Conference InvitationThe American Association of Critical-Care Nurses and Contemporary Forums proudly present the second annual AACNNurse Manager Priorities, a dynamic program featuring forward-thinking leaders in nursing management.Learning content focuses on a nurse manager’s three critical responsibilities—managing the business, managingpeople and managing yourself. We used last year’s participant feedback to create an even more dynamic program thataccommodates individualized learning plans for a wide range of nurse manager roles and experience.Make the most of this opportunity for learning and leadership growth by filling out the AACN Nurse Manager Skills Inventorybefore the conference. It’s posted at www.aacn.org/managerskillsinventory. Bring it with you as a guide to select yourlearning opportunities.Program Highlights Skills Inventory: Interactive presentations and discussions align with the AACN Nurse Manager Skills inventory and the AACN-AONE Essentials of Nurse Manager Orientation e-Learning course categories — Managing the Business, Managing the People, Managing Yourself. Patient Satisfaction: In-depth discussion of strategies to improve patient satisfaction to impact healthcare funding and improve your hospital’s financial health. Communication: Widening the range of your communication styles will expand your influence and improve collaboration with your team and fellow leaders. Managing Up: Do you get stuck when you try to introduce new programs or processes to senior managers? Experienced nurse leaders will help you learn how to “manage up.” Meaningful Recognition: Achieve shared outcomes with your team when you effectively use meaningful recognition and acknowledgement. 18 Concurrent Sessions: This year’s hot topics include: Culture change, the “right” way to evaluate performance, orientees’ adaptation and readiness to fly solo, strategic management and planning, and recognizing staff growth and team achievements with meaningful award and reward programs.First timer?
