The role of the charge nurse is crucial to the successful operation of nursing units on a shift-by-shift and day-by-day basis. In the military, nurses are expected to function as charge nurses relatively early in their careers and require preparation. The purpose of this project was to develop a charge nurse workshop based on a qualitative study of charge nurse competencies as well as barriers and facilitators of the role (Connelly & Yoder, 1999). A 2-day course was developed using the findings of the study, literature review, and committee work that included charge and head nurses members. Based on the research analysis, scenarios and exercises planned an important role in the course. To evaluate the effectiveness of the course, supervisors completed an assessment of participants on the 54 competencies identified in the earlier study. In addition, we used critical incident methodology to determine what changes the participants might make in their practice, as well as participant satisfaction evaluations. The program was well received by participants who outlined specific ways they would have changed their leadership actions in the critical incident analysis based on what they learned in the course. Supervisor's evaluations demonstrated an improvement in the participant's competencies post-intervention.
