Lessons from a Visionary Leader: Inspirational Thoughts by Richard Hader, PhD, NE-BC, RN, CHE, CPHQ, FAAN

  When Richard Hader first entered the offices of Lippincott Williams & Wilkins to interview for the Editor-in-Chief position of Nursing Management journal, we knew right away we were gifted with a shining star in healthcare leadership.

Courage was a prominent theme in Rich's editorials--choosing courage over complacency, whether it's the courage to be creative, take risks, or sometimes even to say "no." It's our hope that these words offer you newfound courage and inspiration to reach even greater levels of leadership within your healthcare organizations.

A compilation of the best-loved excerpts from nearly a decade of monthly editorials that Richard wrote for Nursing Management as Editor-in-Chief, Lessons from a Visionary Leader is a must-have for all nurses. Treat yourself or a colleague to this inspirational book today!

Available in print copy or eBook on Nursing Center, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.

20 Questions: Evidence-based practice or sacred cow?

Despite dramatic advances in nursing and medical research, many nurses continue to promote outdated nursing practices that have been proven ineffective, unnecessary, and, in some cases, downright dangerous. Based on tradition rather than science, these "sacred cows" are often revered by nurses and hard to dislodge from practice. 

 Can you distinguish sacred cows from evidence-based interventions? Help us gather information about current nursing practice nationwide by responding to our confidential and anonymous survey. We’ll publish the results in an upcoming issue of Nursing2014 and provide references and rationales for each correct answer.

Deadline for responses is May 31, 2014.
