This study aims to assess the attitudes of Nurse Managers and their readiness to delegate effectively.
A study sample: Quota of nurse managers (nursing supervisors and head nurses) who work at King Saud Medical City or King Khalid University Hospitals. The total study sample was (397) from both hospitals, (238 from King Saud Medical City, and (159) King Khalid University Hospitalet met the inclusion criteria. They had to be in their current units/positions not less than six months and have been involved in unit/ward activities.
The study's questionnaire. Data were collected from two main scales and demographic data sheets.
Study results: Most participants were uncertain about their attitude to delegation. They were prepared to do effective delegation to a certain extent, but they needed to improve their ability to delegate effectively. Study results revealed that nurses managers' attitudes to delegation and preparedness for delegating were not based on self-confidence or trust. This was especially true for younger nurses and those who have less experience.
Recommendations for Nurse Managers: Nurse managers must maximize nurses' potential for personal and professional development by creating an environment that encourages reflective practice and shared accountability. They also need to demonstrate confidence in their colleagues by delegating effectively.
