This subject requires students to explore nursing leadership in contemporary practice and the influences that have shaped its evolution from global and local perspectives. Students are asked to consider themselves as leaders and prepare for leadership. A clear expectation is established that all registered nurses, including new graduates, demonstrate leadership that contributes to the quality and safety of patient care and promotes an essential nursing perspective in interprofessional healthcare endeavours. Students develop an understanding that nursing leadership at all levels is critical to the sustainability and development of the profession. The subject motivates students to engage with their profession in a responsible and honourable way, develop a sense of constructive agency and ultimately positively influence the work lives of others.
