OBJECTIVE: The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Program was designed to transform care at the bedside by empowering clinical nurses as leaders. BACKGROUND: The heart of LEAD was enhancing communication skills of clinical nurses with clinical colleagues and, most importantly, patients and families. Key concepts of leadership/management were included: personal awareness, personal leadership skills/abilities, leading change, leading others individually and in teams, enhancing the patient/provider experience, and the leadership role in outcomes management. METHODS: A quantitative, longitudinal, survey design was used with 2 cohorts. The program consisted of six 4-hour sessions for 3 to 6 months. Leadership practices were measured before program implementation, at the end of the program, and 3 months after program completion. RESULTS: There were significant increases in leadership practices sustained 3 months after program completion. A range of other outcome measures was included. CONCLUSIONS: There is a need for additional leadership development programs for clinical nurses.

AIM: This study was focused on determining relationships between confidence levels and self-efficacy among nurse managers. BACKGROUND: Frontline nurse managers have a pivotal role in delivering high-quality patient care while managing the associated costs and resources. The competency and skill of nurse managers affect every aspect of patient care and staff well-being as nurse managers are largely responsible for creating work environments in which clinical nurses are able to provide high-quality, patient-centred, holistic care. METHOD: A descriptive, correlational survey design was used; 85 nurse managers participated. RESULTS: Years in a formal leadership role and confidence scores were found to be significant predictors of self-efficacy scores. CONCLUSIONS: Experience as a nurse manager is an important component of confidence and self-efficacy. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT: There is a need to develop educational programmes for nurse managers to enhance their self-confidence and self-efficacy, and to maintain experienced nurse managers in the role.
