Implicit Leadership Perceptions of Korean Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2010
Author:Remy, Geraldine, MSN, RN, CRNP
P.I. Institution Name:Eastern University
Title:Nursing Faculty and Director, Korean Nurse Track
21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: This phenomenological pilot study examined implicit leadership perceptions of Korean nurses in order to optimally frame interview questions for a larger subsequent study of Korean nurses in the United States (U.S.) The long-term objective of this pilot study was to build an enhanced repertoire of understanding of implicit leadership perceptions of Korean nurses; to ultimately compare those perceptions to actual leadership responsibilities that are expectations of the nursing role in the U.S.; and to enhance the body of knowledge that will guide nurse educators in global nursing curriculum development. Methods: A phenomenological research approach was implemented for this study after IRB approval and consents were obtained. The convenience sample included Korean nurses enrolled in the Korean Nurse Track-RN to BSN program at Eastern University, St. David's, Pennsylvania. Qualitative data were derived from a writing assignment, "What Leadership Means to Me," which was the first assignment for a NURS 402-Leadership in Nursing course. From this assignment, the researcher derived descriptive data in order to determine implicit leadership perceptions. Results: After the qualitative research principles of description, analysis, and interpretation were implemented, results were reported as follows: Of the eleven reports examined, 122 words, statements, or phrases were organized into five themes which included: higher education is required of those in leadership positions; self-care is important for all leaders; leader attributes; personality traits; and professional skill. Leader attributes was the most populated theme; therefore, was broken down into three subdivisions?self-acquired attributes, other-centered attributes, and moral attributes. Conclusion: Interview questions that might best facilitate optimal data collection regarding implicit leadership perceptions of Korean nurses for a future qualitative research study include: how holistic self-care relates to leadership; how gender relates to leadership perceptions; how the group-protective mindset influences autonomous leadership; and views on autonomous leadership.
