Purpose of this Course

The purpose of this course is to discuss the differences between nursing leadership and management. This course will help nurses see the values and importance of leadership and management in their area of nursing and their organizations.

  2. Identify different leadership styles

  4. Understand the importance of emotional intelligence

The nature of the professional nurse is built on leadership. Throughout healthcare, regardless of a nurse’s role or practice setting, nurses are looked to as leaders (Williamson, 2017). In the healthcare team, nurses lead ancillary groups, oversee care teams, and are accountable for patient care outcomes (Williamson, 2017). What is management? What makes it differ from leadership? Management can exists without the presence of leadership, but a manager that possesses both leadership and management skills is a more effective leader. Though leadership and management seem interchangeable, anyone can be a manager or a leader, but not everyone can be effective without leadership skills and qualities. This course will discuss the roles and attributes that are necessary for effective nursing leaders.
