BY DEFINITION A LEADER IS “a person who has commanding authority or influence”, but there’s much more to being a leader than that, especially in the world of nursing.
Are you a leader? Nurses have assigned roles and specific titles that involve skill management. To be a leader in the field of nursing goes beyond assigned authority. Nurse leaders are confident, committed, inspiring and honest every shift, day and night (just to name a few of the 10 qualities that make a great leader according to More Than Accountants). Leading nurses challenge the status quo and continue to challenge themselves whether they’ve been a nurse for a month or 10 years.
