Job Description


A nurse supervisor is responsible for managing staff, overseeing patient care and ensuring adherence to established policies and procedures. She is charged with assigning staff and monitoring their activities, and with helping to recruit and train new personnel. The nurse supervisor also acts as an interface between her staff, their patients, and the patients' families, as well as between her staff and the hospital's physicians. Administrative duties are another sizable part of her responsibilities.

  Patient Care

As with virtually all nursing positions, patient care is the main focus of the nursing supervisor. She spends part of her time providing hands-on care to patients, but primarily oversees the patient care provided by shift nurses. The supervisor ensures there are sufficient nurses assigned to each shift to care for the number and type of patients on the floor. She ensures that the care the nurses provide to their patients is appropriate and comprehensive, and that staff-patient interactions are handled the right way. The nurse supervisor might also interact directly with a patient's family members to answer their questions and ease their concerns.

Nursing Staff Recruiting

Part of the nurse supervisor's job is ensuring staffing is at adequate levels to meet patient needs. A necessary precursor to effective staffing is recruiting, which also falls to the nurse supervisor in some hospitals. He observes student nurses in various stages of their training to identify those he believes are good candidates for inclusion in his cadre of staff nurses. He might actively recruit nurses and administrative staff from both inside and outside the hospital, or recommend such personnel for recruitment by human resources or management personnel.

Orientation and Training

Nurse supervisors are directly involved in the orientation of new staff, including nurse training. They participate in developing the orientation program for new hires, overseeing their progress and providing additional training as needed. They also are responsible for any site-specific training for new hires on hospital policies and procedures. The nurse supervisor identifies, and provides opportunities for, any needed remedial training. She also provides opportunities for further professional development training as nurses continue their careers. She performs evaluations of the nurses' performance and recommends them for retention or advancement as appropriate.

Administration and Policy Adherence

One of the nurse supervisor's primary administrative tasks is ensuring all the staff under his purview are familiar with, and adhere to, relevant hospital, company and government policies. He might also participate in developing patient care policies, and in adapting general guidelines to fit the specific nature of the facility. It is his responsibility to ensure that all patient care and other records are maintained according to hospital policy. He also might be required to help develop budgets for his department.
