Developing your skills as a Nurse Director

Preparing for your greatest challenge

Eileen Sills CBE, Chief Nurse & Director of Patient Experience

Eileen has been a Nurse Director since 1999 in 3 very different organisations, and has been in her current role for 10 years. Eileen's presentation draws upon her personal and professional experiences, where she aims to get the audience to reflect on why you want to be a Director of Nursing, what skills are required and tips for success. The title of the presentation sets the scene well with a recognition that these roles are now one of the most challenging within the NHS and care and consideration needs to be given when considering this as a career move. No longer can you afford just to be a sound professional you now have to be able to understand the business in its broadest sense, making and contributing to very significant strategic decisions whilst also keeping your feet firmly on the ground, with a line of sight from the Board to the ward. This requires, tenacity, integrity, energy and resilience in abundance. Get it right and its the best job in the world.
