I want to become a nurse manager in the future. Are there any books or resources I can read to help me learn?

Anyone with BSN can be one, but very fee want it. For once you will be dealing with patient/visitor complaints and you will be on salary therefore typically making less than floor nurse ( no shift diff. no OT)

Anyone can be nurse manager but very few want this job because it is salary withsut differentials and OT. If you are BSN you can easily get this job, but don’t be surprised if you end up having smaller check than floor nurse. Another thing is, you will be dealing with family/patient complains.
