About This Issue (47.2): Nursing Science for Leadership in the New Decade
This issue is focused on nursing science for leadership. Our Guest Editors, Nora Warshawsky and Pat Yoder-Wise have put together an issue with manuscripts derived from the 2021 Annual Conference of the Association for Leadership Science in Nursing (ALSN).
The nurse scientist role is critical for expanding evidence-based decisions and nursing research. Typically, nurse scientists have a PhD degree but not always! There are many masters prepared nurse scientists and, although the DNP is not a research doctorate, some DNPs do conduct research. The partnership of a PhD and a DNP can be a wonderful dyad when conducting research as their skill sets differ; some hospitals around the country are implementing this model in their research departments.
To hear more about the issue, visit our Podcast page to listen to the Guest Editors describe what to expect. Don't forget our “Continuing the Conversation" column which provides faculty and educators talking points and critical thinking exercises for their use.
