The healthcare industry demands nurses function as leaders of interprofessional teams. The scope of practice of nursing has broadened and will continue to expand to include working within complex health systems and managing large groups of diverse people. Leaders in healthcare are needed to carry the multiple health initiatives mandated by changes in federal healthcare and private insurance carriers. Nurses are key stakeholders and players in leading change in healthcare. The Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (2011,) issued a call to action for nurses to lead change in healthcare. In order to be a leader, self-confidence and knowledge of successful leadership qualities are needed. Nurses face many possibilities in leading effective change to promote optimal outcomes. It is important that nurses step up to this transformation call. There are 3.1 million nurses who have the potential to develop leading change. This session will define leadership and discuss how to engage others, encourage individual best performance, and acknowledge accomplishments toward the identified goals.
