Digital guide provides ED managers with an easily accessible resource

DES PLAINES, Ill. (Nov. 15, 2017) – The Emergency Nurses Association released its new Emergency Department Manager’s Survival Guide, a digital reference for new and experienced ED managers. Since nearly half of U.S. medical care takes place in the ED, outstanding and informed leadership is essential to providing the best patient care.

Nurses must become accustomed to unique situations and topics while acclimating to a managerial role. The ED Manager’s Survival Guide serves as transitional tool to help them adjust to the nuances of ED management.

Topics covered include operations, human resource management, professional development, quality and safety, legal and regulatory information and finance. Authored by ENA members with extensive ED management experience, this “survival” guide was created specifically for nurse managers in emergency care.

“Like all nurses, the primary responsibility of ED managers is caring for patients,” said ENA President Karen Wiley, MSN, RN, CEN. “The ED Manager’s Survival Guide is a valuable and easily accessible resource for ED managers in their unique role, allowing them to focus on providing the best possible care in the ED.”

The 50 concise chapters of the ED Manager’s Survival Guide serve as a quick-reference resource for established managers, a go-to digital “mentor” for new managers and an educational tool for nursing students.

For nurses aspiring to ED leadership, the guide provides an introduction and path into understanding the higher responsibilities of ED management.

The ED Manager’s Survival Guide is now available in ENA’s Marketplace.
