Project #32963 - Leadership and the Graduate Nursing Role

PROJECT 1- Leadership and the Graduate Nursing Role

The graduate nurse evidences leadership as seen in the four domains: the profession of nursing, clinical practice arena, health policy arena, and systems level.  In order to complete this assignment, a short quiz about your leadership style may be useful.

Go to http://psychology.about.com/library/quiz/bl-leadershipquiz.htm and take the 18 question quiz – this takes about 5 minutes.  Then complete the following tasks:

  • Report the findings from the quiz – what kind of leader were you?  How does this fit into your beliefs about your leadership style?
  • Discuss the attributes of leadership that may be needed for graduate level nurses.
  • Discuss the personal leadership attributes you feel you have that will help you in your graduate nursing role. Also discuss those attributes that you feel you may need to develop in your graduate nursing role.
  • Finish with a quote from a library article related to leadership in nursing or in an advanced role in nursing.  Look in some of the known leadership journals like The Journal of Nursing Scholarship or Nursing Leadership Forum [found in the ProQuest search engine] or the American Journal of Nursing, Journal of Nursing Administration, Nursing Administration Quarterly, Nursing Management or Health Care Management Review [found in the OVID search engine] or any article pertaining to leadership that you feel is appropriate to your paper.

Submit your answers in a two- to three-page Microsoft Word document.

Leadership Quiz - Your Results
 
   
 
 

Your results indicate that your leadership style is both: Participative and Delegative

Participative Leadership

Participative leaders accept input from one or more group members when making decisions and solving problems, but the leader retains the final say when choices are made. Group members tend to be encouraged and motivated by this style of leadership. This style of leadership often leads to more effective and accurate decisions, since no leader can be an expert in all areas. Input from group members with specialized knowledge and expertise creates a more complete basis for decision-making.

Delegative Leadership

Delegative leaders allow group members to make decisions. This style is best used in situations where the leader needs to rely on qualified employees. The leader cannot be an expert in all situations, which is why it is important to delegate certain tasks out to knowledgeable and trustworthy employees.

 

 

Remember, good leaders utilize all three styles depending upon the situation. For example:

    • Use an authoritarian style if a group member lacks knowledge about a certain procedure.

    • Use a participative style with group members who understand the objectives and their role in the task.

  • Use a delegative style if the group member knows more than you do about the task.

Great leaders need to adapt and change based upon the objectives, needs of group members, and situational factors. You can find more information in this article on leadership styles.
