NURSING LEADERSHIP 2
Abstract
Professional nursing roles are leadership roles as per the very nature of the profession. This is
because, as nursing students, we are taught to be ready to lead. For instance, a professional nurse
is expected to be in a position to lead care teams, be accountable for care outcomes of patients,

for many years, while others take up formal leadership and management roles. For this paper, I
will interview two persons in a nursing leadership/management role to learn several issues
pertaining to their positions and roles. Terry Jones is a Charge Nurse, a role she took up eighteen

Branch is a Head Nurse for approximately four years now. Therese took over this role after
having worked as a Charge Nurse for three years at the facility.
Interview: Terry Jones, MSN, RN
Question 1: What are the qualifications for your management position?

to help nurses develop their leadership potential. I also underwent a program that helps identify
whether a nurse reflects a positive nursing profession image. In this program, the nurse is
provided with information regarding the nursing profession and its image such that as a leader,
