Abstract:
Creating Tomorrow's Leaders by Developing Leadership Competencies Today
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Director, School of Nursing
This Helene Fuld Health Trust sponsored project was designed to increase leadership competencies in nursing students by first enhancing leadership competencies in their nursing instructors–both academic faculty and nurses from clinical sites who work closely with students. Background: In today’s health care arena, nurses at every level of the industry need to be equipped with the knowledge, strategies and strength to lead and manage effectively. The foundation for these kinds of leadership skills/competencies must be laid in the classroom, both the on-campus and clinical classrooms. In addition to didactic presentations, students must see these skills role modeled by faculty and by nurses in the industry who work with students in clinical settings. If the students of today are to internalize these leadership competencies and become the leaders of tomorrow, they must see them in action in those they view as nursing experts. Project: The project focused on development of five leadership competencies predictive of leadership behaviors. Participants included faculty from three BSN programs and nurses from six clinical agencies. Project activities included: an initial overnight retreat followed by a series of five workshops held at approximately four week intervals: retreat and workshops dealt with various topics related to leadership; an overnight trip to the state capitol to discuss health issues/issue development and meet with state leaders influential in health care; two participant projects: one an individual project involving a change in some aspect related to their workplace, including planning, implementing and evaluating the results of the project, and presenting the project/results to their peer participants at the final meeting of the group; and a group project involving development of a plan for incorporating leadership competencies learned through participation in this program, into their curricula/role modeling with nursing students.
