Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Using real histories from participants on the ICN Leadership for Change programme, this book explores in depth the leadership challenges facing nurses internationally. Nurses from more than 50 countries have completed the programme and their achievements make amazing reading. This text embodies the best aspects of international nursing leadership and testifies to the influence the ICN has had on nursing worldwide. It should be read by every nurse who sees the need for change."
Nursing Standard

"This book is a useful, easy to read and informative text suitable for experienced nurses wishing to develop their own leadership knowledge and skills."
Nursing Times, 2 October 2007

'The courage, wisdom and enthusiasm manifest in these exemplars makes the book quite unique and lifts it from being another (albeit very useful) leadership textbook into a league of its own... It is a worthwhile and enriching read and would be excellent material for professional practice subjects at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.'
