New Sigma title gives voice to and shares stories from nurse leaders during crisis

Nursing Leadership During Crisis book coverINDIANAPOLIS— Leaders must know who they are, what they know and don’t know, what they aspire to be, and what motivates them. In Nursing Leadership During Crisis: Insights Guiding Leaders From the Covid-19 Pandemic, a new title from Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma), authors Carolyn Miller Reilly, Barbara Kaplan, an
Tim Porter-O’Grady acknowledge the changing landscape of crisis management precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic and begin to guide nurse leaders into the future. This book assists nurses in developing leadership thinking and critical skills by examining the thinking, actions, and reflections of nurse leaders in crisis.

Nursing Leadership During Crisis is set apart from other crisis management texts by its emphasis on reflection. Using first-hand accounts and reflections of nurse leaders on the front lines during the height of the pandemic, readers will be encouraged to reflect on their own leadership development before and during Covid-19 as well as into the future. Alongside these accounts, the authors provide tools for a lifelong journey of development and assimilation of attitudes, skills, and behaviors to help readers establish their own leadership persona and better prepare themselves for future crises. 

“Nurses live at the center of health systems,” said author Tim Porter-O’Grady. “This creates a unique opportunity and places a special burden on them to provide effective leadership.” Nursing Leadership During Crisis introduces a mature perspective that integrates theoretical frameworks, ideals, and processes directly from the frontlines for a timely and important work for all seasoned and aspiring nurse leaders.
