Abstract:

Poster presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013, Saturday, November 16, 2013

Novice nurse educators face challenges which can impact their development as leaders. Nurse educators are positioned to make a difference and expand thier influence in the classroom, instituion, communtiy and nation. However, because novice nurse educators are often overwhelmed with learning the role in  academic institutions, they often feel unprepared, inexperienced and ill-equipped to consider themselves leaders and to take on leadership roles. The NFLA provides novice nurse educators with the guidance and mentoring  necessary to develop skills and flourish as leaders in their profession. NFLA scholars are teamed up with world renown and accomplished educators who serve as mentors and advisors through a relationship of three.  This project will highlight the experience of a nurse educator’s leadership development journey through the NFLA based on three domains: advancing nursing education through a leadership project, personal and professional development as a nursing faculty leader and expanding the scope of influence. This project incorporated a team of five nursing faculty who committed to the advancement of nursing education through offering an Undergraduate Critical Care Nursing Course.  Selection of the Critical Care Course as a focal point for the team leadership project was based on feedback from students, faculty and community stakeholders regarding the concern of the high nursing turnover among new graduates and the notion that new nursing graduates are not adequately prepared to care for patients with acute, complex conditions. After gaining support from key stakeholders for the pilot project, an individual leadership development plan was created, which identified strategic goals for personal and professional growth based upon Kouze and Pousner’s theoretical underpinnings for exemplary leadership. Strategies were enacted to keep key stakeholders and team members engaged and inspired along the way. The outcomes of the project included improved leadership skills and roles, expansion of scope of influence and significant lessons learned.
