2011 PROSE Award Winner in Nursing and Allied Health Sciences! "As a textbook, The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders offers a wonderful array of learning products... More importantly, as a treasured book that one turns to again and again, The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders will provoke new thinking and insight with each reading, inviting the reader to underline meaningful passages and write in the margins. Nurses at all levels will learn much about becoming leaders. Life is complex, and Dr. McBride's wisdom enriches and simplifies the leadership journey for everyone." --from the foreword by Joanne Disch, PhD, RN, FAAN Professor and Lillehei Chair in Nursing Leadership and Director Katharine J. Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota "McBride's book on leadership,The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders, is especially timely given the generational gap between those nearing retiring in unprecedented numbers and individuals who are in the beginning and middle of their career. McBride addresses a number of important developmental issues for young men and women in nursing embarking on a career path in which their accomplishments earmark them for leadership." ---Nursing Outlook "The apparent simplicity of the ideas presented is a tribute to the author's grasp of the subject matter. In fact, this is a book that will be dog eared whether on the shelf of the beginner or the experienced leader." Catherine L. Gilliss , DNSc, RN, FAAN Dean and Helen Fuld Health Trust Professor of Nursing Vice Chancellor of Nursing Affairs Duke University President, American Academy of Nursing Dr. McBride's concepts of leadership development honed from many years of personal experience and superb observation apply to any person seeking or in a position of leadership." Claire Fagin, PhD, RN, FAAN Leadership Professor Emerita, Dean Emerita at the University of Pennsylvania "Every level of nurse in every type of organization will benefit from this book, especially at this critical time of health care reform." Shirley S. Chater, PhD, RN, FAAN President Emerita, Texas Woman's University Chair, National Advisory Committee, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellows Progrom "This book will be helpful to any nurse or nursing student thinking about their career and their potential to influence health care. Importantly, readers come away with practical tips to inform their own development as a leader and to facilitate such development in others." Patricia G. Archbold, RN, DNSc, FAAN American Academy of Nursing "The Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders is a personally revealing soul print story that is professionally enlightening. McBride challenges nurses to be excellent and shares her sense-making about transformational leadership. Use this book as a mirror for looking at self as well as a resource and guide for sustaining optimism and leadership aspirations in the context of a full and rewarding career in nursing." Daniel J Pesut, PhD RN PMHCNS-BC FAAN Indiana University School of Nursing, Indianapolis "Whether you are an accomplished leader or somewhere along the path this book is a "must read." Angela McBride has surely outdone herself in developing this inspirational piece...As someone new to leadership, the book offers a path that is not proscriptive, but rather guiding one toward self-awareness, understanding of others, and helpful strategies. For the mid-career leader, the book offers some comfort and reinforcement of direction. For someone who is seasoned, the insights remind one of the successes of the past and what is possible for the future." Harriet R. Feldman, PhD, RN, FAAN Pace University "I have always recommended that nurses should read anything and everything ever written by Dr. Angela McBride. However for this new book, I would go much further and tell the nurses that this book is a must for every nurse. I believe that any reader of this book will learn how to uncover and value their own experiences, affirm their capacity for leadership, and will look at leadership through a dynamic new lens. This is an inspiring book that will shake up current thinking about nursing leadership and will become a catalyst for developing more transformational leaders. This book transcends time, generations, and disciplines. Afaf I. Meleis, PhD, DrPS(hon), FAAN Dean, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing "Dr. McBride unabashedly challenges traditional concepts such as empowerment while fully engaging in the importance of the authorization and use of power. The reader is mesmerized [by] the author as she recounts and relates her challenges, delays, and successes. This book will...become a treasure to the profession of nursing." Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN Chief Executive Officer, National League for Nursing Angela Barron McBride has a long and renowned history in nursing leadership and education. This book, which focuses on developing nurse leaders, carries on in the tradition of her previous successes, including The Growth and Development of Mothers, recognized as one of the best books of 1973 by both The New York Times and the American Journal of Nursing. From then to now, she has exerted leadership from many positions, which the American Academy of Nursing has celebrated by awarding her the status of "Living Legend." This book draws on her extensive leadership experience as an internationally recognized nurse scholar and pragmatist to help all nurses develop their leadership abilities. The book's three sections address the major views of leadership that have occupied center stage in recent decades: leadership as personal, leadership as achieving organizational goals, and leadership as transformational. It references both literature and personal experiences that bring timely issues to focus, from career stages and mentoring needs, to developmental tasks by career trajectory, and more. Angela Barron McBride brings a practicality and insightfulness to the subject that will empower you when considering your leadership development, no matter your specialty or career stage.
