Make a choice from one or more leadership topics in your textbook or from a peer-reviewed scholarly source from a previous discussion or assignment in this course and write about how it applies to nursing practice. Defining terms, a brief history/background, and the main concepts of the chosen topic are required. Analyze and describe at least three different nursing roles in order to describe the topic’s function in nursing practice (for example, bedside nurse, public health nurse, CNO, unit manager, etc.). Discuss how the topic of leadership can be applied to your own professional practice. Disseminate your personal development in relation to your chosen leadership topic. Personal strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to your career advancement should all be considered.

Then, talk about the top three characteristics you believe make a good nurse leader. Provide examples from your practice experience as well as from scholarly sources to support your claims.
