You have a BIG day at work. Everything you’ve been working on for the past quarter falls on today: endless meetings of paramount importance, intense strategy-planning sessions, and hundreds of small, but essential, tasks that must be completed. Your reputation, livelihood, and emotional stability are at stake. You feel like you’re about to storm the beaches at Normandy. Relax (but not too much): Your professional skill and prowess got you to this point.

This is particularly true of nursing leaders, who can help organizations by taking a more proactive role in patient care and, in effect, improving quality and bolstering the bottom line.
