Role of the Nurse Leader
From your practicum experiences, identify leadership strategies used by the nurse executive to engage staff in the decision-making process. Discuss how the nurse executive provides an environment
conducive to opinion sharing.
Leadership involves influencing, inspiring, and engaging others to participate. Management is a more formal process than leadership and is tied to a person’s position in an organization. For your
practicum this week, focus on the leadership skills and management strategies that you observe in the healthcare organization. Look at the organizational structure and the ability of the nurse
executive to influence change based on the structure.
Demonstrate the leadership skills of a nurse executive in an organizational setting. (PO 2, 10)
