Leadership DIMENSION

Although it is common to promote direct care nurses to management positions in nursing, it is important to have a well-defined process. Excelling in clinical skills at the bedside does not always translate into management and leadership abilities. Having a way to internally identify and develop frontline leaders for future management positions is important in succession planning, creating organizational culture, decreasing costs, and increasing employee engagement.
