Because the charge nurse observes and weighs patient care delivery and outcomes as provided by coworkers, the charge nurse may be asked to contribute observations to individual employee evaluations, suggest competency evaluations, or to advise and educate fellow staff. These functions of the charge nurse should not, however, be constructed as supervisory in the sense of exercising control regarding employment decisions. The charge nurse is accountable for overall operation of an assigned unit during a specific time period, but is not solely or personally responsible for the selection or discharge of employees of the health care facility.
