In this assignment, you will write a 1,000-1,250-word essay describing how nursing leaders and managers approach practice issues differently. To finish this assignment, you must do the following:
Choose one of the following issues: nursing shortages and nurse turnover, nurse staffing ratios, unit closures and restructuring, use of contract employees (such as registry and travel nurses), continuous quality improvement and patient satisfaction, and magnet designation.
Compare and contrast how you think nursing leaders and managers should approach your chosen issue. Use the theories, principles, skills, and roles of the leader versus manager described in your readings to back up your argument.
Identify the approach that best fits your personal and professional nursing philosophy and explain why it is appropriate for your personal leadership style.
Determine a potential funding source for your problem. Consider federal, state, and local government organizations. For example, there are numerous grants available through the CDC, HRSA, and other organizations.
Use at least two references that are not from your text or from the course.
