Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: The Canadian Nurses Association has identified that nursing requires strong leaders who inspire others and promotes professional nursing practice. (2002). The Registered Nurses of Ontario Best Practice Guideline on Developing and Sustaining Leadership (2006) stresses the importance of educational programs providing formal and informal experiences which provide opportunities to develop leadership skills. As part of a project for the Dorothy Wylie Leadership Nursing Institute (DWLNI), two faculty were requested to look at enhancing the nursing students' core leadership competencies and skills. The goal of the project was to integrate the DWLNI framework as well as to include the Kouzes & Posner's Practices of Exemplary Leadership into the Year 4 Leadership Nursing course offered in the Humber/University of New Brunswick (UNB) Baccalaureate of Nursing Degree Program. In addition to introducing the DWLNI framework and K & P's Exemplary Practices of Leadership, the following concepts will be integrated: Emotional Intelligence; Interprofessional Practice with collaboration of students from other Health Sciences programs --Paramedic, Occupational/Physiotherapist Assistant, and practical nursing students working together on case studies related to promoting quality patient care; Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care; and Personal Accountability. We are seeking to enhance leadership skills through development of effective interpersonal relationships.
