Nursing

Inside the program: Path to authentic leadership

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, October 18, 2010

Nursing leaders, including nurse managers, charge nurses, services directors, nurse executives, educators, and chief nursing officers, are facing pressures like never before. These pressures include quality improvement, retention of staff, research, staff development, financial constraints, safety, communication with team members, short- and long-term planning, new technology, competition, increased patient acuity, and changes to the healthcare delivery system.

With so many demands on nurse leaders, it is understandable why you might find yourself reacting to the most pressing crisis of the day, rather than taking the time to occasionally pull back and reflect on ways to maximize your skills and proactively help your team navigate this complex environment.
