Leadership (Nursing)

Leadership (Nursing)

by Christy Hennessey (Davidson), Jacquelyn McMillian-Bohler, Amber Vanderburg

Leadership is a crucial skill for all nurses. Delegating appropriate tasks to nursing assistants, solving problems in your workplace, and coordinating care between multiple medical specialties are all examples of when nurses have to employ leadership skills.

Patients depend on knowledgeable nurses with solid leadership attributes. High-quality patient care requires that nurses take a proactive approach to ensuring the medical team operates as a unit, and it takes a leader to advocate for patients, coworkers, and oneself.

In this course, you’ll learn how to delegate tasks and navigate conflict. You’ll also learn more about the interdisciplinary health team, management principles, and cost-effective strategies for patient care.
