Who will lead tomorrow’s nurses? The shortage of nurses portrays a bleak picture for nursing organizations around the country. This critical situation is a result of resignations, retirements and a smaller pool of graduates prepared to be nurse leaders. What strategies can colleges, universities, and health care organizations implement to entice seasoned leaders to remain in this arena and new leaders to emerge? This presentation will address the environment from the leaders perspective and provide insight into the workplace demands placed on nurse leaders coupled with changes in women’s mid-life relationships and the identified effects of these changes. All of these factors play major roles in decisions that nurse leaders make in regards to career paths. Organizations are often administered in such a way as to create work environments that support and encourage individuation. This is contradictory to the very essence of the way women grow and develop. In fact, many times women are constricted in the full development of their relational capacities and are discouraged or punished for self-expression . According to Jack (1991) loss of self leads to depression, loss of self-esteem, loss of ability to be self-determining, and a loss of voice. This potent combination often results in nurses walking away from careers in nurse leadership. The sharing of information about the Insight Program will provide organizations with additional/alternative resources for leadership development to address these issues. Further, the results of the research study used to illustrate this program have significant implications and research questions for academic institutions dealing with nursing curricula, recruitment, retention and progression issues and for employing organizations concerned with quality of care, level of job satisfaction, and productivity.
