Define Leadership
Discuss how leadership impacts nursing practice
Evidence based research
Qualities of a leader
Leadership's impact on nursing environment
Is the ability to define a vision and guide individuals and groups toward that vision, while maintaining group promoting teamwork, commitment, and effectiveness (Knodel, 2010).

Nursing research identifies leadership as a key element of the role, with policyholders adopting
transformational leadership approaches (McIntosh & Tolson, 2009).
Impact on Nursing Practice
Leadership is important to nursing because it positively impacts a patient's well being and promotes a healthy recovery. Nurse leaders ensure that each member of the health care team provides the highest level of care through conflict management, motivation, and being a positive role model (Williams, 2011).
The content taught in undergraduate nursing degree programs can contribute to nursing leadership as the development of a professional nurse.

Leadership in nurses can be developed through educational activities, modeling and practice.
Evidence Based Research
Leaders support and educate nurses on evidenced base practice, (EBP), to prevent and overcome resistance from nurses. When nurse leaders show a positive attitude and take an active role implementing EBP, this will lead to meeting the Institute of Medicine's goal of having 90% of all patient care decisions to be evidenced based by 2020 (Melnyk, 2012).
Conflict management
A nurse leader can identify conflicts early and take the necessary steps to resolve the issue before it affects patient care, and works to improve relationships among members of the healthcare team (Williams, 2011).
Leaders need to help nurses on the unit stay focused on their commitment to their patient's healthy recovery. A leader will work to demonstrate confidence in themselves, their employees, and empower & motivate nurses to take the initiative to strive to perform at their best (Williams, 2011).
Positive role model
Leaders act as a positive role model by honoring the ethical nursing principles, putting patients first, and treating members of the healthcare team with respect. A leader will inspire fellow nurses to do the same, and will lead by example (Williams, 2011).

Leadership roles in nursing are shown to hold retention among the profession. New graduates of nursing embrace those leaders who are willing to coach and them in their future career path (Cottingham, Dibartolo, Battistoni, 2011).
Qualities of a Leader
Finds creative ways to communicate a vision

Serves as a role model for exceptional nursing practice

Encourages others to find innovative ways to improve nursing care (Melynk, 2012).

These qualities help create a "magnetic" culture!

Relationship Skills
Education and leadership can be connected by having training methods with an emphasis on relationship skills.

Relationship qualities such as effective communication and being approachable is important in a leadership role.

Emotional intelligence, having the ability to integrate emotions and reason and mange them, is also a trait that can be developed through training.
(Curtis, Vries & Sheerin, 2011)
Current and Future
Current evidence suggests that leadership is taught within nursing curriculum, as a focus on the transition of student to nurse.

Future education should teach leadership within the student curriculum so students can view their clinical practice as part of leadership.
(Curtis, Vries & Sheerin, 2011)
Leaders innovate, inspire, develop, and originate (Curtis, 2011).
Leadership effect on Environment
A healthy work environment positively impacts a nurses job satisfaction, reduces burnout, improves patient outcomes, and improves organizational performance; Quality leadership is necessary to achieve a healthy work environment

Accessible nursing leaders play a key role in helping to give nurses a voice in the improvement of patient care, and to contribute to a positive organizational culture (Rose & Pross, 2010).

Evidenced based leadership styles

Research supports that in order to have the desired organizational culture, leaders need to have a transformational leadership style, in which the leaders can improve motivation, boost employee moral and increase overall working performance.

The Magnet performance environment which is considered a gold standard for hospitals includes transformational leadership within it's components.

Evidence supports that a Magnet hospital and it's employees have a healthy work environment, and provide quality patient centered care (Rose & Pross, 2010).
