The nurse's lived experience of becoming an interprofessional leader.

J Contin Educ Nurs 2014 Nov 23;45(11):487-93; quiz 494-5. Epub 2014 Oct 23.

In the current complex health care environment, nurses in all practice settings are called on to be leaders in advocating for a healthier future. Health care reform, the rise of the evidence-based practice movement, and the proliferation of new educational options are opening opportunities as never before for nurses to expand their leadership capacity to an interprofessional level. This interpretive phenomenological study conducted with eight nurse participants describes their experience of becoming an interprofessional leader. A team of three nurse researchers interpreted the texts individually and collectively. Interview texts were analyzed hermeneutically to uncover the common shared experience of moving toward common ground with interprofessional leadership as a process, one that not only took time, but also called for self-reflection, deliberate actions, and a new mind-set. This study develops the evidence base for leadership preparation at a time when there is a strong need for interprofessional leaders and educators in health care.

Becoming a nursing faculty leader.

Nurs Educ Perspect 2011 Jul-Aug;32(4):222-8

Minessota State University, Mankato School of Nursing, USA.

Academic leaders are one component of a well-prepared faculty that is required to achieve and sustain excellent educational programs. But what is it like to become an academic leader? How does one become a leader? These questions were addressed in an interpretive study in which nurse faculty leaders were interviewed about the experience of becoming a leader. Interview texts were analyzed hermeneutically by a research team to uncover three themes (common, shared experiences): Being Thrust into Leadership, Taking Risks, and Facing Challenges, which are explicated in this article. This study develops the evidence base for leadership preparation at a time when there is a strong need for nursing education leaders in academia.

Department of Nursing, Ohlone College, Newark, California, USA.

This article presents how nursing worldviews, relationship, and holism have evolved differently according to the predominant mode of perception used to create them. Intensive and extensive modes of perception are both primarily and fundamentally different; neither mode of perception can be subsumed by the other. Nurses are susceptible to limiting their perception by practicing simple holism. An evolution to complex holism in both intensive and extensive modes of perception is advocated for effective leadership in shaping the future of health care and nursing practice.
