There are a lot of, they take care of the personnel, the health care going on there and basically all the care that revolves around that site goes through them.They're the ones that need to know what's going on, what appointments are scheduled, what labs are needed to be done, what documentations needs to be done. They are the go-to person on that, on that clinical site. Nursing supervisor usually takes care of more than one site as a nurse manager is in charge of just that site. You'll find them in the hospitals, in nursing homes taking care of all sort of things, everywhere they need to be. Usually they're consider like an administrator, if, if nothing else.
