In this era of complex and changing health care, it is critical that nurses possess skill and ability in leading others. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials of Baccalaureate Education document identifies the role of professional nurses to be providers and designers of care, in addition to being members of a profession. Central to the development of each role is education on leadership and opportunities for growth in leadership abilities. Facilitating leadership skill development requires encouragement, coaching and support of new leaders as they learn their strengths and areas for improvement. Coursework and clinical experiences should provide students with necessary knowledge and skill so that they might increase their leadership capacity in each professional role. As part of a curriculum revision, two one-hour credit seminar courses were developed using these principles as a guiding framework. Based on the AACN essential competencies, each seminar included specific, targeted teaching strategies to encourage leadership behavior within the accompanying clinical courses. These strategies, labeled from most to least effective in engaging students in active learning and skill development, areas of success and pitfalls to avoid, difficulties in measuring level of success and other lessons learned during implementation of the two seminar courses will be summarized. Recommendations for implementing similar courses and teaching strategies within a baccalaureate nursing program will also be discussed.
