The importance of developing frontline nurse leaders is vital for advancing the profession and patient care delivery systems in healthcare organizations. This can be a formidable challenge when it comes to workforce planning that is dependent on nurses from diverse cultures to compensate for shortage of nurses worldwide, more so in Saudi Arabia. Most hospitals in the Kingdom recruit expatriate nurses from different countries across the globe that have limited knowledge about Saudi culture and can find it daunting while adapting to transcultural differences and organizational cultures. This often leads to a breakdown in professional relationships that can inevitably unsettle the working environment and compromise quality patient care. Although healthcare systems vary from country to country, nursing is universal and requires a cohesive approach that unites nurses to have one voice on challenges that affect their practice and patient care. It is therefore, incumbent upon healthcare organizations to establish a robust recruitment and retention plan that helps to promote staff satisfaction through integration of nurses from different racial and cultural backgrounds. Research findings suggest that without the attention to diversity, healthcare practices of clients and quality of health care will diminish. Having realized the depth of this constantly emerging challenge, we adopted a new management style that would provide support to empower frontline nurses and ultimately build capacity to revolutionize nursing at SFHP (Security Forces Hospital). This presentation will provide an overview of how transformational leadership can have a direct impact on developing frontline nurse leaders to adapt to an increasingly culturally diverse working environment.
