Leadership within the healthcare field is necessary to increase skills, organization, understanding, and control within the workplace (Huber, 2014). The leadership role tends to fall into the hands of one who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, motivating, committed, and adequately communicates to the team (Huber, 2014).

Health care organizations require excellent management and leadership to keep the institutions running effectively. I agree with you that the Nurse Executive (NE) contribute to senior leadership by giving nursing a voice and oversee many functions in the organization.

Clinical nurses faces many challenges to use the EBP and that where the NE intervenes since they have the persuasive and decisional power to make EBP utilized within the organization.

The only way to help RNs maximize the available resources is through improving their delegation skills. If a nurse is to be delegated a task, it should be within their scope of nursing and also be tasks they are qualified to perform.

A few identified strategies that enable nurses to keep up the current policies include focusing on the changes in your department that is relevant to your practice.
After reviewing Healthy People 2020 goals for maternal, infants, and child I can see that an APN can play many different roles to achieve these goals.
