Nurse Manager Inventory Tool


The Nurse Manager Inventory Tool captures the skills and behaviors that are envisioned for the successful nurse manager. This inventory allows the nurse manager to perform a self-evaluation that can be paired with the nurse manager’s supervisor’s assessment to create an individualized professional development plan. The inventory is based on the three domain model initially developed by three national nursing associations:
  • The Science: Managing the business
  • The Art: Leading the people
  • The Leader Within: Creating the leader in yourself
