Nurse Leadership Skills Made, Not Granted



It takes more than excellent clinical skills to rise to the role of nurse leader. Two new programs in Tennessee and New York aim to train the next generation of nurses who are ready to push themselves forward.

It is very exciting that we are having these conversations! Leadership is a practiced art and requires a skill set that is needed at the bedside to the board room. I remain concerned that the specific tactical requirements of the middle manager nurse need to be addressed in a fundamental way to build skill, competence and confidence. These tactical programs need to be provided to an interdisciplinary class - student body. Increased understanding of collaboration, mutual respect and mutual mission of a safe and quality care within an accountable health care organization, needs to be experienced and emphasized in the learning environment!
