Nurses prepare for success in practice and leadership in the delivery of health care. Undergraduate and graduate curricula emphasize the many roles of the leader; visionary, resource developer, innovator, change agent, mentor and conflict manager are but a few of the expectations we have for nurse leaders. Sigma Theta Tau International acts as a nurturing incubator for nursing leaders around the world. Yet, in the scarce resources and managed competition environment of the past decade, nurse leaders in both practice and education have encountered a troubling phenomenon. Failure. The pain is internal; it is a private malady not easily shared and discussed among colleagues. Mergers and acquisitions among US health care systems leave some nursing leaders esteemed but jobless. Shortages of resources for health care systems are global issues. In some situations, the nurse leader must determine whether the circumstances of continued employment are compatible with personal and professional ethics and value systems. Tenure may be denied. Low enrollments have forced the closure of nursing programs despite heritage, reputation and service. Administrators and faculty members have to begin anew. Chapters thrive, or not, based on the success and commitment of their leaders. Broken rungs in career ladders are not always visible. Gaps in resumes can be disguised. "Consulting" is sometimes a code word for "out of work." Sabbaticals may be terminal. One's professional network is significant, but even then one must careful about what is revealed. Everyone loves a winner; no one has time for a loser. Or so it seems. The purpose of this session is to confront the facts and feelings associated with failure, perceived or real. Let's share what we know about career mishaps. Let's talk about contingency plans and options. There may be a broken rung in your career ladder.
