Strong leaders in nursing are vital to help navigate the constant evolution of health care. Nurse leaders do more than balance costs, monitor productivity, and maintain patient and staff satisfaction. They serve as role models and influence health care organizations at all levels. A strong nurse leader motivates their colleagues, setting the tone for a safe, civil workplace with a culture of high morale and job retention.
Essential to the success of today's nurse leaders and aspiring nurse leaders is the comprehensive understanding of the key characteristics, skills and attributes that embody an effective nurse leader and how the nurse leader leverages the elements that contribute to a healthy nurse work environment, even in times of unexpected crisis.
Growing future nurse leaders embodies the mission and vision of ONL NJ, which requires educating and building confidence in emerging leaders. The future nurse leader's ultimate responsibility will be to continue the very important work being done today to improve the nursing practice environment, and most importantly, patient outcomes
