Non-nurse managers

I read the article “Targeted for success” (Nurse.com/Article/Targeted-for-Success) and noted the statement about placing nurses and even non-nurses in charge of departments outside of their clinical areas. I strongly disagree. I worked in an ED and the only qualification the leader had was a master’s degree in psych. Needless to say it did not go well. Because she had no clinical knowledge of the department she was never able to gain the respect of the staff or manage effectively.
