Title:
Leadership is a Component of Skill Competency for Nurses
Abstract:
Leadership is a Component of Skill Competency for Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Grossman, Sheila Carey, APRN, FNP, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Fairfield University
Title:Professor & Nurse Practitioner
Purpose - Nurses must gain self-confidence, a goal that can be achieved by becoming competent not only with clinical skills but also with leadership skills such as negotiation, creative thinking, communication, and collaboration. In order to achieve this confidence, nurses need to be mentored by experienced staff nurses who can provide clinical knowledge as well as psychosocial support. Nurses must begin to think differently about care delivery. Rationale for Mentoring - The focus of this session is to describe how leaders are not born, but made and mostly self-made. Staff nurses need to believe that leadership is a talent that each of us has and that can be learned, developed, and nurtured. By engaging in supervised leadership activities such as negotiating conflicts, particpating in collaborative decision-making processes, assisting in health policy development, and advocating for the publc, nurses have many opportunities to lead. Mentorship Development - Strategies for setting up mentorships in hospital units, selection of mentors, and use of outcome evaluation methods which track nurse leadership development are presented. These mentorships will assist RNs to gain insight into their ability to impact change, think creatively, empower themselves and others, and acquire various skills to prepare them for a successful career and also to strengthen the nursing profession.
