Abstract

Charge nurses are untapped leadership resources that can be groomed for future advanced leadership positions in healthcare organizations. The purpose of this study was to understand the development needs for the charge nurse role. This study demonstrates they receive little or no training for assuming positions of leadership and offers suggestions for enhancement of preparation.
