Abstract

The complexities of healthcare demand new leadership approaches to achieve organizational goals while developing and sustaining healthy work environments. The nurse manager is the defining role, crucial to achievement of workplace outcomes. Preparing nurses for this dynamic, complex role is often dependent on didactic education or on-the-job training that falls short of true leadership development. The authors describe an innovative approach to the development of successful nursing leaders across an integrated healthcare system.
