As a Nurse Administrator, you will concentrate primarily on policy and organizational operations issues, such as nursing shortages, and spend your time meeting with other key healthcare professionals, preparing reports, and developing programs and policies to ensure safety and high-quality nursing care.

Nurse administrators hold a variety of executive-level positions, such as director of nursing services, clinical coordinator and chief nurse executive. They often oversee several departments and report directly to senior leadership.
