The ANA You Series touches on all the important issues that you face in your daily practice as a registered nurse (RN). Whether at the bedside or in the boardroom, leadership is a critical skill set for all RNs. The You Series can help you create a safer and more effective workplace environment and achieve skills for success.
Being a nurse requires more than just caring for patients. It also requires professional awareness in the work environment and a full understanding of your nursing duties and obligations. As an RN, your knowledge expands far beyond clinical acumen and practice. Your skills must include a level of leadership, communication, and collaboration that enables you to make effective and ethical decisions. Most importantly, you have a responsibility to yourself and your patients, families, and community to make your health and well-being a priority through self-care.
