Designed to inspire nursing professionals worldwide to step into leadership roles, this book traces the paths of 12 legendary yet contemporary nurse leaders through the pivotal times in their lives that helped transform them into leaders, and thereby change the face of nursing.

Through thought-provoking essays and follow-up questions, this book will challenge the old thinking that leaders are born with a path and a vision laid out for them.

You will see how Loretta Ford, in response to a health care provider crisis, transformed the nursing profession and initiated a paradigm shift that changed the delivery of health care; how Gretta Styles&rsquos decision not to become a nun started her on the path to being an internationally recognized expert in nursing regulation and credentialing; how Sue Donaldson helped define the discipline of nursing through the course of daily cafeteria conversations; and how Luther Christman confronted discrimination and changed legislation and minds everywhere.

Each of the 12 essays reveals as much about the individuals as about the art of being a leader. Learn the lessons of these leaders and take the challenge that their experiences offer.
