The ongoing nursing shortage has generated numerous changes in the nursing manager role, as the exemplary functioning of nursing leadership has become increasing crucial to the priority of continuing to delivery quality patient care (Heller, et al, 2004). Consequently, there has been a huge interest in nursing research on the topic of leadership in recent years. However, Redfern points out that while nursing managers are required to be effective leaders, managerial skills are also important as "leadership without management is an abdication of responsibility that can lead to disaster" (Redfern, 2008, p. 10). As this statement emphasizes, both leadership and management are essential to achieving the goals of nursing and both factors must intertwine synergistically to achieve nursing goals.
