Results: The findings were themed based on strategies to develop nursing leadership knowledge and skills: preceptorship and mentorship programs, educational supports and opportunities for professional growth. Conclusion: Recommendations for developing educational strategies for aspiring nurse leaders to attain transformational leadership practices will be discussed. The integration of nursing leadership knowledge and skills into nursing education will be shared and the implications for theory, research, practice and policy.
