is a problem and sincerely wanting it to change is the first step, but it is not enough. Nurses that specialise in addiction will work on helping their patients’ habitual behaviour that is not helping their pursuit to control their addiction. There will be activities and behaviours for a gambling addict that make it difficult to resist their urges. The detox nurse will help their patients recognise their behaviours that do not help their treatment.
A detox nurse develops a treatment plan that’s tailored to their patient’s needs. A treatment plan a detox nurse prescribes will be the roadmap for their patient. They have a plan that they issue to their patients and will explain to their patients each step and action involved and continually manage the patient’s progress.
Detox nurses treat all kinds of addiction in their patients. As you can imagine, they all require different approaches and treatments. This means detox nursing requires a wide range of knowledge on addiction and many ways to treat it. Gambling addiction provides its own specific problems to patients and to the nurse treating them. It is remarkable that detox nurses can treat a wide variety of patients effectively.
Quite often, when one thinks about changing career or looking to get a similar position in the same industry, we think about the responsibilities involved and if our interests, skills and personality are well suited for it. We are focused on the task of gauging if we would like that job more than the one we currently hold.
It’s common for nurses to move into different units in the hospital. Staying in healthcare and for many, the same hospital means little has to be left to the imagination regarding the tasks they’ll be asked to do, the people they’ll be working with and the environment they’ll be working in. Knowing a lot about a job change like this means you can focus on other variables that are just as important – does the position involve shift work, the salary, the qualifications required.
A nurse I was speaking to was a midwife when she decided she wanted to become a Fertility nurse. Later, she reverted back to midwifery. I asked her a few questions about her experience:
I asked her why she moved into fertility nursing from midwifery. She enjoyed midwifery and she took this as a good indication that she would enjoy being a fertility nurse. The deciding difference was a preferred work schedule in fertility nursing. It allowed her to work shifts. Keeping many factors constant, in her instance the industry, place of work and the area of work – pregnancy remained unchanged and this allowed her to make a decisione based on practicality.
Advice for a nurse moving into fertility nursing: Do your research on fertility nursing. Learn what training is necessary and learn what is involved in working as a fertility nursing.
Is training necessary to become a Fertility nurse?
Becoming a fertility nurse involves taking on more training. She told me you have to do an ultrasound course which isn’t required to become a midwife.
Why did she go back to midwifery?
Fertility nursing turned out to be different in some ways that didn’t appeal to her. The position was described as ‘very medical’ and required less interaction and relationship building with patients than in her role in midwifery. This was the difference that made all the difference.
It can be hard to know if another position in a different area is for you even with a lot of information related experience. Getting a strong understanding of the work you’re getting into will certainly make it easier. As the nurse I spoke to said, nurses should really think about why they want to move into another field.
UCD provides an ultrasound course for fertility nursing. Click below for more information:
