How many times have we heard, “the challenges of today are the opportunities for moving the nursing profession and the healthcare system forward?” When environments are dynamic and challenges multiply exponentially, predicting the leadership competencies required can be daunting. In 2008, Carol Huston's “Preparing nurse leaders for 2020” highlighted 8 essential competencies required in the future nurse leader’s repertoire. These competencies encompass: global perspectives of nursing and healthcare issues, advanced technology skills, expert decision making skills based in evidence, organizational culture of quality and safety, understanding the political processes, collaborative team building, balancing authenticity and performance expectations, and adapting to a system of rapid change and chaos. As healthcare transforms, so too must nursing leaders' response to the complex environment. Throughout history, nursing has had remarkable leaders that have been shaped by and helped shape the healthcare system. Join us as we continue to learn from our experiences and explore our future in transforming healthcare.
