Title:
Preparing New Leaders
Abstract:
Preparing New Leaders
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Mangum, Carl, RN, MSN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Mississippi Medical Center
Title:Instructor of Nursing
The new nurse of today is facing many new challenges from technology, cultural awareness, and the shortage of nurses. Nurses will need good leaders to face these challenges. These good leaders will not only be needed in large organizations or associations, they will be needed on the floor at the bedside. In an effort to assist generic baccalaureate nursing students in developing leadership skills faculty has developed classwork related to self-awareness, self-regulation, and social skills. These areas were identified as critical skills for new nurses by nursing faculty and medical center nursing administration. Daniel Goleman’s book, Working with Emotional Intelligence, was selected as the framework for developing the educational materials and activities. Students are taken through self-assessment exercises and the benefits of self-confidence. Activities dealing with self-regulation related to self-control, trustworthiness, and adaptability are also conducted. Even some work with candy bars has been purposeful in teaching about self-regulation. Under the theme of social skills: communication, leadership, collaboration and cooperation are some of the areas addressed. This classwork is intended to lay a foundation for nursing students to become leaders. Many of the new students do not have the life experiences to face some of the situations they will face as nurses. By examining themselves, their beliefs, and gaining some insight on self-regulation students are beginning the transition to being a nurse and a leader.
