The authors discuss how leadership and management constructs were integrated throughout the students' upper-division, 2-year nursing curriculum via 3 leadership/management courses. The purpose of this innovative leadership education model is to facilitate the acquisition of both leadership and management behaviors and provide opportunity for students to practice these skills in clinical settings. The authors describe the underpinnings of this model, exemplars of leadership and management principles used in this curriculum, and the barriers to implementing this curriculum. © 2009 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
