With the goal of advancing quality health care, this innovative text moves beyond the often insular world of nurse leadership values to offer the perspectives of leaders in other health care disciplines that interface with nurses.

Each chapter is written by an accomplished health care leader outside the nursing profession, and follows a consistent format that includes definitions of leadership, best and worst professional experience with nurse leaders (in terms of strategic vision, risk-taking, creativity, interpersonal and communication effectiveness, inspiring change and self-knowledge), lessons learned, and implications for leaders within and outside nursing. Key Features: Offers unique views of nursing leadership from healthcare professionals in other arenas Discusses strengths and weaknesses of nurse leaders and leadership values for inter-professional collaboration Reflects the Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse fellowship values for excellence Promotes inter-professional strategies to advance health care reform on a national level Designed for use in graduate nursing leadership courses including DNP
