Nursing Education Leadership
Keywords:Leadership, Nursing education
In the 21st century, higher education institutions are facing demographic, social, and economic challenges and changes that have positive and negative effects on the healthcare system, nursing, and nursing education. This is such a big turning point for nursing education in which all educational administrators must develop their leadership. Academic leadership becomes one of the leaders’ required attributes for educational administrators. However, little is known regarding the model of nursing educational leadership. This study, therefore, aimed to explore factors of nursing educational leadership using quality synthesis. The findings from nine selected studies were summarized and categorized. The frequency of findings was used to select the proposed nursing educational leadership factors. The synthesized results showed that nursing educational leadership consisted of four elements which were 1) faculty practice, 2) curriculum and instruction development, 3) visionary, and 4) scholar work, research, and innovation conduction.
