Transformational Leadership Style: Implication for Nursing Practice


Ogenyi Chika F.

Nurse leaders are responsible for fostering an atmosphere of ongoing education and
professional growth via the mentoring of their fellow nurses. They also serve as role
models for younger nurses, some of whom may eventually advance to leadership positions
within the nursing profession. Accordingly, building strong nurse leadership abilities are
very necessary for those who work in the nursing profession and want to develop their
careers. To develop one’s leadership potential, it is frequently necessary to hone in on a
core set of abilities that are particularly applicable to nursing administration. These
abilities include the ability to make decisions, provide direction, resolve conflicts,
effectively communicate, and adjust to changing circumstances. Nurse leaders are
continually required to make choices, both big and little, ranging from the formulation of
rules for the nursing staff to the upkeep of patient records. Nurse leaders are looked up to
by resident nurses and other junior nurses for decision-making and guidance on a day-today basis. Skills in efficient, unambiguous, and effective decision-making will result in a
health sector that is more structured and pushed in the direction it should go. Nurse
leaders are therefore required to use interpersonal and motivational leadership tactics in
order to effectively lead the individual and group of trainee nurses who report to them.
Within the context of the health care system, this paper reviewed transformational
leadership style and its implication for nursing practice.
