In nursing, it is important to have nurses who are leaders and others who are assigned a role in
management. A nurse who is a leader is someone who has the ability to influence those around
them as well as having the ability to understand their followers. (Whitney, 2018) A nursing
leader can be either formal or informal. A formal leader is someone who has been assigned by

the organization and has duties outlined for them. Whereas an informal leader is someone who
does not have a specific title. A nurse who is a good leader shows compassion, trust, stability and
hope and obtain their power through directing and empowering others. (Whitney, 2018)
"Nursing leaders are often expected to make patient care more efficient to help reduce hospital
stays, lower risk of readmissions, and reduce healthcare costs" (2021).
A nurse who is in management is assigned by an organization and manages the day to day
operations in nursing. (2021) They have specific duties and responsibilities and focus on tasks
such as organizing, staffing, planning, supervising, making assignments, and coordinating tasks
that need to be completed. (Whitney, 2018) "A nurse manager primarily focuses on keeping
daily operations in the department as efficiently as possible… They supervise nurses and other
staff members and provide training as needed. (2021).
There are some goals in leadership and management that overlap. Some of these goals include
influencing others in a positive way, being visionary and looking towards the future, and are not
narrowly focused. Ways that leaders and management might influence others in a positive way.
It is important that both managers and leaders work on their critical thinking and problem-
solving skills in order to make good decisions for those who they are managing or leading. By
being a nursing leader, facilitating change occurs by setting an example for those who are around
you as well as being someone that others can trust. Setting standards for colleges is a great way
to facilitate change.

Hi Ashley,
Thanks for sharing and I agree with what you said. Nursing leadership is important to
healthcare. In general, the type of people that are attracted to the nursing profession are
natural leaders (Morganelli, 2021). Nurses that make great leaders have qualities like
excellent interpersonal skills, dedication, creativity, and collaboration (Morganelli, 2021).
I personally think it’s really great that we are a part of a profession that has so many
avenues to pursue leadership opportunities.

Hello Ashley, great work. Management consists of controlling a group or a set of
entities to accomplish a goal. Leadership refers to an individual’s ability to
influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute toward organizational
success. Influence and inspiration separate leaders from management not power
and control. The world needs leaders who can think beyond problems, have a
vision, and inspire people to convert challenges into opportunities, a step at a

Leadership and management might be similar but they are two different entities entirely. While
management refers to controlling a group of individuals achieve given goals, leadership on the
other hand can be defined as the ability of an individual to enable, motivate, and influence other
individuals to take part and give effort on the success of an individual (Harris & Jones, 2018).

Notably, it is the influence and the capacity to inspire that separates leaders from managers. The
goals of management overlaps with that of leadership on numerous occasions. As much as
managers take part in influencing given groups to attain its goals, they as well are involved in
leadership. On the other end, when leaders take part in planning, staffing, organizing, and
controlling, they are taking part in managerial tasks.
As a nurse leader, I can facilitate change in several ways by taking advantage of the overlap
between management and leadership. It is a good thing for a nurse to utilize their opportunities
and career to give back to the society by driving innovation out of leadership and management
overlap. Nursing leaders and nursing managers play an active role in delivering high-quality
patient care to all individuals (Sherman, 2018). As a nurse leader, serving my duties of giving
quality and effective care to all gets easier knowing the nurse managers deliver the care patients
need and that the day to day processes are delivered in a quality manner. The leadership roles
that enables me to facilitate change include overseeing my nursing team and ensuring efficient
care is availed to avoid hospital readmission and expensive healthcare costs.
