Transformational Nursing Leaders
CO 7: Apply leadership concepts in the development and initiation of effective plans for the microsystems and system-wide practice improvements that will improve the quality of healthcare delivery. (PO 2 and 3) The Assignment
Review Appendix A, Sections I–V in Finkelman (2016). Select one of the sections and share how your chief nurse executive demonstrates expertise in these competencies. Your comments should be about the “highest nursing leader” in your organization. Typically this is the leader who represents nurses and nursing to the governing board. In your own words, explain the differences between a transactional nursing leader and a transformational nursing leader. What one is more like your Nurse Executive? Describe how the Nurse Executive “leads the charge” for transformational leadership in an organization where you work or have done prelicensure clinical experiences. Take us on a journey where you complete a story about your nurse executive or leader and the change that either has occurred or is necessary.
