This text provides a framework for the new nurse to launch a position as a leader in an environment that may be stressful and chaotic. Focusing on situations that require thinking about leadership in new and different ways, the text provides case scenarios of real-life situations for discussion. Interactive exercises help fine-tune the student’s critical thinking of creative solutions that establish a pattern to carry through the first years in practice toward a career of demonstrated leadership.
