Abstract or Summary

This concept analysis explores the terms leadership and management and their application in the Clinical Nurse Manager position. Clinical Nurse Manager leadership and management preparation, understanding and application impacts on patient care delivery and outcomes (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2007; Herrin & Spears, 2007; Stanley, 2006). Interpretation and understanding of the concepts of leadership and management are inconsistent, and the terms are used interchangeably within verbal dialogue and literature. In addition, leadership and management are often specific to the context in which they are used. However, consistency in leadership and management application is an important factor in optimising patient care and outcomes in health care. This work hopes to further contribute to academic knowledge surrounding the concepts of leadership and management within the nursing context and the Clinical Nurse Manager position.
