Chapter 17: Developing nurse leaders for well-being and performance
Nurse leaders are working in a complex and fast-changing environment. Thus, the subject of nurse leaders’ well-being is important to explore. Factors that contribute to their overall well-being have been identified as social support and a collaborative culture, autonomy in their work, and the meaning of their leadership roles. The authors conducted a survey of nurse leaders in hospital settings to confirm these general findings, as well as to ascertain additional elements of their well-being. They discovered that positive relations, personal growth, and purpose in life were the three predominant dimensions of well-being for nurse leaders. Strategies for individual nurse leaders to develop their well-being in each of these dimensions as well as organizational recommendations are presented.
