Group members need to assume AP roles (clinical and non-clinical) either by volunteering or being assigned by the group leader. A group leader must be decided and may be a nurse manager/nurse administrator, CNS, NP (maybe more than one and from different specialties), NI, and NE. CNLs and RNs may be also be part of the group scenario. (there are 4 group members)
All members are expected to demonstrate leadership knowledge and skills, but also must be willing to follow. Each group will demonstrate the core competencies and principals of transformational leadership in the group work. (See rubric). The final evidence of the group work will be power point presentation that discusses the scenario addressing the assigned domain, the roles and the outcomes.
The master’s prepared nurse demonstrates leadership in the four domains: the profession of nursing, clinical practice arena, health policy arena, and systems level. The impact could be found in health promotion, disease prevention/management, quality improvement and/or within management of a health system.
In conclusive remarks, search and agree upon a quotation from a library article related to leadership in an advanced nursing role and include with how it applied to your clinical decision/management issue of your assigned domain. Leadership journals from SOU Library are The Journal of Nursing Scholarship or Nursing Leadership Forum or the American Journal of Nursing, Journal of Nursing Administration, Nursing Administration Quarterly, Nursing Management or Health Care Management Review
“transformational leaders who set clear expectations, praise employees for good performance, are fair, and are concerned about employees may play a part in bringing about feelings of attachment to one’s work and psychological safety”

Disease Prevention: Obesity in school age children is a significant problem. Melissa, a former elementary school teacher, is a new CNL who has recently joined her state nursing association and is passionate about the 30% or more of the students being over-weight. The local nursing association is looking for a community project to address disease prevention. Melissa has approached the officers with her concern. What AP roles, core competencies and support are needed to make this happen?
