The Prenton Park club took 16 points from a possible 18, but their late run came too late for a play-off place.
"Brian has taken Birkenhead by storm. He's stabilised the club's fortunes," said Nationwide's Chris Hull.
"Had their run come a little earlier, I am sure Tranmere might have sneaked into the play-offs."
