Transformational Leadership

The Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) in a Magnet organization develops a strong vision and well-articulated philosophy, professional practice model, and strategic and quality plans in leading nursing services. The CNO communicates expectations, develops leaders and evolves the organization to meet needs and strategize priorities. Nursing leaders throughout the organization support and advocate these initiatives to staff and patients.

The CNO is strategically positioned to effectively influence all stakeholders, including the board of directors. Executive-level nurse leaders report to the CNO, who in turn, reports to the Chief Executive Officer.

The nursing organization is continually assessed and strategic and quality plans for nursing and patient care are developed and aligned with the organization. 

The CNO develops structures, processes and expectations for staff nurse involvement. Mechanisms must be in place for evidence-based practice throughout the organization. The CNO is an executive leader and advocate for nurses and patient care. The CNO is visible, accessible and communicates effectively in an atmosphere of mutual respect so that nurses’ voices are heard, the input valued and their practice supported.
