5 Ways to Become the Head Nurse


2. Take Extra Responsibilities Whenever Possible

The head nurse is someone who has to put in his or her time beforehand. If extra shifts are available and the current head nurse is in a pinch, don’t hesitate to offer your services if you’re free. Get a wide variety of experience by working in different departments. Apply for higher positions, like a charge nurse. Be enthusiastic while working, whether it’s training new nurses or working with the most difficult patients. One thing to keep in mind is that a head nurse should always lead by example.

    Hi Steve Berman
    Get a degree, work as a registered nurse, apply for an intermediate position such as charge nurse and then go for the head job. Experience, skill and networking can help you land a head nurse job.

    Everyone starts a career dreaming of making it big one day and nurses are no different. While many of them prefer to start as staff nurses to learn the nitty gritty of bedside patient care, a lot of them would ultimately want to move to more senior roles.

    One of the surest ways of advancing in your nursing career is going to graduate school. For RNs keen on taking leadership roles, Master's of Nursing Administration ( http://www.stevenshenager.edu/healthcare/masters/nursing-administration ) is a degree worth considering, whereas those who want to become advance practice nurses (APNs) should probably enroll for an MSN degree. What this means is that it’s important to choose a graduate nursing degree depending on your goal.

    As in many jobs, head nurses work up through the ranks--and excel each step of the way. They get a degree, work as a registered nurse, apply for an intermediate position such as charge nurse and then go for the head job. Experience, skill and networking can help you land a head nurse job, and additional education in health care administration also boosts your chances.

    Having an advanced degree can surely help you get the position you want. One of my friends is now a head nurse after enduring many problems in her life. She even went to an alcohol rehabilitation program in the past, but after that, she changed her life to 180 degrees. If there were more people like her who are so determined to change for the better.
