[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence-based Practice Presentation] The aim of this paper is to provide an evidence based process for the discussion of the role of the nurse as a strategic thinker. This paper also seeks to generate ideas for research and development in this area.
Creating nursing organisations fit for the future need nurses as strategic executives and leaders for the long-term survival of the profession.  Nursing needs this type of organisations to achieve its global research priorities articulated by the STTI as: promotion of healthy communities through health promotion, disease prevention and recognition of social, economic and political determinants and the implementation of evidence-based practice
The strategic management process represents an effective way to make a sustainable difference and achieve effective performance within organisations.  Unfortunately nurses? knowledge, understanding and application of this process is patchy for the strategic and policy activities they perform (Crossan 2003). This situation has not changed. This is reflected in the report, Nursing Leadership from Bedside to Boardroom: Opinion Leaders? Perceptions, submitted to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (USA) by Gallup in January 2010.
This paper proposes the Nurse as an IProKEn to achieve these necessary but very challenging global goals. The IProKEn ? International Professional Knowledge Entrepreneur, by definition, is an entrepreneur and a strategic thinker who sees change as normal, and indeed as healthy, to advance the continuing success of their profession.  An IProKEn would be: a stakeholder manager; a strategic planner; a craftsperson; a strategy 'fixer'; a reflective 'leader';  a strategy 'fitter'  and provider of continuous quality service. The STEP Way is a strategic management and leadership process.  It is the S.T.E.P. Management and Leadership Development Process - Stakeholder focus; Technology based; Experiential learning and Personal development.  Two case studies, from the USA and Finland, will be presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the IProKEn Role.
