Just What's Needed!  May 20, 2011
by


I was required to read this textbook for a class on Nursing Leadership. The textbook's three sections address the major views of leadership that have occupied center stage in recent decades: leadership as personal; leadership as achieving organizational goals; and leadership as transformational. Angela Barron McBride brings a practicality and insightfulness to the subject that will empower you when considering your leadership development. It is an excellent textbook hitting on many relevant topics in nursing leadership. Highly recommended.






The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Angela Barron McBride brings a practicality and insightfulness to the subject that will empower you when considering your leadership development, no matter your specialty or career stage.

"Dr. McBride's concepts of leadership development honed from many years of personal experience and superb observation apply to any person seeking or in a position of leadership."-Claire Fagin PhD, RN, FAAN,Leadership Professor Emerita, Dean Emerita at the University of Pennsylvania

"This book will be helpful to any nurse or nursing student thinking about their career and their potential to influence health care. Importantly, readers come away with practical tips to inform their own development as a leader and to facilitate such development in others."-Patricia G. Archbold RN, DNSc, FAAN,American Academy of Nursing

"Whether you are an accomplished leader or somewhere along the path this book is a "must read." Angela McBride has surely outdone herself in developing this inspirational piece .As someone new to leadership, the book offers a path that is not proscriptive, but rather guiding one toward self-awareness, understanding of others, and helpful strategies. For the mid-career leader, the book offers some comfort and reinforcement of direction. For someone who is seasoned, the insights remind one of the successes of the past and what is possible for the future."-Harriet R. Feldman, PhD, RN, FAAN,Pace University
