Healthcare organizations are searching for mechanisms that will encourage the employ and retention of skilled registered nurses. Traditional management styles have done little to create a nurturing and supportive workplace that encourages staff nurses to work in an inpatient setting. A non-traditional nurse manager as a leader, who exhibits relational and servant-leadership characteristics can facilitate a process of creating a workplace community with registered nurses that will not only provide a supportive environment, but will perform better as well. This paper explores the attributes of a non-traditional nurse manager that will promote the development of a workplace cornrnunity.
