Week One Discussion Two Response to O 'Neill The addition of nurse leaders in the executive suite is essential in facilitating the perception that nurses are critical decision makers in the health care industry. Furthermore, it is imperative that a formal succession plan is incorporated in organizations to assure strategic leadership, quality care, and operational effectiveness incorporate nursing at the uppermost level of decision and influence (Trepanier & Crenshaw, 2013).

Nursing managers and leaders play a critical role in influencing the safety and quality of healthcare services on offer as well as the business of healthcare institutions. The managers and leaders individually strive towards influencing the behavior of the rest of the nursing personnel to provide direct, professional and individualized nursing care. Thus, although both of them play a mediated role, their responsibilities and style of accomplishing tasks within a health organization may differ. In practice, nursing managers and leaders are likely to employ significantly different approaches in identifying and exploiting resources within an institution and in resolving issues that may be threatening the operations of a healthcare institution.

Who will fill these positions and how will we prepare the future leaders of the nursing profession? The development of effective nursing leaders is crucial to the continued success of the nursing profession.

One who can take into consideration all of the patient data available to piece together a solution and/or plan of action which is specific to their patient so to optimize the outcome. Someone that asks questions for discovery and better understanding so to further progress towards assessing the range for best and worst case patient scenarios.
In making a journey through history, NL has transited from a domestic to a professional stage, where care is based on experience and knowledge and is moving towards gradual technification of care. Finally, nursing care is now a professional activity, which has passed from a seat of ignorance & lack of professional identity due to a lack of a body of knowledge of nursing, to a profession whose center of study is care, act of exclusive responsibility of the nurse. Nursing Practice today is dependent on specialized knowledge of care, and concepts of autonomy and leadership in the discipline that are valued today. In this way, nursing, due to its philosophical and historical conception, establishes itself in an internationally recognized position, distinguishing it as an autonomous profession in interdisciplinary work and leader in the delivery of care to individuals, families and communities (Malvarez S, 2005). 2.
