Mwolchet Helen Shekara
The purpose of the study was to determine how nurse managers at Vom Christian Hospital in Nigeria's Plateau State felt about giving others authority over them. A self-structured questionnaire was used to gather information from 30 nurses who were chosen using a non-probability sampling approach for the study, which had a non-experimental survey design. The data obtained was analyzed using Mean Score. Findings shows that most Nurse managers have a negative attitude towards delegation such that nurse managers seems not to have time to delegate = 4.10, delegate routine tasks and keep non-routine tasks to themselves = 3.16. Additionally, it demonstrates that nurse managers do not follow the steps of delegation when assigning duties, as demonstrated by the fact that they do not ask delegates about the status of the task they have been given (2.43), and they do not offer the necessary guidance or support when assigning a task (20.5). Finally, duration of service = 4.67 affects the nurse manager's delegating skills. The researcher advises nurse managers to train student nurses and subordinates through duty delegation in order to enable them to provide high-quality care, based on the findings. Additionally, regular attendance at seminars and workshops is recommended to polish acquired abilities.
