Readiness for professional nursing practice in the current diverse and complex healthcare environment requires leadership capabilities. Faculty are challenged to identify specific leadership capabilities needed by graduate nurses upon entry into professional practice and to develop models from which they can accurately and authentically assess their demonstration.
