As we head into the end of this semester, we have been learning how to reflect on each of the Leader Within competencies (page 8). This last assignment helps us to look at our overall leadership strengths. The nurses you will hear about forged the way for the next generations of nurses to be the central person in the management of care for patients. Listen to this podcast: “Licensed to Touch: Learnings from Ward 5B” After you listen to the podcast, match the leadership competencies these nurses used to care for the patients of 5B to the competencies we have been analyzing all semester. Reflect on your own skill for each of the nine tenants. Where do you stand?
