Nursing leaders are looking for nurses who stand out from the crowd. In fact, I would bet that most nurses at the executive level would like ALL of their staff to speak, act and behave like a nursing leader.
So as nurses, many of us desire to excel in this way. Not only to meet the needs of our organization and support our nursing teams, but for our own sense of self-growth and professional development. I know I am always looking for ways to grow as a nurse leader.
Whether it be via attending a workshop that is going to teach me a new skill or read a nursing journal that describes research in nursing administration- we often desire to step up our game. So what can we do to continue to improve as nursing leaders? How can we show up in our nursing careers in a professional way?
Here’s the first of a three part video series on nursing leadership. We’ll use my fun and easy CNO acronym as we go through the content. Today’s video features the ‘C’ in nursing leadership skills. Enjoy (and after watching, let me know your thoughts).
What about this step can you start working on today? What do you already do to build these components of nursing leadership in your nursing career? Let’s hear from you; leave a comment or question below. Thanks for watching!
